Finding the Perfect Putter

Odyssey White Hot XG 2-Ball F7

The latest 2-Ball has weighted “wings” that raise the moment of inertia by 40 percent over the original model’s MOI. They also seem to effortlessly find the ideal pendulum pathway as you make your stroke. The White Hot XG face insert, a holdover from 2007, is designed to harmonize with modern multilayer balls. It produces a pleasantly hollow click at impact and a pillowy soft feel.

Blade-Style Putters

Miura Golf Series 1957 KM-350

This blade may boast the tiniest putter head you’ll ever see. Katsuhiro Miura, who has hand-forged some of the world’s finest irons for Tour pros, applied the same forging process to his inaugural putter line, yielding a soft-but-solid impact. Weighing 350 grams, it has a pleasing heft. Emphasizing feel over forgiveness, this is a great choice for skilled players.

DGD Golf C-4

The C-4 is both elegant and heavy—its 395-gram head might take you aback at first. But when you putt with it, you’ll see (or, rather, hear) the beauty of the design. A Sweet Slot milled through the head fine-tunes feel by acting as a sound chamber. The satisfying metallic ring is reminiscent of the original Ping putters. In our testing, the C-4 produced a very true roll, thanks to twenty-eight computer-generated score lines on the face.
