Odyssey putters have seen some early traction with its O-Works line, and given that, the company is now offering another option for consumers in producing three models (#1 Wide, #7 and #9) with clubheads with a white/black/white color contrast.
Phil Mickelson currently uses a #9 model with a white/black/white clubhead and the company’s “microhinge technology.”
As it sounds, microhinge is the use of small “hinges” on the face of the putter that flex and then rebound at impact, propelling the ball toward the hole with a forward roll that the company says is twice that of its Fusion RX insert.
To achieve this, the company used a stainless steel plate backed by a soft elastomer-inner layer. The plate is then populated with microhinges. The entire production process takes 23 steps. Each of the three models of the white/black/white putters will sell for $230—the same price as the rest of the O-Works line. — By E. Michael Johnson
