Congratulations to Scotty Cameron putter loyalist and Titleist full line player Lee Hodges who won his first PGA TOUR event, the 3M Open, trusting a GOLO 6 Tour prototype. Lee gained over six shots (+6.196) on the field putting with the model he put in play for the first time earlier this season at the Waste Management Open.
The 28-year-old closed out the first wire-to-wire victory this season on the PGA TOUR (and the first one in 3M Open history) with a 4-under 67 at TPC Twin Cities that included two Sunday eagles on the par-5 6th and 12th holes, each set up by his TSR2 9.0 driver and TSR3 15.0 fairway metal, and then converted with his NEW Scotty Cameron GOLO 6 putter. The rounded compact mallet, with a mid-bend shaft and new dual-milled face technology, is sized in between the previous GOLO 5 and 7 models.
“Biggest thing players like is the round shape combined with a really clean top line,” said Scotty Cameron tour rep Brad Cloke. “What that does is it gives players some freedom on big, breaking putts when they get on some slopey greens on tours. Lee Hodges is one player that mentions that since going to the GOLO 6, that has helped him with breaking putts, helps him kind of see the line, feel the line a little bit better as opposed to getting locked in.”
With the win, Hodges moves to No. 33 in the FedEx Cup Points Standings and is projected to jump to No. 54 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the highest position of his career.

“I changed this putter five or six weeks ago in Korea, and I used this putter four weeks in a row from Portland and here,” she said after her victory at the 2021 Cognizant Founders Cup that October. “I got two wins with this putter and two top-10s, so, yeah, I think I will love this putter.”

I've always been a big believer in that if you're really comfortable looking over it and everything feels square, it's just going to set up for good putting. So that's what I’ve done."

"It feels great, it’s awesome, fun, it was a blast. Just putted out of my mind. Missed a short one on 8 today and yesterday, today for par, but other than that like I pretty much just made everything. It was kind of silly but it was fun, it was a blast. I’ve been working hard on my putting. Didn’t keep my card last year and kind of looked at where I was at and where I needed to improve. I needed to improve on my putting."

WM PHOENIX OPEN
Holding on to a one-shot lead on the 16th hole on Sunday, the winner of the WM Phoenix Open faced a difficult, short-sided pitch from left of the green. Using a Vokey Design wedge, the champion safely pitched his Pro V1 golf ball to 15 feet, 4 inches from the hole. He then rolled in the par save with his Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype to carry a two-shot lead into the final two holes, reclaiming the World No. 1 title with the win.
CHAMPION HOLES KEY PUTTS DOWN THE STRETCH WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER: The winner of the WM Phoenix Open relied on his Pro V1 golf ball and his scoring clubs down the stretch to pull away from the field and finish off his two-shot victory. The champion rolled in an eagle putt on No. 13 from 21 feet, 11 inches with his Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype putter to regain his lead on the back nine. A clutch 15-foot par save on No. 16 extended his advantage with two holes to play.
The now two-time WM Phoenix Open champion first put a Newport 2-style putter in play exactly a year ago at TPC Scottsdale, and he went on to win four times in six starts with the new flatstick. The reigning Masters Champion’s current putter is the exact same model as his putter from last season but with a flatter lie angle. Prior to his switch at last year’s WM Phoenix Open, he had previously been using a Newport-style Super Rat 1 tour prototype and worked with Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Brad Cloke to dial in his setup.
"He just wanted to switch things up a little bit and give himself a slightly different look heading into 2022," said Cloke on the winner’s move to his current model. "Prior to visiting us in the Studio, he’d been messing around with an older Newport 2 Timeless he had at home. He’d added bunch of lead tape to the sole to try and get it to a similar swingweight as his Super Rat. He really liked the profile, but the feel wasn’t exactly where he wanted it, so we went to work on building him a new setup with adjustable weighting."

