The 'crème de la creme' of golf equipment, a classy offering from a leading brand. In terms of feel, sound, weighting technology and roll off the putter face it's full marks. If you're serious about the game and are looking for the best in putters then look no further - this is the 1st prize. But be prepared to pay top dollar!
Pros and Cons
- Soft, but solid feel that provides exceptional feedback on putts hit out the center of the clubface.
- Heel-Toe weight technology that is matched to the length of putter providing optimal potential for the best strike and roll possible
- Efficient speed and roll off the putter face
- Only one model is offered in a left handed option, which is a pity
- It’s pricey – no messing around on that front, but if you are serious about the game and can afford it then it’s worth it
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!?
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.
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 putter 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.
Scotty Cameron Select putters feature sleek, performance-oriented models with new technology, shapes and configurations. The new Select line blends precision milled Scotty Cameron craftsmanship with multi-material technology proven at the highest levels of competition. Video Length – 01:28
