Spotted: Scottie Scheffler with prototype Logan Olson putter

Published

on

We have seen Scottie Scheffler testing out a few different putters from traditional blades to custom mallets recently.

At the Hero World Challenge, Scheffler has been spotted with another new putter, this time from a manufacturer many golfers may not be familiar with: Olson Putter Co. Started by Logan Olson, the company has been making some amazing custom putters for over seven years.

Olson’s putters have classic head shapes but are highly customized with a lot of cosmetic — and performance-enhancing — machining.

Recently, Olson took a break from posting much on social media or creating putters for customers, and people were concerned he was out of the business. Olson then posted a note explaining that he had the chance to work on something different, and now we see what that was.

Scottie Scheffler’s putter is custom-built and based off an Anser 2 or Newport 2 head shape. This means it is a traditional blade with sharper angles and a boxier look from address. The flange looks to be slightly extended from the face and has a single site line painted black on it. The top line has a very interesting alignment aid; it looks to be many small milling lines that run from the face to the flange to possibly frame the ball better.

Larger bumpers are slanted down towards the center cavity where “Logan Olson” is stamped in a dancing font and the “O”s are all circles with fancy “L”s in them. The neck looks to be one piece with the body of the putter as the milling around the base is very angled and complicated. A standard-length plumbers neck rises up and the corners of it look to be softened just a bit. The face has what looks like a shallow milling to it with the Olson logo on the heel.

The underside of the putter reveals a tri-sole stamped “343/303.” We can assume that the weight of the putter is 343 grams and it is milled from 303 stainless steel. Scottie’s name is also stamped into the sole, and another circle with an ornate L is stamped out on the toe.

    With a little imagination, one can make out the letters O, L, S, and N in the so-called “circles with fancy “L”s in them.” Perhaps it’s an Olson trademark?

    That doesn’t look just like a Cameron…at all.

    Wow, a stainless steel (cheap), milled Anser 2 style putter.

    The minute these Anser knockoff poseurs start to pay KARSTEN for the design rip-off they are profiting from, I’ll pay attention. Patents expire but these just shameless exploitation of his inspired designs.

Jake Knapp discusses why he opts for a mini driver instead of a 3-wood

Published

The following is an excerpt from a piece we filed for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Head on over there for the full story, which also includes the Mexico Open winner discussing how he configures his PXG irons set up. 

Knapp may be a Tour rookie, but he’s experienced enough to know what works for him. And it’s not a 3-wood.

“I put in a 3-wood every once in a while, but I was just never able to find one that I loved,” Knapp told GolfWRX.com on Tuesday. “Three woods, in general, I just hit on the bottom of the face. They spin a lot and don’t go anywhere.”

Rather than using a fairway wood, Knapp goes with a TaylorMade BRNR Mini Driver that has 13.5 degrees of loft. The club complements his 9-degree Ping G425 LST driver.

During a fitting session in Oklahoma last year, Knapp told his fitter he was looking for a club that goes 286 yards, and his first three shots with the mini driver went between 285 and 290.

“It’s just an easier club to hit than a 3-wood,” Knapp explained. “It spins more off the ground, but I don’t need it off the ground too often. And from 270+ yards away, you’re not really trying to be too precise. You’re just trying to get it up around the green most of the time. So, for me, it’s really just a tee club and kind of a fairway finder for me.”
