Odyssey Golf has unveiled it’s new White Hot OG putters, which feature the original formulation of the beloved White Hot insert for 2021.
The new lineup features enhanced versions of the original White Hot models, offering the feel, sound and performance of the company’s most popular two-part urethane insert.
Featuring a rich silver PVD finish with fine milling on the surfaces, the new White OG putters are designed for golfers who like the look of a premium milled putter.
The new White Hot OG putters from Odyssey are available in a premium stepless steel shaft or the brand’s multi-material Stroke Lab shaft in a new candy apple red.
“Creating the new White Hot OG line has been so exciting for our team,” said Sean Toulon, Callaway Golf SVP and Odyssey GM. “Based on its incredible feel and performance, Touring professionals around the world still make this insert their overwhelming first choice. And we wanted to make sure the rest of the product would be perceived the same way. We spent hours upon hours poring over every detail of each component to make sure discerning golfers around the world would recognize this family of putters as world class immediately. We couldn’t be more excited to introduce White Hot OG.”
Both of these shaft options are fitted with a gray DFX Rubber Grip for a classic look and feel.
White Hot OG Putters will be offered in the following head shapes: #1, #1WS, #5, Rossie, Rossie S, Seven, Seven S and 2-Ball. The retail price on all models is $219.99 for a stock steel shaft, and $269.99 in the Stroke Lab shaft. These putters are all available for pre-order today, and they will be available at retail starting on January 28.

Fujikura announces second-generation MC Putter shaft
As the shaft company with one of the hottest driver shaft lines in golf—thanks to the Ventus series—Fujikura knows its way around creating great products designed to enhance feel and performance.
Fuji is now bringing this drive for innovation to the putting green with the introduction of the second generation MC Putter shaft designed to offer increased stability with three different models to fit a golfer’s stroke and feel preference.
A long time coming
To say that putter shafts went a long time without innovation would be an understatement. Beyond some slight tweaks to flex and weight, the traditional steel putter shaft has remained unchanged for well over 100 years. Until recently, most golfers never even considered that a putter shaft could be a source for improvement in feel and consistency yet week after week we see more players at the highest level looking for any advantage on the greens and this is where the MC Putter shaft comes in.
Unlike what is currently available in the market, the MC is a multi-material full-length graphite putter shaft that also features a metal core at the tip (that’s where “MC” comes from) along with a copper wrap towards the butt section to enhance mass properties without sacrificing feel.
The metal core plays a dual role, by adding extra mass towards the tip which saves engineers from needlessly adding extra layers of carbon fiber to adjust the balance point. The reason this is such a key factor in feel is that at a certain point the extra layers and wall thickness actually starts to dilute the level of feedback you are getting from impact. It’s the difference between catching a baseball with a proper glove versus trying to catch it with throw pillows—sure you can do it, but your level of awareness for everything that occurs during impact is completely gone.
This technology combines carbon fiber and rubber for the entire length of the shaft to further reduce unwanted vibration at impact. By dampening the unwanted vibrations, the feel of the shaft is amplified to provide better responsiveness which leads to things like improved distance control.
What about stability?
This is where the conversation gets really interesting because all three models offer extremely low torque while using less graphite in the tip than the all graphite competition. This low torque combined with the enhanced feel properties creates less twisting at impact without the “deadening” feel and helps reduce dispersion off the face.
As an example the X-Firm MC Putter shaft CPM’s at over 600 which although seems like an arbitrary number is over 100 cycles stiffer than the next closest competition, has lower torque, yet still offers all the technology to maintain feel that golfers expect from their putter.
Price, specs, and availability
The all-new Fujikura MC Putter shafts are available now through authorized Fujikura dealers and are priced at $250. They are currently available in .355″ taper which can be tipped a small amount to fit .370″, and only work in plumbers neck or “shaft in” center shafted putters.
- Smooth – The shaft profile creates more feel in the hands
- Firm – Smoother than steel, enhanced feel from rubber composite.
- X-Firm – This ultra-stable shaft offers instant feedback and the firmest feel
