Need some serious help here! Possible fake Cameron

16 posts in this topic

Wow. I just feel sick to my stomach. In my haste I bought a Scotty Cameron putter from a guy on Criagslist for $200.00 used. It is a Studio Select Newport 2 and is almost flawless...except for this:
I thought I was a pretty good judge of fakes but on the way home I stopped at Golf Galaxy and looked at a few; the serial number on mine looks different. It is directly under the crown on the front, (not the back), and the numbers appear to be bigger than the ones at Golf Galaxy. It is my presumption I just bought a fake.

Any help would be swell, I just feel ill right now. Does the magnet test work or is there anything else I should be doing to authenticate it? That is other than paying $60.00 to Scotty Cameron to tell me it is probably not real.

Thanks!

Call the company and they should be able to tell you if the serial number is real. There is a chance they made clones, meaning fakes using a real serial number.

On the Scotty Website there's a registry authentication... does that not work?

I think we need that as a new smiley. Also, an edit version about video of your swing.

That's for authenticated putters/headcovers/etc.

Yes. Magnet test works pretty well. If it sticks...bad news for ya.

I will try to upload some pictures....first time so it might not work.
My main concern is the position of the serial number; it is on the front of the putter, not the reverse and the numbering appears bigger than the ones I viewed at the store.
Thanks again for the input.

It didn't by chance have plastic wrap on the head when you got it, did it? If so, that's a dead giveaway.

The fact that you said it's "almost flawless" could be a hint, if you meant that it has some blemishes, because they don't release blemished products. If you meant the condition, then disregard that.

Trust me, I feel your pain. I traded a couple clubs a while back to someone for a fake Scotty on craigslist and then the punk kid dissapeared.

So frustrating. I was boiling for a month.

I feel for you my friend. I know alot of people who got "taken" by people on Craigslist. Well try everything that everyone has listed. Hopefully you will have some answers soon.

Where you able to resolve the issue? Anyone know if the serial number placement was changed over the years?

I checked my Cameron and the serial number is beneath the grip on the bottom of the shaft, i.e. you can't see it from the playing position... my dad's Cameron is the same, he has a Fastback model... Don't have any experience with craigslist, is there any legal action you can take against the seller if it is indeed a fake? Hate that you had a bad experience, hopefully things will get worked out

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
