The numbering system?
Where did it come from?
Everyday we are sent an email or asked in a meeting, “Where did the numbering convention come from?”
The Series 39
The Series 39 was named for Rich Parente’s birth year. He is the most active 80 year old we have ever seen. He rides his bike, he walks to clear his mind for the next great golf technology. He stills loves ocean boating, even living on a yacht is still where his heart is. He attends the PGA Show every year and is always excited to meet people and talk golf.
The Series 54
The Series 54 was named for Steve Sacks’ birth year, 1954. Steve has a life history that is amazing. From growing up a friend of the Billy Casper family, he learned to love golf at a young age. He also loved cars, so much he was a race car driver, unitl he crashed in a Porsche at the Nurburgring and spent two months in a coma. He still loves classic cars and when he is not working on putters you find him under the hood of a 50 something.
The Series 66
With respect for the great Karsten Solheim, Sacks Parente named their “Anser” style putter the Series 66. The original patent for the Anser design was filed in 1966. Although the style is similar the Series 66 has year 2020 revelations in technology that give the product advantages never before seen in a putter.
The Series 18
The Series 18 was completed, with patent filed on its design in 2018, and hence its name.
About Sacks Parente
We have a very simple mission: help all golfers make more putts by making the best putting instruments ever built. We knew it was time to shake up the conventional thinking about putter design. After all, many of the putter designs we see today have been around since the 1960’s. Quite frankly, they aren’t helping golfers make more putts.
It’s tough to make putts, but we realized that the more variables you eliminate, the better you will be, so we took a whole new look at putter design, materials, and technology to build Sacks Parente putting instruments. The result, putting instruments that are defying convention from the grip to the sole to make more putts.
Making more putts is impacted by Feel, Alignment, Distance Control, Tempo, and Stability. How a putting instrument addresses these critical putting needs is paramount to having the best putting performance.
SPG putting instruments combine the company’s patented Ultra-Low Balance Point (ULBP) system, which is defined as a balance point 5” or less from the sole of the putter, very high MOI, and weight-forward center of gravity. This unique combination achieves unparalled feel and performance that defies current putting theory.
