Recently I tested the new Odyssey O-Works Red 2- Ball putter. Callaway sent me the club to test for the purposes of writing a review for the Callaway Community.
Oct 15 and Oct 22
Red 2- Ball
Took it to 2 different courses in separate weekends. Weather was beautiful (finally..after so much rain the previous couple of weeks). First course was not rwal great, as far as fairways, however greens were smooth and fast. Second course greens were partially diseased, under repair..so putting was an adventure to say the least.
Club Characteristics (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
This putter is amazing!!! I wanted so bad to keep it. It aligned beautifully, struck the ball so pure!! Even in the greens that had spots on it, my misses were right on, just hit a bump to knock them off. On the fast, smooth greens, I was draining everything. I LOVE THE COLOR, the dark red!!! I don't know if it's just psychological or what, but I felt like i could line everything up and just stroke it right on line. I had owned an original 2 ball putter in the white color years ago, and never got that confident feel from it.
Putter Performance (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
|EASE OF ALIGNMENT compared to my current putter||10/10|
|QUALITY OF ROLL compared to my current putter||10/10|
|ACCURACY compared to current putter||10/10|
|SPEED CONTROL compared to current putter||10/10|
Performance was amazing. Pure roll, easy to line up, ball comes off face so sweetly. Best putter I've ever used!!
Comments on Microhinge Technology:
Roll was absolutely perfect
Easy allignment, pure off the face, easy to control speed/distance
I found nothing with this putter that I didn't like
Summary of My Experience with the Putter
Best putter I've ever used. I wanted to keep it. It brought a tear to my eye to box it up and send it back.
It would be interesting to know what type of putter he was regularly using, or what type, i.e. blade. so you would know what the Red 2-Ball was being compared to.
