Titleist Scotty Cameron Select putters
Monday, February 17, 2014
ORLANDO – Titleist has announced that the Scotty Cameron Select line of putters has been updated, with five models arriving in pro shops starting on April 18.
While there are some subtle difference between this version of the Select line and the previous one, they’re not radical. Think refinement, not revolution.
Each of the three blade-style putters and two mid-size mallets are machine milled from a single block of 303-stainless steel. They feature adjustable weights positioned in the toe and heel areas of the sole. Golfers can’t adjust them, but fitters can swap out weights to ensure the putter’s swing weight is optimized.
All five putters will be available in 33-, 34- and 35-inch right-handed versions. The Newport 2 and Fastback also will be available in those three lengths in left-hand models.
The new Select line features a deeper face-milling pattern, like Cameron’s California putter line, which Titleist claims creates a richer sound and feel at impact.
Unlike the previous Select line, which had a black finish, the updated models have a chrome-like finish that Cameron calls Silver Mist. Even with the new finish, at address the blade-like Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 look very similar to previous Cameron putters. However, the Fastback and Squareback have been given a new, red crisscross alignment line and a red, aluminum sole plate.
According to Cameron, the alignment lines will allow golfers to see if the putter face is closed or open at address because of improper ball position. Opting for lightweight aluminum in the sole, Cameron was able to shift more weight to the heel and toe areas.
Each of the new putters will cost $349.
