Having long believed that putting is the one area in golf that is badly neglected, Designer Golf was delighted to be offered the opportunity of becoming a Certified SeeMore Putting Instructor and Fitter, and we have now successfully completed their examination process. This will now allow Designer Golf to supply, fit, demonstrate and teach with SeeMore's extremely innovative and proven technology - RST, which stands for Rifle Scope Technology.
SeeMore launched as a brand in 1997 and was first brought to prominence when the late Payne Stewart switched to their FGP putter and first time out won the 1999 US Open, single putting the last three greens. The next day SeeMore sold around 30,000 putters.However, the usual growing pains caught up with them and they eventually sold out to an investment company. They never came back to prominence until the company was eventually acquired by two former Odyssey Executives, Jim Grundberg and Jason Pouilet, who set about rebuilding the brand into what is now one of the largest putter manufacturers.
Jim and Jason, together with their dedicated team did it the right way. They stuck with the original design technology and slowly added additional designs, but always maintaining their original goal: to produce the highest possible quality.
What is Rifle Scope Technology?
Rifle Scope Technology (RST) is the patented putting system developed by SeeMore Putters. It is without any doubt the most advanced and innovative method of putter alignment available, teaching you total repeatability and consistency.
When the two parallel white lines on the top of the putter head accurately frame the black lower portion of the shaft
at set-up, (illustrated in the picture on the right) it appears similar to a gun sight and indicates to the golfer that the face is perfectly square to the intended target line.
However, if it is possible at set-up to see a portion of the red spot, located behind the shaft, this indicates that the putter face is either open or closed and not therefore square to the intended target line.
So, When Scoring Really Matters...Make Sure You Hide The Red Spot!

the original FGP blade putter, used by Payne Stewart in winning the 1999 US Open. The FGP series are cast from 303 stainless steel and the faces are then precision milled for total accuracy.
These two are just a part of a range that comprises more than 36 different models, which are available in platinum, nickel and gunmetal finishes.
What makes a great putter?
What turns a good golfer into a great putter?
Every golfer can putt. Yes that is a true statement, but in reality not many golfers could be classed as great putters and yes, that also includes tour professionals.
So let's be clear here, when we play golf we actually play two totally separate games, both involving a swing mechanism, but not the same swing mechanism. The mechanics that make a good putter will not stand up on the tee, likewise the golfer with a classic swing with a driver, will not necessarily be a good putter. The basics are very simple and consist of three elements, a correctly fitted putter, good alignment and a repetitive, consistent stroke.
The more complex you make it, the less repeatable it is and the simpler you make it, the more repeatable it is and this is the key, it must be repeatable. So now is the perfect time to improve the one area of your game that can be practiced indoors and at home. At any time. Book a lesson and fitting session now and be ready when the new season starts.
Remember. You never win anything if you miss four-foot putts!
