Scotty Cameron Super Select

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: Scotty Cameron is always looking for subtle ways to improve his iconic putters. An example here is how he milled out a bit more room for the heel and toe weights to increase forgiveness on off-center hits. On the face, a new milling pattern achieves the traditional soft feel of the past Studio Select’s deep milling pattern with the consistent roll of mid-milled mallets like the Phantom X. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Naturally, the little things include the shape of a grip or the paint fill in back, but one of the small changes we think is quite big is adding three “Plus” models to the venerable Newport line. The use of aluminum sole plates creates more perimeter weighting for better forgiveness in the same classic footprint. Read more>>

Which One's For Me?
Newport
The traditional heel-toe weighted, cavity blade, it uses a plumber's neck with a full shaft of offset for players who have a straight to arcing stroke.
Newport Plus
Occupying a similar but slightly wider footprint than the Newport, an aluminum sole plate increases the mass available to push to the heel and toe for increased forgiveness. The plumbers' neck hosel best fits those with a straight to slight arc in their stroke.
Newport 2
Similar in architecture to the Newport, it features a flatter topline and more angular bumpers at the heel and toe. Its plumber's neck is best for those with a straight to slightly arcing stroke.
Newport 2 Plus
Similar to the overall shape and angles of the Newport 2 but slightly wider, it uses an aluminum sole plate to save more mass that is further reallocated to the heel and toe for more forgiveness. Its plumber's neck hosel matches up best with straight to slightly arcing strokes.
Newport 2.5 Plus
Similar to the shaping of the Newport 2 but wider and featuring a weight-saving aluminum soleplate for increased forgiveness, it uses a shorter, slant neck that best matches up with more of an arcing stroke.
Fastback 1.5
This model features similar heel-toe weighting but extends the flange slightly for a more rounded blade look. The short slant neck
Squareback 2
Built with similar shaping and angles as the Newport 2 but featuring an overall larger profile and wider flange, it adds the weight-saving aluminum soleplate for improved off-center hit forgiveness. It uses a plumber's neck for straight to slightly arcing strokes.
Del Mar
A smaller, rounded heel-toe weighted blade, its heel shaft matches best with more arcing strokes.

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper
"The Newport 2.5 Plus is as consistent as you can get with a putter. Still performs really well, even on mishits. Good roll."
Handicap, +4
Medium-Handicapper
“Such a beautiful putter. This is one you want to maintain. Even when I strike the ball slightly off center, it rolls pure.”
Handicap, 9
High-Handicapper
"A pleasing simplicity, but seems to utilize higher end materials than its competition. A deep throaty sound with a lot of touch. Shines at launching the ball consistently on the intended line."
Handicap, 12
