The ban on anchored putting beginning in 2016 doesn’t specifically prohibit any kind of putter, but it could mean that some players will need to explore con- forming methods of putting. So-called counterbalanced putters, where a heavi- er head is combined with a heavier grip, might make the transition easier.
Odyssey’s line of Tank Cruiser putters offers an even easier transition to counterbalanced
putters, thanks to adjustable weights for both the head and grip so a player can determine a
preferred overall weight and balance point. The line will add four models featuring the
Fusion Rx insert, which combines a thin metal mesh grid over the top of the company’s
traditional soft polymer material. The four models (#1W, #7, V-Line and 2-Ball Fang) feature
a kit that offers multiple weight options for the sole and grip. Due in stores at the end of the
month, the Odyssey Works Tank Cruiser models will sell for $250. —Mike Stachura
