Great news!  The Mel Sole Golf School is now an official store for Sentio Golf!  

We have putters in stock and ready to take your orders!  The new Sentio putters have floating face technology, which means the putter face is separated from the main body of the putter by a thermoplastic elastomer core.  This allows the golfer to choose the feel they want, soft, medium, or firm.  We can do any length you want and can adjust the lie angle to suit your stroke.  If you want a free fitting, just contact the golf school at 1-800-624-4653.  We would be happy to set up a putting lesson as well if you wish.  Visit the Mel Sole Golf School website for lesson fees.

Sentio Golf.

Sentio Golf, which made its debut at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show, announced today that its Sierra 101 line of putters are available for purchase on the company’s website, as well as in select retail shops.

The Acton, Massachusetts-based company’s patented floating face technology offers golfers a stainless steel putter face, which is separate from the rest of the head with a vibration-dampening thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) core, constructed through a process called insert molding.

Jim Varney, President of Sentio Golf, says the insert-molding process demands extremely tight manufacturing tolerances. Thus, Sentio’s putters are constructed at some of the highest dimensional standards in the industry. Varney also says that the TPE formulation process bonds the metal components while keeping them separate (thanks to the insert), softening the feel at impact.

The Sierra line includes three models, each with a color-coded translucent core. The cores each have a different durometer—or relative hardness—to the elastomer, affecting energy transfer, and thus feel.

Putter with floating face technology gives you 3 different feel choices!

  • 101-Soft (green core): For players who usually prefer inserts or who regularly play on fast greens.

  • 101-Medium (red core): For all-around conditions.

  • 101-Firm (blue core): For fans of all-milled putters or those who play on slower greens.

Several years ago, I toured the Mizuno factory and R&D department in Atlanta, GA.  What fascinated me the most was how they tried to strive for the exact pitch (or sound) the club made at impact.  It was explained that when people were asked to describe the feel, they usually describe what they are hearing rather than what they are feeling.  So this article by  Mike Stachura of Golf Digest Stix makes perfect sense to me.  Check it out!

6 New Models

The company’s new RSX line of putters is inspired by a Japanese model from 2008.

Odyssey Brings Science to Sound in New Line

It’s easy, especially when you’re talking about the often more-art-than-science business of putter design, to believe sound is something ephemeral and, for lack of a better word, non-engineerable. It’s something you might arrive at, but not something that can be orchestrated.

The team at Odyssey seriously put that belief to rest by taking a decidedly scientific approach to achieve the right sound, with its latest series of milled putters.  The new Milled Collection RSX. According to Odyssey’s chief designer, Austie Rollinson, the sound his team sought, they took from a successful putter model originally introduced by Odyssey in Japan from 2008, the Tour Authentic Prototype #1.

Tour Authentic Prototype #1

 The challenge was to capture the slightly higher pitched sound of that solid-faced, single-piece milled design in a two-piece milled insert putter. The original was milled from a single billet of 303 stainless steel, and the new RSX is milled from 1025 carbon steel with a 17-4 stainless-steel face insert.

“We went to our computer modelers to do some finite element analysis and actually took that old model and saw how it vibrates, what parts of that putter moved, what sort of frequencies did it generate,” Rollinson says. “Then we created a new design with an insert to try to make the same sound.”

The PGA Pros play with equipment that is customized specifically for them; I get that.  

I do clubfitting myself for the average golfers that come through my school.  It makes a big difference in their games.  But to have a putter made pretty much from scratch to fit your putting stroke?  That is way cool!  Here is the process of how they made Jason Day’s putter, video, and all brought to us by  John Holmes of PGA.com. Don’t forget to go to the video link below the picture as well.

Jason Day has no sightline on his putter.

 
Welding the hosel into the proper position is a key part of the construction of Jason Day’s TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Spider putter.
 

Jason Day could probably sink putts with a monkey wrench these days.

Still, the fact is that he’s won three of his last four starts – the RBC Canadian Open, the PGA Championship, and the Barclays – with a prototype model of TaylorMade’s Ghost Itsy Bitsy Spider mallet.
Earlier today, TaylorMade posted a video that shows how its technicians build Day’s putter from scratch. It is definitely worth the 152 seconds it’ll cost you to watch it.
TaylorMade describes the putter as an Itsy Bitsy Japan model with the hosel cut off.  They then hand-weld a #3 short slant neck onto the head. Day prefers no sightline, TaylorMade says, so the technicians hand-weld in the existing line and buff the top until it’s smooth. They then coat the head with a custom acrylic to give it its grey finish.
