Collin Morikawa switches his putter again – and marvels at ‘incredible’ results

Collin Morikawa

Collin Morikawa isn’t a professional who changes clubs lightly, but he also isn’t averse to moving with the times.

Right now that means he has taken up a brand new Logan Olson putter.

Morikawa unleashed a new Logan Olson blade prototype putter during the practice rounds at the 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational and switched the putter into his competition bag.

“Yeah, I’ve switched putters my entire career, but, you know, just what we’ve seen, I like how it rolls off the face,” Morikawa told GolfWRX.

“When you actually get the data, it’s incredible how much better it rolls, even though the TaylorMade rolled in insanely good. It’s nearly the exact same putter, the same look. We cleaned up a few things that I actually never looked at.”

Morikawa can find testing equipment a bit overwhelming showing that professionals also get all turned around when trying out clubs.

“What’s crazy about professional golf is that we have everything at our disposal,” Morikawa continued. “Like, you can change anything. You can change all this, change all that, and, you kind of go down this path sometimes where you’re like, it’s too much and you don’t really know what you need. And sometimes what’s there is good enough.

“But it’s cool. You know, we went through a lot of little tweaking here and there, seeing the face, not seeing it, the dot, and he just cleaned it all up. So I’m loving it … it’s been fun. He’s [Olson] incredibly smart. He has a knack for just asking all the questions on what you’re trying to see and what you’re trying to get out of a putter, and, it’s been awesome.”

The new Logan Olson putter design comes with a dot on the crown for the sightline, a grooved face insert, two sole weights, a Mitsubishi Diamana P105-gram 1.0-flex shaft and a SuperStroke Zynergy Tour 2.0XL grip. The club has been customised for Morikawa.

Logan Olso putters are making waves on the PGA Tour for their sleek classic look with a modern edge.

“I like to tell people I don’t make putters; the canvas of a putter just gets in my way,” Olson said.

“I try to make rocket parts, or jewelry, or a Swiss watch. It just happens to be on that platform of a putter. Sure, like many, myself absolutely included in this, we are re-imagining concepts that have been around for quite some time now. But it’s in the way I try to approach these problems that I believe creates my difference. From start to finish, I put my thumbprint on this process in my own unique way. It’s a twist on what’s expected and executed in my own language. The deeper you look, the more you find.”
