I recently had the opportunity to have a conversation with Tim Mooney, a Managing General Partner, at Kenny Giannini Putters. I have been testing the G-2 Chubby for about two weeks now and will post the review of this phenomenally made putter in the next week. If you have never heard of Kenny Giannini Putters hop over to their website and check them out, I would put them up against any of the big name putter companies on the market.
AGG: Kenny Giannini is a newer name in the putter market, but I’ve heard his name before what experience with Putter’s does Kenny have?
TM: Kenny was the head putter designer at the Ben Hogan Company, Cleveland Golf and Mizuno and has been making putters for some 35 years.
AGG: What sets Kenny Giannini apart from other boutique putter makers on the market?
TM: Kenny’s approach is about how the putter sets up, always square, a classic look and a feel off of the face that is second to none.
AGG: Do you own any patents?
TM: We have trademarked “Soft Slotted Face Technology”referring to the slot in the sole of all of our putters.
AGG: Can people find your putter’s anywhere beside your website?
TM: We just completed a deal placing our putters in PGA Tour Superstores and are working on other national retailers. Additionally we are in several ‘green grass’ facilities. We regularly update our website as we add retail establishments.
AGG: Does Kenny Giannini have any tour presence with their products currently?
TM: Our website indicates players currently with Kenny Giannini Putters. http://kennygianniniputters.com/on-tour/
AGG: Do you have a specialized fitting process? How do you help a consumer purchase the right putter for them?
TM: We use the Mitchell fitting process when the customer is available, otherwise we recommend that a person visit their local, qualified club repair shop for adjustments.
AGG: Being such a great mind in the putter industry, what is one tip you follow when putting that our readers would benefit from?
TM: The most important thing about using our putters is the squaring of the face. Effectively ‘releasing the toe’ is what causes the face to square at impact.
I would highly recommend you head to your nearest PGA Tour Superstore, if there is one in your area, and take a look at Kenny Giannini putters. You might be as hooked as I am.
