Spotted: Red Odyssey O-Works putters

Published

on

The most popular putter model on the PGA Tour currently is the TaylorMade Spider Tour Red, with its “Redback spider” color that Jason Day made popular. Also using similar versions of the putter include 2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, Jonas Blixt and Kevin Tway, among others. Dustin Johnson is using an all-black version, as well.

Golfers being golfers, everyone wants to use, or at least try, a putter that has given others success. And golf companies being golf companies, when something becomes popular they ride the wave.

As such, Odyssey has introduced all-red and all-black versions of its popular O-Works putters, which have a “Microhinge” insert in the face. Read more about the technology here.

Here’s what an Odyssey representative has to say about the red O-Works prototypes:

“We have been asked by many of our players worldwide about red and all black putters to go with our successful Microhinge insert in our o-works line. The players are interested and excited to try them. These are prototypes, they are not finished products, but they will give us insight from a players perspective.”

    The red is dumb, but the black is perfect. I’m surprised they haven’t released the black to the public already. It would be the best selling putter series in a long time for them I bet.

    Does it look to you guys like they are chasing Taylormade with the same exact color schemes as the Spiders?

    Nice, the third (or fourth) iteration of the O-Works line-up. But can we have a blade Odyssey? I think the Meta X was the last model. A black or red blade would look fantastic!

    I thought the Versa was the biggest selling point. I guess Odyssey have to jump on the band wagon. Hiwever I could see how someone may not want any alignment lines or the black/white finish.

    Can’t wait for CPO to try the O-Works insert! I see the play on the TM Spider and all I have to say is the product development, marketing and sales game is too savage.

    Say what you want but this is a move to stop the Spider Tour momentum on the PGA Tour.

    Odyssey has arachnophobia!!!

    I feel bad for whoever already bought an O works putter because these look sweet, especially the red ones.

      Thanks for the sympathy… I even managed to put a knick in mine, so there is no way I can simply swap the ‘normal’ for a red…

      Don’t feel badly for people who don’t get sucked in by copycat fads.

GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day: Bettinardi Ryder Cup Celebrity putters

Published

on

Our GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day was started by member devey07 who posted photos of red-white-and-blue Bettinardi Ryder Cup putters with the Paris skyline on the back cavity. On the hosels, you’d think there would be names of the 12 players on the USA team… but that’s not the case.

Jackson? Rice? Who? At the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris, there’s a celebrity match being played with players such as Samuel L. Jackson, Condoleezza Rice , Michael Phelps and more. See the full list of names here.

And some head covers…

Dustin Johnson decided to putt cross-handed mid-tournament at East Lake

Published

on

Dustin Johnson made a weekend charge at the Tour Championship, and it was almost good enough for him to capture the FedEx Cup title (and with it the $10 million jackpot). Although he fell short, the revival gave him a third-place finish at the season finale, after he fired back to back rounds of 67 at East Lake. The most interesting part about his weekend performance? Well, during the sixth hole on Saturday, Johnson decided to putt for the rest of the event cross-handed.

Speaking to the media after the event, Johnson elaborated a little more on the decision (transcript from ASAP Sports)

So how did Johnson perform with the cross-handed technique? Well, the American gained strokes over the field on the greens on both days over the weekend. For the two days of action, Johnson gained 0.63 strokes over the field with the flatstick, which incidentally was more than he managed over the opening two days in Atlanta. However, a missed birdie chance from inside six feet on the 18th hole on Sunday evening doomed his chances of taking home the FedEx Cup.

Johnson is no stranger to making impulsive changes on the golf course. Recently at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Johnson switched his TaylorMade Spider Tour mid-tournament in favor of the Spider-Mini, despite winning the RBC Canadian Open the week previously with the Spider Tour. While earlier in the year, Johnson decided to implement the AimPoint putting technique. A change which didn’t last long, after instructor Butch Harmon told him to stop as he had no idea what he was doing.

With just four days until the Ryder Cup begins, how comfortable do U.S. fans feel about Johnson deciding to putt cross-handed for the biennial event?
