New putters from the Master
Scotty Cameron rolls out 2020 offering
Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron has produced a reboot of his classic designs to produce eight new blade and mid-mallet setups precision milled putters. Retaining the classic Scotty Cameron look the putters look to deliver a tour level performance to the retail market.
All eight of the new putters have been milled from block of solid 303 stainless steel using computer guided tools to craft the various shapes which are sleeker with thinner flat toplines which gives a look preferred by tour professionals.
Special Select blade models are milled with a tour-inspired soft tri-sole design. This self-soling feature promotes a proper setup at address while providing a stable, aesthetically pleasing view of the topline from the moment the putter is placed on the green.
New performance balanced weighting expands on the use of Scotty’s interchangeable, customisable sole weights to tune the performance and feel of putters at all lengths. More weight is directed to the heel and toe which produces an enlarged sweet spot without compromising feel. The mid-mallets employ stainless steel sole weights for optimal balance and weight distribution.
Each Special Select putter neck style has been revamped with the Newport and Newport 2 featuring a slightly shorter plumbing neck for medium toe flow and a newly defined socket radius subtly repositioned with onset to provide clearer visibility of the leading edge at address.
The Newport 2.5 and Fastback 1.5 each have a refined, toe flow promoting small slant neck, while the rounded Flowback 5.5 comes with a new slant back neck for similar strokes. The heel-shafted Del Mar’s flow neck is designed for maximum toe flow. The GOLO-inspired Flowback 5 limits toe flow with a more traditional mid-bend, shaft-over-spud setup.
Newport, Newport 2, Newport 2.5 models feature an insert-free, solid milled 303 stainless steel putter head with performance balanced tungsten sole weighting for a larger sweet spot and increased stability. Flatter and thinner toplines, milled flange sight lines, soft trisoles and redesigned plumbing (Newport, Newport 2) and small slant (Newport 2.5) neck styles round out these timeless blade designs
A classic name returns with the new Special Select Del Mar in an updated heel-shafted, compact mallet model. Precision milled from solid 303 stainless steel, the new Del Mar features refined concave flange contours and a narrower, flatter topline for a player-preferred look at address, and customisable stainless steel sole weights. A left-handed Del Mar is also available.
New Special Select Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5 and Flowback 5.5 mid-mallet putters combine 6061 aircraft aluminium sole plates for optimal weight distribution with solid milled faces and interchangeable stainless steel sole weights. Each has a specific neck style – Fastback 1.5 (small slant), Squareback 2 (plumbing), Flowback (mid-bend shaftover- spud) and Flowback 5.5 (slantback) – to facilitate better leading edge visibility from address, as well as desired toe flow properties.
Special Select putters will be available through Titleist authorised retailers from March 27th.
