Tour Pro Richard Sterne – KRAMSKI Ambassador For One Year


Pforzheim – 17.01.2018

In February 2018, the partnership of KRAMSKI and Tour Pro Richard Sterne has its first anniversary. Already in January 2015, Wiestaw Kramski and the European Tour player met for the first time in Fancourt, South Africa.

 

“Do you know this player?”. This question by proette Monique Smith Wiestaw Kramski had to answer with no back then. He trained and fitted Smith at the putting green in Fancourt. Close by, European Tour player Sterne trained at the pro section of the driving range. Smiths explanations caught Kramski's attention: the South-Arican Tour pro had already won six tournaments of the European Tour.

 

The putt guru and the golf pro were introduced to each other. Curious, Sterne tried out the KRAMSKI Putter. While observing, Kramski noticed a characteristic feature in the pro's game: he used the claw grip. “He told me he uses this grip for several years now and this way the putting worked best. I assembled a test putter for him – specifically adjusted to the needs of a player with a claw grip. This includes particularly a very steep lie angle.” In the following months, the fine tuning had to be completed. Until the putter was perfectly fitted to Richard Sterne, it took more than ten corrections in the setting.

 

The tailoring was worth it: in the ranking of the Race to Dubai at the end of 2017, Tour pro Sterne was at position 59 and had won a total of roughly 732,000 Euro of price money. In the world ranking, he is currently listed as 138 – even though he ha to start late into the season due to an injury.

 

Since February 2017, the South African is under contract with the KRAMSKI family business. He wears a KRAMSKI cap and has a KRAMSKI bag. And of course, he has a KRAMSKI Putter in the bag. Company founder Wiestaw Kramski is sure: “If he can play the entire season 2018, Richard Sterne will be among the top 100 of the world ranking – and will surely win a couple of tournaments!”

 

Last weekend, Richard Sterne finished with minus 9 at a tied 20th rank at the BMW SA Open Championship. Five more KRAMSKI ambassadors participated in the tournament. Trevor Fished finished best at a tied 15th rank. Ruan de Smidt and Breyten Meyer both made the cut with a tied 54th rank. Tjaart van der Walt and Jonathan Agren unfortunately did not make the cut.
