The title of this topic is extremely misleading because it's not confirmed and nowhere in the article does it confirm this.

I am not sure why so many people are so shocked about the putter.  SC is not the end all to be all for putters.  I have had many in my hand, never liked a one of em.

Odyssey makes as good a putter as anyone.

Odyssey makes as good a putter as anyone.

The thing i find crazy about Odyssey is how many styles of putter they have. When we got fitted for putters just finding one to baseline yourself was hard. I mean i think no matter what kind of putter you like they'll have something like it.

I casually mentioned that the Scotty Squareback style putter was a favorite design of mine , and he came back with the Works 1W tank with the double bend which i ended up taking, it's fairly similar.

I just think you could say any style of putter and they'd have something similar.

Agreed on Odyssey, I've had more success with Odyssey myself as well...not a big Cameron fan.  I think the surprise comes from Rory have so many putting woes and then turning it around end of season after switching to the Scotty.

for me it is because that is what he used for so long and went straight back to, albeit a different model. I just figured it was what he was comfortable with and had the most confidence in. If he found an odyssey that works better and he likes better then that is great, but without tournament rounds under his belt with an odyssey I find it hard to believe he would ditch the cameron that fast. I prefer odyssey over SC fwiw.

To add onto the putter thing... as soon as he switched back to the Scotty, he started to play great again. Seems like he has always putt best with a Scotty. Interesting to see him switch so quickly to something else but he obviously knows more about what works for him than I do!!

Find it hard to believe with all his success with the current putter in hand he would make that change.  I could be wrong. Would find it interesting if he moves golf balls seeing how he helped engineer the current version of ball and said he had years worth of them at his disposal.

Don't understand the big deal with changing putters or any clubs to be honest.  All can be replaced quite easily for these guys.  Spieth and tiger are really the only ones that don't change putters much at all.  For everyone else, everything goes pretty routinely.

Just because Rory (or anyone) switches to odyssey or something else, doesn't mean a Scotty is worse, and same thing when someone goes to Scotty from whatever else.  All of the major oems make solid gear

Epic!

You should take full credit for this.  You gave their management the hard sell on Rory during the roundtable haha

I'm sure Callaway resisted the idea of having Rory pontentially on board 😐...

The key is Rory signing on the doted line.  As mentioned many times before I would love to see Callaway loosen up and learn from OEMS that have pushed the 14 club (or close to deal).  TM doesn't pay more to play their driver - they make it more available for players to only have a few of their clubs under cover.

If the EPIC is this good - make it the most available driver for anyone to play.
