Phil Mickelson put a new putter at this week’s WGG Bridgestone Invitational. Lefty is using a prototype Odyssey putter and said he likes the way it releases and closes. Mickelson had been using an Odyssey White XG blade putter.
“It’s got a low profile heel and a raised toe that gives it kind of a hook roll,” Mickelson told PGATour.com. “I probably should have gone to it yesterday Thursday) because it just rolls off the face like magic, and it has this great track. I was making a lot more 15- to 30-footers because it was holding such a tight roll.
“But I just didn’t want to change from my blade because that’s kind of been my identity, but I feel really good with this thing, and I’ll probably go back and forth. This is something we’ve been working on for a while, and it just is fabulous.”
