Odyssey first introduced the Tri-Hot line in the early 2000s, featuring putters made of a multi-material construction to achieve a more forgiving putterhead and to promote a better end-over-end roll.
The line has since returned with the latest Tri-Hot 5K putters (One, Two, Three, Double Wide and Triple Wide; from $400; odysseygolf.com) also employing a multi-material construction but with modern-day tech for more forgiveness and to make it easier to square the face at impact.
By the way, the 5K in the name refers to the 5000 MOI rating, a measure of forgiveness once reserved for mallet designs. Need more inspiration? Talor Gooch put one in his bag and immediately won the RSM Classic at Sea Island.
1. 303 STAINLESS STEEL
The neck and front section of the putter are made of 303 stainless steel that’s less dense than the tungsten inserts. The tungsten inserts housed in the stainless steel create less twisting on off-center hits (see No. 4).
2. 6061 ALUMINUM
The back section is made of lightweight 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, which displaces weight away from the center and back of the putter, placing added mass on the heel and toe. Hello, stability!

3. INTERCHANGEABLE WEIGHTS
For even greater fine-tuning, the interchangeable weights located behind the embedded tungsten weights come in aluminum, steel and tungsten, helping golfers dial in a precise feel and balance.
4. TUNGSTEN WEIGHTS
Heavy tungsten weights are placed in the heel and toe of the putter, maximizing the heel-toe weighting and raising the MOI for an extremely high resistance to twisting. We’re talking the kind of MOI.
