Awards roll in for Evnroll putters

Evnroll, the latest technologically advanced putter range from designer Guerin Rife, is celebrating after winning big in MyGolfspy’s ‘Most Wanted’ putter tests. After previously being named the ‘Best of the Best’, Evnroll later received the ‘Editors’ Choice’ award from MyGolfSpy.com.

Now the brand, which unveiled four new Evnroll Putter models at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, has started 2017 in spectacular fashion with a comprehensive double victory in the 2017 ‘Most Wanted Blade’ and ‘Most Wanted Mallet’ putter tests, conducted by MyGolfSpy.com, the independent testing and review website.

“We are absolutely thrilled to win these awards,” said Designer and CEO Guerin Rife. “To win both the blade and mallet putter tests in the same year is truly surprising.”

MyGolfSpy uses a unique metric called Strokes Gained 18 (SG18) to quantify and compare putter performance – a simple measurement defining how a given putter could be expected to impact your overall score relative to the average putter in the field. For example, a putter with a SG18 value of 1.0 could be expected to save you 1 stroke per round compared to the field average.

In the largest fully independent blade putter test in the industry, a team of 20 MyGolfSpy testers trialled 22 blade putters, recording 13,298 putts over a period of 120 hours. This test included a series of putts from 5, 10 and 20 feet, with each tester playing the equivalent of 18 holes with each putter and recording the total number of putts taken to finish each hole.

“Comprehensive putter tests like these validate our technology and help demonstrate the benefits of the gearing technology found across the entire range of Evnroll putters, blade or mallet,” added Rife.

Evnroll is heading into 2017 with four new models joining the line-up – the ER3 Wing Blade, ER7 Full Mallet and ER8 Tour Mallet – along with a classic new black version of the popular ER6 iRoll full mallet, which now also boasts three striking white sightlines on top of the head.

All four new models are CNC-milled from a block of 303 stainless steel and hand-finished in Carlsbad, California and feature the full array of performance-enhancing technologies found on all Evnroll putters, including the gearing technology described by MyGolfSpy as a ‘game-changer’.

The new models join four original head designs in the Evnroll line for 2017, from the classic style of the heel-and-toe ER1 and ER2 blades, to the ER5 Hatchback mallet and ER6 in red. Available at retail now, all Evnroll putters come in 33”, 34” or 35” lengths with an MSRP of £275 for blades (ER1, ER2 & ER3) and £300 for Mallets (ER5, ER6, ER7 & ER8).
