Odyssey White Hot OG Putter Review

Odyssey Golf, Callaway’s industry leader in creating and designing putters, finally announced the return of the fan-favorite and cult classic Odyssey White Hot OG Putters. The original range of White Hot putters and inserts was a favorite among amateurs and professionals alike, and for its 20th anniversary, the Odyssey White Hot OG Putter is back! But are they still a class above the rest? Let’s find out in our Odyssey White Hot OG Putter Review!

What’s New?

While the original White Hot was released way back in 2000, almost half of Odyssey’s tour players still made use of the old White Hot Putter or fitted the White Hot insert into a newer putter. There must’ve been a reason for this long-lasting love for the original White Hot even after many other Odyssey releases – So why not release an updated version and give the people what they want!

The updated, 20th anniversary Odyssey White Hot OG Putter combines the classic urethane insert with a variety of different head shapes – six to be exact! These include a #1, #1WS, a 2Ball, #5, #7, and Rossie putters, so there is one available for each and every kind of golfer.

Odyssey White Hot OG Putter Review- Performance

For newer golfers or those who’ve never played with the OG White Hot, these putters were and still are one of the most successful putters of all time – both in terms of sales and championships.

Those who have played with the original White Hot will love the return of the classic insert. The defining characteristic of this insert is the variable feel. While the insert is firm to touch, the feel changes depending on the impact. On short putts, the feel is soft, and the sound matches the amount of power you put into your putts. On longer putts, the feel does get firmer, and the sound the putters produce becomes more pronounced and crisper. The fact that the sound and feel match the amount of power you put into your putts allows for consistent and accurate distance control and ball roll.

While the insert returns in its classic and loved fashion, everything else about these clubs is new and updated to make a putter that is able to provide ultimate performance. The various head shapes feature a milled putter head coated in a silver PVD finish. The featured milling marks are around the insert on the face, and they also feature heel-toe weights. The featured grip on these putters is the Grey Odyssey DFX grip, with more options available, including an oversized Odyssey grip.

The Silver PVD finish combined with the milled face gives these putters a premium and high-quality look. The head also features the nostalgic, original White Hot branding with an added ‘OG’ in red – the putters are amazing to look at with the nostalgic yet modern look.

These putters are also available in two shaft styles – Stepless Steel or a new Stroke Lab Shaft. The new and improved Stroke Lab shaft, while being around $40 pricier, is worth the extra cash. The major winning Stroke Lab design has been updated to be stiffer, even more stable, and lightweight than before. The ‘Candy Apple Red’ Stroke Lab shaft has been redesigned by adding more graphite into the construction and is now a whole seven grams lighter than the previous design.

The Stroke Lab shaft allows for increased consistency in your shots and helps improve ball impact. The removable heel-toe weights in the sole provide versatility and flexibility and are the most noticeable upgrades from the original White Hot putters.

All of these features, the White Hot insert, the Stroke Lab shaft, and the head weights, combine to provide optimal and controllable ball roll and distance on your putts.

Our favorite of the upgraded lineup has to be the return of the 2Ball putter. The iconic design has had a makeover with the PVD silver look and a more rounded finish. While it might take a little while to get used to the 2Ball if you’ve never played with it before, once you do get used to it, the 2Ball design will greatly help you improve your game. If you are able to understand how the 2Ball design helps with alignment, you’ll find yourself putting trickier shots and from further distances.

Overall, the Odyssey White Hot OG Putters provide the classic and dependable feel that every golfer loves due to the return of the urethane insert. The putters are easy to frame, and the alignment aids are well-designed. And with the new Stroke Lab shafts, the Odyssey White Hot OG Putters are a club that every golfer will love and want in their golf bag.
