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.
