Scotty Cameron... Should I? - Page 3

Titleist has SC fittings just like their Irons, Drivers etc...

 

SC putter fittings take place at Scotty Cameron's only recently opened studio. They're $350 just for the fitting.

Pepsi is not the benchmark. They're second (by a fairly wide margin) to… Coca Cola.

That's what I currently have now, a Ping iN Anser V2 Putter. Like I stated, nothing wrong with that putter at all, I actually play pretty well with it, except for last night, but again it wasn't the putter more the puttie!

Of course you could go that route, but its not necessary as I said.  Titleist has fittings at demo day events....

 

 

We (Titleist Tech Rep) are hosting Scotty Cameron Putter Fitting Days. The best thing to do is check the Titleist web site for an event in your area...  and ensure they bring the putting line to your specific event as well.. but flying out to get a personal fitting is not the only way...the events are limited of course but they exist...c'mon man.

Due to all the requests for Scotty Cameron putter demos, this summer we will be having limited putter events throughout the country.  The rep will bring all the Cameron putters, talk about toe flow, styles of putting and help each individual player select the putters that fit their style.  It will be limited to about 20 players so that everyone can get individual attention.

I see you didnt get the Pepsi joke.  That was my point...

 

In restaurants everyone asks for Coca-Cola, and the waiters have to frequently say: "Is Pepsi Okay?"         

 

So Pepsi should change their slogan.... the benchmark is Coca-Cola... whether lots of people love Pepsi or not... it is what it is...Lol

 

 

Lastly...

 

This was my point..

 

1-You use the putter more than any other club

2-So make a quality investment

3-Let feel and performance rule, not necessarily cost etc..

4-You cannot go wrong with a SC, they are top quality benchmark, proven and made the in USA

5-Get fitted for any club you buy in today's world...

 

that's all.  Hope this helps. Enjoy!

But I don't think that's him.

He's just quoting their advertising PR junk.

Those are almost pointless. You get fit for length, basically, no? Using off-the-rack putters that are already built. Maybe they can bend the lie angle and change the loft a little, but… meh.

 

Better than nothing, but not by much IMO.

FWIW, Pepsi commonly refers to Coke in their ads, etc. Coke doesn't refer to Pepsi.

People disagree with you on #4. You can go wrong. You can easily get a putter that's not very well fitted to you. And unlike a $99 putter, you've probably spent $300 to make that mistake.

 

I'm not bashing Titleist or Scotty Cameron. I'm saying that the odds of almost randomly being fit perfectly for a SC putter are almost nil. That's all.

Naw I can clearly see you're no basher. No worries man.

Here are my two flat sticks I use and rotate throughout the season, based on which is hot. Been using these for over 12 years..

That bottom one is identical to my putter.

Nice. Do you take the putter head slightly inside on the takeaway, then square, then slightly inside on the follow through? I'm curious.

Yes, that is similar to how I putt. I've tried putting with a straight path but I always pulled all my putts that way.

I really like my $80 Cleveland Classic putter. If I have $300 to spend on golf equipment, it probably won't be on a putter (not all or even most of it, anyway).

post #49 of 104
I like Cleveland golf clubs too. Cleveland was the only wedge I played for a very long time.

Most perimeter weighted putters are similar to the original PING design. i.e. SC Newport, Never Comp, your Cleveland Classic.

I agree, classic design and personal preference.

Nice. I ask because that's my stroke too and it works best with the Pro Platinum like yours.

Hi, just wondering what is the general rule for offset v's no offset on putters, is it just personal preference to the eye, or is it meant to be designed for a particular kind of stroke?
I have the Newport 2.6, straight centre shafted, no offset at all and I really like it compRed to my previous offset putter!

I could be wrong, but I thought offset was more of a personal preference. I know that a center balanced vs toe hang putter will tend to lend themselves to different strokes (center balanced is better for straight back and through, toe hang usually is used if your putting stroke has an arc) but I think the offset is a visual deal to help you square the face. At least that's what the offset on an iron is for: to help you square the face because it visually looks different.

There are so many putter styles - I swear I have one in practically EVERY style made.     I change them from time to time depending on what is working (or more importantly NOT working) at the time.     I have no distinct preference, so I would never spend the $$ on a Scotty until I really dial in on what putter style I prefer... OP really needs to know what style he likes, and if there's no doubt, then pony up.    just my $.02

After another successful day on the course on the greens... well I will be keeping my Ping putter in the bag and spend the $300 on greens fees......
