First Look: Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance putter

Posted at 3:15 PM by Coleman McDowell

Scotty

 

The putter Adam Scott used to win the 2013 Masters has gained a little weight.

The Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance mallet provides more stability through the stroke than the Futura X due to its counterbalance design.

"We’ve found, through our last 20 years of high speed video research with tour players, that the best putters in the world point the butt of their putter at their midsection throughout the putting stroke,” Scotty Cameron said. “From address, to the backstroke, at impact and through the forward stroke — the butt of the putter remains pointed to about the same 1- or 2-inch circle in their belly area."

It follows that a 50-gram weight is inserted in the butt of the putter shaft to assist in keeping it pointed at a player’s midsection throughout the stroke. Additionally, the clubhead is 50 grams heavier than the Futura X at 400 grams. The milled aluminum head features four stainless steel weights: two 20-gram weights on the rear balance bar and two 10-gram sole weights close to the face. The extra mass keeps players’ hands steady at takeaway, discourages quick hands during the stroke and boosts head stability through impact.

The standard length of the Dual Balance checks in at 38”, three inches longer than a standard putter. Adding three inches to the length allows for more counterbalance effect which leads to a higher MOI. A slightly thicker 15-inch grip comes standard with an outline of suggested hand-placement at 35 inches. Of course, the longer grip allows for multiple hand placement options. The Futura X Dual Balance is available now so you can pick one up in time for the weekend. Price: $399.

Rickie Fowler talks about his switch to Cobra GOLF.com

Posted at 7:43 PM by David Dusek

SAN DIEGO — Rickie Fowler was at Torrey Pines Golf Course on Tuesday to help EA Sports promote the March release of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour '13 video game. Fowler joins Tiger on the game's box this year.

After he was done answering questions about the game, I had a chance to chat with Rickie about his recent equipment changes. Just a day before, Cobra Golf announced that Fowler had officially become a member of the company's tour staff, released several photos of the 23-year-old with his new Cobra gear and showcased a 30-second commercial featuring Fowler hitting a new Cobra AMP driver and crushing oranges.

Fowler has been wearing Puma footwear and apparel for a while, so in March 2010, when Acushnet sold Cobra Golf to Puma, some people, including myself, wondered if Fowler might leave Titleist and strike a deal with Cobra and become a "head to toe" player for a single company.

Fowler sent me, and a few others, the following tweet, in response:

But Fowler's contract with Titleist ended at the end of 2011. While he will still be playing Titleist's Pro V1 X golf ball, a Scotty Cameron putter and Vokey wedges (at least in the foreseeable future), plus an Adams hybrid, the rest of Fowler's gear is all Cobra now. Click here to see a gallery of Fowler's equipment.

Rickie-Fowler-Cobra-6Iron_640

"I really started working on things during the last few weeks of December," he told me. "I think they did a very good job preparing themselves and getting everything ready for testing. They did a very good job with the irons getting them similar and comparable to the ones I was playing before [Titleist 712 MB] so there really wasn't a big transition there. They felt the same, flew the same ... so it was basically like putting a new set of what I already had in the bag."

Fowler says that he hits his new irons about the same distance he hit his Titleists, maybe just a touch farther. "Some of the guys back home at Medalist [Fowler's home course in Hobe Sound, Fla.] were complaining about some of the spots where I was hitting it, but I wouldn't say it was anything mind blowing." 

Fowler says replacing his Titleist 910D3 driver was a little more challenging, but he's comfortable with his new AMP driver.

"Obviously they tried to put together something that was as close to the specs as before," he said. "The shaft, weight, the swing weight ... everything like that. It just took a few drivers to get the right setup with the loft and everything, and I've actually been hitting it really well, so hopefully this week I'll be able to pump a few out there."

Below is a complete list of the clubs currently in Fowler's bag at Torrey Pines and you can click here to see a gallery of Fowler's gear:

DRIVER: Cobra AMP (8.5°) with a Mitsubishi Diamana White Board 73X shaft
FAIRWAY WOOD: Cobra AMP (13°) with a Mitsubishi Diamana 'Ahina 80X shaft
HYBRID: Adams Idea Pro Black (20°) with a Matrix OZIK HM2 Hybrid shaft
IRONS: Cobra AMP Pro Prototype Blades (4-9) with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shafts
WEDGE: Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled (48°, 50°, 55°, 59°) with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shafts

Scotty Cameron revamps his California putter line

Posted at 9:47 PM by David Dusek

The Scotty Cameron California putters first appeared on the practice green at the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine. Their classically shaped heads were far from radical, but they did came with a unique gold finish that Cameron called, "Honey Dipped."

In the latest generation of Cameron's California putter family, that finish has been washed away and replaced with a more conventional, non-reflective chrome look called, "Sea Mist."

ScottyCameronCaliMonterey_600

A second noticeable difference in the new model can be seen in the face. The original California putters had a smooth face, but the new California line features deeper milling that produces a noticeably lower and deeper sound at impact. Cameron says that the deeper milling has no effect on the ball and doesn't make it roll any differently.

Scotty Cameron California line has five different models:

• Monterey: A classic heel-toe weighted blade with an plumber's neck and one sight line. (above)

• Monterey 1.5: An identical head to the Monterey, but featuring a smaller, curved neck.

• Del Mar: A heel-shafted mid-mallet with a slightly enlarged toe section and one sight line.

• Fastback: A beefy blade that is slightly shorter from heel to toe and comes with a rounded back flange and three sight lines.

• Sonoma: A compact, D-shaded mid-mallet that features a round neck that curves directly into the head.

Like the Studio Design putters, the California putters now feature three red dots (which “Cameron crazies” refer to as Cherry Bombs) on the back. Each putter is milled from a block of 303 stainless steel and available in 33-, 34- and 35-inch versions. To ensure that the head weight is optimized to the putter's length, weight screws are affixed into the sole of each club at the factory. Golfers cannot adjust the weights, but they can order heavier versions of some models.

Shape eyes will also notice that Cameron has decided to build the California putters using a step-less shaft and positioned the shaft band in a position so it is hidden from view in the address position. These adjustments were made to reduce visual distraction and let your eyes naturally focus on the ball.

The black pistol-style grip was inspired by handle of a hammer that Cameron picked up at a hardware store. Not only is it larger than the pencil-thin Cameron grips of old, the budging area at the top naturally engages the pinky and ring finger of your top hand, encouraging your wrist to stay firm throughout your stroke.

All of this style doesn't come cheap. Look for Scotty Cameron California putters to retail for $375 in pro shops starting in November. To help you get over the sticker shock, remind yourself that you'll be using a putter made by the same guy who creates flatsticks for Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Nick Watney and lots of other PGA Tour stars.
