Bettinardi’s mission statement is to strive for perfection and do things unlike any other golf company. They finish off that statement by concluding “There are many ways to make a putter, but there is only one way to make a Bettinardi; Precision, Performance, & Excellence”.

What does that mean to you? Well once you pick up a Bettinardi you will understand. I love the balance and weight, as soon as I pick up the Studio Stock 2 putter and look down, have a few practice swings and see the clubs finish, I knew I had a quality weapon in my hands.


The Studio Stock 2 putter is fashioned from Bettinardi’s classic BB-8 style head, Milled from a solid block of soft carbon steel. The machinability of this steal gives the Studio Stock 2 its unforgettable feel at impact. The hozel is moved slightly forward toward the toe giving it a traditional Ping anser type appearance.

The new Super Fly-Milled face gives plenty of feedback at impact. Weight has been distributed to the putters extremes for improved perimeter weighting and stability. The Olympic Bronze finish featured across all three Studio Stock models is what gives the putter its confidence inspiring stunning finish.


In three words, I loved it. I loved every minute I played with it. The balance, the feel and the number of putts I hold from heathland courses like The Carrick to the wind swept greens of Royal Aberdeen and Castle Stuart, Bettinardi’s Studio Stock 2 putter stood up to the test.

Yes the Bettinardi is an expensive piece of equipment but when you add up the amount of times it gets used in a round of golf, its importance in the bag and to your scoring ability, it is worth every penny and it is a putter I would highly recommend you test before you make your next purchase.
