Odyssey White Hot Versa Putters Review (8 NEW Models for 2023)
Eight putters features as the Versa range from Odyssey returns
Odyssey White Hot Versa putters are back for 2023 with eight new models launched as part of a comprehensive series with alignment the big selling point.
The new Versa range all have a distinctive black and white combo look that we have seen before from Odyssey, and this time the alignment aid colour design has some input from putting guru Peter Kenyon.
The series features two blades – the One CH and Double Wide – and six mallets – the Three T, Seven, Seven S, Twelve, Twelve S and Twelve CS.
The White Hot face insert is key and all eight putters come with Stroke Lab shafts. Are they a good new addition? We’ll discuss each model in this article.
What Odyssey says about the Versa putters:
“Too often in putting, one of the most essential variables is overlooked – alignment. On a ten foot putt, one degree offline is the difference between a make and a miss.
“With the encouragement of world renowned putting instructor Phil Kenyon, our Tour proven and patented Versa alignment is back and better than ever.
“Versa’s high contrast alignment technology highlights the proper face angle from address to impact, allowing you to align the putter throughout your stroke. The black and white contrast lets your eyes key in on the linear designs while highlighting face angle.
The lineup features a blend of blades and mallets with our famous White Hot insert and game-changing Stroke Lab shaft.
“The newest generation of our proven multi-material Stroke Lab shaft features even better performance.
“By shortening the steel section we reduced the weight by seven grams. We also made it stiffer and more stable for even more consistency in your stroke and your performance.”

White Hot Versa One CH Putter Review
The White Hot Versa One CH is the most traditional putter in the range with a classic blade look and feel.
Designed with a crank hosel, it is heel weighted with moderate toe hang and is best suited to golfers with a moderate arc putting stroke.
The One CH has the latest version of Odyssey’s White Hot face insert for consistent ball striking and pure roll on putts of all distances.
The putter features the returning black and white Versa alignment with the contrasting colours designed to help you hole more putts.
White Hot Versa Double Wide Putter Review
Odyssey’s popular Double Wide model is also included in the new Versa range as the second of two blades along with the One CH.
The putter head is double the width of traditional blade options, inspiring the same kind of confidence over the ball that mallets offer.
This Double Wide version has a double bend Stroke Lab shaft and is designed for golfers with a minimal arc and those who tend to have low face rotation on putts.
The black and white contrasting Versa alignment aid is even more prominent in the wider head of this putter.
Like all putters in the range, the latest White Hot insert is also in the face for improved ball striking on the greens.
White Hot Versa Three T Putter Review
Although it looks very much like a large blade, the White Hot Versa Three T putter is actually classified as a half mallet by Odyssey.
It has a large confidence-inspiring putter head with more a classic look that some of the mallets in this range.
It is toe hung and an ideal choice for golfers with a significant arc putting stroke and face rotation.
The black and white alignment really stands out in this model, while the impressive White Hot insert is improved for a solid roll on the ball.
White Hot Versa Seven Putter Review
The Versa Seven putter is the classic fang style mallet with an eye-catching look in the new black and white colour scheme.
This model has a double-bend Stroke Lab hosel shaft and is face balanced, suiting golfers with a slight arc stroke. You should feel minimal face rotation with this in the bag.
The contrasting colours help with alignment and the latest version of Odyssey’s White Hot face insert provides consistent ball striking and pure roll.
White Hot Versa Seven S Putter
The Seven S model is identical to the Seven in terms of looks, but has two noticeable design tweaks.
This version of the fang-style putter is toe hung and suited for golfers with an arc and who encounter face rotation.
The Seven S putter also had a short slant neck on the Stroke Lab shaft for a different look over the ball.
Like the Seven, the contrasting black and white head is designed to help with alignment and the putter also features the White Hot face insert.
White Hot Versa Twelve Putter
One of two versions of the Twelve model, this White Hot putter is described as a “crowned winged” option.
It is essentially the same shape as the winged or fanged Seven models, but has a crown filling the gap to make it a solid putter head.
In this model the black and white Versa alignment switches with the fangs black and the crown white along with a small black line.
The Twelve putter is a face-balanced mallet designed for minimal face rotation and and minimal arc in the putting stroke.
It features a single bend Stroke Lab shaft and has the high-performing White Hot insert in the face.
White Hot Versa Twelve S Putter
The Twelve S is identical to the Twelve with the large crowned mallet head filling either side of the fanged edges in the “crowned winged” putter.
The difference with the S model is in the Stroke Lab shaft with this putter having a short slank hosel.
This putter, like the Twelve, is a face-balanced mallet designed for minimal face rotation and and minimal arc in the putting stroke.
It has the same black and white contrasting look, the small alignment line and the White Hot insert in this confidence-inspiring large mallet head.
White Hot Versa Twelve CS Putter
A third design in the Twelve series is the CS model, which is the centre-shafted option of the trio of crowned winged mallets.
The Stroke Lab shaft is actually a single bend version, but it is located in the middle of the putter head for golfers who prefer this type of set up.
It is identical in terms of design as the Twelve and Twelve S with black wings, a white crown and a small alignment line that run along the edge of the centre shaft.
The latest Odyssey White Hot face insert offers solid ball striking, pure roll on the ball and consistency on the greens.
Verdict: Are the Odyssey White Hot Versa putters any good?
In short, yes. The White Hot range is one of the most popular on the tour with Jon Rahm among those trusting it in their bag.
The Versa range is brought back to market for 2023 and the latest black and white designs not only look good but perform on the greens too.
The variety of blades and mallets have you covered with plenty of options to suit your particular putting style and you will see plenty of benefits from the colour scheme in terms of helping alignment.
