Putting is normally a key component to success on the PGA Tour. Given that, it seems logical to take a look at every putter used to win a tour event over the course of the season. As the 2024 season kicked off with 38 regular-season and FedEx Cup Playoff events, we're taking a look at what's been in the bag for this year's winners so far. After eight events, TaylorMade claimed its second victory of the year with Jake Knapp's win at the Mexico Open. Odyssey has three victories so far in 2024, while Ping, Titleist and L.A.B. each have one. Come back each week to see who else will be added to the list of winners.

Most of us think of the putter face as a study in feel, but the engineers at Odyssey thought, Why can’t we get the face to be active and flexing on putts, too? The key was using artificial intelligence to produce the strangely bumpy back of the face. This insert uses “micro-deflections” to help mis-hits roll nearly as well as center strikes. When it comes to feel, is there anything better than fewer three putts?
