Ian Poulter took an unconventional route when he sought a putter for the British Open: he went on Twitter and asked companies to send him putters to try. The flat sticks flowed in and the Englishman chose one of the more unusual offerings -- a specially-made Odyssey White Damascus iX #1. The putter, which was introduced in Japan earlier in 2013, has an insert made with Damascus steel -- the same steel used to make samurai swords for centuries. The company's Metal-X pattern was then milled into the face and a tungsten flange helped lower the center of gravity. Poulter used the putter to finish third at Muirfield.
