Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Detailed Review

Design & Appearance

The trademark red dots are still prevalent in the Scotty Cameron Select range and this time around the three that are centered behind the putter face are paired up with a red weight on either side of the sole too.

The insert now has a ‘face sole pop through technology’ as Titleist like to call it and that is quite a standout where it looks as though the insert goes right under the actual putter face as well.

To be honest that doesn’t make a whole lot of difference, just something that others aren’t or haven’t done and is more of an aesthetic feature only.

The Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 are fantastic in terms of aesthetics and from the aerial point of view they just have a clean thickish top-line, slightly rounded, misty finish that are a pleasure to look at. The balance of the models however are chunkier and not as attractive.

The enhanced alignment options are also a bit of a turn-off, but they do the job psychologically in terms of improving performance.

At the end of the day a putter is not all about looks, it’s about the performance and if it helps you record fewer putts each round then who really cares!?

Build Quality

Scotty Cameron has opted for an integrated vibration dampening system that is very effective.

There is a reason for these putters being the price they are – they have gone through extensive testing and fine tuning in order to offer the best possible tool to help you improve your game.

From the weighting to the multi-material technology to the enhanced alignment options to the grip that provides tour proven performance and feedback – Scotty Cameron Select putters are the caviar of golf equipment.

Control & Feel

The integrated vibration dampening system provides a soft, but solid feel to the putter head and that is exactly how a putter should feel. You don’t want that ‘chewing gum’ feel on a putt or that ‘tingy hardish’ feel either so Titleist have done a great job on this front. The mid-milled face is perfect and feedback is beautiful, primarily due to the super soft Matador midsize putting grip.

Don’t you just love the feel of a brand new putter in your hands that feels unbelievable? Well that we can almost guarantee is primarily because of the grip – think about it next time you get your hands on a new putter.

Performance

The heel-toe weighting technology is unreal. It has somehow been matched exactly to the putter’s length in order to produce the optimal performance.

There is great speed and roll off the putter face – almost a ‘pop’, but not in a negative way if you know what I mean.

The weighting technology also aids stability through the stroke brilliantly and stays square to the target line for that split second longer in order to keep the ball on line and on target.

With the putter heads having a healthy weight to them it also helps in distance control on longer putts as well, so if you battle in that area then my suggestion is either the Newport M1 Mallet or M2 Mallet.

Value for Money

Ok here is where we get to business.

The Scotty Cameron Select range starts at $410.00. Yip, you read that correctly, don’t worry your eyes aren’t going! One of (if not) the most expensive putters on the market, BUT it is a classic modernized piece that will get you licking your lips walking up to any green – even if putting for a triple bogey!

If you’re a once-a-month golfer and just enjoy your golf then this probably isn’t for you. However, if you are serious about golf and are in need of shaving a few shots off your game via putting then look no further, this has got your name on it.

Mike fell in love with the game from a very early age – a passion that hasn’t diminished ever since. He earned provincial colors throughout his junior years, but by the time he reached Varsity, the realization set in (thanks largely to some cold ales) that it was time to favor the pen rather than his clubs. He now writes for GA along with a few other sources.

  1. Great review guys! Agree with almost all of the stuff you have said. I’ve had my Scotty Cameron for about a year now and it has definitely had a positive impact on my shot game. In general I just feel a lot more confident over putts. Especially anything inside 4 foot. The only real downside to this putter in my opinion is the price tag, but if you can afford it and then you will be hard pressed to find a better putter on the market.

  2. My comments are specifically for the Newport 2.5. The attraction for me started with the setup, look and feel. I played with an old Santa Fe gun metal putter for 18 years. The putter came to me for free and after finally having it restored 2 years ago, I decided to hang it up. The gun metal finish is extremely susceptible to fertilizers and moisture. I was tired of constantly cleaning and wanted to preserve the finish. The Newport 2.5 had the same setup as my Santa Fe which made the transition easy but I was shocked with how forgiving it is. My only complaint would be price.

  3. My comments are on Select Newport 2 Mallet. More squared to other mallets, and this helped me to align better. It feels awsome, and the control is extraordinary.
    It is true that the price is high, but it pays in the final putting numbers.
