New Odyssey O-Works microhinge putters feature new technology in the face for more topspin and better roll.
Available in number of Odyssey’s classic headshapes and alignment models, the new face inserts on the putters have more flex to get the ball rolling truer more quickly.
Phil Mickelson was quick to embrace the new technology after a short period of testing.

The 5-time-major winner ran into Odyssey’s top man Austie Rollinson at Callaway HQ in Carlsbad last year and got a sneak peek of a prototype insert.
Austie and the team built up three #9s with the prototype insert technology for him to test.
Mickelson couldn’t wait and actually drove over himself to pick up his new putters that afternoon.
Along with the new Microhinge face inserts, Odyssey have added high contrast alignment technology to highlight the proper face angle from address to impact.
The red highlight lines give an additional aid to make sure you’re lined up properly.
Odyssey say being just two degrees out on a six foot putt is likely to result in a miss.
A number of the models are available with Tank counterbalancing technology with heavier heads and heavier shafts.
Odyssey say this technology quietens the hands to engage the bigger muscles to deliver more stability at impact and promote a more consistent stroke.
