I just returned my 3 month old Scotty Cameron California series Sonoma for a brand new one as the original one developed whitish spots all over the top and bottom of the head. My son has also has a California series (Hollywood) and after 3 weeks of use he is starting to see the same white spots. We both wipe off the putter after every green. Someone we play with suggested it could be fertilizer on the greens that are making the heads discolor.
It is like the gold dip is starting to blotch. I am concerned that this is typical of the California line. I know it won't affect the performance, but I hate spending $300 for a putter that will discolor after a few months.
I am thinking of returning it for a Studio Select line.
Anyone experience anything like this?
