Why Use A Toe Hang Putter?
All the putters listed below can be classified as ‘full toe hang putters’. In essence, this means that they are the very definition of toe down. If you balance the shaft of the putter on your finger, the toe of the putter will point down toward the ground, at almost 90 degrees.
These putters are ideal for players that have a strong arc. The following images further explain what toe hang is, and how it matches up with a strong arc stroke.
Ass you can see from the image above, a maximum toe hang putter hangs almost direly toward the ground.
With this image, you can see the three main types of putting strokes, namely:
Straight Back Straight Through: Players that have a straight path should consider using a face-balanced putter.
Slight Arc: Players that have a moderate arc should invest in a putter with a medium amount of toe hang (between 25 and 45 degrees).
Strong Arc: Players that have a strong arc will find that a maximum toe hang putter complements their natural path. If this applies to you, you should find that the putter feels very balanced as it moves along your ‘inside-square-inside’ putting path.

Odyssey Model 9 Putter
The Odyssey Model 9 Putter has been produced in multiple different styles over the years. This includes the original white-hot design (featured below), an O-works version, a Versa variant, and many more. It is the same type of putter that Phil Mickelson uses.
The only issue is that Odyssey didn’t re-release the Model 9 design with the new White Hot OG Putters. This means that in order to buy one of these bad boys, you will have to pick up a second hand version. Ebay is a pretty solid bet in most cases.
