When I was in high school, I desperately wanted a Scotty Cameron putter with a Teryllium insert. The heads looked incredible with the contrasting insert, and winners played them. The TeI3 designs won majors and big tournaments, including Tiger Woods' breakthrough win at the Masters.
Now, 22 years after I started high school -- which is frightening to think about -- Scotty Cameron has introduced three new putter models using the Teryllium insert under the T22 name.
Two of the models, the Teryllium T22 Newport and Teryllium T22 Newport 2, are modern versions of the TeI3 models first introduced in 1997. The third model, the Teryllium T22 Fastback 1.5, gets a Teryllium insert for the first time.
The heads are milled from 303 stainless steel, finished with a tactical matte-black look and feature an updated version of the milled Teryllium inlay that has a modern vibration-dampening elastomer membrane. There are removable sole weights to help customize feel, and the domino-inspired pattern behind the face harkens back to another era.
- The Teryllium T22 Newport takes a lot of cues from the original putter Woods used to destroy the Masters record books, but has a flat topline and sole weights that weren't in the OG version.
- The Newport 2 model in the T22 line blends the Teryllium inlay and updated finish with a modern shaping in the Newport 2 sold these days.
- The Teryllium T22 Fastback 1.5 has mini-slant neck, a thinner topline similar to the Select line’s Fastback model and a more balanced square setup.
All three models have stepless steel shafts and a special headcover and shaft band, as well a black Pistolini Plus grip with copper paintfill with less taper for the lower hand.
The Scotty Cameron Teryllium T22 putters are available Aug. 16 for $600 each.
