Golf Hot List 2015 Putters

Here are the Golf Hot List 2015 putters that have emerged from all the major manufacturers in 2015.  Nike now has the Method Prototype 006 available for consumers, as well as tour players. Also released by Nike are the Converge and the Method Matter.

The Callaway Odyssey Tank Cruiser, Works Versa, Spider Blade and Metal - X Milled, the Ping Cadence TR and the Karsten TR, the Scotty Cameron GoLo 5R and 6 and the Futura X5R.

There is such a variety in styles of putters to choose from, the blade putters with their sleek appearance, the mallet putter that make compensation for the occasional mis-hit on the putter face and then there is the length of the putter. The new Dual Balance available in 36-38 inches is ideal for those of you that like the longer style putter.


The Scotty Cameron Putters for 2015 are emerging to be another success. Some of the new ideas have revealed by Mr.Scotty Cameron, He often uses the PGA Tour Pro's to get their ideas and creates his new models around the suggestions made by the guys that are currently using his putters on tour. Mr Cameron has made some strides in the mallet series of Scotty Cameron putters , here are some of the new look GoLo series additions to the putters for 2015.


The Nike Method Prototype 006 putter is now available, the same putter Rory McIlroy uses.
Why is "prototype" in the name? Because the putter has been in the bags of some of Nike Golf's PGA Tour players for a while, but is just now being released to consumers.

The 006 putter uses Nike's Polymetal Groove technology in the clubface, which Nike Golf promotes for providing a softer feel and faster forward roll.

The 006 shape is not new, at least in name (or should that be number), with the Anser style, heel-toe weighted shape appearing as an option in Nike's Method Midnight line but this is the first time it has been made available in the Method Prototype 006 head.

The Oven is prominent on the 006 Prototype as well with each putter featuring a laser-engraved Nike Oven logo on the sole, highlighting the exclusive nature of this release.


The Odyssey Works Line

Odyssey’s Works putters merge two  successful technologies to create something new.The putters use a new insert , called Fusion RX , that combines Odyssey’s White Hot insert with a stainless steel mesh that’s similar to the company’s Metal-X insert. The idea was to combine the soft, consistent feel of the White Hot insert with the roll benefits of the Metal-X insert pattern

The new technologies are used on each of the 11 putters in the Odyssey Works line: #1, #1 Wide, #7, #9, V-Line, 2-Ball Fang, 2-Ball Fang Tank, Arm Lock #1 Wide, Tank #1 Wide, Tank #7 and Rossie #1 Tank. All models (except the Arm Lock #1 Wide) are also available with a SuperStroke grip for a $20 upcharge

The Odyssey Tank Cruiser

The Tank Cruiser putters are available in four different styles, the #1 Wide and 330M have a bit of toe hang, while the #7 and V-Line are face-balanced  and each is available in lengths of 35 or 38 inches.

The Tank Cruiser putters  have two adjustable weight ports and three sets of putter head weights that weigh 10 grams, 15 grams and 20 grams. They allow the putter head to be made as light as 365 grams or as heavy as 385 grams in 10-gram increments.
