With more than 30 professional wins in 2012, the Odyssey White Hot line of putters has been one of the most successful in the company's history. Brandt Snedeker, Luke Donald and Ernie Els all holed winning putts with White Hot putters in 2012. Now, for the 2013 season, the White Hot is turning pro.
The original Odyssey White Hot putter was an instant hit with amateurs and pros. Despite several new inserts over the years, 60% of pros using Odyssey putters have stayed with the original White Hot insert.
Therefore, both new Odyssey putters for 2013 - White Hot Pro and Versa - will use an insert based on the original White Hot.
Austie Rollinson, Principal Designer, Odyssey Golf, said “At Odyssey, we are always striving to give the elite and amateur golfer more ways to sink putts more often, so we took our most popular insert on Tour and engineered it for better overall performance and consistency. The result is the White Hot Pro line of Odyssey putters.”
With the improved insert and a new laser milling process the White Hot Pro range of putters has been designed to feel and sound more consistent than the original.
The White Hot Pro also features a new Gun Metal PVD finish, designed to create an industrial look that eliminates glare and provides a finish that is preferred by many golfers.
The White Hot Pro will be available in 14 different head shapes, including two models that are new for the Pro range.
The V-Line (above left) is a high MOI mallet shape, and the D.A.R.T. Mini (above right) is a more compact version of Odyssey's D.A.R.T. model that was first launched in 2011.
The White Hot Pro putters will be available from March 1st, and carry an affordable RRP from £109.
