Odyssey Golf Introduces O-Works Putter Line

altCARLSBAD, California — Odyssey Golf has set the standard for industry-leading innovations for more than 20 years. The latest is Micro-hinge technology, announced and featured in the new O-Works putter line.

Micro-hinge technology consists of two pieces: a 304 stainless steel Hinge Plate backed by a soft thermoplastic elastomer inner layer. The Hinge Plate is populated with “micro-hinges” designed to gently flex and rebound at impact to impart forward spin. That helps start the ball rolling immediately, smoothly and accurately. Odyssey robot tests indicate that Micro-hinge technology promotes almost twice as much forward-spin as Odyssey’s Fusion RX insert.

Highlights of “That’s Good” include a flexible content structure and visually distinctive graphics and camera angles. The campaign debuts with two spots, with the remaining spots being produced as the season and key storylines develop in concert with the season-long race for the FedExCup.

KAPALUA, Hawaii (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Bubba Watson gazed toward the blue Pacific on the first tee at Kapalua and unleashed a big drive with his pink golf ball.

Next up likely will be a lime green ball.

The two-time Masters champion is even thinking of a two-tone ball.

“If we’re going to challenge ourselves, let’s challenge ourselves to make something that’s really off the wall, that’s still playable,” Watson said. “Companies I want to be with are ones that let me have an influence and let me in on the decision-making.”
