Source: Ontic Golf / Dated: Jan. 08, 2014

Ontic Golf is set to reveal a sneak peek into what's in store this year for this state-of-the-art putter company, including a sample of their all new line of Tour putters, at the 2014 Orlando PGA Merchandise Show.

GRAND HAVEN, Mich.  Grand Haven, Michigan, 5 January 2014:  The excitement within Ontic Golf will again be exhibited at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, January 22-24, 2014. Attendees will have their first preview into a series of new unveilings; the highlight will be the new Signature Series II Tour Blade putter hot off the CNC Machine Centers. Ontic Golf experienced a year of expansion in 2013 with several positive developments to the company, its putter lines, its putter training system, and X-Fit custom fitting systems.

Also in 2014, Ontic plans to rebuild the Ontic Golf Ambassador Program with a select group of Golf Teaching Professionals. The Ambassador Program will be under the direction of our PGA team with the emphasis on building independent Ambassadors promoting the Ontic Putting Instructional System, Ontic Putters, and the Ontic X-Fit custom fitting System. The Ambassador Program will be a win/win for those we select to participate. "The Ontic Team has grown", says Founding CEO Bernie Pinder, "We now have a new addition to the Ontic family; Andy Harris VP, Former PGA Tour Player. He will join David Pinder, Sr. VP, QC; Sr. VP, Kevin Arnold, PGA; and Sr. VP Greg Ortman PhD, PGA."

Since the Incorporation of Ontic Golf in 2003, several designs have been gracing the greens in the hands of amateurs and professionals golfers alike; The M-Pulse Merge Putter was used in the PGA Championship by a former US Open Champion.

"Making putters started as a hobby in 1987 with the groundbreaking patented DST Sole", state Pinder. The DST Sole would become the "Perfect Sole Platform" for the all new putter designs and putter fitting technologies as quickly as Pinder could dream them into reality. Our putter designs lead into a few more patents, including the adjustable M-Pulse Series of putters. Pinder also invented "Putter's Grail Training System", and the revolutionary one-of-a-kind X-Fit Putting System, a custom fitting system designed to improve accuracy and consistent puttering regardless of experience. "A player can be fit for exact grip size, length, lie angle, and weight", says Pinder, "and then rolls a few putts with the X-Fit to get the exact feel for what his or her customer putter will feel like. The whole fitting process now takes only 5 minutes."  Pinder advises that there are a few Teaching Pros and Club Fitters presently using the X-Fit System.

Currently, the Ontic Golf putters are available for both left-hand and right hand golfers and are custom fit for length, loft and alignment. Ontic Golf is accepting international orders. Ontic have expanded into several countries including Canada, Australia, Ireland, Europe, UK, Korea, France, Spain, and Thailand. Interested persons can opt-in to be kept informed of new releases throughout the year.

M-Pulse Putter Slated as Ontic's Golf's Headliner at PGA Show
Golf News for Monday, January 22, 2007 {First published on WorldGolf Wire}

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. - Ontic Golf has its Pulse on the golf industry, and the industry is ready to feel the beat.

That beat will go on when the company's product line, led by the revolutionary M-Pulse Putter, takes center stage at the 2007 PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. from Jan. 25- 27 in Booth No. 1295.

The newly-introduced M-Pulse Putter, which took nearly a year-and-a-half to research, develop and test before coming to market, will be the star of the Show for Ontic Golf. It joins the company's three other offerings. The Signature Tour Blade and the Classic Series heel-shafted and center-shafted models to a fantastic foursome that provides golfers with all the feel and distance control on the greens they could ever want. It is no wonder that Ontic says of its products "For the most consistent putter performance by design". The Signature Tour Blade (MSRP: $165) is CNC-machined from carbon steel and comes with a copper insert, a urethane insert or without an insert. It is available in right hand only. The Classic Series are CNC-machined from solid brass and has an MSRP of $139.

But the M-Pulse is the most technologically advanced putter in the line, and a tribute to the hard work that Bernie Pinder, President and CEO of Ontic Golf Group, LLC, has put into the company since starting it in 2004.

"The M-Pulse Putter features the most advanced and unequaled design technology ever in a putter," says Pinder, a former scratch golfer and participant in the Champions Tour Q-School. "It is a true physical definition of the term state-of-the-art. I have always manufactured products to exacting specifications, which is what I'm doing with Ontic Putters," adds Pinder, who once owned a machine shop that made precision parts for the automotive and other industries. "Perfection is what we strive for with these putters, and we will settle for nothing less. The better golfers feel about our putters, and the results they attain, the better we feel about ourselves and our company."

The M-Pulse Putter's benefits begin with the company's DST, or Dynamic Sole Technology, which is patented and featured in all four putters. "It allows golfers to be more consistent in their putting than any other putter on the market," says Pinder. "The DST design sets the heel and toe flat to the putting surface, taking full advantage of the custom-fit lie angles that are so important to precise set-up, accuracy, and roll performance." The M-Pulse Putter also features a down-the-line mass weighting system that puts more than half of the head weight directly behind the ball for consistent center contact, roll, and feel. The system and the putter's mallet design offer superior visuals for on-line putting. But the most advanced engineered feature of the M-Pulse Putter is the Patented Positive Lie Angle Locking System, which allows for pure custom fitting from 80 degrees upright (USGA limit) to 60 degrees flat. The Positive Lie Angle Locking System locks your custom-fit angle within the full range of angles. The Positive Lie Angle Locking System meets all USGA conformance requirements. Finally, the M-Pulse is face-balanced in all lie angles.

