SeeMore Putter has become one of the most popular independent putter manufacturers in the industry. Their unique design and putting system have grown a substantial base of loyal golfers who swear by their products. I had been hearing about them for quite some time and wanted to learn more about what makes them different.
Despite plenty of advances in design, technology, and manufacturing processes – most golfers are still purchasing putters that are based on the original Ping Anser design from more than 50 years ago. I am always on the lookout for unique products in the golf world, and SeeMore Putter certainly fits that mold.
In this review, I’ll give you a brief understanding of who the company is, what makes their RifleScope Technology different, and my impressions of their putters.
The Early Days
SeeMore Putters was launched in 1998 by golfing professionals in California. Their goal was to make a unique design, which would help a golfer feel confident that they were aligned properly before every putt. It centered around a concept that helps a golfer align the putter using a method similar to aiming a rifle. After several years of research and development, they were able to show their RifleScope technology to the world.
Like most new businesses in the golf industry, the first year was spent trying to spread awareness amongst recreational golfers and on the PGA Tour. That same year Payne Stewart had decided that he would go into the 1999 season without an equipment contract after not winning an event in four years. His goal was to fill his bag with 14 clubs that he trusted regardless of the manufacturer’s name.
He had heard about SeeMore Putter through several acquaintances and decided to give their putter a shot the week of the AT&T Pebble Beach. Payne was struggling with his putting and believed that an inconsistent forward press was changing his loft and face angle at impact. After getting a brief session on how the SeeMore technology worked, he had only one day to practice before the tournament began.
