Odyssey Introduces EXO Putter Line

CARLSBAD, CA – Odyssey is the #1 Putter in Golf and we continue to push the boundaries of innovation with one goal in mind – to help every golfer make more putts. Our new EXO line is the culmination of taking everything we know about making great putters and putting it all together seamlessly in one incredible lineup.

You’ve never seen a putter like EXO before, because we’ve never made a putter like this before. It starts with maximum forgiveness created by an advanced multi-material construction. We’ve used multiple materials to concentrate weight toward the perimeter to significantly increase MOI for more consistent ball speeds and accuracy.

We’re the leader in inserts, and we’ve combined the legendary feel and sound of White Hot with our proven Microhinge insert technology to get the ball into an immediate forward roll. And the lineup is offered in three of our most popular shapes: the Seven, Rossie and Indianapolis, all available in Toe Hang options too for a model to fit your stoke.

Features & Benefits

Maximum Forgiveness From Multi-Material Construction
EXO delivers an incredibly high MOI design from a premium multi-material construction. With the lightweight 6061 milled aluminum in the center, we can take weight away from the center of the head and redistribute that saved weight into the perimeter of the head, which is made of 17-4 stainless steel. This is how we’re able to concentrate the weight, driving up the MOI significantly for more consistent ball speeds and directional control.

Legendary White Hot Feel and Immediate Roll
White Hot is one of the most successful inserts of all time with its revolutionary feel, incredible sound, and iconic performance. We’ve taken White Hot and combined it with our proven Microhinge technology that creates immediate forward roll for more consistent accuracy and distance control.

Mallets (And Mallets With Toe Hang)
Odyssey continues to lead in the mallet category, and EXO provides both face balanced options (which reduce face rotation in the stroke) and toe hang options (which allow for more face rotation in the stroke) on each model. Whatever stroke path you have, we’ve got mallets with ultra high MOI to help you make more putts.

Seven Dreamers Reaches 100 Demo Day Milestone for ‘World’s Most Expensive Golf-Club Shaft’

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Seven Dreamers Laboratories – innovator of the world’s most advanced and expensive golf-club shafts – recently conducted its 100th demo day since arrival on the North American golf scene 12 months ago.

The milestone event at The Grove – an exclusive private club with a championship Greg Norman-designed golf course outside Nashville, Tenn. – coincides with a recent major championship winner teeing it up with Seven Dreamers shafts at the 2018 Masters Tournament.

In a short period of time, Seven Dreamers has gained a large and loyal following among the most discerning and affluent golfers. The ultra-premium, custom-fit shafts, which start at $1,200 each, have been adopted by members of Cypress Point Golf Club, Riviera Country Club, Oakmont Country Club, Seminole Golf Club, San Francisco Golf and Country Club, Southern Highlands, TPC of Boston and hundreds other golf and country clubs.

Made in Tokyo by craftsmen who custom build each shaft, Seven Dreamers uses aerospace-quality carbon fiber, a proprietary 3D design system and an autoclave to cure every shaft. This pioneering approach helps the carbon fiber retain 100 percent of its quality and eliminates common practices used by other manufacturers, including grinding or polishing to achieve weight and flex specifications, as well as adding 3-5 grams of useless paint weight to the structure. The resulting design provides golfers with incredibly smooth feel and near-perfect transfer of energy for more distance with tighter shot dispersion.

“Much like fine-quality, bespoke suits, our shafts are designed to complement the user by perfectly reacting to his or her unique swing profile,” says Shin Sakane, President and CEO of Seven Dreamers. “No other manufacturer in the world has the resources or manufacturing knowledge to create the superior shafts our labs produce.”

Seven Dreamers produces shafts for woods, irons and putters. For U.S. and Canadian golfers, 28 different bend profiles help players of all handicaps optimize performance. These were identified as the most common and beneficial options, informed by data collected during thousands of club fittings. Golfers interested in Seven Dreamers shafts partake in a thorough fitting session to find an ideal match.

The autoclaving process is traditionally used for manufacturing high-precision carbon products, including those utilized in the building of satellites and aircrafts. The renowned history of Seven Dreamers Laboratories is reflected in its production methods as company engineers continuously innovate in research and development of fiber reinforced composite materials. In 1998, the forbearers of what would eventually become Seven Dreamers were involved in developing Japan’s “Hayabusa” spacecraft, the first and only unmanned craft to land on an asteroid and return to earth with a sample from the surface.

Endorsed by the legendary Masashi “Jumbo” Ozaki, winner of 114 professional golf tournaments, Seven Dreamers shafts debuted in Japan in 2014 and Southeast Asia and Australia soon thereafter where they quickly became highly popular among professional and amateur players.
