The new Scotty Cameron by Titleist putters have just been announced in the new Studio Select range; the Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2 and Newport 2 Mid Slant.
They’ll hit in March for an SRP £220, and more info can be found after the hop.
Scotty Cameron by Titleist putters are tour-proven instruments of uncompromised feel, looks and performance. Notably prominent across the worldwide professional tours, Cameron putters have been the top choice of more players and more winners on the U.S. PGA TOUR for more than a decade. As a market leader in the premium putter category, Titleist further solidifies its high performance product offering with the introduction of the Scotty Cameron Studio Select family of Newport-style putters.
For the first time, each of the new Studio Select putters will be available in 33”, 34” and 35” lengths, as circular weights in the heel and toe will deliver the optimal head weight for each shaft length. With four Newport based models the new line features two different body styles – the Newport and Newport 2 – and three different neck configurations – plumbing, short flair and mid slant. This flexibility makes it easy for golfers to choose a Studio Select putter with the appearance they prefer, the length they need and a neck configuration that provides the proper amount of toe flow during the stroke.
“Different golfers require putters of different lengths, body and neck configurations,” comments Scotty Cameron, Master Putter Designer. “However, most putter heads are only weighted for 35-inch shafts and therefore, are much too light for shorter lengths, or too heavy for longer lengths. Too often the same heads are placed in shafts of all lengths. This results in the golfer having to hit at the ball instead of being able to stroke the ball, creating distance control problems. The Studio Select putter line delivers a wide range of specifications, designed to accommodate a wider range of golfer requirements.”
All four putter models – the Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2 and Newport 2 Mid Slant – feature a high toe set-up that reduces the tendency for players to raise the toe and aim left of target, and a stepless steel shaft for a clean, unbroken playing position appearance. Tour-inspired cosmetics include three large red dots on the back of the putter, three smaller red dots on the heel of the face, and distinct Studio Select graphics, shaftband and headcover. The model name is engraved into the sole, and the soft 303 stainless material delivers a crisp, solid feel at impact and enhances durability for a timeless style. All models are available in right hand. The Newport 2 model is available left hand in all three lengths as well.
Studio Select putters will be available in the UK from March 15, 2008, with a suggested retail price of £220.
