Odyssey Versa Putter

Odyssey’s Versa putters take alignment in a new direction. Rather than have golfers focusing on the target line using parallel alignment aids, Versa putters were developed to make golfers turn their attention to  a black-and-white finish that is perpendicular to the line of a putt and matches the alignment of a putter’s face.

“The development of this putter line was somewhat serendipitous,” said Austie Rollinson, principal designer for Odyssey. “We were working on another putter concept that utilized multiple materials. We had arranged the materials in such a way that they were layered from face to back and alternated between black and white. Although the initial concept proved to be too expensive to produce, we quickly realized that we had an new an innovative new alignment feature for a blade.”

Check out the chart that illustrates the important of proper alignment. According to Odyssey studies, a 1-degree error in putter face aim will give a golfer no chance of making a 12-foot putt.

  1. Actually the #9 doesn’t look too bad. It is very interesting to see how a company can resurrect or re-imagine a head shape in a number of new ways just because a freakishly good pro like Luke Donald putts outstanding with it (Odyssey #7).
