McIlroy still rolling with his Cameron putter

Published

on

Last week at the BMW Championship at Wentworth, Rory McIlroy switched from his Nike Method prototype putter back to his old Scotty Cameron gamer.

Based on the photos we shot yesterday, it appears that the current No. 2-ranked golfer in the world will continue to roll with the Scotty Cameron putter that took him to the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Rankings at this week at the Memorial Tournament.

The curious thing is that McIlroy is only putting slightly worse than he did in 2012. He’s currently ranked 100th in the PGA Tour’s Strokes-Gained Putting stat, just 18 slots worse than his ranking in 2012, a year in which he won three PGA Tour events and his second major championship, the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course.

McIlroy’s Nike putter and Scotty Cameron putter are nearly identical, with the exception of Nike’s polymetal grooves in the putter face that Nike says gets the ball rolling sooner off the putter face with less skid.

Like McIlroy, fellow Nike Golf Staff Member Tiger Woods teetered back and forth between his Scotty Cameron putter and a Nike putter until the 2010 British Open. Since that time, he has used a Nike Method 001 almost exclusively, and is currently ranked 1st in the Strokes-Gained Putting stat.

    interesting about the ball

    guess Rorys played the Pro V/x since school.

    big change.I wonder if the change to his own management company will Buy out his Nike Contract?

    that ball is the culprit, plain and simple. No one on here can tell me that they couldn’t tell the difference between the V1x and the 20xi – blindfolded. He bought in to the whole bag too soon. It’s not the gear, NIKE makes top quality stuff (minus the putters, so far), but the ball is SO far behind the V1/(x) that it’s just not fair to compare.

    I bet if he went back to Titleist for the Open he’d win it….

    It’s not the putter, it’s the ball he should switch.

    Tiger did the same thing. It took him awhile and a lot of back and forth between the new Nike and old Scotty before he finally did it full time. Heck he still uses a non-filled Scotty grip on his Nike.

    I think you can have any good putters’ specs rigged so they are mechanically the same: The one you put best with will be the one you believe in.
