New Scotty Cameron Select Putters
Unveiled by Titleist
Words: John Dean
Titleist have launched their new Scotty Cameron Select putters. The key update is the introduction of innovative face inlay technology to produce responsive feel and feedback that golfers have described as “soft but solid.”
“This new Select line promotes feel while expanding what’s possible with performance,” said Scotty Cameron. “We’ve extended the methodology of our proven multi-material technology to include new stainless steel inlays for blades, as well as aluminium inlays for the mid-mallet models. The result is a better look, a better sound, a better feel and a better product.”
Central to the new Select line are three unique multi-material constructions matched to each putter style. The new face inlays – which wrap around the sole and disappear from the player’s view at address, as opposed to a traditional face insert that occupies only a specific centre section of the face – are presented in three unique setups to complement each putter shape and size.
“While performance is always the end goal, I first design for aesthetics. Initially, a design has to appeal to the eye. But, when you examine the components, you can appreciate the technology that goes into creating these amazing new putters,” Cameron said. “I’ve worked with insert ideas for years. This is the culmination of my research, the various inlays we’ve developed for this new line.”
The new model range is as follows:
Select Newport: Classic heel-and-toe weighted blade with a plumbing neck, shorter rounded contours, a 303 stainless steel face inlay and new flange sight line.
Select Newport 2: Legendary low-slung modern heel-and-toe weighted blade with a plumbing neck, longer angular lines, 303 stainless steel face inlay and a flange sight line.
Select Newport 2.5: Modern blade with longer Newport 2 profile, crisp lines, short flare neck, 303 stainless steel face inlay and flange sight line.
Select Newport 2 Notchback: Angular modern blade with distinct, mechanical contours, a notched flange, flowing single-bend shaft, and a 6061 aircraft grade aluminium face inlay with a single flange sight line.
Select Newport M1 Mallet: Rounded, flowing mid-mallet with 6061 aircraft aluminium wrap-around face-sole technology, sweeping single-bend shaft, and pop-through flange alignment system.
Select Newport M2 Mallet: Rectangular, boxy mid-mallet with 6061 aircraft aluminium face-sole technology, flowing single-bend shaft, and pop-through flange alignment system.
Select Newport 2 Notchback Dual Balance: Features a 50-gram heavier putter head counter-balanced with a 50-gram weight in the grip-end of the shaft to stabilise the putting stroke; 38” standard length with a 15” Dual Balance grip to slow down and stabilise the butt end of the putter throughout the stroke.
The new Scotty Cameron Select putters are available in golf shops worldwide from 8th April and will retail at £320.
