Purchased a tour issue rife hybrid putter and noticed a raised circle on the top line heel. No idea what it is, any ideas?

I'm going to guess just some added weight that a player wanted added on the heel side of the putter for whatever reason.

Could be wrong.

Looks like a similar to See- More putter shaft alignment aide so at address the shaft  would obscure the dot/circle from view thus giving you assurance you have not lofted or de-lofted the face

my guess: it's where they drill for the shaft on the heel-shafted version

It is a mid length putter so I could see it being added weight... However that's what the weight ports in the back are for.  Avgjoe's guess makes sense but I haven't seen any other center shafted rife hybrids with this.

But extra weight at that spot on the heal would affect how it "swings." that's the reason I say that.

All that said, I have no idea. That wouldn't make much sense to me on an adjustable weight center shafted putter either.
