Scotty Cameron releases Newport 3, new Futura mallets for 2017

Published

on

Scotty Cameron is best known for his blade-style putters, but in recent years the putter maker has seen an uptick in the popularity of mallet style putters like his GoLo and Futura X – both on the PGA Tour and with golfers everywhere.

For 2017, he’s releasing a new take on one of his most iconic designs called the Newport 3, as well as seven new Futura mallet putters that he says offer golfers “high-tech with high quality.”

Newport 3 


Select Newport 3 PP

The Newport 3 is the latest addition to Scott Cameron’s Select putter line. It’s heel-shafted, mid-mallet that’s inspired by the company’s Newport head shape and uses a flow neck with a three-quarter offset to create “maximum toe flow.”

Select Newport 3 Toe Flow Sole

“Fans of our classic, heel-shafted mallets like the Del Mar 3.5 and the GoLo 3 will love the melt-into-the-ground, flowing lines of the Newport 3,” Cameron says. “When you look at the entire Select family, the Newport 3 is the perfect, curvy small mallet that just fits in conceptually between the Newport 2 Notchback and the mallets.”

Select Newport 3 Hero 1

Despite its old-school roots, the putter offers new-school tech with a multi-material design that makes the putter more stable and forgiving. The putter face is made with a lightweight 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum inlay, which is fused to a 303 stainless steel body to make the putter more forgiving.

Select Newport 3 Toe Flow Face

“We’ve extended the methodology of our proven multi-material technology to include the aircraft grade aluminum inlay, which allows me to design more of the weight into the sculpted back flange, as well as get the sweet feel the inlay produces. The result is an extension to the Select family that pulls together the entire line.”

Like other Select putters, the Newport 3 also uses two removable, customizable stainless steel toe and heel sole weights, a stepless steel shaft and a Red Matador Mid-size grip. The Newport 3 will be in stores March 17 and sell for $379.

Futura 6M DB  Hero 1

Scotty Cameron’s wrap-around face-sole construction merges a lightweight 6061 aircraft aluminum with a precision-milled 303 stainless steel body.

With its seven new Futura putters, Scotty Cameron sought to combine the best characteristics of the company’s GoLo and Futura X putters. The result was several new putter head styles – from mid-mallets to larger, high-MOI mallets – that feature multi-material constructions.

Unlike the new Newport 3, the 2017 Futura putters use Scotty Cameron’s wrap-around face-sole construction, which allows the putter heads to be made larger and more stable, while improving the consistency of sound and feel.

“This new Futura line blends my ideas about high-performance putter designs with my longstanding ideals that high-tech should always be high-quality,” Cameron says. “What we’ve pioneered with our multi-material technology allows me to design properly-weighted larger putter heads for more stable setups to give mallet players more confidence over putts.”

Names, Prices and Photos

Futura 6M Back DB

The Futura models are labeled by number (5, 6, 7). Higher numbers indicate a larger putter head, and the numbers are paired with a one- or two-letter abbreviation of their general design:

  • CB stands for “cavity back”
  • MB stands for “muscle back”
  • W stands for “wing”
  • S stands for “straight shaft”
  • M stands for “MOI”

The putters come with two removable, customizable stainless steel sole weights, stepless steel shafts and Black Matador Mid-size grips.

See photos of each 2017 Futura putter below. They’ll be in stores March 17 and will sell for $379 each with the exception of the Futura 6M Dual Balance ($399), which uses a 50-gram heavier head that’s counterbalanced with a 50-gram grip weight – as well as a longer, larger grip — to offer golfers more stability.

    So are the X7M and 7M the same putter with different graphics, paint scheme and grip? X7M is 2016 and 7M is 2017?

    I like the new line. I’m glad Scotty’s is offering more choice than just toe weighted putters. I have an old Newport 2 that’s been banished to my closet…lol. I use to leave a lot of putts short with it. Quality still seems to be there.

    So I guess the Newport 3 is the old Del Mar?

    I’ve always been blown away that he’s never released the putter that Tiger uses. You know, a Newport 2 with a sight dot and no line. Popular player. Well-known putter. Go figure.

    Wow,,,,,,,,,, wonder who is running Scotty Cameron putters? FILA? If they were to bring back the simple Newport/2 all stainless steel no inserts, 340-350 grams, it would be an incredible seller

    Look cheap and mass produced to me. Local and handcrafted stuff is taking over the market everywhere. These putters are like the natural lite of beer.

    How many putters do we need, this is the mallet line, then the blade line will come out, they’ll end up with about 15

    Isn’t that Newport 3 actually a pure Del Mar?

    Marketing genius yes, visionary putter designer no.

      Not sure if profiting from the gullibility of handicap golfers qualifies as genius but, if it does, then Cameron is the Einstein of his field.

    When does he plan to release the good looking putters?

    Between these and new Odysseys, I have no hope for the future of putters at retail. So awful

    Would have purchased a 5S but once again, no luck for te lefties!

    Looks like I’ll be changing milled putters since Scotty Cameron doesn’t offer much left handed…
