Odyssey Putters

By Mike Camunas

Odyssey putters are among the most popular and widely used putters in the world. Numerous tour pros and amateur golfers use them in every round they play and refuse to use any other brand. With its groundbreaking technology that arrived in the early 1990's and innovative designs, it has established itself as a mainstay in most golfers bags.


Odyssey putters are some of the most versatile putters available. There are many different models; newer ones on the shelves and older ones that can be found by shopping online or in golf shops. Odyssey has various sizes in both mallet and blade putters and each has different shaft designs that help distribute the weight at the head of the putter. The Odyssey line includes the O-Works, O-Works Red, O-Works Black, White Hot Rx, Tank and X-Act Chippers. Odyssey also offers a wide variety of accessories for its putters, including covers, grips, ball makers, divot repairs, towels and umbrellas.


In 1991, Odyssey Sports created its first putter: a mallet putter with Stronomic metal, both in a Rosse I and II model. It quickly earned its first win on thed PGA Tour and Odyessy became a popular line. In 1996, Odyssey introduced its Dual Force stainless steal blade putters with a patented design that inserts urethane material into the metal putter head. The company expanded its lines, designs and popularity, and by 1997 established itself as the No. 1 putter in golf. That same year, Odyssey Sports was acquired by Callaway Golf, and in 2000 the company released its White Hot putter line. 


Every Odyssey putter has the iconic logo: a red swirl with the word Odyssey near or around it. Odyssey incorporates mostly the colors of red, white, black and silver in its designs. The red is usually rather bright, and the white, like in the White Hot line, is very dominant.


When a golfer chooses an Odyssey putter, he will be using a putter that has top-of-the line technology that Callaway has to offer. It employs engineers to come up with newer and better advances for its putter line. Still, putters should be chosen and used depending on a golfer's individual comfort level.
