Scotty Cameron Futura X

7 posts in this topic

Hi All

Does anyone have any experience of having tried the new Scotty Cameron Futura X that has just hit retail?  I can't find many place in my area that are stocking it to try but I really, really fancy one.

Just not sure whether it's soft feel, how big the head is etc.

I'd be grateful for any feedback from anyone who has tried it.

thanks

Tried it the other day and it is awful ! Not soft at all a bit like the kombi in size but was hoping it as a soft face but felt awful

that's disappointing.  I have an Odyssey metal x at the moment and that just feels a bit firm for me.

I was hoping this would go back to the traditional Scotty soft feel but having the benefits of high MOI with a bit more technology than the usual blade Scotty's.

As usual, when "Scotty" comes up with his own design it's unspeakably ugly. Personal opinion, of course.

Stick with the designs he copies and you'll be fine.

I think he prefers the term "inspired by" to "copy".

It would seem he also prefers it whe people say "Newport Style" rather than anser copy or "Napa style" to 8802 copy.

Just tried the Futura X today at club I belong to. They let me take it out on a round for a trial. Was using Taylormade Corza Ghost mallet, and thought that was "the one" for me.  Well, the Futura X blew it away.  Needless to say, I own it now.  If you are a straight through putter, with no tilt or lift when you putt, the Futura X practically puts the ball in the hole.  It has a very solid contact when hit, and holds the line more true than any other putter I have used, by far.  Just have to get used to the weight, and how far the ball will roll when hit.  I am convinced this will lower my scores.  I have a club tourney coming up, so I am looking forward to seeing how this performs.  I realize changing something as important as a putter a week before a tourney could be suicide, but the way the ball comes off the face of this putter is unlike anything I have ever used.  By all means, try this putter.  I agree the head cover is like a serving platter in size, but as a plus, it holds on to the putter well, and doesn't fall off when I drive the cart like my other covers have.  That of course is just a small plus, but hey, good to know there is enough velcro to hold the cover on solidly.

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
