Its first entry is the Spider Interactive putter, which uses a mixture of sensors and data to track stroke metrics and improvement over time. This is the also TaylorMade’s first completely integrated sensor product, skipping previously-required add-ons that were bulky and unattractive.

Spider Interactive will track a variety of metrics, including back and forward stroke, tempo, rotation and more. Aside from packing in all of this technology, the Spider putter is an attractive addition to any bag, its non-sensored version already being one of the most popular clubs in TaylorMade’s lineup.
