SIK Golf captures its seventh PGA Tour victory at the Houston Open
(PINELLAS PARK, FL) – SIK Golf, (S)TUDY (I)N (K)INEMATICS, captured its seventh victory on the PGA Tour at the Houston Open held at Golf Club of Houston in Humble, Texas.
Using a SIK Flo putter, the winner dropped a 33-foot birdie putt on the par-3 16th hole to grab a one stroke lead, then sank a clutch six-foot putt on the final hole to capture his first ever PGA Tour victory.
The backstory on the SIK putter he used to win the Houston Open is an interesting one. In April 2019, during Master’s week, he was playing a round at TPC Sawgrass with an old high school friend when he gave his buddy’s putter a try on the practice green. He was struggling with the putter he was using at the time, and immediately started making putts.
According to a story on Roanoke.com, he said, “It immediately felt good. We played nine holes and I was making everything. I was like, ‘Man, I don’t think you’re getting this one back.’ He was like, ‘Take it.’
In Houston, his success on the greens was clearly one of the keys to capturing this victory, for while he averaged a strong 311.8 yards off the tee, he ranked a mediocre 54th in Greens in Regulation, a relatively unheard-of ranking for a tour winner. He ranked 1st in Putts per Green in Regulation and 7th in Strokes Gained/Putting for the tournament.
About SIK Golf’s Descending Loft Technology™
Descending Loft Technology™ is SIK Golf’s patented putter face technology. They have four flat surfaces that are milled into their putter face. Each plane descends in loft by 1° from the top of the face to the bottom of the face. When your shaft is pressed at impact the ball contact will be higher on the face, same is true in reverse. DLT delivers consistent launch angles from putt to putt which lead to more consistent and predictable rolls.
