2014 Titleist Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balanced Putter Review

2014 Titleist Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balanced Putter Review

2014 Titleist Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balanced Putter: $349.99

It appears as if  Scotty Cameron and Titleist are prepared to ride the Adam Scott train for another year.  They have released a new version of the putter Scott used to win the Masters in 2013. It is called the Titleist Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balanced Putter.  

The main goal of this putter is for the golfer to gain supreme confidence in their stroke because of the high MOI (moment of inertia) and perimeter weighting. These two features will allow a player of any level to have a consistent putting stroke. The putter has a mallet style head with a “frozen titanium” finish to help reduce glare. This putter is comparable to the new TaylorMade Daddy Long Legs putter. There is also a 50-gram weight in the butt of the shaft. The putter comes stock at 38 inches, too.

It would not surprise me if this was the best-selling Cameron putter in 2014. I would definitely consider adding this club to my bag.

Look (4.5 out of 5 stars)

I really like the color of this putter. The “frozen-titanium” finish really does help reduce glare and it has a very sharp look next to the cherry accents on the sole. I prefer the look of blade style putters to mallet style, but this putter actually had a nice appearance to me at address.  

With my natural putting stance and grip, the putter was very square with the ball. The most appealing part of the putter in my eye was the grip. The 15-inch red grip just pops off the shaft.

Performance (5 out of 5 stars)

I was very pleased with the overall performance of this putter. My stroke was very fluid and consistent with the last each time. I was not able to test this putter on real grass or with any slope, but I was able to hit the ball straight almost 100 percent of the time. 

Even when I would intentionally hit the ball off the center of the face, the weighting of the head was able to keep the ball on the correct line. The putter also made a very pure sound at impact. There was consistency in the sound throughout the face, and it was very soft.

I also had the chance to roll a few putts with the new TaylorMade Daddy Long Legs putter at the PGA Merchandise Show last month in Orlando, Fla., and the two putters seemed very comparable to me. However, I was able to get more consistent results on off-center hits with the Titleist Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance Putter. 

This putter definitely delivers on the goal of creating a consistent, fluid stroke time after time with the counter-balance weighting and large clubhead.

Final Thoughts

This putter delivered the best performance results from any putter I tested at the PGA Show. It felt and looked good at address, and more importantly, I was able to hit straight putt after straight putt with it.

It would not surprise me if this was the best-selling Scotty Cameron putter in 2014. I would definitely consider adding this club to my bag. It looks like I may finally make the switch from blade style to mallet style.
