Scotty Cameron is one of the most well-known brands in the name of golf. Many PGA Tour players keep a “Scotty” in their bag and even more wins can be attributed to the high-quality and performance-driven putters.
That list may very well grow with today’s release of the new Scotty Cameron Futura X5 and X5R models.
The new models aim to provide golfers added stability through improved perimeter weighting and a solid, forgiving feel. The vertical and horizontal alignment aids help get them started on the right line.
The Scotty Cameron Futura X5 model is angled in the rear; the X5R is more rounded. Both models feature a Matador Red Midsize grip that pairs well with the face-balanced design of the putters.
“We’re finding that mallets make up as much as 50 percent of the putters used on the PGA Tour each week – and for good reason,” Cameron said in a Titleist release. “The size of the head is larger so it looks and feels more stable on the ground. The bigger the head, the more lines you can add for alignment. We worked with many players on tour and in the Putter Studio during the development of X5 and they all told us the same thing: It adds confidence.”
There’s also a dual balance model that combines the X5 head with Dual Balance technology, which helps provide stability throughout the stroke.
“The X5 basically started from the original Futura 10 years ago. We’ve learned from where we’ve been, taken parts of the past and moved it toward the future with performance, feel and sound,” Cameron said. “But the concept has always been about moving the weight back and out.”
The Futura X head design was the direct result of Cameron’s extensive work with Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott, who used a prototype version of the putter in winning the 2013 Masters. Scott, who has been using Cameron putters for more than a decade, calls his Futura X “the most stable putter I have ever played.”
The Scotty Cameron Futura X5 putters will be available Oct. 31 and retail starting at $349. The X5 Dual Balance will retail at $399.
