Probably some of you will remember from 2013 the announcement of The R&A and the United States Golf Association (USGA). They proposed to amend the Rule 14-1B and to prohibit anchoring the golf club in making a stroke. This new rule will be effective from 1 January 2016 at the beginning of the next 4-year Rules cycle. If you would like to read more about the new rule than you can find it here.
Somehow BioMech the manufacturer of AccuLock ACE putters found a “niche on the shield”. Other interesting in these putters that they are optimized upon body’s physiology and physics. ACE features a long shaft that is angled slightly forward to put the golfer in an anatomically optimal position.
BioMech believes in getting the golfer to stand taller, thus golfers will be able to control better their stroke, rolls and putts. Unfortunately, BioMech did not go beyond the optimization of the golfer’s stroke position. What about the surface of the putter? Is it negligible? This is why I think Odyssey Golf’s Odyssey Works putter line is more promising, thanks to its Fusion RX insert.
The BioMech AccuLock ACE putter is available directly from the manufacturer at biomechsports.com, as well as through select green-grass retailers. The BioMech AccuLock ACE putter is available in standard lengths from 39 to 47 inches. Retail price is $279.99.
