How Jason Day's $4.45 million putter is made

JASON Day has ridden his TaylorMade putter to more than $4.4 million in earnings the past month and the company has now shown how it's made.

JASON Day has 4,455,000 reasons to love his TayorMade putter. That's how many US dollars the Queenslander has banked since missing a putt on the 18th at St Andrews to join a playoff for the Open Championship in July.

Since that harrowing moment, Day's prototype TaylorMade Ghost Itsy Bitsy Spider has been on its best behaviour.

Day used it to hole a crucial 20-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole and win the Canadian Open the week after St Andrews then holed more than 387 feet (117 metres) of putts in winning last week's Barclay's.

Add in 60 of 62 putts made inside 10 feet (best in the field) in his record setting US PGA victory at Whistling Straits and it seems unlikely Day's putter will be out of the bag any time soon.

As a prototype the putter is not available to the public though it is believed TaylorMade produced, and sold out, 20 exact replicas last month at $750 apiece.

They've also released a a video showing how the putter is made, with no shortage of attention to detail and hand crafting.

If Day continues his winning ways, especially with putting statistics like he has put up the last five weeks, expect to see more of these putters in pros' bags.

They might even release a version for the general public.
