As one of the leaders in the putter category, Odyssey has never been afraid to think outside the box when it comes to putter innovation and the new Odyssey Works 2017 putters are testament to this philosophy.

Replacing the previous O-Works range, integral to the new range is the brand’s revolutionary Microhinge insert technology, in which Odyssey claim to have created a new way to roll the ball to help golfers’ ball stay on line more often from different strike locations on the clubface.

Microhinge technology increases topspin via an Elastomer insert that is co-moulded with a new stainless steel Microhinge surface with the individual hinges flexing on impact, lifting the ball to produce topspin and ultimately better roll.

New and improved high contrast Versa Alignment Technology allows your eyes to focus in on the linear designs to highlight the proper face angle from address to impact for alignment throughout the putting stroke. The red highlight lines provides an additional aid to assist alignment to the target, as even being just two degrees out on a six-foot putt is likely to result in a miss.
