2014 Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Putters Review

2014 Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Putters Review

New Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Putters Review: $349.99 to $1,699.99 for the Circle T Studio Select

Putters are like baseball closers. They are temperamental, prone to wild swings of fortune, and it’s easy to lose faith in them after a run of bad luck.

When you find a good one, it feels more precious than gold. When the magic runs dry, the scorn you can feel for them can rival that of your most hated rival. Good putting is all about confidence, and in order to be successful you have to wield a blade that inspires that confidence in you.

You need a putter that will allow you to stand over that double-breaking 10-footer for par standing between you and a halve with seven holes worth of carryover skins on the line and know with certainty that you’re going to knock it in — ideally followed by a Jordanesque shrug.

A beloved putter is not just a weapon in your arsenal; it is a demoralizing, backbreaking bunker-buster,
leaving a trail of broken hearts and empty wallets behind it.

 

Titleist’s Scotty Cameron line of putters has a long history of being this type of trusted ally, relied upon
by professionals and amateurs alike to make crucial putts and go as low as possible. The 2014 line of
Cameron Select Putters continues this trend of excellence, made from the highest quality materials and
with the highest degree of craftsmanship, in order to meet the high standards of the quality players that
wield it.

I spent time with four versions of the Cameron Select series; the Newport, the Newport 2.0, the Newport
2.5 and the FastBack models. Each of these meet the established high standards of design and performance set by Cameron himself.

This is the first Cameron putter I’ve tried in some time that felt like it had peers instead of being a class above everything else. This is slightly disappointing, but not so much that it tarnishes the high quality of the club itself.

All possess precision-milled faces designed to provide a softer feel and better touch. All are carefully head-weighted to match the specified shaft length, with the option to modify according to player preference. All are built with an angled toe aid Titleist claims resists a common player tendency to pull putts by raising the toe at setup.

My favorite of the line was the Newport 2.0, whose weight felt most comfortable to me and whose look inspired the most confidence for me. I found it the easiest to align and the option that rolled truest for me, providing great feel and touch immediately.

The FastBack design was my least favorite, offering a slightly heavier weight and a rounded look at address that just didn’t fit my eye.

This is all a matter of taste, however, as is the case with all putters. You’ll want to get your hands on each model and see which one best catches your imagination before committing to a particular putter. There’s not a bad option among the series, however, as all are made with such high quality and care that any of the Cameron Select series putters will do a fine job of helping you get the ball in the hole.

I will say that I didn’t get the sense of excitement out of the Select series that I normally get when trying out a new Cameron model of putter. It’s a hard thing to put my finger on, but this Cameron Select series seems to be missing some of that unique Cameron magic offered by previous models. The look is still very classic and traditionally attractive, but in a way that seems common to high-end putters of recent years.
