Scotty Cameron putters

Recommended Posts

Papa's getting a brand new putter for Christmas

I have decided that I have had enough of my old Winex putter (I know, it's second-hand, and I've never heard of the name either).

Instead, I think it's about time to get a Scotty Cameron and join the masses of Cameron fans.

I'm wondering, what is the benefit of the iridescent Studio Design finish? I've seen rusted Studion Design putters: is there a benefit to having a rusty putter, like there is to having a rusty wedge?

Finally, are there any recommendations for SC putters? Tell all of your Cameron glory tales here!

I can't see ever wanting a rusty putter, but thats me. I don't mind it on my Oil Can wedges, but thats a different story. Scotty putters are awesome, the Newport 2 I have feels great (I should be getting it refinished sometime this spring). Make sure you get the right length. I think a lot of guys (like myself) make the mistake of getting a "stock" 35" putter when they would do well to play on 33-34" in length. Beyond that, its up to you. I'd like to pick up a Newport 2.5 one day... it doesn't have the plumber's neck. Enjoy that putter when it comes!

I just picked up this baby for xmas. I was trying other putters, but this one felt very solid and not too light which I liked. It was kind of pricey, but oh well. I'll probably keep it forever. Plus, I'll probably use it the most out of all my clubs lol.

I'm looking at buying my first cameron by the end of jan. I'm not too keen on the inserts that are in the newer one though. Anyone have any feedback positive or negative aobut them.

Better with or with the inserts?

If you don't like the insert, you can always get the studio style which is just the milled face. I believe it's cheaper and has a nicer finish on it. ;)

Before going all Titleist in November, I was using the Phantom 2 center shafted mallet and it was a nice feeling putter. I am now playing the Newport Studio Style with the insert and it just unbelievable the feel the insert makes. It feels better then the Phantom 2 or the Studio Design I had before that. I did try the Odessey 2 ball tour model but never felt comfortable with it. Have played SC's for about 4 years and feel that they are worth every penny. Just my take on it.

I've had two black gun-metal Camerons in my life, a Newport Two (which I still have) and a Coronado which Erik sent through the Cameron shop . I love the feel of the black Camerons more than the newer ones. They are a bit softer and more pretty to look at if there isn't much rust.

Currently I'm playing a 2-ball, but if I switched the first putters I would try would be anything Cameron. Solid, solid clubs.

I'm a big fan of the anser design, but was never satisfied w/ the light weight of the putter. When I first tried the Cameron Newports, that did it for me and I bought one even though it was more than the driver I have now. :p It's a very solid feeling putter and I love it and don't think I'll replace it unless it's another Cameron.

Hey forum. I made really simple little Scotty Cameron Putter site that shows you all of the Scotty Cameron ebay listings at a glance just by clickin. I find it useful, I know a bookmark would have a similar effect, but i set this up to be even simpler. Let me know what you guys think:

    • I'm a member at the club where Xander grew up playing, obviously everyone is super excited to see him get this win and launch himself into "elite" status on tour. He won 1.58M and an extra 2M for finishing 3rd in Fed Ex Cup. This time last year he was playing in the Web.com finals.
    • Gotcha. Thanks. That's a possibility too. I don't feel like I am hanging back but as you know feel ain't real.  Most likely my problem is a combination of things (maybe ball too far back combined with hanging back?). This started happening out of the blue and has been going on for about 2 weeks (5-6 rounds), and even with range work i have not been able to shake it off... yet! Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll try to double check them one at a time until I can tell for sure whether my not implementing them is the culprit. It shouldn't be too hard to recover from this, but it sure is annoying...
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/JonMa1/round/1859679?hole_id=34840967 Short and mid iron approaches were pretty good. Pitches, chips were fine. I just had a rough time controlling the driver until the 13th today. Also had issues topping some 5i and 4i shots though I did hit a couple nice 4i shots. Putting was pretty poor today. I'm getting acceptable distance from my driver since having the shaft shortened and contact seems better. Unfortunately, controlling the club face continues to be a challenge. Excessive penalties have been the theme for 2017. Lowering my handicap from longer courses will be next to impossible if I don't improve this part of my game.
    • I'm surprised he didn't at least ponder if there was a rule on that. I didn't know but had it happened to me I definitely would've asked my partner or someone there, 'hey is there a rule about this?' Certainly shows how it pays to know the rules. 
    • At 63 I have all the same challenges others have noted. In addition, poorer eyesight has been a new challenge. I never had to play with glasses from age 10 to late 40's and then quit golf. Now at 63 and back playing golf, just seeing the ball clearly at address has been a significant issue for me. And of course corrective lenses that work at address aren't right for reading or distance vision. Anyone else? I'm afraid between poorer vision and all the senior physical challenges, my days of consistently finding the sweet spot on my clubs are probably over. Game improvement clubs here I (reluctantly) come...
