Odyssey Ten Putter – Shape Matters

CARLSBAD, CA – When we introduced the Odyssey Ten shape a few years ago, it immediately became a popular choice on Tour and with golfers who wanted to putt with more confidence. This proven head design puts an emphasis on alignment and high MOI, and we’ve improved on those two key performance features dramatically. The new Odyssey Ten lineup showcases exceptional alignment systems, including 2-Ball and Triple Track in a head construction that’s sleeker and more forgiving. In fact, this is the best 2-Ball that we’ve ever made, with a profile that allows you to frame the ball at address like never before. Along with all of these great head shape options, we’re introducing a new version of our Tour proven, multi-material Stroke Lab shaft. It’s lighter, stiffer and even more stable to promote better tempo and more consistency in your stroke.

To complete the design, our Microhinge Start Insert provides exceptional roll. The shape of your putter matters, and that’s why we’re bringing out these incredible new Tens.

Sink More Putts With Additional Frontline Models From Cleveland Golf

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Golfers who enjoy straight putting will be excited to try Frontline from Cleveland Golf. Weights in the face have been shifted forward resulting in straighter putts, even when the sweet spot is missed. These golfers also enjoy better aim, more consistent distance, and a superior fit.

With an expanded lineup of designs and models to choose from, Frontline delivers a putter to fit any putting stroke and any player preference.

“Cleveland Frontline putters have changed how we think about weighting in putters,” said Dustin Brekke, Director of Engineering at Cleveland Golf. “Having weight as close to the face surface as possible while maximizing MOI provides the straightest putts on miss-hits ever measured. Frontline technology has eliminated the miss-hits. No matter where you hit on the insert, the ball will go straight and the same distance. This line-up, with additional models and builds, provides all options for players to uniquely align at impact. Delivering the face on the target line, while making the sweet spot ridiculously large, means more made putts.”

Frontline putters are made to fit any stroke. From single bend to slant necks and everything in between, there’s a Frontline model to fit every golfer’s game.
