2019 Studio Stock Series wins Golf Digest Gold
Completing the Golf Digest Hot List Gold for Bettinardi was the Studio Stock 2, their traditional blade putter and the all-new, first ever Studio Stock 28 Slotback putter. The Studio Stock lineup features five striking putters precision milled from 303 Stainless Steel in a rich Platinum finish. Each model is hand-polished with clean lines and beautiful aesthetics that are complemented by deep mill marks throughout. The entirely new Studio Stock 38 was also awarded by Golf Digest on the Hot List and was engineered from the idea to bring a more rounded, compact, cavity-back mallet to the Studio Stock line, with high MOI, forgiveness, and easy alignment.

Two-hundred and twenty-two clubs were put to the test that is dictated upon 45% Performance, 30% Innovation, 20% Look/Sound/Feel and 5% Demand in the annual golf equipment awards going on 16 straight years.
“We worked extremely hard to perfect the new Studio Stock series and Queen B lineup for 2019-2020, and with the success we saw directly from Tour in 2018, working with the world's best, we believe this is the best lineup to date we’ve offered to the everyday golfer from Bettinardi.” - Sam Bettinardi, Vice President of Golf
“All of our 2019 putters have been proven on the games biggest stage, along with rigorous testing at our headquarters where we machine the entire Bettinardi range fifteen feet from my office. In celebrating our 20th Anniversary, this lineup brings huge satisfaction in the amount of success we’ve had on Tour, the aesthetic of the entire range is simply beautiful and my son Sam Bettinardi has really made his mark on the design of our putters. Continuing to win on Tour to start 2019, and now adding the Gold medals to our lineup, is a huge satisfaction to me in our 20th Anniversary.” Said Robert Bettinardi.
