PREVIEW: Titleist Scotty Cameron Select putters



The new Scotty Cameron line of Select putters brings together a blend of familiar and popular styles in multi-material heads, matched together for optimal performance.

The six styles, available April 8, each use a new face inlay that Cameron describes as responsive but soft. The models fit into three buckets:

The Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 models are heel-toe weighted blades, and they each use a mid-milled 303 stainless steel inlay, running from sole to topline, that is bonded to the stainless steel body using a material to dampen vibration. The polished look shines brightly and looks great.

Then there's the new Select Newport 2 Notchback, which is a slightly larger, angular blade with a notched flange. Its sole-to-topline inlay is made of 6061 aluminum with a gunmetal gray look. Bonding aluminum instead of steel to the stainless steel body improves moment of inertia because the weighting moves to the perimeter.

There's also a Dual Balance model, which sports a 50-gram heavier head -- coming in at 400 grams -- with a 50-gram counterweight in the butt end of the shaft.

In the third bucket are the Select Newport M1 and Newport M2 mid-mallets. These putters use the 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay found in the Newport 2 Notchback along with pop-through technology.

The face and sole are formed from a single aluminum piece to make up the face inlay, then wraps down and around to create the mid-sole area and pops through the flange. Like with the Notchback, the idea here is to focus weighting on the perimeter for higher MOI.

Each putter comes with a pair of customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights, smooth steel shafts and a Red Matador mid-size grip designed to feel larger but perform to size.

The Scotty Cameron Select putters will retail for $410, with the exception of the Dual Balance Notchback, which will cost $425.
