easy scratch scotty cameron

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I bought myself a scotty cameron newport 2.0 about 10 months ago and I'm getting lots of little scratches on the sole of the putter. I use a clean towel every week so am unsure as to why its looking so bad. I'm just curious whether anyone else has had this problem. I treat it very well and make sure never to putt it on sand, mud etc in case of damage. i can only assume the paint is a bit thin. i don't guess there is anywhere i can get it re painted or would going back to where i bought it be worth it. Any feedback would be most appreciated.

Ya I think all Scotty putters get those scratches on the bottom. I bought a new one in 2012 and there is a few scratches on it, but its not bad. I treat mine very well also, only removing the cover when I'm putting.

 

Do you have one of those oil rags? I use the oil rag you can buy from the Scotty Cameron site. I use it about every other round or so.

All putters get scratched on the sole unless you top every putt. What's the issue?

I have just ordered one of the rags youve mentioned. Cheers for the response.

The issue is that for such an expensive putter I would expect it to be more durable. I had a odyssey for a lot longer and it was still far less scratched than the scotty.

Good choice buying the oil rag, that will help keeping it look good.

 

The metals that are used on Scotty putters are soft, so they are prone to scratches. Thats why they feel so great on impact.

Just like every other milled putter out there.

They feel no different. If they did, every pro would use one.

He is a bit of a grumpy cat, just to warn you!

 

Some putters have a coating on base that may reduce scratching.  I don't think Scottys do.  My Scotty, I got used, had fine scratches, but I got used to it.  I actually have lead tape on the base for a bit of added weight now.  It is protecting the base as well.  Bare metal will get hairline scratches unfortunately.

You could also try some of that chrome wheel polish from the auto parts store. Get the Mothers Wheel polish, that will get rid of the tiny scratches. Then use the oil rag on it.

Says the person who starts a thread about minute scratches on the sole of a putter and thinks there is a "problem".
