Today we continue our series of stories from inside the tour vans and around the putting green at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Now on the tee: the SeeMore Putter Company.
We meet SeeMore co-owner Jason Pouliot on the glorious practice green adjacent to The Lodge at Pebble Beach.
Jason is a high-energy, upbeat guy with a quick smile. A few feet away, numerous tour professionals are practicing with a variety of putter brands and styles. Jason doesn’t seem overly concerned about getting them to try a SeeMore putter—he’s there to help, not to sell.
Anyhow, SeeMore doesn’t need to be too anxious when it comes to tour validation, since their putters have notched major victories at the U.S. Open and Masters. And as it would turn out, a player using a SeeMore putter—D.A. Points—would lead the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am after Thursday’s opening round.
All SeeMore putters feature the company’s signature RifleScope Technology (RST), whereby you visually align the shaft at setup so that it hides a red dot along the crown of the putter. In that position, the shaft is framed by two white lines, communicating proper alignment.
Jason says that SeeMore is increasingly emphasizing education, with a focus on young amateurs and recreational golfers. SeeMore has published a putting fundamentals manual by Pat O’Brien, a SeeMore consultant and a leading putting instructor who counts Masters champion Zach Johnson among his clients. SeeMore has also launched a national teacher credential program based upon O’Brien’s methodology and the SeeMore alignment system.
On the practice greens at professional tournaments, you typically get a glimpse of “what’s next” from the putter companies, and SeeMore is no exception today.
Jason shows off the new SeeMore ONEcs blade (pictured above) and the SeeMore DB4x mid mallet. Like the DB4 blade, the DB4x putter brings the SeeMore RifleScope alignment system to an offset hosel. The SeeMore ONE putter is a carbon steel blade with a scooped flange and curvaceous cornering. Stay tuned at PutterZone.com for more details on these new 2011 putters from SeeMore.
