Puku Ltd was founded in 2003 by Simon Moore who is currently Chief Technical Officer (CTO). It is a New Zealand company based in Cambridge.
The Puku technology goes back 10 years to when Simon’s passion for golf led him to travel the world looking for ways to improve golf putter design. In the process Simon acquired a deep understanding of golf putters and related principles of metals, physics and golf player behaviour. The result was not only a radically new Puku™ golf putter – the world’s first USGA/R&A conforming adjustable length putter – but also a portfolio of patents granted or in process relating to golf, clamping, and self locking fasteners.
