Titleist unveils new Scotty Cameron Select putters

Titleist has unveiled new Scotty Cameron Select putters engineered with new face inlay technology for improved feel and boasting three unique enhanced multi-material constructions matched to each putter style.

“This new Select line promotes feel while expanding what’s possible with performance,” said Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron.

“We’ve extended the methodology of our proven multi-material technology to include new stainless steel inlays for blades, as well as aluminium inlays for the mid-mallet models. The result is a better look, a better sound, a better feel and a better product.”

The face inlays are hidden from view at address, unlike traditional face inserts, and are presented in three setups to complement each style. 

- New Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 models, the next generation of Scotty’s long-time tour favourites, are modern heel-and-toe weighted blades designed to support flowing strokes.

Each model features a sole-to-topline 303 stainless steel inlay that is precision mid-milled and hand-buffed to a brilliant, metallic finish, then bonded to the stainless steel body using high-tech vibration dampening material. This fusion of materials hopes to provide golfers with responsive feel and feedback at impact.

- New Select Newport 2 Notchback is a slightly larger, angular modern blade with a notched flange . It features a sole-to-topline 6061 aircraft grade aluminium inlay anodized in gunmetal grey.

The lightweight aluminium inlay, bonded to the stainless steel body with vibration dampening material, aims to enhance sound and feel while moving more weight from the stainless steel to the perimeter for improved MOI and stability.

- New Select Newport M1 and Newport M2 mid-mallets combine a 6061 aircraft grade aluminium inlay with Scotty’s face-sole pop-through technology.

The face-sole is a single piece of lightweight aluminium that comprises the face inlay, wraps down and around to create the midsection of the sole and pops through the flange to create the sightline field.

This construction concentrates weight on the perimeter to produce higher MOI and stability for “straight back/straight through” strokes. The lightweight aluminium face-sole is fine tuned for sound and feel through vibration dampening material attached to the stainless steel core.

“While performance is always the end goal, I first design for aesthetics. Initially, a design has to appeal to the eye. But, when you examine the components, you can appreciate the technology that goes into creating these amazing new putters,” Cameron said.

“I’ve worked with insert ideas for years. This is the culmination of my research, the various inlays we’ve developed for this new line.”

A new Select Newport 2 Notchback Dual Balance model is also available for players who prefer a Newport-style head but need maximum stability in their stroke.

Like all Dual Balance models, Newport 2 Notchback DB has a 50-gram heavier head (400 grams total) and a 50-gram counterweight in the butt of the shaft. This configuration helps many players make a proper stroke where the butt of the shaft remains pointed at the midsection.

Each new Select putter features advanced stability weighting with two customisable stainless steel heel-toe weights, stepless steel shafts and supple Red Matador Mid-size grips (Newport 2 Notchback DB employs a 15-inch Dual Balance grip) developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel.

The Select line’s raw stainless steel finish was refined with a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare resistant appearance. Additionally, his tour-inspired graphics blend the familiar three bright translucent red dots with engraved typography.
