More about Odyssey Golf

The first Odyssey putters were one-piece mallet putters with Stronomic metal.

After the first PGA tour victory with an Odyssey putter, Odyssey set the standard for putters in the golf industry.

Odyssey quickly expanded its range of models and design. In 1997 the company established itself as the number one putter in golf.

In July 1997, Callaway Golf purchased Odyssey for $130 million, which was nearly four times the company's annual sales of $35 million at the time.
