White Hot OG
WHAT IT DOES: When something is called “the OG,” that means the original was as good as it gets. This line, which is built on the famously soft-yet-resilient White Hot polymer insert that’s nearly old enough to drink, includes three familiar mallet shapes, three hosel variations for different stroke types and a new model that looks like it’s been around almost as long as that OG of face inserts itself.
WHY WE LIKE IT: The insert delivers a soft feel at impact with a strong rebound for better ball speed. But this is more than a retread. The White Hot adds a bit of modern touch to the OG thanks to the milled finish and the Stroke Lab shaft. This graphite-steel composition redistributes the weight of the putter closer to the hands for consistency in the rhythm and results of your putting action.

"Feels really light, but when you make contact with the ball it just quietly accelerates without getting away from you. Easy to control the stroke."
"Such a sweet, syrupy feel. Beautiful, classic shapes. Love the satin finish. Everything proportional, clean lines."
“A classy looking putter. Soft at impact, like it’s catching the ball, yet the ball leaves the face in a solid manner.”
