If there’s one thing all amateurs can afford to get better at, it’s putting. Doesn’t matter how good you are from tee to green, if you can’t make putts you’ll never be the player you want to be.
Over the years, as the golf equipment industry has boomed with gimmick after gimmick guaranteeing to make you a better putter, Cleveland Golf has finally produced the real deal, something that will actually make you better — fast.
Their new TFI 2135 putter features the latest advancement in
What makes the new Cleveland TFI 2135 putter special is a the alignment line on the back of the putter. While most putters have the alignment line below the center of the golf ball, the TFI 2135 moves the line up to 21.35 millimeters off the ground — directly in the middle of the golf ball.
So how does this help you and your putting? Simple — different players have different sight lines when they look over the ball. Some look straight down over the ball, some players look slightly inside the ball and the rest of us, slightly outside the ball.
By moving the alignment line up to 21.35 millimeters, now every player sees the line at the same spot, meaning that now, no matter where your eyes are relative to the ball, you won’t miss the line on the putt.
Simply put — all those putts you’ve thought you hit right and still missed were, in fact, your putters fault. With the Cleveland TFI 2135, that will no longer be the case.
It seems like any time you have an “innovation” that comes along to change the game, the comfortable aesthetic also gets changed. With the TFI 2135, that’s not the case. This putter maintains the classics, sleek look that a good flat stick should have.
The copper-plated face adds a another undeniable element of style that really makes this putter pop without being flashy, something that is a must for a golfer who doesn’t want to sacrifice form for function or vice versa. It’s easily one of the coolest looking putters on the market today.
As a player who spent most of his life longing to own a Scotty Cameron putter (and I still love mine!), the Cleveland TFI 2135 putter is the first I’ve found since since my Del Mar that I can’t live without.
From the first roll, I knew this putter was going to be fun to play with. The copper-infused face plate made for very smooth, pure feeling that is unmistakable for any one who has ever hit a perfect putt. There’s no doubt when you strike the ball that it’s going to do what you want it to.
From grip to heel, this putter just feels right in your hands and looks great in the bag.
The Cleveland TFI 2135 putter did exactly what the company said it would — helped get the ball on the correct line regardless of where your eyes are relative to the line of the putt.
Honestly, before I had the chance to put this club in play, my putting had been a source of incredible frustration. I would hit putts I thought were perfect and they always managed to wander astray or never quite take the break I thought they would — but the first round I played with the TFI 2135, I found myself making more and more putts.
In fact, over the course of the entire round, I only needed 28 putts — down from an average of 33 over my last 5 rounds.
It’s hard to argue with results like that, and, despite it being a small sample size, I’m really looking forward to seeing how the next few rounds play out with it.
Rarely, it seems, do you get to see such tangible results the first time you use a new club, but that was the case with the TFI 2135. I’m not suggesting you’ll see the same results I did, but it’s certainly worth a try.
If you feel like you hit good putts but find yourself missing more than your fair share, you could be a victim of your alignment being off due to your eye line. If that’s the case, I highly recommend demoing — or even buying — the Cleveland TFI 2135 putter as soon as you can.
