Teryllium is back: Scotty Cameron T22 putters launch

Published

on

There are only a few putters I can think of that can create a true emotional reaction from most people—either because of an event it was attached to, a great round, or a player. One putter that unequivocally does this is the Scotty Cameron Teryllium series, and 22 years after the original—it’s back!

I’ll let you catch your breath.

For this iconic release let’s let the man himself take over for a moment.

From Mr. Cameron: “There’s nothing quite like the feel of Teryllium. It’s the number one material request I get from players. And, as we’ve seen multiple majors won over the past few seasons with a Teryllium-inserted putter, it’s a great time to celebrate this legendary design.”  Scotty can’t say it (as the player in question isn’t a paid staffer) but I can: It’s Brooks Koepka who’s been pulling in major championships with a Teryllium putter.

So where do we begin.

Like all modern Scotty Cameron Putters, the T22 series will be precision milled in the United States. The bodies will be made from 303 stainless steel. This differs from the originals that were carbon steel and needed constant care to prevent rust spots or pitting—a maintenance nightmare for some owners in damp conditions that gamed them.

To maintain the aesthetic of the original, the new T22 series will have what Cameron is calling a tactical matte black finish (same great look but much easier to care for). Or, to use another quote from Scotty, “the new T22 is meant to be gamed.”

Another update to the original is the T22’s Teryllium insert has been given an improved elastomer vibration dampening membrane.  Thanks to years of building and producing multi-piece putters, along with testing and feedback from the worlds best players, Cameron has brought that cumulative knowledge to this new series to provide golfers with uncompromised feel.

Now don’t think for a second that even with all of these new touches and features, history will be ignored. The new Teryllium series will still have the very distinct and instantly recognizable elastomer-filled dots in the cavity. Honestly, even from a distance, it’s extremely easy to identify a Teryllium, which is part of the beauty of it.

Like anything well designed (NOT just golf clubs), objects that are considered the most iconic or culturally relevant only take a second to be identified. Think a glass bottle of Coke, the headlights on a Porsche, the lines of 60s muscle cars—always slightly evolving but never straying from the lineage. Don’t forget the cover either

Scotty Cameron T22 models, extras, and availability

Available in golf shops beginning Aug. 16 and for pre-order soon.

Teryllium T22 putters will be available in 3 models:

  • Newport
  • Newport 2
  • Fastback 1.5

Like the Select line, all three models will have adjustable stability heel-toe weighting in standard configurations and also for custom orders.

    Funny how many people trash the putter, like they are so good at the game that they have the intelligible insight to tell Scotty how he should and shouldn’t make putters. Laughable folks. To those of you who don’t want one, good for you, you won’t be able to get one anyway (except for eBay maybe, if you have a grand to spend). Let’s all stop letting our mouths outrun our brains for a minute and think about the fact that a bunch of people on this comment thread are downing a putter that has won more professional tournaments than their cumulative scramble records. ????. The putter is gorgeous…get over it.

    Missing something….this material is so fantastic and in such demand that it hasn’t really been marketed for many years. Huh!

    I want the button backs, Scotty! Like the one Koepka has but in a notchback. Along with the button colors I can customize. These TeI3 putters are so hard to maintain rust free. And I have Trypophobia…

    Scotty make me one of each on Lefty…..please.

    So the great Copycat has run out of things to copy so he is reinstating the Terrilium face. Looks like I have a fortune with my 2 or maybe three old terrarium insert putters in Left Handed.. And I see they are already lining up to spend 500 Bucks for them, lol, what a joke.

      At 6 Bills a pop and you are starving for it along with most of Canadas Lefty ? I have some property on a Mountain side for sale, how about it? I will sell you a lefty TM with the same insert for half that price. Thank you

    Back just a couple more years…best putters Cameron ever made (IMNSHO) were the clean, simple Gun Blues and OIL CANS of the mid-late 90s.

    Would have loved to have seen a Newport 3.

