Best Scotty Cameron

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I putted with my friends Scotty Cameron Newport 1.5 and it was freaking heaven on earth. It's likely what I'll get for Christmas, but I was wondering if there is a better version of the scotty cameron? Possibly the Studio Select Newport 2, or something like that?

What's your definition of better? If you like it and putt well with it, then it's the best. I have a SC, but it's 15 years old. I haven't felt the need for a new one.

I've had multiple people tell me that for Scotty Cameron putters, you're just paying for the name. But if it works for you, go for it.

My friend, who is easily the best putter out of all my friends, still uses his old beat up "piece of crap" that he's always had, it looks like he found it in a shipwreck yet continues to out putt us regularly! I've never tried a sc but would love to! just to see what all the fuss is about! Can some of those prices be justified??

Agreed, a guy can just go nuts picking out putters every 3 months and all the while it's simply the stroke/confidence/read etc....etc....

 

I have had to put the brakes on myself over the past year I have changed putters 3 times and have finally said enough, had to come to terms with the fact the greens at my home course are some of the fastest deceptive greens in the area and that 1 or 2 three puts a round are bound to happen especially if I'm 50'+ away.

Yeah it's called an Edel ;-)  Choosing a putter is a very individual thing, no way someone can tell you what's "better" without fitting you for it.

A competent Titleist fitter (not necessarily a clerk at a big box store) can help you select a Scotty that is well suited to your putting stroke and style and fits your eye.  Same for Ping and perhaps other brands.  If you're going to spend the money for a premium putter, you should get properly fitted just like for a premium driver.

As @mvmac said, Edel is the way to go. I love mine.

 

Here is a thread I started when I got mine detailing the process of how they fit you.
