Scotty Cameron expands Cameron & Crown putter line

Published

on

In August 2016, Scotty Cameron announced a new line of putters called Cameron & Crown that were designed specifically for an underserved group of golfers: those who use a 33-inch putter. The line included five signature Cameron models that were optimized for their shorter lengths, which is about 2 inches shorter than most putters.

“The release was well received,” Scotty Cameron said about the original Cameron & Crown launch, and the putter maker is adding to his short-putter line with four new models that will be available starting June 16 and sell for $379 each.

I’ve always said that the length sets the eyes, and the eyes set the path,” Cameron said. “For those men, women and juniors who need a shorter putter, it gets their eyes in the right position to make a proper stroke while maintaining good posture and balance.”

The four models — Newport, Mallet 1, Futura 5MB, Futura 6M — are a mix of Cameron’s most popular standard-length putter models. The biggest difference, aside from their length and cosmetics, is that they use heavier putter heads that optimize their swing weight, feel and balance at their shorter lengths. They also use a smaller-diameter, grey Scotty Cameron Matador grips.

    Personally, I don’t think he runs the Cameron Brand anymore, he is the face of “Scotty Cameron Putters”, all this space age rocket stuff if run by the FILA marketing department (or who ever owns Cameron brand) who’s only guide is the excel files with the profit margins.

    Make a stainless steel Newport or Newport 2 and many customers will return

    If people are willing to pay $2K+ for basically ping clubs (pxg) then these will sell just fine

    I am afraid but those just don’t fly of the shelf. You will never hear of this line again next year.

    Any of these putters can be ordered in 33″ length normally. The biggest distinction between a regular SC and the Cameron & Crown line is the difference in color, sole plate design, and grip. Both putter lines cost the same amount from what I’ve seen (or at least the 6m which I plan to purchase). I agree that some people only purchase SC putters for status and do very little testing. However, that is not always the case and I will never judge someone just because of the equipment in their bag. I have tested several putters in a variety of lengths, but nothing has been able to knock my Odyssey White Hot Pro #9 out of the bag until I tried the SC 6m in 33″ with the mid-sized matador grip. It sets up easy every time and fits my stroke. Distance control, alignment, and strike location are much better compared to the Odyssey. Can’t say I too much care for the color choices on the C&C line and the fact I can’t order one direct with the mid-sized matador grip is dumb.

    You’d think with a product as quality as Scotty Cameron putters that they wouldn’t need gimmicks like this. So just cutting a putter down 2 inches yourself makes it obsolete because the weighting, balance and feel are thrown off? Give me a break. I’ve cut mine down to 32.5 and I’ve putted better with it ever since.

    Instead of expanding the line why doesn’t he make putters like the m2 in lefthanded?

Published

Cleveland Golf has introduced Cleveland Launcher UHX irons, which incorporate hollow back long irons with cavity back short irons.

The unique approach looks to provide maximum distance and forgiveness in the long irons (4- 7-irons) through lower and deeper weighting in the hollow back construction while focusing on precision and control from the 8-iron to PW with a cavity back design in this addition to the 2020 Cleveland iron lineup.

The new additions also contain a high-strength, HT1770M variable steel face insert in each long iron. According to the company, improved mass distribution in the face insert is designed to deliver higher ball speeds and more distance on each shot.

Speaking on the new Launcher UHX irons, Director of Engineering, Research and Development at Cleveland, Dustin Brekke stated

“This combination of cavity back and utility irons into one set offers the perfect blend of distance and accuracy. A new variable face pattern delivers more distance due to hotter faces with better mass distribution.”

Both the hollow and cavity back irons feature a V-Shaped Sole which is designed to offer both improved speed retention and forgiveness through improved turf interaction. The company’s Tour Zip Grooves and enhanced Laser Milling aim to provide maximum spin on each Launcher UHX short iron.

Arriving in both left and right-handed options, Cleveland’s Launcher UHX Irons officially launch on October 4 and are priced at $799.99 MAP for a seven-piece steel set and $899.99 MAP for a seven-piece graphite set.
