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?

WRX Spotlight: Argolf Mordred putter

Published

on

Product: Argolf Mordred putter

Pitch: From Argolf: “…each ARGOLF putter is named after an Arthurian legend.”

“Mordred was known as a notorious traitor who fought King Arthur at the Battle of Camlann, where he was killed, and Arthur was fatally wounded. The images depicting Mordred are reflected in the winged design of the putter which aids in stabilization and alignment, as well as its coloring.”

“With a lower center of gravity that surpasses all mallet putters in the ARGOLF collection, Mordred boasts one of the highest MOIs available on the market. Precisely milled from a solid block of aeronautical-grade 7175 Aluminum, Mordred appeals to the eye with its clean and sophisticated look. Using the most advanced technology, Mordred is shaped through a 5-axis milling process that differentiates itself from its competitors in design and performance due to its aerodynamic features.”

Our take on the Argolf Mordred putter

When you are dreaming of your next high-end milled putter, Argolf might not be the first name that pops into your head. Argolf is a French company founded in 2010 by a couple of aeronautical industrialists and a golf professional. By combining the expertise from both sites, Argolf has created a line of milled putters that not only look like art but with performance that rivals more well-known brands.

Mordred is a large mallet that boasts a very low center of gravity and super high MOI. Milled out of a solid block of aerospace-grade 7175 aluminum, the design is influenced by the aerodynamic lines from F1 race cars. The face features Argolf’s C-Claw technology that produces a more consistent forward roll without skidding. The Mordred is finished off with a single orange site line, a black PVD shaft, and a Pure midsize grip.

When you open the box, you are greeted with a nice grey and orange head cover that feels high quality and durable. Headcover removed, you will say hello to one of the larger mallet putters you have ever tried. The finish is a matte dark gray that eliminates glare and contrasts well with the orange paint fill. Traditionally high end milled putters have milling lines on most of the head and ARGOLF hid most of those in this head. The milling lines and marks are still visible on the rounded sections, but any flat surface is perfectly smooth. From what I have been told by machinists, it is more expensive to remove those lines and marks.

Any mallet putter that boasts high MOI, the style is going to be love or hate. At first, I was taken back by how busy the Mordred is, but out on the course, those flowing lines melt away. Not once was I distracted by them while lining up a putt. Size is going to take some getting used to as it just frames the ball different than any other mallet I have tried.

Feel and sound is where Mordred really shines. I have putted with aluminum putters before, and depending on the design they can have a different sound or feel. The C-Claw face really offers a softer feel and sound with just a slight click at impact. Not as crisp as carbon steel, just a little more muted and I enjoyed the sounds and feel with the Titleist AVX.

ARGOLF’s C-Claw technology does what it says and gets the ball rolling with zero skidding, even on long uphill putts. Putting side-by-side with a standard faced putter you could easily see tell the difference in the first foot of roll. Some face technologies can cause issues with distance control, but every putt rolled out to the expected distance. Compared to a traditionally milled face the Mordred will roll a fraction farther, but something that is easy to adjust to with a handful of putts on the practice green.

Shots off center go almost exactly where you aimed; the toe miss leaks just a touch right. Putts struck on the heel go straight and lose minimal distance while feeling still very solid. Toe strikes leak a hair right and are met with a small amount of vibration letting you know you missed the center of the putter.

Overall, Argolf’s Mordred putter is a great option for someone who is looking for a super forgiving putter. A minor complaint is no grip options for a putter at this price. I like a standard size, firmer grip and there are no other options to select from. The other thing that could become an issue is how well the finish holds up. I always use the headcover when I am not using my putter and the finish still has a few minor marks on it. If you are anti-headcover you might notice faster wear. Those are pretty small issues, and I think that ARGOLF has a really solid putter here.
