Sanford, FL - RIFE Putters captured a T-3rd Place Finish at the first Major of the 2012 season, The Masters, this past weekend.
There was plenty of drama on Sunday afternoon and several leaderboard changes, and as always, the greens at Augusta put the best players in the world to the ultimate test.
This time, it was a RIFE Island Series Barbados Belly putter that caught all the attention and earned the 3rd Place Finisher a paycheck for $384,000.00.
"To say the greens at Augusta were challenging again this year would be a bit of an understatement," said Robby Hipp, Director of Development for RIFE Putters.
"Speed and distance control can be the difference between making a birdie or a double bogey. Based on the number of Top Ten Finishes we've had at The Masters over the years, it appears that our RollGroove Technology has them pretty well figured out."
RIFE's new line of putters for 2012 include its award winning Island Series models like the Abaco, Aruba, Barbados, Cayman Brac and Trinidad, all of which are recent recipients of a 2012 Golf Digest Hot List Award.
All of these Island Series putters are available in either a Standard Silver Finish or in RIFE's brand new Tropical Finish.
This Tropical Finish is created by using a vacuum "Ti" plating process" on the head of the putter.
A broad spectrum of colors emanate from this deep rich gunmetal like finish creating a "rainbow effect" depending upon how the light hits it.
The new finish has other benefits aside from its eye-catching appearance. The finish prevents oxidization, increases hardness and makes the putter very wear-resistant.
About RIFE Putters
RIFE Putters, LLC is the true innovator behind horizontal grooved face putter technology with a patent on specifically sized grooves since 1997.
These precisely spaced grooves allow the putter to gently press into the cover of the ball and grip and lift it into an instant forward roll. RIFE Putters states, "just as grooves in irons help control spin so do grooves in a putter face."
Other companies are now trying to imitate this patented technology but the spacing of the grooves is the true key to the gripping and lifting effect of grooved face putter technology.
Horizontal RollGroove faced putters create the truest "no skid" roll in golf no matter where you hit the ball on the putter face.
