Adam’s Scott’s long putter spotted in a short version

Futura X Prototype

Adam Scott used a 49-inch version of Scotty Cameron’s Futura X Prototype putter to win the Masters. Not even two weeks later, Cameron has supplied the PGA Tour with a smaller, lighter version of Scott’s putter.

The Futura X Prototype short putter was spotted on the Zurich Classic practice putting green in 33-, 34- and 35-inch lengths.

It features the same aluminum construction and “Frozen Titanium” finish as Scott’s putter, as well as four removable weights that allow golfers to tune head weight and weight position.

Depending on a player’s stroke (and access to Tour putters, of course), a golfer could change the weight distribution to give the putter a higher or lower center of gravity, as well as a heel or toe weight bias.

    Beauty may only be skin deep, but sometimes ugly goes all the way to the bones. But I guess it just goes to prove that even with your tools it ain’t how, it’s how many.

    Is that a putter or a UFO?

    It has a strange beauty in its ugliness . My guess is that it puts a pure roll on the ball and function always surpasses appearance when you are trying to hole putts. The four interchangeable weights bothers me. It plays with your head like adjustable drivers. What’s next, an app to tell you how to adjust it for right to left breaks.

    Those weights are seriously distracting. I already can’t keep my head still. Gotta think that there’d be some reflection from the sun off of them as well.

    I’m glad I had a chance to see this putter close up! But saying it’s ugly is a disservice to ugly!!!

      HAHA yes KJ, excellent description. I was going to describe it as a casket. Did you ever see the detour Nick? hideous…

        I will credit the Jason Sobel Golf Channel Masters live blog for the description. I think I picked it up there.

    Masters win or not…it is quite possibly the ugliest putter on the planet.
