It started with an unexpected discovery while cleaning out an old garage.
Greenwood founders Joel Luyt and Mark Wilson found an antique putter with a wooden head and immediately noticed that the resonance and feel of the wood head hitting a golf ball was unlike any other putter on the market.
“We were never interested in making a gimmick, or putters just for decoration,” said Luyt. “We wanted to actually improve people’s golf game.”
Reimagining a wood head putter meant creating prototype after prototype while they enlisted the help of PGA pros, coaches, and even architectural engineers.
The outcome? The two flagship models of Greenwood Putters: The Classic and the Tour Series Facet.
Besides standing out on the putting green with a wood head putter, Greenwood Putters are known for their soft feel and large sweet spot. Greenwood Putters are also the only solid wood head putters that are USGA approved.
“Your missed putts are going to miss by less,” Luyt shared. “From beginner to pro, every level of golfer who has tested their putter against ours, finds ours is consistently better.”
