Callaway Golf announced the introduction of the Odyssey ProType 82 Putter, a limited edition design inspired by the same model Phil Mickelson used to win his third Green Jacket. Only 82 right-handed and 82 left-handed ProType putters will be available for purchase in the United States.

Beginning May 10 at 11:00 a.m. ET, those interested in owning one of these limited edition putters can sign up to be eligible for purchase on a first-come basis at OdysseyGolf.com. Each of these 164 individually numbered, limited edition putters features a green highlight on the sole, a nod to Mickelson's win at Augusta earlier this month.

The ProType 82 features Odyssey's new White Ice insert, with a Tungsten weight behind it, along with a single white sightline that stretches from the face of the putter down the back flange-a look requested by Mickelson himself. These limited edition PT 82 putters will also come with a Phil Mickelson Limited Edition headcover and a Black Series grip, identical to what the four-time major champion used to win at Augusta.

"I'm very excited that the designers at Odyssey have produced this limited edition putter with the same design as my gamer," Mickelson said. "Tournaments are won and lost on the green, which is why I rely on Odyssey technology. Our design team gives me the best chance to win. Odyssey's winning results on tour are a testament to their engineering capabilities."

Each of the 164 individually numbered, limited edition ProType 82 putters will be available at an asking price of $500.

GolfToImpress.com: Mickelson using Callaway PM Wedge Hybrid

Golf.com's David Dusek confirmed while speaking with Callaways lead designer Roger Cleveland that Phil Mickelson is using a new PM Prototype Hybrid this week at the U.S open.  Although its still in prototype phase Phil himself provided a lot of input in its build.

Previously Phil was using Callaway Golf's FT Hybrid off and on depending on the tournaments course venue.

Roger Cleveland did not divulge any specifics on the club, its design, or the technologies used but Mickleson did speak to reporters saying:

"This is a special club I actually made, taking the back part of the hybrid out so that I can open it way up and get through that thick rough."

Of course its far to early to confirm if this club will make it into retail release but it was still a great find by David Dusek and we felt is was worthy to report on.

It looks pretty good to me, very simple from what we can see from the small image, I can barely make out the word's Callaway & Prototype on it. By what Phil Mickleson is saying it appears the logic is somewhat similar to a wedge with trailing edge relief to help him open it up. That makes good sense if you plan on being in the rough a lot.

Callaway X Prototype

callaway20tour20proto1The Callaway Forged X Prototype Blade was apart of the Tour Authentic release and cannot be overlooked. They come from a company that has based their goals on forgiveness and not necessarily the workability achieved from a blade, which is why they are only offered in limited amounts.

If you can find a set, they will feature a X-Muscle flighted design which places the center of gravity in the shorter irons at the highest muscle point and progressively moves it to the lowest point in the longer irons. This allows for trajectory control which moves to the lowest in the long irons for high, soft landing shots.

They are also made from soft 1020 carbon steel and are forged by the famed Endo manufacturing facility. All in all these irons offer a good balance of forgiveness and feel when it comes to the blade style category.
