Concord, ON, November 6, 2008 – Odyssey®, the number one putter in golf, today introduced its 2009 product lineup. The range of new putters builds on Odyssey’s reputation for revolutionizing the game of golf with new ideas, designs and technology to enhance on-green performance.
“We are very excited about the new technologies and the depth of offerings being introduced in our 2009 Odyssey product line,” said Chris Walling, Director of Marketing for Callaway Golf Canada and Odyssey Golf. “Odyssey understands putting – it’s a game within a game. From the White Hot XG® Progressive Putter, which features some of the most advanced head shapes in golf, to the more traditional tour-inspired Black Series, I am certain that all golfers will be able to find the perfect Odyssey putter to take their game to the next level.”
White Hot XG® Progressive Line
Featuring the most advanced head shapes in golf, the White Hot XG® Progressive Putters include high-density wings to position more weight on the outer edges providing Odyssey’s highest Moment of Inertia (MOI) level. A high MOI helps keep the putter incredibly stable during the stroke to increase accuracy, distance control and feel from anywhere on the green. Each putter incorporates the multi-layer White Hot® XG insert, Odyssey’s most popular and most responsive insert, generating the softest feel with fine-tuned feedback.
White Hot XG® Teron – A radical mallet with high-density perimeter wings, triangulated HD alignment lines with a double-bend shaft and full-shaft offset.
White Hot XG® Hawk – Features a modified half-hex mallet head with an alignment stripe, weighted wings with a double-bend shaft and full-shaft offset.
White Hot XG® 2-Ball Line
The White Hot XG® 2-Ball Line combines the best-selling putter alignment system of all time with Odyssey’s softest, most responsive insert, the White Hot XG®.
White Hot XG® 2-Ball F7 – The White Hot XG® 2-Ball F7 is designed to take stability to an all new high. This unique putter combines the legendary tour-proven two-ball alignment system with the addition of high-density wings, raising the putter’s MOI to help stabilize the putter during the stroke for better accuracy and consistency.
White Hot XG® 2-Ball Mid and Long – Both putters boast an extended mallet head: one with a mid-length shaft and extended one-piece grip; the other with a long shaft and split grip.

The multi-layer White Hot XG® insert technology is the softest, most responsive insert Odyssey has ever created.

Each putter also uses a new White Hot Tour insert with a firmer feel for the responsiveness and feedback sought by accomplished players.
