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.

Whats in the Bag

Tigers Woods WITB for each Masters win

Published

on

At its core, Tiger Woods’ equipment hasn’t changed by much over the better part of the last two decades. However, Tiger Woods’ equipment is constantly evolving, and there is no better tournament to witness that evolution than to take a peek into the equipment he used to win all five of his Masters Tournaments.

A couple of major notes to consider is Tiger used a steel-shafted driver playing less than 45 inches all the way up until the 2004 season when he finally made the move from his trusted Titleist 975D long after the rest of the PGA Tour had swapped in newer technology. It was still another two years before Tiger made the move to a 460cc driver head in the pursuit of greater ball speed and forgiveness.

Tiger also held onto his 2-iron for a long time, and up until a few years ago would rotate it in and out of the bag with a 5-wood. 2019 was the first major tournament Tiger won using a 5-wood instead of his trusted 2-iron.

The irons GolfWRXers with a 10-18 handicap are playing

Published

on

In our forums, WRXer ‘jjfcpa’ dedicated a thread to irons that fellow members with a handicap in the 10 to 18 range play. ‘Jjfcpa’ himself currently plays Callaway Apex CF19’s, and our members have been discussing the irons they currently play and why in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tangojay: “Ping G-700, Alta CB graphite shafts, hitting them long, high and straight. Hitting them same distance and higher than my seven-year-old G-25’s with steel shafts, am 58.”
  • SouthLand: “Right now it’s a set of Cobra Amp Cells (~2013 GI), but I am in the process of upgrading. Need more spin on the ball, as I’m way below the desired range for spin metrics mainly. Pro thinks I could pick up some distance with improvement there. Driver too.”
  • Twinsgroupie: “Coming from Cobra Tour Forged and just ordered a set of PXG 0211’s. I tend to like a little bit more of a players iron than game improvement. Ball striking of the irons is better than my handicap would lead you to believe – let please not talk about my short game and putting…”
  • pat_kato: “Was playing Nike Vapor Pro Combos then went with the Mizuno MP-20 MMC, and I love them.”
  • BPetry: “Just got a set of Cobra Forged Tec players distance irons and so far I really like them. I came from hitting Callaway Razr X MB’s or a set of MP-54’s that I still hit well when I swing well but needed the extra distance with a bit slower swing speeds as I get older.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about Ping Eye 2 Berylliums

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about Ping’s classic Eye 2 Berylliums after WRXer ‘mywong23’ kicked off a discussion on the irons. ‘Mywong23’, who refuses to replace them with newer technology, reaches out to fellow members who give their thoughts on the vintage clubs.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Old Tom Morris: “I never liked the way they looked. The shape was funny, and the lack of ferrules turned me off. However, they were and still are an excellent iron that are as good as many models out now. Nothing wrong with gaming that set, not hurting you at all.”
  • need2golf: “The rich kids had the Eye 2’s back in the late ’80s, nothing wrong w/ that. I had Wilson 1200 GE’s. Years ago, I bought my very own Eye 2’s, loved them, but sold them. Just bought BeCu Eye 2’s a little while back, can’t play golf yet but dying to game them. I shot some great scores w/ the Eye 2’s several years ago, can’t go wrong.”
  • scruffynick: “No but they’re my dream irons. Used the stainless for best on two decades… They were the greatest irons ever made for me. But I’d love a set of BeCu…. Had a look while on lockdown as there’s a 6-PW in red dot and I’m so tempted but… Mrs not having it considering I’ve got brand new Mizunos in my locker.”
  • 14max: “I’ve always been partial to the steel EYE2s, but the nickel and copper ISIs have made their way into my bag on more than one occasion. The copper EYE2s are pretty special and just seeing them sitting in a bag makes me wax nostalgic…”
  • BobV56: “I played mine until 2018. Sometimes I still miss hitting them.”
