I think that a lot of people who have purchased an OTR Cameron and think they have something special (even though it is as common, if not more common as any other "name brand" putter) somehow feel that an association with Nike somehow devalues what they have. The implication is that those in the know have SC putters and that Nike is for other people. It's as if the SC name will be tarnished by this association and they will lose part of their sense of cachet. It's only a putter. It is immature snobbery. Did I read the word "elite", a couple of posts back? The custom and " boutique" and SC putters have virtually nothing in common with the OTR putters that isn't shared by a Dozen other manufacturers. SC OTR are the antithesis of "boutique" products.
They are ubiquitous once you get beyond the beginner level. There are millions of them. Yet people persist in thinking there is someting special about them.
If Cameron is to be sold/moving/whatever, I would be very surprised if it goes under the Nike name, I'm sure he will continue, only without the Titleist name, and some sycophantic Japanese fan with billions of spare Yen will buy the company and simply let Scotty Cameron do what he is doing now, unfettered.
