Customer Happy and Winning

11 Handicaper Christine received her brand new SeeMore FGP20 platinum on Tuesday 7th May.  Takes it out on the course for the medal after a few putts on the putting green and scores a fabulous gross 78.  Christine came for a custom fitting and took on the advise given by Melvyn for setup, posture and it certainly paid dividends.  Christine posted on Facebook :

Here it is !!!! My wonderful new SeeMore Putter ( still needs a name - any suggestions?). First outing yesterday and it was fantastic- 4 over par at WHGC. Thanks to Mel/Anne at Four Counties Golf. Great club and great technical advice - don’t ask about the measuring tape at 10.5 inches.

Christine is no longer 11 handicap and is on the road to her target of single figures.  Good luck - remember the method and putt with confidence.

 

20 Years on!!

The SeeMore Platinum Series of 100 percent milled putters do more than expand the company’s lineup of mallets and blades. What they really do is honor the company’s legendary start while showing how far it’s come at the same time.

Firstly, the SeeMore Platinum Series commemorates the 20th anniversary of the distinctive putter’s defining moment: Payne Stewart’s 72nd hole U.S. Open-winning putt at Pinehurst No. 2 in 1999. Stewart used the company’s first putter, the FGP, a curiously-shafted blade-like model that introduced two critical aspects of putter design. Those include the company’s aiming technology, called “Riflescope, in which a player is able to sense the putter is properly aligned by using lines on the heel to frame the shaft at address.

The second aspect involves the unique balance of many SeeMore putters, starting with the original. Unlike most putters up to that point, the SeeMore FGP was neither heel balanced or face balanced. It was, as the initials describe, “featuring ground plumb,” said Jim Grundberg, Seemore CEO.

SeeMore Putters - Platinum mFGP20

“The ‘featuring ground plumb’ is what we now refer to as ‘face Balanced at Impact,” he said. “It means that the putter face will naturally remain square to the natural arc of the proper putting plane at all times, naturally squaring up at the bottom of the arc.”

That familiar SeeMore head shape, which also was used in 2007 Masters and 2015 British Open wins by Zach Johnson, has been reimagined in the Platinum Series new MFGP20 head. (The “platinum” also refers to the modern 20th anniversary gift.) While the shaping on the Platinum Series MFGP20 looks similar, the update moves some of the weight from a block in the middle of the back of the head on the original to the heel and toe. That increases forgiveness, while at the same time providing a cleaner look, Grundberg said.

The MFGP20 is one of a collection of different head shapes and hosel positions in the Platinum Series lineup. The Platinum Series debuted earlier this year with the M7x blade and the M5x mallet, both with straight-in, center-shafted hosel bores and both milled from 303 stainless steel. The new models added to the Platinum Series 303 stainless steel family include the M5 HT mallet, which has a scooped out center section with heel and toe wings; the M5w HT, which features an offset shaft on the M5 HT head; the M7 Tour, which offers a more heel-shafted version of the M7x blade as well as an offset version (M7wTour); and the MTri-Mallet, a version of the M5 shape with angle cuts in the rear heel and toe portions. There’s also the SB20 Mallet, a milled 6061 aluminum, rear weighted, heel-shafted mallet that is also available in center-shafted (SB20c) and offset models (SBw20).

Platinum SB20 Mallet

“This new Platinum Series is showcasing of course our Riflescope technology, but also some different bore hole positions and shaft options for a much broader collection than what we’ve typically offered,” Grundberg said. “So many players have putted for so long with putters that have had more of a heel orientation so we wanted to showcase that the precision of our alignment system still works with both more of a heel-shafted look and an offset look.

“It really is a nice umbrella offering that will bring a lot of new players to take a look at SeeMore that maybe felt we were just too limited. We’re showing we can do more than just straight and center-shafted heads.”

The Platinum Series heads all feature an additional engraved blue line on top for a secondary source of aim and alignment. A milling pattern on the face, including aluminum inserts on the “Private Reserve” models, is designed to improve feel and roll.

