BONITA, CA –Knuth Golf’s company mission has always been to design golf clubs for low to high handicap golfers to achieve more greens in regulation for lower scores instead of designing clubs for Tour pros. Consistent with their mission, Knuth Golf ‘s 257+ metalwood continue to rack up awards and accolades from golf media with its third significant award winning technology.
Golfin’ Around TV Show has chosen Knuth Golf ‘s 257+ metalwoods has the Golf Equipment of the Year for 2020.
And veteran writer/broadcaster Tony Leodora has named Knuth Golf ‘s 257+ Turf Glider Sole technology on his annual Tony’s Top 10, a list of top products created following the annual PGA Merchandise Show, conducted virtually this year.
The Knuth 257+ driver and fairway woods now feature three unique technologies that have combined to make these clubs among the most decorated in the industry every year since they were first introduced five years ago.
The first was the “Optimum CG Technology” which received widespread rave media reviews and industry honors. Gary Van Sickle of Sports Illustrated wrote this was the “best of any new technology of any club,” because you “do not need a physics degree to know how much this will help amateur golfers compared to the major brands.”
The second was the “3 Trampoline Technology” which remains the only technology that takes advantage of the USGA Equipment Rule change that permits a hotter face outside the center of the face that the industry thought was impossible. This technology also received widespread media awards and praise.
Tony Leodora, host of the award-winning Golf Talk Live radio show in Philadelphia and Traveling Golfer TV show on Comcast, named the 3-Trampoline Technology “the most significant new technology in almost 25 years for amateurs to achieve more distance, and why it makes 257+ the best clubs for amateurs.” Golf Tips Magazine recommended its readers to buy “High Heat 257+ clubs, because they provide the same distance across the face for more greens and lower scores with trampoline average values of 266 compared to major brands historically low trampoline values 158-208 which is the ultimate reason amateurs’ approach shots often fall short of the green for higher scores.”
The third is a novel Turf Glider Sole Technology (“TGS”) on the sole of the fairway woods and hybrids. Knuth Golf addresses amateurs hitting “fat” and “thin” shots because they always fall short of the green and most of time end up with a bogey or worse. It is unlike any other sole design that makes 257+ easier for amateurs to get the ball airborne for significantly more distance from all types of lies, even rough, fairway bunkers, and divots. It does so by correcting a swing flaw that hits behind the ball and would otherwise lead to a “fat” shot by lifting up the front head before contact so the head glides through the turf and squarely hits the ball with the full face. For the “thin” shot it lifts the back of the head to accomplish the same objective.
Golf Tips Magazine wrote that “with its novel Turf Glider Sole Technology compensates for amateurs’ swings which will lower amateur scores even more for the reasons below and is why they are magical.”
- You cannot “dig” these fairway woods even if you try, so no more “fat” shots.
- Your fairway woods and hybrids glide easily through difficult fairway conditions or the rough without significant loss of distance.
- Your hybrids will easily glide through a divot.
- You can even hit from fairway bunkers with significantly more distance.”
Leodora included 257+ metal woods in his Tony’s Top 2021 Ten List. In providing this assistance he stated that “the best fairway woods and hybrids for the amateur golfer just got better.”
Golfin’ Around TV Show host Randy Tantlinger was just as emphatic in his appraisal of the Knuth Golf products.
“These clubs from Knuth Golf helped me, the high handicapper,” he said. “Dean Knuth, the guy who invented these golf clubs, helped create the USGA’s handicap system. This guy is a genius, and he has put that genius to work on these metalwoods. Dean knows technology, he knows science and he knows the USGA rules. From that knowledge he has created this technology.”
Gary Van Sickle of The Morning Read, wrote: “The rounded soleplate and leading edge make the High Heat 257+ Hybrid easier to hit out of bad lies, rough and fairway bunkers.” Click here for the entire review.
And Ed Travis of The A Position, stated: “The Turf Glider Sole (TGS) is now built into all the High Heat 257+fairway woods and hybrids and it’s a tremendous confidence booster. Combined with the head’s low center of gravity the ball gets up and out of most any lie including fairway bunkers.” Click here for the entire review.
Knuth Golf co-founders Dean Knuth and Steve Trattner explain that 257+’s
novel Turf Glider Sole is unlike Rails that other brands use, because they do not prevent “fat” and “thin” shots.
Knuth Golf is expanding its marketing to include creating a network of retail locations in the U.S., and adding overseas distributors.

Dean Knuth, a former USGA Senior Director, designed High Heat metalwoods specifically with amateurs in mind. Amateur golfers need clubs that use nearly 50 grams of discretionary weight to optimize their much different performance needs compared to Tour pros with 115+ mph swing speeds who consistently hit on or very near the center of the face. Knuth was awarded Golf Inc. magazine’s “Top Innovator” award for innovation of golf clubs in 2016.
Steve Trattner, a former intellectual property attorney for the United States Golf Association, Pebble Beach and Pinehurst for over 20 years shares Dean’s passion of helping amateur golfers enjoy the game they love. As a result, Steve closed his law firm to assist in the development of our company’s technology and oversee the production and marketing of the High Heat 257+ metal woods.
Knuth Golf’s High Heat driver, fairway woods and hybrids have been named the “Best” in their class by several major golf media every year since they were first launched. High Heat products have also won the prestigious ING Industry Honors award for Product Ingenuity for each of its first High Heat models clubs, and then last year for its entire High Heat 257+ line of clubs with its novel 3-Trampoline Technology.
