As sure as spring brings warmer weather to northern climes, so does it give golfers the latest-generation putters from Scotty Cameron, for the clubmaker has a habit of releasing versions of his work this time of year. His recent releases include seven new Futura models and an addition to his Select line, the Newport 3.
According to Cameron, the Select Newport 3 is a “teardrop-shaped, heel-shafted mid-mallet” with “melt-into-the-ground” lines. The head features a precision-milled, 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum face inlay that is fused to a 303 stainless steel body, with weight distributed to enhance stability and forgiveness. In addition, he crafted a built-in vibration-dampening system with this puppy that connects the inlay with the body to provide what Cameron describes as “soft but responsive feel.” As is the case with every putter in the Select line, the Newport 3 also boasts a pair of removable heel and toe weights, a stepless steel shaft and a Red Matador mid-sized grip.
With regard to the putters that make up the new Futura line, each of them features wraparound, face-sole construction milled from that same aircraft-grade aluminum and integrated with that same grade of stainless steel. Cameron moved weight back and to the perimeter in these, which allowed him to produce larger putter heads that are extremely stable and resistant to twisting during the stroke. The Futuras also come with a vibration-dampening system and improved alignment options as well as removable sole weights and a stepless steel shaft.
Cameron describes two of the models – the 5CB (for Cavity Back) and 5MB (for Muscle Back) as “elegant, rounded mid-mallets” and adds that the 5W (for Wing) and 5S (for Straight Shafts) are “improvements” on the previous-generation Futura X5 and X7M models. As for the 6M (for Moment of Inertia), he says that was inspired by his work with Adam Scott. A Futura 6M DB (for Dual Balance) is made for those players who need maximum stability in their strokes, while the 7M boasts refined shaping of the back wings and dual-purpose alignment.