The SeeMore Platinum Series putters are available in custom lengths of 30-39 inches and custom lie angles from 68-72 degrees.

Alison Nicholas using M7Tour SeeMore Putter

Referral from client was great to receive and when it turned out to be Alison Nicholas the 1997 US Open Ladies Champions we were very happy to help.

Alison wanted some new clubs to be checked out for the loft and lie - umm they did need some tweaking.  With the right equipment at hand the irons were all checked and amended to meet her needs.  Alison was then interested in the Tour Edge Exotics EXS woods and irons and took the time to do a fitting with Melvyn and try them out.  Impressed she decided to have the 3 wood and 2 hybrids, all fitted with the Accra FX2 100 shafts.  Then came the putter and following a fitting and guidance again from Melvyn on the set up and use of the SeeMore Putter opted for the Platinum fully milled M7 Tour blade.

 

 

Alison’s playing career in golf spanned from 1980 to 2004 claiming 18 Professional titles establishing herself as one of Europe’s most successful players.

Taking the game up rather late at the age of 17 did not deter her in the slightest. Within 4 years she had represented Yorkshire at county level and went on to win the 1983 British Stroke play Championship before turning professional in 1984.

Her breakthrough in the professional ranks came in 1987 winning the Weetabix Ladies British Open at St Mellion. Throughout the 80’s and early 90’s Alison was a regular winner on the Ladies European Tour.

After representing Europe in the inaugural Solheim Cup in 1990 Alison was encouraged to play in America and take on the best in the world. Improving her technique under the watchful eye of Lawrence Farmer proved successful and in 1995 she won her first Tournament in America.

The highlight of her playing career was to come two years later when she was crowned 1997 US Open Champion when she held off golfing legend Nancy Lopez to win her first major. Following this success Alison was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to women’s golf.

The Solheim Cup

Alison’s career has been in entwined with the Solheim Cup. Having represented Europe six times, with memorable victories in 1992, 2000 and 2003 Alison has also been heavily involved in role of Vice Captain (2003 & 2005) and Captain (2009 & 2011).

The events at Killeen Castle in September 2011 saw Alison captain the European Team to a dramatic and memorable victory over the Americans. The 15 – 13 win by Europe has been described as one of the greatest matches in the history of golf.

Royal Birkdale GC Host SeeMore demo day 4/8/19

On 4 August 2019 from 11-3pm there will be an opportunity to have a custom fitting and then try the range of SeeMore Putters at Royal Birkdale Golf Club.

Putting is approx 40% of the game so getting the right length, loft, lie is critical.  Take the time to view the range from the Classic Series through to fully milled Platinum Series. 

It is 20 years since Payne Stuart won the 1999 US Open and the 2015 British Open Winner has been using a SeeMore since 2004 along with a number of other prominent players on the Staysure Seniors Tour, PGA and European Tour.  Putt like a champion with a SeeMore Putter!

Left and Right hand models available.  The SeeMore method of "Hide the Red Dot" is a simple way to give you a consistent set up for every putt.

I’m quite excited! says Ged Read

I shot my best ever gross today (73 against a par of 70). I know it was only the Friday morning roll up and off the yellow pots but I’ve never hit the ball so well and accurately from tee to green. My iron play (including the 5 hybrid) is finally getting close to the consistency of the driver you made for me. I also made some great putts for birdie, which I haven’t done very often in the past (my previous birdies have usually come from close approach shots or chip ins). My distance control and accuracy have both improved dramatically with the Seemore, it’s getting to the stage where I’m disappointed if I’m not holing or nearly holing the 20 footers whereas before I was almost relieved not to 3 putt.

I took a bit more care with the preparation today with my iron shots and there wasn’t a hint of them going off to the right. They all flew dead straight and it was only the quality of the strike that affected the outcome in terms of front to back dispersion.

Sorry I’ve gone on a bit but basically thank you so much, you’ve done a great job!

His Tour Edge Exotics with Accra Golf Shafts and SeeMore Putter - FGP Original are really working well.