"The M-Pulse Putter is an engineering masterpiece," says Pinder. "Face balancing in all lie angles adds balance to the set-up and putting stroke for roll performance and more putts made - time after time." The M-Pulse Putter comes in a platinum pearl finish and is CNC-machine milled from solid 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum. The mass weight alignment bar is machined from solid 360 brass and 303 stainless steel. All adjusting screws are stainless steel. The M-Pulse Putter has a MSRP of $225 and is available in right-hand and left-hand models. A custom adjusting tool and head cover are included. Like the M-Pulse, all Ontic Golf putters are CNC Machined to 2.5 degrees of face loft to maximize overspin roll and reduce skid. Research data shows that 2-3 degrees of loft provides superior and more consistent roll rates and distance control. Custom fitting is the key component in Ontic Golf's product line.

"Ontic Golf believes that all clubs, especially putters, should be custom fit to the individual golfer," says Pinder. "Using a custom-fit putter is critical to improving putting performance and lowering your score. As such, all Ontic Putters are designed to be custom fitted. When a putter is ordered, Ontic will send a fitting kit and instructions on how to measure your lie angle and length. The data is e-mailed to Ontic and a custom-fit Tour Blade or Classic style putter will be made and shipped within 48-72 hours."  All Ontic Putters are made in the USA and shipped within 48-72 hours of being ordered. They come with a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Ontic Golf Unveils the Fourth in its State-of-the-Art Line of Putters
Golf News for Monday, July 17, 2006 {Originally published on WorldGolf Wire}

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. The hard work is paying off for Bernie Pinder, President and CEO of Ontic Golf Group, LLC. And golfers are enjoying the payoff, too. Pinder, who has dedicated himself to making state-of-the-art putters designed to improve the putting skills and strokes of golfers, is set to introduce the company's fourth model, the M-Pulse Putter. Sixteen months of research, development and testing have gone into the putter's development.

"The M-Pulse Putter will feature the most advanced and unequaled design technology ever in a putter," says Pinder, a former scratch golfer and Senior PGA Q-School participant. The M-Pulse Putter's benefits begin with Ontic Golf's patented DST (Dynamic Sole Technology), which is a staple in the entire line of Ontic Golf putters. DST allows golfers to be more consistent in their putting than any other putter on the market. The DST design sets the heel and toe flat to the putting surface, taking full advantage of the custom-fit lie angles so important to precise set-up, accuracy, and roll performance. The M-Pulse Putter features a down-the-line mass weighting system that puts more than half of the head weight directly behind the ball for consistent center contact, roll, and feel. The down-the-line system and mallet design offers superior visuals for on line putting. The most advanced engineered feature of the M-Pulse Putter is the "Self-Adjusting Lie Angle", for pure custom fitting, from 80 degrees upright (USGA limit) to 60 degrees flat. The "Positive Lie Angle Locking System" locks your custom fit angle within the full range of angles. The "Positive Lie Angle Locking System" was designed to meet the USGA Conformance requirements.

The putter is "Face Balanced in all Lie Angles." An "Engineering Masterpiece" says Pinder. Face balancing in all lie angles adds balance to the set-up and putting stroke for roll performance and more putts made. Ontic Golf Putters are CNC Machined to 2.5 degrees of face loft to maximize overspin roll and reduce skid. Research data showed us that 2-3 degrees of loft provided superior and more consistent roll rates and distance control. The variations in golf ball roll performance characteristics was another interesting study. Custom fitting, in fact, is a key component to Pinder's development and creation of putters. "Ontic Golf believes that all clubs, especially putters, should be custom fit to the individual golfer," says Pinder. "Using a custom-fit putter is critical to improving putting performance and lowering your score. As such, all Ontic Putters are designed to be custom fitted. When a putter is ordered, Ontic will send a fitting kit and instructions on how to measure your lie angle and length. The data is e-mailed to Ontic and a custom-fit Tour Blade or Classic style putter will be made and shipped within 48-72 hours."

The M-Pulse Putter, which comes in a platinum pearl finish, is CNC-machine milled from solid 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum. The mass weight alignment bar is machined from solid 360 brass and 303 stainless steel. All adjusting screws are stainless steel. The first production prototype run of 70 M-Pulse Putters will be offered at $225.00. A custom adjusting tool and head cover are included with free shipping. The putter is available in right and left hand. The M-Pulse Putter joins the trio of other putters in the Ontic Golf line. The Signature Tour Blade comes with a copper insert, a urethane insert or without an insert and are all CNC machined from carbon steel. MSRP is $165 and is available in right hand only. The Classic Series are CNC machined from solid brass and are available in heel-shafted or center-shafted models. MSRP is $139.

The preciseness of Ontic Putters is a tribute to Pinder's background. Pinder once owned a machine shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan that made precision machine parts for the automotive and other industries.

"I have always manufactured products to exacting specifications, which is what I'm doing with Ontic Putters," says Pinder. "Perfection is what we strive for with these putters and we will settle for nothing less. The better golfers feel about our putters, and the results they attain, the better we feel about ourselves and our company."  Ontic Golf has a number of PGA Club Pro's using their putter, with several serving as part of the company's advisory staff. Leigh Taylor, PGA Master Professional & Life Member, Philadelphia, Penn., joined the Ontic Advisory Team based on his experience with the putters.
