  1. I was at a demo day over the weekend and saw a Scotty Cameron Golo Mid Adjustable. Does anyone know when the adjustable model will be on the market?

    Thanks

    It is my understanding the adjustable GoLo Mid and Big Sur Long will be for fitting use only.

    Kurt, 

    No specifics have been identified yet on when or if there will be a USGA conforming Scotty Cameron adjustable on the market.  As of right now, those current adjustable mid/longs are just fitting tools.  Stay tuned to Team Titleist for exclusive product releases!

  4. so does that mean that definitively the adjustable fitter is not conforming if one wanted to play with one in a tournament? You can play with a demo driver.....so many models of drivers are adjustable as well?......todd

    This is interesting because I was sold one of these Scotty Cameron Golo Mid "Adjustable" putters by a Pro Shop & I even went back & checked it confirmed when I read the label & to make matters worse I have played in matches with it after checking it did confirm. What should I now do ? Should I go back to the Pro Shop I brought it from & try to get a refund or can I contact Titleist UK & will they help me. I don't use it all the time, I switch between it & my regular size Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

    Thanks Chris 

  6. Is there anyone from Team Titleist still on/monitoring this dated discussion?

    Pls note I was also sold a Big Sur adjustable putter as "conforming" by a Pro-shop.

     

    However, my main issue is the adjustment device itself. Is there a secret to adjusting it and making it hold in desired adjustment position (i.e., not slip)? I've tightened aligned/centered  the "l" line within the sleeve hole, as well as tightened -aligned the "o" circle  within the sleeve hole, however, the height sometimes (often) shifts (i.e. slips) i.e., while  in the bag, transporting and (even worse) sometimes while putting.... Can you pls advise a sure-hold  "fix"   Thanks   AJ

    Jai, 

    That adjustable model was only intended for fitting purposes and is not a conforming putter.  Since there isn't a tool to help lock the putter in place, that coupling is the only thing that will hold the putter in a certain length.

    What if you drill a threaded hole thru the shaft and screw in a allen set screw? This would make the shaft stay locked into place unless you you unscrewed the allen screw. Would this make it conforming?
  10. From William S: Bottom line up front: If you do apply the setscrew to the friction mechanism you will still need to submit your putter for conformance evaluation.

    Mr. Sands,

    I’m following up because I don’t believe that you decided to submit a sample of your putter to us (I don’t recall it being submitted and I couldn’t locate a submission from you in our database).

    The potential concern with your mechanism is that the set screw and be tightened such that the extended shaft could be moved up or down with reasonable force, but that the putter would still be usable (i.e., the shaft would not be so loose that it would collapse). That is a general concern that the governing bodies have with friction fit mechanisms.

    From an email on 29 May 2017 from Carter Rich, USGA:

    Dear Mr. Sands,

    Yes. We have evaluated the reverse clamping system provided on certain png putters and have determined that it conforms to the Rules of Golf. There is a caveat regarding the differential between the diameter of the grip at the tip end and the diameter of the mechanism (which must not be greater than 1” in diameter). As a result, png manufactures a special grip for the mechanism. If you were to install a grip that is larger in cross-section than the mechanism and is essentially touching the mechanism, that would be permitted as well.
