- Jason Day's TaylorMae Ghost Tour Monte Carlo 12 got a makeover.
MARANA, Ariz. — Jason Day's TaylorMade Ghost Tour Monte Carlo 12 putter received a makeover at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.
After switching to a Monte Carlo 12 last season at the Deutsche Bank Championship that featured a high-contrast topline with strong black parallel lines for alignment, Day decided to go the opposite direction with his new putter, eliminating the alignment aid all together.
"I felt like I didn't need the lines on the top anymore," Day said. "I'm trying to focus more on the cup, and the clean topline allows me to do that."
Day also noted that he looks at the leading of the putter for face angle address.
Along with the adjustment to the top of the putter head, Day made a slight change to the weights and design on the sole, adding his son's name "Dash" to the sole, and 10 grams of additional of weight.
Day had been using a Monte Carlo 12 with two 20-gram weights; his new putter now has two 25-gram weights, bringing the total head weight to 360 grams.
The new putter also has the same Masters-inspired grip and black Ghost steel shaft that were on his previous putter.
