PGA TOUR (May 8)
WELLS FARGO CHAMPIONSHIP
Titleist Brand Ambassador Max Homa earned win No. 4 on the PGA TOUR – his third trip to the winner’s circle in the last 15 months – with an unflappable finish at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. Playing a Pro V1 golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs -- including a Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 Prototype putter, Homa, 31, closed in 2-under 68 to win by two shots over a group of three players, including fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Young. The win moved Homa to No. 6 in the FedEx Cup Standings and inside the Top 30 of the world ranking (29th) for the first time ever.

Max gives us some insight about his choice of putters in the clip below.

PGA TOUR (April 17)
RBC HERITAGE
With 19 Scotty Cameron Phantom X putters in play at this season's RBC Heritage, more players put their trust in a Scotty Cameron putter than any other brand. Titleist Brand Ambassador Patrick Cantlay continued his fine form, making it to a playoff Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links gaming his Phantom X 5 Prototype.

Cameron Young finished one shot back from making the playoff at 12 under trusting his Phantom X T-11 Prototype.

PGA TOUR - VALSPAR CHAMPIONSHIP NOTES
PGA Tour rookie and Titleist Brand Ambassador Davis Riley earned his best TOUR finish, falling just short on the second hole of a two-man playoff at Innisbrook’s Copperhead Course during last week's Valspar Championship. Playing a full bag of Titleist equipment, Riley put a Scotty Cameron Phantom X T7.2 Tour Prototype putter in play. He has played a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model throughout his rookie season on the PGA TOUR, having switched to a Phantom X 11 late last season on the Korn Ferry Tour. He recently moved to the new Scotty Cameron Phantom X 7.2 Prototype at the Honda Classic, returning to the plumbers neck he had played prior (Newport 2) to the Phantom X 11.

TOUR VALIDATION
The new Phantom X family got off to a fast start on the PGA Tour, as the champion of The American Express won the event playing a new Phantom X 7.5 model for the first time. He finished the week second in Strokes Gained: Putting (+6.402) while averaging 1.577 putts per green in regulation.

“The first time he put it down, the putter just set up perfect for him,” said Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Drew Page. “He was really impressed how it sat on the ground, and thought it looked great. It’s been the same story for many players who’ve put Phantoms in play. ‘Man, this thing sets on the ground perfect. I really like the way it looks.’ He rolled a few putts with it on Tuesday, I just threw his grip on and it went into play.”

Scotty Cameron is the winningest putter brand on the 2021-22 PGA Tour, with Scotty Cameron players already combining for nine victories.

Last season, Patrick Cantlay recorded the Tour all-time putting performance at the BMW Championship with his Phantom X 5, gaining more strokes putting (+14.6) than any player in a single tournament since they began tracking the statistic in 2004. He made 537 feet of putts over the 72 holes of regulation, the longest of any player on the PGA TOUR this season by a margin of 30 feet. Cantlay added another 33 feet, 6 inches of putts in the playoff, putting him over 570 feet (longer than 1 ½ football fields) for the week. The following week, he won the Tour Championship, his fourth victory of the season, and the FedEx Cup.

The current World No. 1 on the LPGA plays a Phantom X 5.5 – inspired by the Futura X 5.5 gamer that Justin Thomas has used to win 12 of his 13 PGA Tour titles. Max Homa (twice) and Garrick Higgo have each won on the PGA Tour playing Phantom X models, while C.T. Pan was one of two players to reach the podium in Tokyo last summer playing a Phantom X. Last season’s PGA TOUR Rookie of the year Will Zalatoris plays a Phantom X 11.
