Everyone knows that Detroit manufacturing is world-class, but there’s so much more to this city. Detroit is an incubator of transformative artistry, technology, and design. Maybe more than anything, it’s a place with a bold vision for the future. And it’s our home.
With our first commercial release, we’re honoring Detroit with 99 one-of-a-kind putters created by Bruce Sizemore that were crafted from start to finish inside Detroit city limits. They offer golfers the ultimate combination of precision manufacturing, artistry, design, and of course, boldness.
Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese art form that dates back to the 16th Century. Originally, this meticulous metal-making method was used to create ornate hilts on Samurai swords. The more ornamentation featured on a Samurai sword, the more gifted Samurai 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 pure material that is meticulously prepared, stacked, and fusion bonded at its virtual melting point. Through heating and pressure, the molecular structure of the two fine metals is bonded to form a solid billet of material.
To create the unique ornamentation of each putter insert, the Mokume Gane billet is hand-carved to establish a three-dimensional surface pattern and then forged flat. The resulting “starburst effect” present in each insert is the result of the different layers of materials expressing their unique character on the surface.
The Detroit Collection putter heads and necks are 100% 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.
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.
For decades, Bruce Sizemore has been customizing putters for the best golfers in the world. Every purchase of a Detroit Collection putter includes a Design Session with him to make your Detroit Collection putter truly one of a kind.