    I still have my 1998 long neck stainless steel teryllium putter, get it refinished every few years or so. Love the looks of the long style neck putters.

    Man was really hoping that Newport 2 was a tri-sole like the old ones. Atleast the bumpers on the Newport are pretty damn close to 009. I remember when he sent out the email last year about whether or not he should release a button back again, this will do Scotty, this will do.

    Awesome! My favorite putter of all time is being rereleased – i hope they do a good job.

    annnnnnnnd removable weights. nevermind. not interested.

        Scotty’s the most copied… I mean counterfeited putters in the world.

    Cash in while you can, Scotty.
    But nobody likes those weight on the bottom

    • HKO

      Jul 8, 2019 at 11:36 am

      i do. the only prob of the good ol’ ones was their light weight. this revision seems alright-er than the most o’ recent ugly SCs in fact.

      • B

        Jul 9, 2019 at 1:53 am

        The weights make them all feel cheap and not solid though

  23. Dan

    Jul 8, 2019 at 10:36 am

    I still use mine

  24. joe

    Jul 8, 2019 at 10:23 am

    They command a premium, but let’s hope the price of these is a REASONABLE premium.

  25. David

    Jul 8, 2019 at 10:22 am

    I’ll stick with my original newport 2 teryllium. Nothing wrong with carbon steel if you take care of your equipment. Easily one of the most recognizable putters from afar.

    • Julian

      Jul 25, 2019 at 9:32 pm

      unless you live in a climate that doesn’t allow you to use cabon steel with a raw finish like the PNW!

  26. Ayres13

    Jul 8, 2019 at 9:56 am

    I wish he ran a Newport 3 model as well. I would have jumped all over that, but these just don’t make the cut.

  27. Cdub

    Jul 8, 2019 at 9:36 am

    Was all in until I saw the sight line on the Newport. What a shame.

    • Richard

      Jul 8, 2019 at 10:43 am

      The Newport is much better looking than the Newport 2 and the sight line is a no brainer IMO. People put sight lines on their golf balls in addition to whats on the putter. It would make sense for them to make the production version with a sight line and allow custom orders without than the other way around. They probably put the sight line on the last Newport to compare retail sales against Newport 2.

    Beautiful and classy!

Morning 9: Tour updates | One-week offseason | Forgotten father of Skins Game?

October 18, 2019

Good Friday morning, golf fans. Get out there and enjoy some fall golf this weekend!
1. CJ Cup
AP report on the action on Jeju Island, where tournament favorite Justin Thomas has surged to the top…”Justin Thomas shot a 9-under 63 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, putting himself in position to win his second PGA Tour event in South Korea in three years.”
  • “Thomas, who won the inaugural CJ Cup in 2017, has a two-round total of 13-under 131.”
  • “South Korean-born New Zealander Danny Lee (66) is in a tie for second place with first-round leader and former U.S. Amateur champion Byeong-Hun An, who shot 69 before his home fans.”

Full piece.

