Magnetic? Does it hold on tight enough when i slam my putter into my bag?

Great pics as always. I just ordered a Ghost Spider S putter.

the customizable top plate makes a lot of sense, as the optimal visual alignment aid is a subjective thing. if the execution (top plate quality, how it attaches etc.) is well thought out i'd be interested in seeing it at retail!

Somewhat reminiscent of the old Kirk Currie Wilson putters, but with the excellent Spider body and True Roll insert. Looking forward to seeing this putter in person. I wonder if all 11 top plates will be available with a retail purchase?

Doubt magnetic would be legal since you wouldn't be able to alter it during play.

I'd think so - as long as you dont change it mid-round - sort of like not tweaking adjustable drivers on the tee box?

[/quote]Great pick up, had forgotten about the Currie Putters... they also had the back weighting option... was pretty good concept... never sold though... these will Taylor Made could put a TP badge on dog poo and retail it for $29.95 at the moment /-)

Intent or actions of the player have little or nothing to do with the rules of adjustability in clubs. The USGA/R&A have some very specific requirements for adjustable clubs. In this example, whether or not this is legal depends upon how the USGA and the R&A view magnetic attachments. According section 1a (iv) in the USGA's [url="http://www.usga.org/Rule-Books/Rules-on-Clubs-and-Balls/Clubs/"]Guide to the Rules on Clubs and Balls[/url], attachments to the clubhead "[color=#000000][left]such as protective coverings, decorative items or alignment aids" are permissible "provided the item is semi-permanent."[/left][/color]


[color=#000000][left]There is already a Decision which declares decorative tape to non-conforming because of its non-permenant nature (lead tape is excluded from this via another decision), but I've never personally seen anything regarding magnetic attachment. That said, I can easily see the USGA deeming a strong magnetic bond to be semi-permenant. I have to believe TaylorMade has already worked with the USGA on this topic, so the simple fact they're at the event likely means they're legal.[/left][/color]

I believe this is only used for fitting on the practice green. After a player figures out what they like they build it for them in the tour van.

I think it would be magnetic, I dont see no other way it would hold on to the top. But like you siad it wouldnt changable during a round. Just like an adjustable driver.you can change before or after around.

I'm kind of liking this idea. I may have to try this out since my putting blows.

Wilson definitely did this years ago. Padraig Harrington used to use the putter before switching to the 2 Ball I believe...
