Home TITLEIST ADDS NEW PUTTERS FOR 2012:

Coming into 2012, putters were expected to get plenty of attention. Belly putters in particular due to some TOUR players using the product in competition last year. It may surprise more than a few to know that since 1997 and counting, more players on the PGA TOUR have turned to Scotty Cameron more than any other putter brand. Last year, Scotty Cameron putters were involved in 18 victories, second to none on TOUR. Chris Kirk, Scott Stallings, Scott Piercy and Kevin Na won for the first time at the Viking Classic, Greenbrier Classic, Reno-Tahoe Open and the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children, respectively and each used a Cameron model putter.

Nick Watney won twice in 2011, at the WGC – Cadillac Championship and the AT&T National. Rory McIlroy turned in a performance for the ages with one, lapping the field en route to his first major title at the U.S. Open with a GSS Newport prototype model, which he also used when he won the Honda a couple of weeks ago. With additional wins across seven different worldwide professional golf tours in 2011, including the 140th Open Championship (Darren Clarke), Scotty Cameron loyalists accumulated 58 victories. Scotty Cameron has found a way to satisfy the best players in the world.

Heading into the recreational playing season worldwide, there is a brand new Scotty Cameron by Titleist Select line of putters that features a few changes to its line up. The new family includes five modern blade models (Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback, Newport 2.6), two mallets (GoLo, GoLo S), three mid lengths (Newport Two Mid, GoLo Mid, GoLo S Mid), and two long options (Big Sur, Big Sur S). It’s worth noting that half of the 10 models will be either belly versions or long, which is the type that Adam Scott uses.

putters“My ultimate goal when designing and building a putter is to provide the golfer pure putting confidence,” said Cameron in a statement.  “Whether it is for the best players in the world or golfers who aspire to play their best, the performance and preference options available in the new Cameron Select line are my deepest yet. These putters have all been tour-validated, developed and refined through product and player research conducted at our state-of-the-art Cameron Putter Studio and on practice greens around the world.”

The conventional models - the new Cameron Select Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback and Newport 2.6 putters - replace the Studio Select line. The head features a rich, dark, glare free Black Mist finish with red dot graphics and red dot weights in the sole, and is covered with a new Cameron Select headcover. The grip is a new Select black with a red dancing Cameron logo. All standard right hand models are available in 33, 34 and 35-inch lengths, as well as 34H and 35H custom heavier weight configurations.

The GoLo Mallets and GoLo Mids replace the Studio Select Kombi Mallet and Kombi Mid lines. The stock conventional length mallets are available in 33, 34 and 35 inches as well as 34H and 35H custom heavier weight configurations. The Newport Two Mid, GoLo Mid and GoLo S Mid come in a standard length of 43” with custom lengths of 40-46” available. The Select Big Sur and Big Sur S replace the Studio Select Kombi Long line in the Cameron putter family. The Big Sur and Big Sur S Long putters are available with a standard length of 49” and a lie angle of 79°, with lengths of 46-52” available through custom order.

All conventional length Scotty Cameron Select and Select GoLo putters begin shipping to golf shops on April 1, 2012, while the Select Mid and Long putters will be available beginning May 1, 2012. The new Cameron Select putters all carry a MSRP of $375.
