Introducing the 2017 SEVEN VS-R Putter!

DSC00474-Edit

If you've been around TSG during the last year or two you may know what SEVEN is.  SEVEN is my personal brand my endeavor to create something better and different.  It's actually pretty easy to make something better but it's also expensive and in order to come out on top you must be willing to pay more to have more.  I start with a sketch in my iPad Pro it's shape is influenced by the work of the many great putter makers,  I close my eyes and imagine the experience I want focusing on looks then feel.

I choose Japanese SM490A as the metal,  this is a material I favored for over a decade after noticing it not as hard as sus303 yet not as mushy as carbon steel.  Face milling plays a big role in how a putter feels how much metal touches the face at impact has a major effect on vibration.  Some milling can make a harder metal feel softer and vice versa.  For carbon which I find too soft I prefer a different type of face mill than on stainless and in this case using SM490A which was already soft but not mushy it allowed me to focus on roll.  Follow the Jump to see more of our creation...

My Benock Okuda Putter

_DSC5212-Edit

This is not a putter by SEVEN,  it is a Benock Putter by Jun Okuda which was personally made for me at his factory in Kyoto Japan.   Because TSG owns the brand SEVEN I decided to deck it out in our style using one of my favorite shapes that Benock offers the ANDIRA.
