Scotty upgrades Newport putters

With scientific efficiency and attention to minute detail, the engineers at Scotty Cameron's California putter studio have been tweaking its Newport range of flat sticks to come up with four more variants, which they believe are capable of slicing even more shots off a golfer's round.

In February Titleist's renowned putter designer, who despises the idea of players chopping millimetres off shafts or adding weights to the sole of his putters to customise them to their own specifications, introduced a Newport 2 range with a selection of shaft lengths and weight combinations.

You would have thought he had all bases covered but now the man who designs the putters used by the world's No.1 golfer has introduced four more Studio Select models - the Newport Squareback, Newport Fastback and Newport 2.6 (centre shafted) and Newport 2.7 (heel shafted, pictured top right).

Each is made from precision milled 303 stainless steel with heel/toe screw weights, which Cameron says 'increases stability by reducing head rotation on off-centre impacts and allows for multiple length options in each model.'

The new additions all feature the distinctive bold red graphics and red Cameron cord grip as well as an improved, Studio models' high toe profile to help eliminate a golfer's the tendency to raise the toe at address and aim left of target.

The new Scotty Cameron Studio Select putters will be available from October with a price yet confirmed but expected to be around the £220 mark recommended for their Newport 2 predecessors.
