TaylorMade Releasing Spider Limited and Spider Limited Red Putters - Inspired by Jason Day

On the back of Jason Day’s emphatic win at THE PLAYERS Championship, TaylorMade Golf has announced the release of the new Spider Limited and Spider Limited Red putters, both inspired by the No. 1 player in the OWGR and one of the Tour's best statistical putters, Jason Day. 


During his storybook rise to No. 1 late last fall, Day came to the TaylorMade team with a request for a putter similar in style to his trusted Itsy Bitsy prototype (the putter he’s used for multiple wins on the PGA TOUR, including his first major victory at the 2015 PGA Championship).

Day asked for a putter that incorporated red, one of his favorite and most sentimental colors.  Using the Redback Spider, a venomous spider indigenous to Day’s native Australia as inspiration, the TaylorMade team embarked on a mission to create a palate of color options, working intimately with Jason throughout the process to create a color Jason would prefer. 


When the final color was selected, Jason proposed the team build him two different models, each showcasing the color in a different way that would allow him to test and select which suited his eye before determining which would be put into play. 

Day was first introduced to the putters in February, and after testing both models, the Spider Limited Red made its PGA TOUR debut at the RBC Heritage in mid-April and was used to win THE PLAYERS Championship last Sunday. 


Both models feature subtleties recognizable by the best players in the world, including Day, who prefers a seamless top crown sans alignment aid.  The two models available at retail will differ slightly from Day’s personal putter, which will include the alignment aid on the crown. 

The Spider Limited putters provide improved stability and high MOI.  A 304 stainless steel frame combined with a lightweight 6061 aluminum body enables weight to be positioned at the extremities.  And similar to the original Itsy Bitsy, both new models incorporate a milled Aluminum Pure Roll insert with a gunmetal finish to promote better forward roll, increased directional accuracy and improved distance control. 


The Spider Limited and Spider Limited Red will be available June 3 at $219 & $299, respectively.  The Spider Limited is available in 33”, 34” & 35” lengths while the Spider Limited Red is available in 35” lengths only.
