Odyssey Tour Pros
Offer Design Help
BY JOHN STEINBREDER
According to Austie Rollinson, principle
designer for Odyssey putters, the inspiration
for the company’s new Pro Type Tour Series line
came from Callaway Golf’s touring professionals.
“We decided on six head shapes that our Tour
pros have not only used in competition but also
won with them,” he says. “Four of the models
are traditional blades, and two are mallets,
including a Pro Type version of the 2-ball.
“Ernie Els has the No. 2 in his bag, for ex-
ample, while K.J. Choi and Steve Stricker use
the No. 6 and Phil Mickelson the No. 9. We also
took in their feedback as far as design was con-
cerned, so we could make modifications to exist-
ing products and come up with these offerings.”
Each Pro Type Tour Series model is made of
1025 carbon steel, which is intended to produce
similar performance characteristics to stainless
steel but with a softer feel. The faces of these
flat sticks boast a deeper, sharper milling pat-
tern designed to launch the ball a bit lower and
promote top spin, so putts roll more consistently.
