Putter: Scotty Cameron Masterful tour prototype
PGA TOUR | ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP
The 2015 PLAYERS Champion earned his second top-6 finish in his last four starts on the PGA TOUR since switching to his new Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Plus-style putter.
- The 5-time PGA TOUR winner, who finished the week tied for second, one shot back of the winner, first gamed his new Scotty Cameron TourType Special Select Timeless Plus tour prototype model at the FedEx St. Jude Championship.
- It was on that Tuesday at TPC Southwind when Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Drew Page showed him the putter for the first time.
- “Hit a putt, basically loved it from the first putt, so that went in the bag that week and hasn’t come out,” he said. “That’s been good.”
- The putter features the same head and neck configuration as the recent limited release Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 Plus model, featuring a slightly wider profile than the Newport 2’s standard face-to-flange blade dimensions.
- At the Fortinet Championship, he gained +1.532 strokes putting on his way to a T6 finish.
- This week in Japan (no Shotlink stats available), he finished fourth in Putts per GIR (1.655).