2. French Open
With round 2 underway, here’s the post-round one report from Reuters…”George Coetzee and Ryan Fox carded six-under-par 65s to share the lead in the French Open first round on Thursday as the European Tour returned to Le Golf National in Paris a year after the course hosted the Ryder Cup.”
3. Hole-in-one and a second-round lead 
AP report…”Brooke Henderson made a hole-in-one and shot an 8-under 64 to take the lead in the second round of the Buick LPGA Shanghai on Friday.”
  • “The Canadian aced the 175-yard second hole. She followed that with a bogey, but then birdied four more holes on the front nine, finishing her round at 11-under 133 total.”
  • “Jessica Korda (67) was two strokes behind in second, followed by defending champion Danielle Kang (67) in third.”
4. One-week offseason
The Forecaddie with an interesting scheduling observation…”The Man Out Front could not get past the dates for the Korn Ferry Tour playoffs.”
  • “The season-ending stretch will compete head-to-head with the PGA Tour playoffs, right down to the final Sunday of Aug. 30.”
  • Which means while the FedEx Cup comes to a conclusion at East Lake, the Korn Ferry Tour’s always valiant battles to gain Tour cards will be playing out at Victoria National and once again presented by United Leasing but without the spotlight those finals enjoyed this year when finishing on Labor Day, a week clear of the 2019 Tour Championship.”
5. Molinari splits with caddie
Our Gianni Magliocco writes…”Francesco Molinari has parted ways with his caddie Pello Iguaran, who has been on the Italian’s bag for the last four years.”
  • “The 2018 Open Champion will now employ Jason Hempleman until the beginning of 2020 where Mark Fulcher will then take the reigns. Fulcher caddied for Justin Rose for 11 years, in which period Rose won the U.S. Open and Olympic Gold.”
  • “The 36-year-old announced the decision via his social media accounts, where he stated…”It’s been nearly 4 seasons of incredible emotions and really productive work, but unfortunately relationships sometimes come to an end, even if it’s not what we wish for.Pello will always be a member of my team and more importantly my family. He’s one of the most hardworking, loyal, positive, reflective people I’ve come across during my career.”

Full piece.

6. Tiger’s back, but is he ready?
ESPN’s Bob Harig, always a voice of reason, breaks down Tiger Woods’ activities since last playing professional golf, along with what he has on the docket, before concluding..”All of this assumes a level of health and fitness that went missing for the latter part of 2019. Woods turns 44 on Dec. 30 and performing at a high level — competing and winning tournaments — depends so much on his ability to properly prepare, let alone be fit enough to compete with the best in the world.”
  • “But first things first: a long trip to Japan, a skins competition followed by a PGA Tour event, and some answers to where Woods is headed with his game.”
7. How the Skins Game started
Speaking of skins, great stuff from Adam Schupak for Golfweek on the forgotten man from the genesis of the beloved event…”When Steve Sesnick read about the upcoming reboot of the Skins Game in Japan headlined by Tiger Woods, he couldn’t help but feel a moment of pride like that of a proud parent. And why not? It was further confirmation that his concept – even if he believes it has outlasted its expiration date – still works.”
“More than 35 years ago, Sesnick claims that he conceived the concept that became one of the most successful made-for-TV franchises in all of sports: four of golf’s biggest names, competing in a go-for-broke format over two days during Thanksgiving weekend when golf traditionally was dark, college football was limited, and even the NFL had two fewer games to compete against.”
8. Record rounds in the 60s
Viktor Hovland’s incredible play continues…Golf Channel’s Carson Williams…”A day after setting a PGA Tour record with his 18th consecutive round in the 60s, Hovland was at it again Friday during the second round of the CJ Cup in South Korea where he carded his 19th straight round in the 60s. The newly-minted Tour member drained a testy par putt at the par-4 ninth to keep his streak alive.”
  • “No, it’s cool,” Hovland said Friday following a second straight 3-under 69. “Obviously I would have liked to have maybe higher finishes in the tournaments that I’ve played, but it really goes to show the consistency that I’ve had over the summer.”

Full piece.

9. Tiger’s Olympic goal 
Reuters report…”Tiger Woods says next year’s Tokyo Olympics are a “big goal” as he looks to add to his decorated career.”
  • “Woods, 43, won his 15th major at the Masters earlier this year but injury ruled him out of golf’s return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence in 2016.”
  • “I don’t see myself having too many opportunities other than next year,” the American said.

Francesco Molinari splits with caddie Pello Iguaran

Published

on

Francesco Molinari has parted ways with his caddie Pello Iguaran, who has been on the Italian’s bag for the last four years.

The 2018 Open Champion will now employ Jason Hempleman until the beginning of 2020 where Mark Fulcher will then take the reigns. Fulcher caddied for Justin Rose for 11 years, in which period Rose won the U.S. Open and Olympic Gold.

