Hunter Mahan Wins Accenture Match Play Championship With New PING Nome Putter
Mahan never trailed in the finals, where he made seven of his 35 birdies for the week. Starting with the 6th, he won four out of five holes to build a 4-up lead after 10. The performance was typical of his dominating week -- he went his last 74 holes without falling behind in a match. He was consistently superb on the greens, and in interviews he repeatedly gave credit to the new mallet-style Nome. On Monday of the Match Play, an alignment session on the putting green using a laser device showed he was aiming left of the hole. With the face-balanced Nome, he aimed squarely at the hole and made putts. After a nine-hole practice round, the Nome went in his bag.
“I made a putter switch to the PING Nome and it felt great on the greens immediately,” Mahan said of his fourth career win, which elevated him to a career-best 9th in the Official World Golf Ranking. “This win gives me a lot of confidence. That’s how you separate the great players from everyone else – with wins – especially at the big events, and it doesn’t get much bigger than this, except the majors. So this is really special.”
The PING Nome putter burst onto the scene when Hunter Mahan won the Accenture Match Play Championship, having just made the switch from a traditional blade putter. The Nome is precision milled from a high-grade aluminum and finished with a durable Nano nickel coating. An optimized CG and MOI from lightweight aluminum framing and tungsten sole weighting allow the mallet style head to have a smooth feel for enhanced touch on the greens.

Amazing feel and unbelievable forgiveness. Gives a whole new reputation to mallet putters and I love putting with it. Ping knows what they're doing and they make great products like these for amateurs to really enjoy the game of golf!
