first Scotty Cameron

68 posts in this topic

I finished up my first semester of college on Thursday, and made the hour and half drive home that day. When I got back my dad and I went to a place called the golf warehouse which is were all the local golf shops sell their old merchandise from last season. I found a brand new Scotty Cameron Red X3 35''. It was on sale for $150 and another 10 percent off of that so after it was all said and done I bought a brand new Scotty for $135! I am so excited to hit the links already, too bad it is cold and snowing in Minnesota.

My question to all you golf fans out there is your story behind your first Scotty Cameron?

Got back into golf after a 25 year layoff. Got reading on the web about putters and thought I'd try a Cameron putter. Bought a Studio Style and played with it for about three rounds and sold it. It just didn't suit me. I think 4 degrees of loft is too much and the grip ridiculously thin - not that that's hard to change. Now I get a bit nauseous seeng all the "Tour Use Only" and GSS nonsense and fetishism about headcovers, but hey, I'm not saying I wouldn't like a black 009. I have ben gaming an Odyssey Black series 1 (non insert) and a plain old Ping Anser and now a Nike Unitized Tiempo. IMO all three of these putters are superior in feel to an OTR SC, but that's my opinion only. Pride of ownership in golf is not to be underestimated, so, whatever floats your boat!

I got a Studio Stainless Newport 2.0 in my senior year of high school (2004). It has been in the bag ever since. I have considered switching a few times, but I know the occasional bad putting day is my fault. I have made a lot of clutch putts with it over the years. Two 28-putt rounds during my club championship this summer helped bring home the title!

Any suggestions on what a good starter Scotty might be?

I like the look of the California Coronado, do you see it being a lot harder to use than the Monterey from the same range?

All my Scotty's are in the basement where clubs that do not behave go to have a few years off.

Well- it all depends on look and what feels good by my pro seems to think most people would benefit from a face balanced putter. So the squareback #1 or the Newport 2.7 would be ones to look at.

Why would you post a picture of an Odyssey putter in a Cameron story post?

I bought my S/S Newport 2.5 from International Golf a few months ago for.... $80! A steal in my eyes.

My first (and only) Scott was a Newport 2 Mid-Slant. I used it for about 8 months and never felt comfortable with it. It's probably my least favorites putter out of the last 3-4 I've owned.

Congats on completing your first semester! Each one will pass quickly and before you know it, it is over.

Congrats also on your first Scotty. I have been gaming a Scotty for some time and love all of mine. Sounds like you got a good deal as well which makes it even better. Enjoy your putter and your break from school.

My first Scotty was a Red X5 that I bought for $185 new on EBAY. I wanted to try a mallet, but I wanted a small one, not the bigger, high MOI stuff like the Sabertooth or Craz-E. It felt so good, I immediately swore off all insert putters and became a Scotty convert, purchasing and selling (in order to buy others) many more.

Just bought my first scotty today! I got a tei3 newport 2 in MINT condition. It was a steal, got it for $150. I highly reccomend the tei3 line of putters. Distance control is spot on, and the feel is superior

I used to have a Scotty. I had the Studio Style Newport 2, not the Studio Select. Kind of expensive tho so i wouldnt recomend it as a first putter. I'll give you 1 guess of why i dont have it anymore and now have a Odyssey Putter.......................................................................................................................... ......................................................................................................... If you guessed it was stolen out of my garage you are right and win a shiney new golf ball. Luckily my whole bag wasn't stolen because it was in the house. The putter was in the garage with the practice putting green. I hate thiefs. I will eventually go back to the Scotty because they really are great putters, the only problem is my buddy gave me this Odyssey and i have been hitting everything. I hit a few 40 footers this season a ton of 20+ footers and everything from 10 feet in is a gimme. So theres no way im getting rid of this putter till it breaks or it starts acting up. Its a ugly boat but its been doing great, so untill something happens i cant see me getting a new one. But when i do it will be a Scotty again. Most likely the same one that was stolen.

This may be a stupid question but is there any real difference between a scott cameron putter or odyssey than anything else, other than feel? Its not going to make more putts than a 10 dollar putter from Wal Mart, so why is it SOO much better?

    • Bought the wrong flex wedge... should I return?
      If you want the flex to match your other irons, you can have it tipped. The R9 has a .370 diameter parallel tip hosel. The R9 specs sheet confirms this, and that the stock steel shaft was a KBS 90 (90 grams). (The KBS 90 and the Chrome 90 appear to be special shafts made just for TaylorMade - these two shaft offerings don't appear in the general components catalogs). As for matching wedge flex to irons, you hear different ideas on this. Some players like the same shaft in irons and wedges, others like a heavier shaft in the specialty wedges, and still others softstep (soften the flex on) the SW and LW if they rarely hit full shots with them. I would suggest you play a little with the R9 SW, and see if you like it as is. Then, you could get it tipped (hardstepped) if you wanted more control. Caution on the Wedgeflex shaft you found: I was unclean on which wedgeflex shaft you had round. If this is a KBS 90 which matches your current irons, go with it. If it is a KBS Tour 90 parallel tip, it has a stiffer tip area than the KBS 90, and weighs about 100 grams. If it's a Dynamic Golf Wedgeflex, this is probably an S200 shaft that weight about 120 grams, and would weigh a whole lot more than any other iron or wedge shaft you play. 
    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      Black Mass
      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.
