Steve Boccieri may be the ultimate golf techno-nerd. Since 1994 when he started tinkering with clubs in his South Salem basement, the one-time Indian Point consulting engineer has built a solid international reputation as one of the most revolutionary thinkers in the golf industry. His first big product, the Heavy Putter, has not only played a role in 19 victories on the pro tours but spawned a full line of clubs and golf teaching services built on the application of advanced technology to the goal of hitting a little white ball into a hole.
The club design guru should be familiar to Westchester and Hudson Valley golfers. After he created the Heavy Putter and sold thousands of them with an infomercial, he switched careers to establish his revolutionary golf club company in Ridgefield, CT, in 2005 and moved it to Scottsdale in 2012 to take advantage of a more active and year-round golf environment.
Today Boccieri Golf offers not only counter-balanced putters, but numerous other clubs as well as the Secret Grip, a way to add the feature to clubs made by other manufacturers by simply changing the grips. The company also has expanded its Scottsdale Research and Performance Center to offer high-tech tools that include the fascinating RoboGolfPro, a revolutionary robotic swing trainer system. Here’s a short video explaining how the RoboGolfPro can help you lower your scores:
In addition to RoboGolfPro, Boccieri provides Science and Motion (SAM) Puttlab Analysis, K-Vest Swing Training, club fitting, and even tech-centric golf lessons in their Scottsdale facility. A visit during your next golf vacation is a sure way to satisfy your own inner golf techno-nerd.
