World’s Fastest Car Inspires World’s Most Accurate Putter

What do the world’s fastest car and golf have in common? A putter.

Golf club makers Zen Oracle have developed a putter using technology from the Bloodhound SSC (supersonic car), a rocket and jet powered car designed to reach speeds of 1,000 mph.

The putter, dubbed the Zen Bloodhound, aims to be the most accurate putter in the world, using the exact same materials found in the amazing car. It uses an “optical alignment system” which improves setup. According to the putter’s Kickstarter page, this is done by “using the fin in conjunction with the training aperture which enables the player to fix their dominant eye on the correct line.” That may sound like a bunch of technical jargon, but who wouldn’t love to own the world’s most accurate putter, regardless of how it’s explained?

Only 1,000 putters will be made, and they’ll cost you a pretty penny if you hope to own one. Currently the cheapest price to reserve yours is £1,000, or just over $1,600. If you’re superstitious, you can tack on an extra $414 to reserve one with a serial number of 007, 77, or 777.

The putters are expected to ship to backers on Kickstarter in August, but so far the project has only raised £1,410 of its £100,000 goal after one week.
