Consistent ball speed plus being able to control the speed and therefore the distance is the key to great putting. Callaway has made use of their experience using artificial intelligence software to design woods and irons for the past several years and have now applied the same high tech to finding solutions for their Odyssey putter line. Their stated goal being to provide speed consistency putt-to-putt even though impact may not necessarily be in the center of the face.

The end product is the Ai-ONE and Ai-ONE Milled putters.

Both have odd-looking contours in the backing of the face insert, a result of this latest use of technology to do thousands of computer iterations to test the results of different configurations and using machine learning to improve results after each trial. The announcement pointed out, “By applying these A.I. enhancements to our inserts, we’re delivering consistent ball speed across the face.”

Ai-ONE Milled models are already in use on the professional tours by such players as Jon Rahm who is ranked number three in the world.
