Antonio lives in Cesena – Italy, he’s married and has two wonderful girls: Sofia and Olivia. Antonio started playing golf during a business trip to Ireland back in 1998. It was love from the first swing, a love that quickly transformed from curiosity to obsession. It was due to his reduced playing time through a series of injuries that for a few years allowed Antonio to dedicate more time to imagining, designing and creating putter shapes and forms. This time was used to find the best unison of art and performance, something that only a golfer can really understand. The putter, the club that golfers use most, has always fascinated Antonio and having never quite found the putter that gave him that feeling “of just being right” led him to take an increasing interest in their shape, their design and the techniques of putter creation. Antonio’s background is in the automotive industry. The metals, mechanics, design and milling processes have become very common topics in his day to day life, but he had never applied his knowledge to the golf industry until recently. That is until one day when he decided to start to transform some of his ideas into sketches and, exploiting his knowledge of AutoCAD, transforming those sketches into the first prototypes. He began adding substance, perspective and design. Naturally the road is never easy and after various trials and errors the first five models finally became reality. Five models, because he wanted to be able to give the golfer a choice in terms of shape, weight, specs and feel. It has not been easy but as Antonio can confirm today, it has been well worth the effort and is a cause of great personal satisfaction to see his dream come to life. His vision, motivation and passion has seen Bputters constantly grow and develop and find its place in the golf industry.
