Scotty Cameron Special Select
WHAT IT DOES: When Scotty Cameron, who has been at this putter thing for more than three decades, decided to take his most famous models back to their roots, he clearly knew where he was going. That classic milled 303 stainless-steel construction produces the consistent impact, feel and response preferred by his ever-expanding stable of tour players. Their input also shaped his subtle changes, like thinner, flatter toplines, a slightly shorter plumber’s neck and a new small-slant option that caters to strokes with maximum arc.
WHY WE LIKE IT: This is a museum piece, sure, but Cameron crafts a seamless injection of technology, too. Those hefty tungsten heel and toe sole weights add meaningful stability to expand the sweet spot.

"The finish is just the right mix of shiny and pearly. Super thin but packs a punch to it. Don't have to think too much with this club, it just delivers."
"Just obviously a thing of beauty—the finish, the way it’s milled is a classic look. and this is done as well as it can be. Beautifully balanced. Really promoted kind of a slight curve or arc stroke, which matched with the stroke I normally use."
“When you think of a blade putter, this is exactly how you want it to look, and it somehow has a tendency to square itself at the ball.”
