“Thanks to your tips, I've reduced my putting numbers from the high 40s per round to the high 30s in just 5 rounds and haven't had a 3-putt green in two rounds! I've literally cut 10 shots off my putting game in 3 weeks!” Elliot, 25 handicap

Odyssey have also put a nice straight line design on the back of the putter,
which help you line up accurately. There's a decent-length aim line and parallel
lines are formed by the heel and toe weights which frame the ball nicely at
... on an Odyssey White Hot putter
How does it feel?
Odyssey's best features have always been their inserts and the White Hot is one
of the classics. Soft but not dead, firm but not clunky. Odyssey inserts always
seem to be the perfect combination of both.
You'll find that the blade style of the Odyssey White Hot 5 (with the shaft
inserted right into the heel) gives you a great sense of weight in the toe end.
Perfect if you're trying to produce an open-square-closed putting style. Hell on
earth if you're a square straight back and through, square-to-square putter.
How does the Odyssey White Hot 5 roll the ball?
Nothing short of fantastic. This putter is a real class act. The only thing you
may find is that the blade design and considerable amount of weight gave my
putts more speed than I imagined. I can see this being an advantage if you're
playing on slow greens where it's hard to get the ball up to the hole. On very
fast greens (say, 11 on the stimp meter or more) I'm not sure it would be too
easy to control the speed. Still, Phil Mickelson has managed it for years with a
very similar desing of putter, so I'm sure it must be possible!
A beautifully weighted "precision instrument" with silky soft feel and a great
sense of weighting in the toe. Perfect if you're trying to produce an
open-square-closed putting style.
