Putters Like No Other MORE GOLF Launches ‘The Detroit Collection’

FARMINGTON, MI – For decades, Bruce Sizemore has been designing putters for the best golfers in the world. The Metro Detroit native is now launching MORE GOLF, an ultra-premium golf equipment start-up that’s bringing design and manufacturing of the world’s finest golf equipment to Michigan.

INSPIRED BY DETROIT
MORE GOLF’S initial offering is The Detroit Collection, a limited-edition release of 99 ultra-premium putters that were created from start to finish in the city of Detroit.

MOKUME GANE
Each one-of-a-kind The Detroit Collection Putter is created with Mokume Gane, an ancient Japanese art form that dates back to the 16th Century. Originally, this meticulous metal-making method was used to construct ornate hilts on Samurai swords. The more ornamentation featured on a Samurai sword, the more gifted the Samarai owner. Mokume Gane inserts for The Detroit collection putters are crafted from 14 layers of the purest copper and silver to create a look and feel like no other. Each layer starts as a sheet of precious metal that is meticulously prepared, stacked, and fusion bonded at its virtual melting point. Through heating and pressure, the molecular structure of the copper and silver is bonded to form a solid billet.

To create the unique ornamentation of each putter insert, the Mokume Gane billet is hand-carved to establish a three dimensional surface pattern before being forged and then machined flat. The resulting “starburst effect” present in each insert is the result of the different layers of materials expressing their distinct character on the surface.

CUSTOMIZATION
The Detroit Collection putter heads and necks are 100 percent CNC Milled from a solid billet of 303 stainless material to the most stringent tolerances. The head and/or necks of the putters can be customized in one of two finishes: Satin Pearl or Patina.

Each Mokume insert is available in one of two finishes: Raw Mokume or Belgian Black Patina. Length, loft, and lie angle will be customized to order. Custom laser etching is also available.

ELEVATED DETAILS
The Detroit Collection putters feature a prototype putter shaft from OBAN that was developed specifically for MORE GOLF. Each putter shaft is created from a seamless Japanese braided steel tube that’s extruded to its final shape to offer the highest level of quality, feel, and consistency.

MORE GOLF also collaborated with U.S.-based Best Grips to create signature putter grips and headcovers for The Detroit Collection. Handmade from the finest cowhide, they offer golfers a distinctive look and a premium feel.
