Golf Rife with skilled putters
Only a few weeks after Simon Dyson used his Rife Barbados putter to take 1st place at the Irish Open, he has won again.
Only a few weeks after Simon Dyson used his Rife Barbados putter to take 1st place in the Irish Open, he has won again.
On Sunday his Rife putter was once more in his hands when he sank the winning putt in the KLM Open to consolidate his top spot on the race To Dubai’s Top Ten list
Sharing the lead overnight, Dyson made his winning break in the final round with four birdies on the final five holes to close with a 66 and a third victory in the event that puts him alongside European greats Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer as the only players ever to have won this KLM/Ditch Open three times.
Dyson is one of the longest standing users of Rife on Tour, his latest flat stick helping him to claim his 6th European Tour victory and a €300,000 winners cheque.
Rife does not pay any player to use its products, and Dyson is just another example of the professional who puts the true roll of Rife putters ahead of endorsement money.
The secret of its great roll under pressure, according to a Rife spokesman. lies in its various patented technologies including RollGrove¿, its LieAline Custom Fitting System and a four-point adjustable weighting system.
Rife Putters LLC is the true innovator behind horizontal grooved-face putter technology, which was patented by the company as RollGrove¿ as far back as 1997.
Precisely spaced milled grooves allow the putter to gently press into the cover of the ball and grip and lift it into an instant forward roll to create the truest “no skid” roll in golf, no matter where you hit the ball on the putter face.
The LieAline¿ Fitting System, on the other hand, teaches players to automatically set-up to every putt in the same, natural set-up position.
Using a very subtle vertical notch located on the back edge of the top line, players can automatically tell whether the putter is set-up to suit their putting stroke. If the player can see the entire white sight line then the putter is set-up perfectly, if not then they use the LieAline Bending tool to bend the hosel into the ideal position for them.
Once this has been done the player can benefit from a more consistent and repeatable stroke path every time by using the sight line.
Finally, the adjustable Weighting of Rife putters allows players to apply different weight configurations to match the speed of the greens.
It also increases stability and accuracy on off centre. The four-point stability weighting system, as seen in the putters using Two Bar technology, has stainless steel weight inserts in the heel and toe. The additional rear weighting means the putter’s centre of mass is still driving through the ball as the putter face makes contact with the ball. By dispersing weight to the four furthest points of the putter you have an extra large sweet spot, which provides your overall stroke with more stability and the face remains squarer through impact.
