Callaway re-releasing replica Phil Mickelson blade putters

Posted at 2:11 PM by David Dusek

Odyssey-PT82-Putter In the aftermath of his third win at Augusta, Phil Mickelson's custom Odyssey blade putter became one of the most popular pieces of golf equipment in the world. Minimalist to the core, it was perfection in the eyes of purists everywhere.

So Odyssey decided to release 82 right-handed and 82 left-handed Phil Mickelson ProType putters (replicas of Mickelson's blade) and sell them for $500 each. Remember?

If you missed your chance to get one, or if the price was a tad high, you're in luck: Odyssey is making 3,000 more Phil Mickelson PT 82 putters available for $349. Like the previously released PT 82 putters, these clubs feature a single alignment line, tungsten face insert and dark PVD finish to reduce glare.

If you're interested in getting an Odyssey PT82, go to odysseygolf.com for a list of authorized dealers.

Cobra to release all-white Limited Edition ZL driver

Posted at 10:06 PM by David Dusek

Ian-Poulter-White-Cobra-Driver_600x450 Ian Poulter has never been one to shy away from a fashion statement, so it should come as no surprise that he loves his new all-white, Limited Edition Cobra ZL driver.

In a statement released Thursday night by Cobra Golf, Poulter said:

"I like the visual of the new all-white ZL. It's really very cool. It's really very unique and different than any driver I've seen — plus it's performance is great too. It has the identical performance to the driver I've won with twice."

Poulter has decided to put his Limited Edition ZL in play this week at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai (above).

From a technical standpoint, Poulter should be enamored with his white driver because the Limited Edition ZL has a carbon composite crown and sole, along with a titanium body and clubface, just like the original ZL. And both the original and Limited Edition models feature Cobra's adjustable hosel that allows golfers to position the face in either a neutral, open or closed position using a torque wrench.

But what sets the Limited Edition driver apart is the white head, the white Golf Pride Tour Wrap grip and the white Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 6.0 shaft. According to the release, the shaft alone has a value of $399, which helps to explain the $625 price of the Limited Edition ZL.

The 500 Limited Edition ZL drivers will be available in lofts of 9.5° and 10.5° with a stiff shaft starting December 15, but Cobra is welcoming pre-orders for the club beginning November 15 at participating retailers. To see a list of those dealers, visit cobragolf.com.
