C ATCHING the sweet spot with even the short stroke required with a putter isn’t always as easy as it should be – and the result of a miscue is dire: yet another missed putt. The quest of EVNROLL PUTTERS, a company founded by Guerin Rife and Stephen Riley in early 2015, is to deliver virtually the same distance to virtually the same spot from centre and off-centre strikes. Twenty years ago, Rife designed putters with closely spaced grooves running across the face, allowing a putter to roll the ball smoothly at impact. While closely spaced grooves create a superior roll, they also soften the impact. Simply stated, less contact surface means less hit. In tests, a ball hit in the centre of a non- grooved putter travelled 25 feet; that same putter with grooves and just a quarter of the contact surface reached only 23.5 feet. Hitting a straight putt isn’t easy. On a 15- foot putt, a ball hit just half an inch off-centre will travel about 15 centimetres off line and five per cent shorter. Evnroll’s precise face milling imparts progressively more energy transfer on off-centre hits to roll the ball a consistent distance with every stroke. This unique milling pattern also gears the ball back to the centre. So you can roll your putts the same distance to the same spot. Each design has two small, unpainted dots on the top line of the putter, an eighth of an inch to either side of the centre cavity sightline. This gives golfers a subtle alignment reference for consistent lie angle positioning. The dots also assist the golfer on aligning breaking putts. Align the ball in front of the toe-side dot for right-to-left putts and in front of the heel-side dot for left-to-right putts. This keeps the ball travelling on the high side of the target line.
