The GEL Emerald is crowned in Canada, SeeMore releases an exciting new stick and Heavy Putter continues to forge overseas success. Here is the latest Putter Buzz on the professional tours and beyond:
1. Sometimes switching putters can bring serious magic to your game, as was the case last weekend when Tom Stankowski won the Canadian Tour Championship after making a last-minute switch to the GEL Emerald putter just prior to the tournament. Said Stankowski: “Putting was my winning formula this week, especially down the stretch. Using the GEL Emerald, I birdied 17, and then sunk a 15-footer at 18 to seal the deal.” The GEL Emerald is a uniquely shaped blade-mallet hybrid. In an earlier review of the Emerald, PutterZone.com praised the putter’s excellent combination of forgiveness, feel and accuracy.
2. The SeeMore Putter Company has added a new model to its fine family of putters: the SB1 large mallet. The SB1 is milled from 6061 aerospace aluminum, and features SeeMore’s signature RifleScope alignment technology (RST). Says SeeMore’s Jim Grundberg: “The new SeeMore SB1 produces a great roll and offers a solid, responsive feel and enhanced feedback with its aluminum head. When combined with our patented RST, it ensures that the golfer who loves a larger mallet will now be able to take advantage of the precision and proven alignment benefits of the SeeMore system.” Stay tuned for PutterZone.com’s review of the SeeMore SB1.

3. Heavy Putter’s overseas success continues as Rafa Echenique of Argentina has racked up two consecutive top 10 finishes on the PGA European Tour with a Heavy Putter B3-M putter in hand. At the Johnnie Walker Championship, he ranked first in putts per greens in regulation. The following week, he averaged 27.7 putts per round at the Omega European Masters.
