Titleist Scotty Cameron has unveiled its new Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X mallet putter.
Futura X is a high MOI, modern mallet design with advanced perimeter weighting that provides exceptional stability and forgiveness with solid feel. It comes as a direct result of Cameron’s extensive work with Titleist staffer Adam Scott, who used a prototype version of the putter in winning the 2013 Masters.
Scott, who has been using Cameron putters for more than a decade, calls Futura X “the most stable putter I have ever played.”
Precision milled from high grade 6061 aluminium, the unique Futura X design combines a rear balance bar with deep heel-toe weights plus perimeter weighting under the face.
The resulting deep CG provides stability throughout the stroke, while the perimeter weighting adds forgiveness and solid feel, leading to unmatched stability and great roll.
“I like to describe Futura X as a lethargic putter, for those golfers that need a slow, steady stroke that doesn’t jump around a lot,” said Cameron, whose putters have been the # 1 choice of players on the PGA Tour since 1997 and counting.
“It’s the perfect design for Adam, and will give confidence to all golfers that want stability during the stroke and less hand manipulation.”
Futura X features four stainless heel-toe weights, two 20g weights on the rear balance bar and two adjustable sole weights (configured depending on the length) in the front corners of the putter under the face. The overall headweight of Futura X is 20 grams heavier than a standard Cameron Select putter.
However, since much of the weight is located behind the axis of the shaft and not directly under the golfer’s hands, the Futura X feels stable but not heavy during the stroke.
“Futura X is what I call a ‘force balanced’ design,” added Cameron. “While the putter has a near-face balanced shaft configuration that would normally produce a slight toe hang, there’s so much weight off the back of the putter that it forces the face to hang flat. The rear balance bar allows us to add considerable weight a fairly long distance away from the shaft axis, which is really what drives the high MOI.”
The Scotty Cameron Futura X will hit the shelves on August 1, at RRP £279.
