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

Published

on

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.

Check out the photos below we snapped of the putter, and click here to see what members are saying in the forums.

    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!!!

    Nick, did you see the toaster Sandy Lyle used at The Masters?

      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.

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.
