All your effect on the golf course boils down to what happens inside the green, where, the putter is the king. Top brands regularly update their putter design to make it more efficient and accurate. Irrespective of the effort the manufacturers make, they seem to always fail to solve the alignment issue. The Cleveland TFI 2135 Putter tries to solve this problem.
The club choice, address position, and the way the putting stroke is executed differ from player to player. Almost all putter brands have an alignment line or marker to help golfers strike the center of the ball from the middle of the putter face. But, having the eyes directly above the ball every time a putter stroke is played is next to impossible.
Nearly three-quarters of the players have their eyes inside-the-line and hence see the hemisphere of the ball facing the body. From this angle, the alignment line, on the putter, might seem a little away from the middle, even though it’s at the center. The misperception can only lead to a bad putter stroke.
The Alignment Line
To rectify this flaw, the makers of Cleveland TFI2135 putters have placed the sight line, not at the base, but at a height of 21.35mm from the base of the putter. Now, there is no chance of misperception. The eyes will remain at the center of both the ball and the putter.
Once the golfers get the alignment right, they’ll strike at the center of the ball more often, they’ll be more accurate, and have better control over the distance and direction the ball. Those who use other putter brands will have no difficulty making the change. Golfers won’t feel the alignment line is raised but will know that the line is at the center of the putter and the ball. Cleveland has intentionally used a thin line to promote greater accuracy.
True Feel Innovation (TFI) Face
Cleveland has used the same True Feel Innovation (TFI) face that it first introduced in the TFI Smart Square Putter. The manufacturer has infused copper with aluminum insert and has laid it on a white copolymer substance. The innovative base design has reduced the weight of the putter face. Now, with a heavier rear end and lighter base, the putter club is less likely to twist during the stroke.
