Odyssey launches new and improved Toulon Garage website

Published

on

Toulon Garage — a website that previously allowed golfers to fully personalize three of Toulon Design’s putter models — is back and the personalization options are more vast than ever. Callaway, an umbrella company that acquired putter-boutique Toulon Design in 2016, has revamped the website and design system to give golfers greater control over the looks of their putter.

During the 12-step process that mimics Tour-level personalization, golfers can dial in head shape, hosel type, finish, head weight, stamping, paint fill, shaft and grip, among other options.

Putter models available in the system now include Toulon Design’s Long Island, Columbus, Austin, Indianapolis, Madison, San Diego, Memphis, Latrobe, San Francisco and Rochester. Each of the putter heads can also be made into a counterbalance design with two different SuperStroke CounterCore grip options; 25 or 50 grams. Sole plates — each of which are CNC-milled — can be interchanged between a 7-gram aluminum plate, a 20-gram stainless steel plate, and a 40-gram tungsten weight.

All of the Toulon Garage putters are milled from blocks of 303 stainless steel and have diamond-cut designs in the face for a better sound and feel.

Toulon’s Garage putters are currently available for purchase at odysseygolf.com/toulongarage and will start at $499 for the Satin and Tour Mist finish, $549 for the Black Pearl finish, and $599 for the Rose Gold finish. Orders come packaged in a specially-designed box and come with a certificate of authenticity that’s “laser-etched onto a piece of high-grade aluminum,” according to Odyssey.

    You can almost smell the meeting on this one:

    “Scotty Cameron sells re-branded Ping Ansers for 300 a pop, there must be a way we can sell our 129.99 odyssey putters for 250+?”

    “I’ve got it, buy an un-established premium brand name and apply it to our standard putters and add in some finishing options”

    “I think we’ve earned ourselves a drink, fellas”

    The website is complete garbage. How that happens in 2017 I have no idea. It’s incredibly RAM hungry trying to pull through the Auto CAD drawings for every single stage. Mobile viewing is a total bust and my Macbook Pro is struggling. First time that’s ever happened. Total SHANK.

    That website needs a serious makeover. My iPhone 7+ got hot viewing it!!!

    And the company needs to rethink their strategy. Options are ridiculous. Seriously options are so expensive it’s just stupid. Get real. Hopefully Toulon fails and they can just make regular odyssey putters and focus on those. This is a fail IMO.

    Such a terrible site! I’m on a 100mbs fibre connection and using a fully specced out touch bar MacBook Pro and it’s pretty much completely maxed the computer out!

    The logo is horrible, the head designs are standard, and the tech is cosmetic at best. Add to that an exorbitant cost for limited options from a putter maker with zero name recognition (no one cares that he started Zevo Golf). All the hype on this site when he started his own company is laughable now. At least he had the sense to know he wouldn’t get far on his own and that selling out to Callaway was a no-brainer.

    Well, I’d like to go through the process but the website is a disaster. So slow in loading that I was unable, on 3 attempts, to get past selection of head choice. Won’t bother with that again. Huge error in launching when the site cannot function as intended. Done with that. How can a company pride itself in its technology when it can’t get its website to function with any degree of the technical prowess the product is supposed to possess?

    Nothing more than when this was first mentioned, woohoo, another over priced milled putter company… Far cooler option out there.

    So, as of 7/6/17, only two head options (Indy / Madison) available for lefties. . . Very disappointing. Hopefully, this gets corrected.

    Much too little, much too late. Also, the optimization of the site is horrid.

    Whoever designed that site needs to optimize it for mobile viewing.

    It’s a veritable nightmare on my iPhone

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
