Directed Force Putters

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! So I thought that I would start a thread here talking about this awesome new putter company my buddy started! The company is called Directed Force putters and they make the coolest putters! I haven't gotten my hands on one but I have some pictures and I figured I would show you guys. Enjoy!

I think since you started this thread you should tell us a little about this putters?  I mean do they conform to the specs accepted by the USGA?

What makes these putters so great?

There are so many great putter companies why did your friend decide to get into this business?

Why should any of us even think about getting one of these?

You know, just the normal questions any one would wonder about :)

ya, maybe too many questions, but hey I really want to know if you have the time to answer me.

Thanks!

The "most innovative putter since 1750"? Please tell me thats the time and not the date.

I think since you started this thread you should tell us a little about this putters? I mean do they conform to the specs accepted by the USGA? Even though I am not the creator I can answer most if not all do your questions. To begin YES they do conform to the USGA rules and are approved by the USGA. What makes these putters so incredible is the ability to keep them square. The putter tries to stay square (I believe through MOI but not sure). I believe he thought he could change the industry and got this idea and got into the business. He is a very prominent figure in the fitting industry. I hope this answers everything! Let me know if you need more info!

I don't really see anything innovative (at least compared to what has been tried before) and I would reiterate my query about "the most innovative putter since 1750" part. Are you serious?

Be that as it may, if you or your "friend" believe strongly enough in this product, I wish you the best of luck.

Even if it works as designed, I can never get past the looks of these new oversized putters.  I'm a long term Anser style user that now happily uses a Scotty Cameron style Anser.

As a PGA Professional and one of the first accounts to be set up with Directed Force Putters I can assure you that nothing like this has ever been seen on the market.  The technology behind this putter and grip is solid and proven.  You will see this putter take off and become a regular winner on the PGA Tour in the next 6 months.  The putter completely conforms with the requirements of the USGA and PGA Tour.  I have always been a traditional style putter fan, but this putter is truly BETTER.  I have always been a good putter, but this putter makes me even better.  No gimmick, solid feel and amazing technology.

Lots of hype but very light on details.  If you're going to make claims about the product provide us some valid reasons why.  Who will we see use it on the PGA Tour and when?  Why is it "truly BETTER" than other putters?  Why did it make you a better putter?  What's the technology behind it.

The owner watches this thread so I don't want to get into too many details since the product is still in production.  You can see the putter on the Big Break this year and keep an eye on the Reno Tahoe Open this week...Good chance you will see it there.  As for details on the technology you will have to wait until I get the "OK" from the owner.  What I can tell you is that each putter is custom built to your specs and because of the design it can go to extreme lie angles compared to traditional putters.  Watch the Big Break this year though...Will Lowrey already has one and loves it!

Just talked to the owner and he doesn't want the technology revealed for a little while longer , only know that it's the only putter on the planet that stays square by itself without your hands touching it and the grip can can be installed on other putters to make them way better. If my status as a PGA Professional means anything, trust me this putter is the real deal!!

Welcome to the site and I appreciate the additional information.  if you are a PGA professional you should send your credentials to the administrator of the site so he can validate you as one.  I'd also suggest the owner become a sponsor of the site so that you can share even more information with us without violating the sites spam policy.

Maybe it's a great putter. I guess we'll find out sooner or later.

Color me just a bit skeptical on the "stays square all by itself" thing though. I can't even imagine what that means.

    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
    • I'm the new guy here on this forum, so I imagine this debate has been going on for awhile so I'll just respectfully respond to this by giving my opinion on the matter: Bull-feathers! There are four things that determine the distance you hit a golf ball; the loft angle on the clubhead, the length of the club, the speed of your swing, and how close to the center sweet spot you connect with the ball. Everything else, IMO, is marketing BS. But as I said at the very beginning of this thread, my swing is not the same as it was 16 years ago when I got my X-14's so I'll be buying something. What that something is at this point I'm still not 100% certain.