The 36-year-old announced the decision via his social media accounts, where he stated

“It’s been nearly 4 seasons of incredible emotions and really productive work, but unfortunately relationships sometimes come to an end, even if it’s not what we wish for.Pello will always be a member of my team and more importantly my family. He’s one of the most hardworking, loyal, positive, reflective people I’ve come across during my career.

We’ve had both good and tough times on the course, but most importantly we both grew together and as individuals during our time together. Best of luck for the future and thanks for an amazing run together Jason Hempleman will be on the bag until the end of the season. Mark Fulcher will be on the bag at the start of 2020.”

Sono state quasi 4 stagioni di emozioni incredibili e lavoro davvero produttivo, ma sfortunatamente le relazioni a volte non finiscono come tutti vorremmo. Pello sarà sempre un membro del mio team e, soprattutto, della mia famiglia. È una delle persone più laboriose, leali, positive e riflessive che ho incontrato durante la mia carriera. Abbiamo avuto momenti belli e momenti difficili sul campo, ma soprattutto siamo cresciuti insieme e come individui durante il tempo insieme. Buona fortuna per il futuro e grazie per una fantastica esperienza insieme Jason Hempleman sarà il mio caddie fino alla fine dell’anno. Mark Fulcher sarà il caddie dall'inizio del 2020 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

A post shared by Francesco Molinari (@chiccogolf) on

In the period Molinari and Iguaran were together, some of the highlights include Molinari’s win at The Open Championship in 2018, the BMW PGA Championship, and the 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational. However, since April, Molinari has failed to record a top-10 finish.

Morning 9: LPGA, LET partnership? | Ryder Cup ticket fiasco | Alfredsson: Senior women’s golf dynamo

Published

Email me at ben.alberstadt@golfwrx.com and find me at @benalberstadt on Instagram and golfwrxEIC on Twitter.

October 17, 2019

Good Thursday morning, golf fans.
1. “True partnership”
Golf Channel’s Randall Mell on an exciting development for women’s golf…
  • “The LPGA and Ladies European Tour have renewed talks that could lead to “a true partnership” between the two organizations.”
  • “LET Board Chair Marta Figueras-Dotti sent a letter to LET players this week informing them of the discussions. She told players that a dialogue was “in full swing” to create a “50-50 joint venture” between the tours.”
  • “LPGA and LET officials said in a joint statement Wednesday that while it’s too early to publicly discuss specifics, they are working to complete terms of a new agreement in time to present it to LET players at their annual meeting on Nov. 26 in Spain.”

Full piece.

2. Alfredsson!
AP report on the emerging dynamo in women’s senior golf with the 2019 double…
  • “Helen Alfredsson added the Senior LPGA Championship to her U.S. Senior Women’s Open title, rallying Wednesday at cold and windy French Lick Resort to sweep the two major championships of the season.”
  • “Three strokes behind Juli Inkster entering the day, Alfredsson closed with a 2-under 70 for a three-stroke victory. The 54-year-old Swede was the only player to break par on the final day at the Pete Dye Course and, at 2-under 214, the only one under par for the week.”

Full piece.

3. And on Jeju Island…
AP report…An was on!
  • “In the first event of a three-tournament PGA TOUR swing through Asia, Byeong Hun An was the first-round leader in his home country at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES with an 8-under 64. Joaquin Niemann sits a stroke behind in second.”
  • “Jason Day’s attempt to impress International team captain Ernie Els for a spot at the Presidents Cup took a positive turn when the Australian shot a 6-under 66 to sit two strokes off the lead and in solo third after the opening round.”

Full piece.

