Select putters feature seven sleek, performance-oriented models with new technology, shapes and configurations to satisfy the variety of strokes, styles and preferences of golfers at every level of the game. Central to the new Select line is Scotty’s concept of three unique multi-material constructions matched to each putter. This face inlay technology produces responsive feel and feedback that golfers have described as "soft but solid."
"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 aluminum inlays for the mid-mallet models. The result is a better look, a better sound, a better feel and a better product."
The new face inlays – which wrap around the sole and disappear from the player's view at address, as opposed to a traditional face insert that occupies only a specific center section of the face – are presented in three unique setups to complement each putter shape and size:
- Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 models, the next generation of Scotty's longtime tour favorites, 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 provides golfers with responsive feel and feedback at impact.
- Select Newport 2 Notchback – a slightly larger, angular modern blade with a notched flange – features a sole-to-topline 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay anodized in gunmetal gray. The lightweight aluminum inlay, bonded to the stainless steel body with vibration dampening material, enhances sound and feel while moving more weight from stainless steel to the perimeter for improved MOI and stability.
- Select Newport M1 Mallet and Newport M2 Mallet combine a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay with Scotty’s face-sole pop-through technology. The face-sole is a single piece of lightweight aluminum 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 aluminum 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."
