The new year is upon fully upon and it’s time for some new gear. Out with the old and in with the new.

While your game might still be in winter hibernation for a few more months, now is the perfect time to test drive some new putters. Unless you were pleased with your putting last year of course…Me neither.

To that extent, Scotty Cameron has two new putters you need to check out. Scotty Cameron has long been trusted by many PGA and European Tour pros. In fact, pros using Scotty Cameron putters have already cashed 7 winners’ checks this season. Last year, their haul was 64 worldwide wins including the U.S. Open & PGA Championship.

SELECT NEWPORT 3

The first of these is the Select Newport 3. The first thing to notice is the new teardrop-shaped, heel-shafted, mid-mallet.

Video on YouTube from the Scotty Cameron team:

This done for players who want a smaller round mallet but without sacrificing on toe flow and forgiveness. In addition, the putter features a heal-shafted mid-mallet as mentioned. This is part of the classic Newport head shape you’ve come to expect. The mid-mallet is designed with a flow neck for those of us looking for the most toe flow they can get.

If you liked the Del Mar 3.5 or the GOLO 3 in the past, I would suggest trying the Newport 3. An updated version of a proven winner.

“The Newport 3 features advanced stability weighting with two removable, customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights, a stepless steel shaft engineered for optimal flex and performance, and a supple Red Matador Mid-size grip developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel.”

FUTURA

The other putter hitting the market soon is the Futura Putter.

This putter takes the best features of the GOLO and Futura X line while increasing forgiveness and stability. Helped in part by Scotty Cameron’s work with former World Number One Adam Scott, the Futura 6M has the best moment of impact traits of the original Furtura X line to produce a putter with maximum stability in their stroke and will help lessen the tendency to twist the clubhead at impact.

The way they did it is with two removable, customizable stainless steel sole weights. The feel and feedback is described as “soft, but solid.”

Here’s an awesome commercial talking about it:

There are many Futura designs to choose from so choose wisely if you’re leaning in this direction. You have the 5CB, 5MB, 5W and 5S. Not to mention the Futura 6M and 6M Dual Balance and the Futura 7M. All of these Futura designs have enhanced stability and forgiveness, updated alignment features & instant feedback and feel.

Like all Scotty Cameron putters, these are tour-proven but also equally suited for the average player. What works on Sunday at Oakmont or Hazeltine is going to work for you as well.

Both putters will be available to the general public March 17 and will set you back a shade under $400 for each of them.

Happy shopping!

Enjoy these photos of the new putters:
