Forum Thread of the Day: “Scotty Cameron Prototype Mallet Putters”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases the new Scotty Cameron Prototype Mallet Putters that have been on display at this week’s Sony Open. The thread was started by easyyy after our forum moderator Pitbull808 sourced the photos, and while the majority of our members appear less than impressed, some are keen on the new designs.

Check out all of the photos of the new designs in our forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Putterdough91: “Uhhh maybe Scotty designed these over the Christmas holidays after a few too many drinks.. “
  • sbjinx: “It looks like the more futuristic version of the spyder and spyder mini. I think these look way better than the Newport with wings abomination.”
  • ProStryker: “I’m a big Scotty fan, but these are horrible. His stuff seems to keep declining. Everyone is clamoring for a solid head like the old Scotty’s, and he keeps going far in the opposite direction. Disappointing.”
  • collindm1: “I honestly don’t think they look that bad.  I’ll reserve judgment until I roll them.  These are prototypes; he’s allowed to try things that some of the guys on tour might use and put in play.  He does consult with tour pros on occasion.  Hence, Jimmy Walker ditching the T Lamb blade and putting one of these Scotty’s in play.”

    Wow, nice PXG Operator/Spyder. Another dud for the collection.

    An improvement in looks. Is the slant a little less pronounced or is it just the angle?
    Would look better with longer wings like the traditional Spiders but I like the alignment lines. Been debating on getting a Spider and might have to give this one a go.

    A YES! Milly and TM Spider love child…. This is the worst putter SC has made to date. Who approved this to go to market?

    Still with the heel shaft? Call me when you put the shaft in the center, where it belongs.

    Hitting a driver is macho….. putting a putter is wimpy ….. anybody who ‘lovss’ a putter is exposing their gonadal predilections.

    Don’t worry I’m sure they will keep making Newport classic putters that you have been missing 3 footers for the last 20 years with.

    Beautiful, breathtaking, big putter statement that is not an Anser knockoff. These Scotty’s will sell like hotcakes because they are clean functional designs that will make golfers proud to putt. I love that yellow indicia top lines on the black background. One suggestion, the yellow line should have been extended down the putter face to show the sweet spot. Cost?

    btw these are not prototypes. There is no way he is going to change anything within a month before these all go to market. These things are being milled and put together in China as we speak.

    Looks like Christopher Nolan and Robert Bettinardi went drinking and made a putter together.

    Lost massive amounts of business to TM and EVNROLL, eh, Scotty?
    That’s what happens when you flog putters to the public that even the Tour pros don’t use.
    So now you decide to copy some of the others designs (yet again) to try to catch up and profit
    Pathetic

    Why do they still let Adam Scott dictate putter designs? Dude hasn’t made a putt since the Bush administration.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What’s your bunker play set up?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Tmiller72 who asks fellow members to share their bunker play set up. From loft and bounce, as well as discussing different scenarios, our members share and discuss their philosophy and different strategies for when they are in the sand.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • ChipNRun: “I use my 54/12 SW. I try to keep my weight even on both feet, so I don’t dig in too much. Also…If I need to get it up really quick, it’s the 60/10. If the sand is wet and hard-packed, I’ll pick it off the top with a PW.”
  • Evilduckhunter: “Short ones or short sided is the TM Hi Toe 60 10 with four way sole. Longer shots it’s the Cleveland RTX4 56 10 full grind. I did give the 56 some heel and trailing edge relief.”
  • Joelsim: “Mack Daddy 4 58* X Grind, weight 75% on front foot, clubface very open, full swing with lots of speed. For longer bunker shots, i.e. over 20 feet, I use a lower lofted club, which one depends on the distance. Same full stroke every time.”
  • PlayfromtheBrain: “Vokey 60.06 K-grind (low bounce). I enjoy using it anywhere from about 90 yards and in, though the sand is where the grind really proves its worth. The wide sole pretty much guarantees a decent or better out for me. It’s great around the green, and I have no problem opening it up for different shots. Definitely has inspired confidence. This type of grind demands near perfect contact, but there isn’t a more versatile wedge than one with a wide sole and lower bounce.
