Odyssey Golf Marxman Mini Putters

By Jim Hagerty

The Marxman Mini's alignment system helps with accuracy at address.
Odyssey Golf started in 1990 and gained popularity when the its putters began emerging in the bags of successful touring pros. In 1996, Nike Faldo defeated Greg Norman for the Master title using a Odyssey Rossie II, which subsequently thrust the Odyssey name into the fore of the golf industry. By the the end of the decade, Odyssey putters were some of the most recognized and trusted putters on the market. The company, now part of Callaway Golf, is still among the leaders in premium putter manufacturing. Its White Hot XG line boasts more than 25 putters, notably the XG Marxman Mini. The club features a unique alignment system, signature Odyssey face insert and an in-line weighting design. The Mini is available in 33-, 34- and 35-inch lengths. While no longer in production, the Marxman Mini putter is still available on the secondary market. 

Alignment System

Beginning at the top-line, two white stripes (Hi-Def Alignment) run toward the back, top edge of the Marxman Mini's crown. The width (about the width of a golf ball) of the alignment marks is positioned in the putter's sweet spot, which Odyssey claims helps accurately line up putts.

Multilayer Face Insert

The Marxman Mini putter contains the notable White Hot line's rubber face insert (elastomer core), designed with the same multilayered technology the company uses to make its popular golf balls. The insert helps the club propel putts, rolling the ball true and without skidding.

In-Line Weighting System

The Marxman's weighting system (Odyssey's "In-Line" system) keeps the mass of the putter low and deep, running toward the back of the clubhead. Rear-weighted at first glace, the club's In-Line weighting actually creates a perimeter-weighting, complimented by a balanced, hollow sole.


With its full-shaft, crank-neck hosel, the White Hot XG Marxman Mini is a nifty little performer. Its noted alignment system allows for easy shot line up, and the face insert softly propels putts accurately and on line. The full offset keeps the face square while the sole moves swiftly through impact.