PGA TOUR (January 28, 2023)
FARMERS INSURANCE OPEN
It’s now five wins and counting for Max Homa with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model in the bag. The run began at the 2021 Genesis Invitational, where Homa, gaming a Phantom X 11.5, became the first player to win with a Phantom X model putter on the PGA TOUR. Four months later, he switched to the Phantom X 5.5 Tour Prototype, which he used to win the last two Fortinet Championships, as well as the Wells Fargo Championship last May.
This week, Homa gained more than 4 ½ strokes on the field putting (+4.595), ranking ninth for the week. He gained 3.46 strokes during the final round alone. Said Homa, on his switch to Phantom X: “I was just struggling with face control with my putter. So I tried a few mallets, ended up going with one of the Phantoms and it just felt like it swung a bit better. It didn’t feel like I needed to work so much with my hands to release the putter. And at that time that’s really what I needed and then I got hooked on them.
"I think you almost don't have to do as much with your hands, so you can just focus on the big muscles. And I feel like, especially with putting, especially when you’re nervous, that’s a huge part of being consistent and having a lot of repetition. I felt like that was something that I was missing. And when I switched to that, I felt like it just became a lot more predictable just because I could take out a variable. Speed control became much easier with the Phantom style. I felt like because of the weight of the head or just the way it swung, I just felt like it was a lot easier to control my putts from 15 to 25 feet. That’s where I’ve typically struggled. That’s definitely the most obvious impact I saw."
"I think we work a lot on alignment with my putting, with getting the face square to the target line and something about the way they set up, I feel like they’re very square. I feel like that’s helped, but I really do think that the speed control has been the main benefactor (to my wins), holing a couple extra 10 to 20 footers. And that typically is mostly speed based, less start line than the closer putts."

WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY CHAMPIONSHIP AT MAYAKOBA
Titleist FPL player Russell Henley cruised to his fourth PGA TOUR title Sunday at Mayakoba, closing in 1-under 70 for a four-shot victory. Henley, gaming a Pro V1x golf ball with a full bag of Titleist equipment that included a Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS Long Neck Prototype, opened the week with consecutive 63’s on his way to setting the tournament scoring record at 23 under par. He made 25 birdies (T1) over the four days in Mexico while playing his first 58 holes bogey-free, getting up and down 15 consecutive times during that stretch.
Henley, 33, led the field in driving accuracy (78.6%) while finishing second in both Scrambling (90.5%) and One Putts (42). Said Henley: “I just feel the consistency throughout my bag is just unbelievable. Every club that I’ve hit, I don’t feel like I’ve ever hit a ball that’s gone way farther than I thought or way shorter. The distance control (with my Pro V1x) is outstanding. The spin around the greens is outstanding.”

SHRINERS CHILDREN'S OPEN
Titleist staff player Joohyung “Tom” Kim earned his second career victory on the PGA TOUR – trusting his Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype putter – becoming the youngest two-time TOUR winner in 90 years. The 20-year-old made 24 birdies and zero bogeys over the 72 holes at TPC Summerlin, with his 24-under total earning him a three-shot victory.
Kim, who moves to No. 15 in the Official World Golf Ranking, shot a final round 5-under 66, his fourth-consecutive round of 67 or better (65-67-62-66). For the week, Kim led the field Scrambling, getting his Pro V1x up-and-down 100% of the time (9 attempts). He also ranked 3rd in Greens in Regulation (87.5%), 3rd in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green (+8.933), 5th in SG: Approach (+5.83) and 3rd in SG: Putting (+6.052). Kim’s victory marks his second win in four starts, a meteoric rise since his breakout 3rd-place finish at the Genesis Scottish Open and his PGA TOUR card-clinching Sunday 63 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July.
KIM ROLLING WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER: Playing a Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype putter, Kim gained more than six (+6.052) strokes on the greens, averaging 1.651 putts per green in regulation.
“I’ve always putted my best with a blade,” Kim said. “I was using a mallet for a couple of years, but I’ve won a lot of my tournaments with a blade, and I wanted to come back, kind of use something natural. Scotty and Paul (Vizanko) really helped me with this piece and it looks great with the mint blue (paintfill). It’s been in the bag for a really long time now.”
PGA TOUR 2022-23 (September 19, 2022)
Seemingly as fast as one season ends another begins. And, with the Fortinet Championship kicking off the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season, Max Homa secured another victory on Sunday, September 18, 2022, with his trusty Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 Tour Prototype. It was Homa’s fourth PGA TOUR title taken with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model in the bag.
The run began at the 2021 Genesis Invitational, where Homa, gaming a Phantom X 11.5, became the first player to win with a Phantom X model putter on the PGA TOUR. Four months later, he switched to the Phantom X 5.5, which he used to win his first Fortinet Championship last September and then the Wells Fargo Championship in May. The same putter was in his hands this week in Napa, where he gained more than four strokes on the field (+4.003/9th).
Said Homa, on his switch to Phantom X: “I was just struggling with face control with my putter. So I tried a few mallets, ended up going with one of the Phantoms and it just felt like it swung a bit better. It didn’t feel like I needed to work so much with my hands to release the putter.
