Callaway Golf Putters - Which is the best model to go for?
After their tremendous early success with metal woods in the 1990s, Callaway Golf putters were soon launched. Unfortunately they didn't make much of a success of it. The only putter anyone really remembers from this initial attempt is the Callaway Tuttle (click for review below).
Instead of trying to design any more wacky putters of their own, Callaway bought Odyssey putters in 1997, and the rest is history!

on a Callaway putter...
The Tuttle is certainly original - a putter that definitely looks like a driver. The good news is that it performs better than it looks!
Odyssey 2 Ball
The iconic putter of the 2000s - easy to aim, great feel
One of the most revolutionary designs in putting. Love it or hate the look, the results are good
Odyssey White Hot 5
Larger than average blade with original White Hot insert... beautiful to look at and great feel.
Odyssey White Ice 5
Classic face balanced D shape with silky soft Ice White insert!
Odyssey 2 Ball Blade
Padraig Harrington used this combination of blade and 2 ball design to win majors, but what's it like?
Odyssey Black iX 1
Perhaps Odyssey's best effort yet to eclipse the Scotty Cameron and Ping Ansers.
Odyssey PT 82
Brought out to cash in on Phil Mickelson's move to Callaway and Odyssey in 2009. A limited edition putter, which is lovely to look at and has the best-feeling insert on the market
Odyssey White Ice Progressive Terron Mid
Sharp edged star ship of a putter - you need to like futuristic shapes to use this one!
The Background on Callaway Golf
Callaway Golf was founded in 1982 by Ely Callaway, a successful entrepreneur with a background in textiles and winemaking.
The company remained a small operation until the late 1980s when it designed a revolutionary metal headed driver - the Big Bertha, which started the trend for large headed drivers which continues to this day.
Callaway's strength lay in its metal woods during the 1990s until it purchased Odyssey whose insert putters wvere revolutionising putter design. Click here for more information on Odyssey putter inserts.
The rest, as they say, is history... Callaway Golf putters are now entirely marketed through the Odyssey brand and it is amongst the three most popular putter companies in the world for both tournament professionals and regular players like you and me.
