Adam Scott spotted with a prototype Cameron mallet

Published

on

Check out the photos of Adam Scott’s new Scotty Cameron long putter — a Futura X Prototype — that he’s using this week at the Northern Trust Open.

Scott resurrected his career when he made the switch to a 49-inch Scotty Cameron Kombi-S long putter, but after the announcement of the USGA’s plan to ban anchored putters was spotted practicing with a short putter at the 2012 Australian Open.

The Futura X Prototype appears to have a similar body structure to the Kombi, which was rebranded as the “Big Sur” in 2012, but has a u-shaped rear section that holds two “Circle T” weights in the extreme heel and toe areas. The original Futura has a similar stainless steel bar in the rear section of the putter head that held 75 percent of the putter’s weight. But the bar was thinner, held no removable weights and was positioned in the opposite direction as the one on Scott’s putter head.

Could this be the next mallet released from Mr. Cameron? We wouldn’t doubt it, but we’re sure if it is released it won’t come with the Tour only Circle T weights.

    How long is it going to take all the Scotty followers to realize that all he is doing is copying successful Putters and charging an arm and a leg for them. His design, the Futura went over like a lead balloon. Of course as he says, I just make them look better, and laughs all the way to the bank.

    What kind of originality do you people want? I’m no Scotty Cameron addict like I know many are (equally as many hate for whatever reason…I think jealousy)… There’s not a whole lot more anyone can do to a putter to add technology or originality…but maybe Adam Scott requested a putter head that’s like a tm spyder or bobby grace, it’s just an extremely high moi mallet with as much weight to the back corners as possible. He’s a titleist guy if he wants that thing painted white and had a good reason I’m sure Scotty would do it because that’s what he’s there for, to pamper his tour pros, not to make overprice “knockoff” putters, in fact it’s mostly a product of us wrxers that assign such value to this “circle t” stamp and thus yield a high price tag….anyway the reason I don’t like Adams new putter us because he should be having Scotty make him some prototype shorties and keep practicing, not go further in the opposite direction.

    Somebody tell Frank Thomas that Scotty has infringed on his Frankly Frog patents.

    Not sure I’m a big fan of the “snail’s eyes” dual weights…it’s tough to out-ugly that baby!

    Xerox is at it again. Don T’s copy of the TMs Spiders and the Bobby Grace’s F-22.

    I hope Adam changes back to the shorter putter sooner rather than later. The fans are going to start teasing him if he wins with the longer version.

    That thing has been floating around Scotty’s lab for a couple of years now…

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.