4. Ticket fiasco
Oh boy. JR Radcliffe at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, syndicated in Golfweek…”Tickets for the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, next year sold out in less than 50 minutes on Wednesday, and fans on social media were furious with the process.”
  • “Tickets for the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler next year sold out in less than 50 minutes on Wednesday, and fans on social media were furious with the process.”
  • “The Ryder Cup website did indicate: “Due to high demand, having an access code does not guarantee you a chance to buy tickets. Available inventory may vary depending on when you’re able to access the sale.”
5. “Better options”
ESPN’s Bob Harig suggests Lefty doesn’t think he’s getting picked for captain Woods’ squads…”Mickelson said Wednesday that he doesn’t expect an at-large pick from U.S. Presidents Cup team captain Tiger Woods and that he does not believe he is deserving.”
  • “There are much better options of players that have played consistently at a high level that deserve to be on the team,” Mickelson, 49, said in South Korea at the CJ Cup, a PGA Tour event he is playing for the first time. “Even if I were to win, I have not done enough to warrant a pick.
  • “I’m not asking for one. I don’t expect one. I think there are a lot of better options for the U.S. side.”
6. 58 penalty strokes!
Golf Digest’s Alex Myers on a wildly penal occurrence…”Lee Ann Walker was assessed 58 penalty strokes after it was discovered she had violated Rule 10.2b several times over the course of the first two rounds at the senior major being played at the Pete Dye Course in French Lick, Ind. Implemented earlier this year, the rule prohibits caddies from lining up golfers on putting greens, among other spots on the course. And as Walker found out, there is no limit to the amount of penalty strokes a player can incur for breaking it.”
  • “In a statement released by the Senior LPGA Championship Rules Committee, the harsh decision came after Walker notified a rules official during the second round on Tuesday that she had been violating the rule. Obviously, Walker didn’t realize this until it was pointed out to her by a fellow caddie on her fifth hole. Walker then went through her round so far as well as the first round on Monday to determine just how many times she broke the rule. Considering the total, she was obviously being lined up by her caddie on most putts.”

Full piece.

7. BK vs. Rory
Our Gianni Magliocco…”The 29-year-old, who was speaking to the AFP ahead of this week’s CJ Cup, has been on the PGA Tour since 2015 and has won four major’s in that period, while McIlroy’s last success at a major championship came back in 2014.”
  • “I’ve been out here for, what, five years. Rory hasn’t won a major since I’ve been on the PGA Tour. So I just don’t view it as a rivalry.”
  • “The world number one then further reiterated his lack of belief that there is currently a serious rivalry in golf and laid out his intentions to remain at the top of the sport for the foreseeable future.”
  • “I’m not looking at anybody behind me. I’m number one in the world. I’ve got open road in front of me I’m not looking in the rearview mirror, so I don’t see it as a rivalry. You know if the fans do (call it a rivalry), then that’s on them and it could be fun. Look I love Rory he’s a great player and he’s fun to watch, but it’s just hard to believe there’s a rivalry in golf. I just don’t see it.”

Full piece.

8. Meanwhile, at Q-School…
Golf Channel’s Randall Mell with the report on the action in Florida…”Germany’s going for a wire-to-wire victory at the LPGA’s second stage of Q-School.”
  • “Esther Henseleit grabbed a share of the second-round lead with a 5-under 67 Tuesday at Plantation Golf & Country Club in Venice, Fla., a day after fellow countrywoman Olivia Cowan took the first-round lead.”
  • “At 9-under overall, Henseleit is tied at the top with China’s Yan Liu (67), one shot ahead of Cowan (72), Thailand’s Prima Thammaraks (68) and American amateur Sierra Brooks, whose 66 equaled the low round of the day.”

Full piece.

9. LPGA Shanghai update
Golf Channel’s Randall Mell...”Nasa Hataoka should be getting more worldwide attention.
With two Japan LPGA Tour major championship victories in her homeland over the last month, she arrived for the start of this week’s Buick LPGA Shanghai on fire.”
  • “And she didn’t cool off in Thursday’s first round.”
  • “A 5-under-par 67 at Qizhong Garden Golf Club gave Hataoka a share of the lead with South Korea’s Amy Yang.”
