"Why I Developed The Sidekick Putter"
by Robert A. Riseley, Inventor

It has been said that “Necessity is the Mother of Invention.” This certainly applies to the development of The Sidekick™ Putter.

In the 15 years between 1973 and 1988 I had the good fortune to win 11 Club Championships at the Knickerbocker Country Club in Tenafly, New Jersey. I did so by building my golf game on a firm foundation of chipping and putting.

Then, in 1988, at the age of 40, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and my life was about to change forever. As my golf game deteriorated and my 2 handicap became a 10, I realized that where my putting was concerned, the more I opened my stance and placed my eyes on the same visual plane, the more easily I could see the line of putt. Coupled with the simplicity of the stroke which is straight-back and straight- through, I realized that I would need a putter that did not exist……yet!
