The SeeMore Putter Company makes a triumphant return to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this year, hoping to extend its Monterey Bay winning streak after D.A. Points won last year’s tournament while wielding a SeeMore FGP putter.
As part of our ongoing coverage from Pebble Beach, we caught up with SeeMore tour representative, instructor and jack-of-all-putter-trades Ted Gallina to find out what’s new, and what’s next, from the SeeMore Putter Company.
For starters, Ted shared some new tweaks to existing favorites for 2012. For example, the Si Series putters are rolling out a new sole design, as well as a new insert that, unlike its predecessor, is completely flush with the face. The mFGP2 mallet is also getting a refresh, with the addition of two milled alignment lines along the flange to frame the ball and accentuate SeeMore’s RifleScope alignment feature.
Next, Ted broke out a couple of newcomers that you can look for later this spring: the new SeeMore “Big FGP” putter and PCB “pure center blade.” The Big FGP is a mallet with a semi-triangular flange. While the Big FGP that he showed us was a tour-only milled edition, the production model will be cast from 303 stainless steel. Like the new mFGP2, the Big FGP features two vivid alignment lines for framing the ball and defining the target line.
The SeeMore PCB putter is a center-shafted, face-balanced blade that, unlike many face-balanced putters, resists twisting open in the resting position. For golfers who want the assurance of a mallet but the look of a blade, this golf putter is going to be a godsend. The look and balance are pure. There’s no offset, no toe hang, and no unnecessary design flourishes. Throw in the RifleScope alignment system, and you’ve got a stick that’s set to get you square and keep you square through impact.
The Big FGP and PCB will both belong to SeeMore’s FGP family. The FGP putters start at $150 and offer remarkable value, so they should hit the ground running upon release.
As if on cue, while we were chatting with Ted, Zach Johnson (pictured here) stepped onto the practice green and started stroking putts with the same original SeeMore FGP that he has used to win the Masters and numerous other tournaments. Is another victory at Pebble Beach in the stars for SeeMore this year? Stay tuned…
