The putting formula
You’ll have heard people calling putting an art form and a science, but which is it? In this article, we’re breaking down how putting works and how to do it well.
When we watch the world’s best on TV, we only see that one hit-or-miss moment. We don’t see the countless hours on the putting greens, the time spent with coaches or the all-important fitting session. So, would you have holed the putt like Petterson to win the 2019 Solheim Cup? If you’re playing roulette when picking your putter, probably not.
As the stat shows, putting is done within fine margins. But you’re not on trial here and this isn’t a case of changing your stroke to hole those 8-footers. No, it’s up to us to find you a putter that suits your stroke type.
In Odyssey’s White Hot OG range alone, you’ll find a variety of models that all offer you something different. Do you have a strong arc or a straight stroke? Do you prefer the feel of blades or mallets? Odyssey has a Tour-validated model to suit you.
Once we’ve found the right putter for your stroke, you can start thinking about what happens at impact. Odyssey is way ahead of you, with every model – from the classic #1 blade to the legendary 2-Ball design – offering you sublime feel and pure roll. The original White Hot insert does this better than any other, and now it’s back.
We understand that it’s hard to believe a putter works with your stroke to give you more control while also feeling fantastic at impact, but it does. You can feel the performance and see the results.
