“The first few putts I hit with this putter, I noticed a real difference,” Mickelson said of the Stroke Lab Ten he has in play.

Stroke Lab technology incorporates a shaft that is 40 grams lighter, allowing the company’s engineers to redistribute weight to the grip and head, delivering improved tempo and consistency.

The latest additions to Odyssey’s wide range of putters, the Stroke Lab Black models, use multiple materials in the construction to greatly increase moment of inertia (MOI), resulting in increased stability.

Built on the same roll improving characteristics of the ‘White Hot Microhinge’ insert, the two new mallets feature a new ‘Microhinge Star Insert’ that offers a firmer feel off the putter face.

The Ten model’s two sole weights, placing some of the redistributed weight saved by the shaft design, are located in two wings at the back of the putter available in a double bend neck and ‘S’ model producing slight toe hang.

One weight is placed in the middle of the rear of the Bird of Prey model, which is offered in a double bend option only.

To enhance players’ ability to correctly aim their putts, the new models, which will be available in Australian golf shops from November 1, incorporate bold “hi-def alignment” that run from the face to the extreme back of each putter head.

“Our new Stroke Lab Black Ten and Stroke Lab Black Bird of Prey Putters are truly remarkable with all of the premium technologies and performance that they offer,” Odyssey General Manager Sean Toulon said. “Stroke Lab has revolutionised the putter category by fundamentally improving the rhythm and consistency in a golfer’s stroke. And we’re combining it with all the forgiveness from these super high MOI head shapes with one goal in mind: to help every golfer make more putts.”
