TaylorMade Spider Putter Seen At Buick Invitational

There's always some crazy looking putters floating around the PGA Tour and this week's tournament doesn't disappoint. We have the new TaylorMade Spider putter which was seen today at the Buick Invitational. It was being played by Dustin Johnson who ended up shooting an even par round on the harder South Course at Torrey Pines. It's made the Golf Digest's 2008 Hotlist this year so we may see it more out on tour.

In addition to high-MOI features, such as enormous volume, and a variety of alignment guides, the Spider's primary attribute is the "anti skid groove system insert." Made of a lightweight but durable seven-metal alloy, the insert is designed to reduce skid and impart forward roll on the ball as early as possible. This is achieved in part by 14 tiny polymer-filled face grooves.

There's some great pictures of it at GolfWrx.com and check out the picture of Dustin's below and video.
