Also known as “The Fang,” the Odyssey White Hot XG #7 putter is a progressive mallet with two weighted fang-like protrusions along the rear of the heel and toe. It features the White Hot XG insert, which Odyssey calls its “softest and most responsive” insert.
Luke Donald’s putter appears to be a customized with a darker finish than the standard retail version.
Meanwhile, Martin Kaymer’s putter is a PING Anser 2, which carries the same $99 price tag as Donald’s White Hot XG #7. Between them, Kaymer and Donald won more than $2 million this week. That’s a pretty nice return on their putter investments.
Donald isn’t the only golfer to rock the “white hot” magic lately. Graeme McDowell used an older White Hot #7 to win last year’s U.S. Open, while Stuart Appelby won the most recent Greenbrier Classic with a White Hot 330.
