|The Odyssey White Hot XG 9 Putter Golf Club comes equipped with Odyssey's proprietary White Hot insert technology, wherein a combination of a soft, resilient elastomer core and a thin, firm cover of urethane are used to create a golf club with improved feel and better feedback. The multi-layer face construction provides the best possible combination of consistent, soft feel and improved distance control for putts of all lengths. Furthermore, the Odyssey White Hot XG 9 Putter Golf Club features a toe-weighted, heel-shafted flanged blade that has a long hosel and half shaft offset. The White Hot insert used in this Odyssey golf club ensures that the weight is distributed to the perimeter of the putterhead, yielding a higher MOI for increased forgiveness and better roll.|

A heel shafted semi-mallet head putter design, allows full view of the golf ball at address. Alignment line is long enough to do some good, not like the short alignment lines on top of narrower blade putters. Just the right weight to provide 'feel' of the head and helps you utilize the larger back muscles during the stroke. The insert also enhances feels and sound when striking the ball. Works well with both soft and hard cover golf balls. Some will say the heel shafted putter is for golfers with a 'gate' type swing, open going back and closing the gate coming forward, moving off the intended line in both directions. I can swing this putter with either type of motion, either straight back and through or the open-square-close gate style. The non-glare finish also keep reflections to a minimum. Very well balanced, easy to swing and provides excellent feedback. Comes in a variety of lengths to suit all golfers. A popular putter. Just ask Phil!
Let me start by saying that I've always been a 2-ball guy with a pendulum swing. At least I thought I had a pendulum swing until I had my pro video tape my putting stroke - turns out I'm a gate swinger. I tried this putter at my Pro's suggestion. Here's my initial feelings:
1) I can't be mechanical with this putter. It works best when I get the brain quiet and let the subconscious stroke the ball to the hole. (stupid brain)
2) This putter must be released down the line. If I try the straight back and through swing I block it right every time.
3) The XG insert is very, very soft. This is great for those who play 2-piece distance balls as they'll all feel like Pro V1's coming off this face.
4) Said very soft insert makes it harder for me to control distance on long putts. I've left myself 6 ft. short and blown it 6 ft. past. Dunno about you, but that's asking a lot for the second putt......
5) The insert has a bit of a cross hatch texture which seems to get the ball rolling sooner than other Odyssey inserts. It appears to be Odyssey's response to Yes! and TM putters.
6) The poker chip ball marker is a bit tacky; it's about the size of a man hole cover. I can't let myself drop something so distracting down on the green But if you need to sink yours to halve the hole I might mark it inside 12" :-)
This is not a forgiving, high MOI putter. This is a throwback to the 1950's with a 21st century material inserted on the face. If you're a feel putter with a pretty good stroke it might be worth a look. All others need not apply.
I went to the local Golf Shack. Tried several putters and was impressed with the Odyssey brand. This is a mallet type putter but not as large. It is well balanced and has a true pendulum swing feel without the need to force the club. From the first time I used this club, the feel was true as was the roll. Although this sounds like an advertisement, my putting improved the first time I was on the green. Although I have had success with other putters, I feel the White Hot XG #9 improved my game without breaking the bank. I was so impressed, my son is receiving one from me for Christmas.
Thank you for reading and I hope this helps you when considering a new putter.
I purchased this putter because it's the same one Phil Mikelson uses. And, as soon as you hit putts with it, you know why Phil uses it. It has a great feel and you have more confidence looking down at the ball, because of the great profile the putter has. The white hot insert makes soft contact with the ball and helps with the overall "feel" you have with this club. It has definitely reduced strokes from my score and my buddies no longer make fun of my putting.
This club has great balance, is easy to line-up, and the insert "feel" is very positive. I feel like I have to firmly contact the ball forcing a smooth acceleration and positive control down the line. Anybody that enjoys a mallet type head will be very satisfied with this putter. I switched from a center-shafted white hot #5. My line and speed are easier to maintain with the white hot xg #9.
