easy scratch scotty cameron

11 posts in this topic

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".

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
