As reported here last summer, Odyssey Golf recently nabbed famed putter designer Sean Toulon, giving him the title of general manager and paving the way for a collaborative line of putters.
We now see what that looks like, as Odyssey is set to release five new Toulon-designed putters in 2017 bearing both the Toulon and Odyssey logos. All of these putters are gunning for market share in the high-end milled putter arena. Here’s the lowdown:
- The Toulon Odyssey Austin putter ($399) is a heel-toe weighted blade with a crank-neck hosel that riffs on the classic Anser shape.
- The Toulon Odyssey Long Island putter ($399) is also a heel-toe weighted blade, but with a flow-neck, heel-shafted hosel and squared-off toe.
- The Toulon Odyssey Columbus putter ($399) is another heel-toe weighted blade, but with a longer hosel for less toe hang, and a wide notch-back flange for a beefier profile at setup.
- The Toulon Odyssey Latrobe putter ($399) is a heel-shafted mid-mallet with deep toe hang.
- The outlier of this otherwise buttoned-up group is the Toulon Odyssey Indianapolis putter, which is billed as “our first high MOI mallet.” It features a massive head with an X-factor shape, suitable for golfers who prefer the stable girth and visual confidence of a large mallet.
Look for all of these putters to hit the retail decks in March, launching a new era for Odyssey in the premium space.
