Rife rolls it in for Irish Open Champion
August 2, 2011

Only a few weeks after rolling his Rife Barbados to 9th place in the Open Championship, Rife helped sink the winning put in the Irish Open to take the winner 19 places up the world rankings to No.48.

Going into the final round in a 3 way tie for the lead, the eventual winner (Simon Dyson -Ed.) continued to play what he regarded as some of the best golf of his career.

2 birdies in the final 3 holes for a final round 67 saw the eventual champion exert pressure at the top of the leaderboard and with his nearest rival only managing to bogey the 18th the title was his.

The Rife Barbados putterThe winner is one of the longest standing users of Rife on Tour, with his Rife Barbados helping him to this, his 5th European Tour victory and the €250,000 winners cheque.

Just another example of the fact that despite not paying a single player to use it’s products, the pro’s keep on turning to Rife Putters to deliver a quick true roll when the pressure is on.

About Rife

The secret to the company’s success lies in its various patented technologies including RollGrove™, the LieAline Custom Fitting System and a 4-point adjustable weighting system all of which are seen in the new Two Bar Hybrid.

Rife Putters LLC is the true innovator behind horizontal grooved face putter technology, which has been patented by the company as RollGrove™ since 1997. Precisely spaced milled grooves allow the putter to gently press into the cover of the ball and grip and lift it into an instant forward roll to create the truest "no skid" roll in golf no matter where you hit the ball on the putter face.

The LieAline™ Fitting System teaches players to automatically set-up to every putt in the same, natural set-up position. Using a very subtle vertical notch located on the back edge of the top line players can automatically tell whether the putter is set-up to suit their putting stroke. If the player can see the entire white sight line then the putter is set-up perfectly, if not then you use the LieAline Bending tool to bend the hosel into the ideal position for you. Once this has been done the player can benefit from a more consistent and repeatable stroke path every time by using the sight line.

Adjustable Weighting allows players to apply different weight configurations to match speed of the greens. It also increases stability and accuracy on off centre. The 4 point stability weighting system, as seen in the putters using Two Bar technology, has stainless steel weight inserts in the heel and toe. The additional rear weighting means the putter’s centre of mass is still driving through the ball as the putter face makes contact with the ball. By dispersing weight to the four furthest points of the putter you have an extra large sweet spot, which provides your overall stroke with more stability and the face remains squarer through impact.
