Odyssey Long Insert Putter If you had wing, had wings, had wings…

Here's a putter you don't see every day. It has wings, and is one of those long putters -- you know the ones. You hold the top steady at your chest and swing the putter with your lower hand. It's not a bad way to putt, especially if you are struggling with the yips. PGA Tour player Bernard Langer used a long putter recently.

The putter head is from Odyssey's White Hot XG line. The White Hot XG features a multilayer insert with soft elastomer for feel and a truer roll, and a thin outer striking surface infused with urethane.

Many of you may recognize the names of these materials, as they are found in most of our high-end "feel" balls (like the Titleist Pro V1.) Just like with the golf ball, the elastomer and urethane gives the White Hot XG putter face a very soft feel.

This putter head is a large mallet style with weighted alignment wings. The wings raise the MOI and help keep the putter on line.

I would recommend this putter for those golfers who are struggling with those testy 4 to 5 footers. (Who isn't?) In addition, with some practice you could probably dial in those long 20 to 30 footers.

Where I struggle with these types of putters is those testy breaking 8 to 10 footers. With the big clubhead, I have trouble controlling the speed. Plus, having my hands separate on the putter shaft robs me of the feel.

If you want to look at some traditional length putters with a smaller mallet head, check out the Odyssey White Hot XG Rossie Putter and the Rife Island Series Barbados Heel Shafted Putter. These are a couple of my favorites.

Also, to find this same putter style in a short putter, take a gander at the Odyssey White Hot XG #7 Putter.
