2009 Putters Buyer's Guide
|Nike IC Series
Key Feature: Its color scheme and alignment aid. The grip, shaft and clubhead are painted green to “suppress visual noise,” while the alignment aid and putter edge are white, making it easier to find and retain your line.
Who It’s For: Golfers who struggle to retain an image of their target line while standing over the ball.
Specs: Seven models available; the head and face are made from aluminum.

|Nike OZ Series
Key Feature: Its larger grip helps golfers make stable strokes, and its high-performance polymer inserts ensure a true roll and feel.
What We Like: The soft polymer face keeps the ball in contact longer to promote a true roll and great feel. The lightweight polymer allows for enhanced perimeter weighting, which increases stability through impact.
Who It’s For: With high MOI mallets and forgiving blades in its lineup, there’s an OZ for everyone.
Specs: Six models available.
|Odyssey Black Series ’09
Key Feature: Featuring a carbon-steel body and a tungsten flange in the rear section, this series of putters includes a new i 2-Ball version. Precision-milled, each model also has an elastomer insert for better feel and a higher MOI.
What We Like: The new 2-Ball version is very cool, so is the new i #6 model. The low-glare nickel plating is gorgeous.
Who It’s For: Those looking for a premium putter from a company dedicated to new putter innovations.
Specs: The Series includes multiple models, ranging from Blade to 2-Ball.
