SPOTTED: Odyssey ‘Tri Hot 5K’ putters debut at the 2021 RSM Classic
SEA ISLAND, Ga. – The RSM Classic is the last full-field PGA Tour event of 2021, so it’s really the last time for equipment manufacturers to release new product on Tour before 2022. It’s also the last time for most PGA Tour players to test out new products in competition.
Odyssey is taking full advantage of the final testing session by providing five new “Tri Hot 5K” putter models for players to test and use this week. And given the look and nomenclature of the putters, it seems Odyssey is once again pulling on the nostalgic heartstrings of the company’s longtime users and fans.
At the beginning of 2021, Odyssey released a line of White Hot OG putters that celebrated the 20th anniversary of the company’s game-changing White Hot insert. The launch of “Tri Hot 5K” putters seems to be another blast from the past.
In the early 2000’s, Odyssey released lines of “Tri Hot” putters that combined three different materials; a steel body, Tungsten weighting, and a White Hot face insert. Although the company is staying quiet on design details for the 2021-22 versions, it appears Odyssey is returning to a tri-material design.
Each of the putter models we spotted came equipped with custom “Tri Hot” Odyssey grips, and Odyssey’s multi-material Stroke Lab shafts in matching red-white-and-black colorways.
We’ll have to wait for more from Odyssey on further tech info, but GOLF.com was able to capture photos of the five blade-style Tri Hot 5K prototype putters on Monday at the RSM Classic. For now, enjoy the photos and speculate away!
