Titleist’s new Scotty Cameron Super Select 2023 putters: Here’s everything you need to know

Published

on

On Tuesday, Titleist announced that a new lineup of Scotty Cameron “Super Select” putters are coming soon in 2023. There will be 10 new Super Select putter models in total, but the release is happening in two waves:

  • Six new Scotty Cameron Super Select models will hit stores starting March 17, 2023 (Newport, Newport Plus, Newport 2, Newport 2 Plus, Newport 2.5 Plus and Squareback 2)
  • Then, four new Scotty Cameron Super Select models will hit stores on May 19, 2023 (Super Select Fastback 1.5, Del Mar and the new GOLO 6 and GOLO 6.5)

Compared to Scotty Cameron’s previous “Special Select” putters, which came out in 2020, Titleist says the new Super Select 2023 putters have new blade and mid-mallet model designs, revamped neck styles, refined shapes, new milling techniques, improved multi-material construction, and “cutting-edge” weight distribution. Scotty Cameron, of course, works closely with tour professionals week-in and week-out, so naturally there’s been a number of changes throughout the lineup since the previous 2020 release.

Overall, there are four major changes you’ll see throughout the Super Select 2023 putter family:

  1. “Plus” models: The Newport Plus, Newport 2 Plus and Newport 2.5 Plus models look like traditional blade-style putters, but they’re made with wider dimensions to help promote mallet-like forgiveness.
  2. Dual-milling process: To enhance feel, sound and performance, Scotty Cameron is now using a dual-milled process, which he’s used previously on Tour Prototypes, according to Titleist. Here’s how the milling process works: “After a deep-milled pass of the mill across the putter face, a second pass of the mill levels the peaks of the face milling, producing a flatter, more consistent surface for the ball to contact the putter face,” says Titleist.
  3. “I-Beam” hosels: Eight of the 10 new models – aside from the Del Mar and GOLO 6 – feature a new hosel design that helps remove weight from the neck of the putter, which was then repositioned into the toe and heel portions of the heads to increase forgiveness.
  4. Weight configuration: The multi-material putters (303 stainless bodies and 6061 aircraft grade aluminum sole plates) have weights in the sole that are made from either stainless steel or Tungsten, thus allowing Scotty Cameron to optimize weighting distribution in each model.

Here’s what Scotty Cameron himself had to say about the 2023 lineup:

With the new Super Select putters, the name just fits. I’ve been creating putters for a long time, and after each line rolls out and gets played, new ideas emerge. There’s always a better way. I try to make all the refinements I can to bring more performance to players, to give them more confidence and, in the end, hopefully more success.

“Key to the 2023 Super Select family are the new ‘Plus’ models, which I introduced on Tour last year, then crafted into a few limited release models to really showcase this new higher-MOI blade design. Now, we have three new ‘Plus’ options in a few of our most popular designs. Additionally, I’ve brought back the GOLO name and shape in a new size. Familiar models like our Newport, Newport 2, Squareback 2, Fastback 1.5 and Del Mar all have our new dual-milling for a great feel off the face that combines the feel of a deep mill with the consistency across the face of mid-mill. Inspired by putters made for tour professionals, I have introduced new I-beam necks and various cosmetic upgrades to the finish and graphics. I’ve tried in every way to make these Super Select putters live up to their name.”

Each of the new Scotty Cameron Super Select putters are slated to sell for $449 apiece (MAP; Minimum Advertised Price), and they come stock with two customizable weights. The blade-style putters come equipped with a Pistolini grip, while the mid-mallets are equipped with a comparatively larger Pistolero Plus grip.

Here’s how Titleist describes the Super Select putter aesthetics:

“New 2023 Super Select stainless steel putter heads all undergo Scotty’s silver mist process for a near-permanent, radiant, yet glare resistant, appearance and texture. The 6061 aircraft grade aluminum components have been misted and anodized in a clear, bright aluminum finish. Scotty’s familiar three-dot theme carries through to the back cavities as unpainted, raw circles milled into the stainless steel. The engravings and sight lines are painted asphalt gray, except on the soles where Scotty Cameron and the ‘+’ symbols on Plus models are accented in cherry red translucent paint.”

    Super select is just as bad a Uber select. Nothing new about these putters and the name reflects it.

Odyssey Tri-Hot 5K lineup now includes mallets

Published

on

What you need to know: In January 2022, in the name of creating a blades with the MOI of mallets and forward CG, Odyssey threw everything at the wall with the Tri-Hot 5K family of blade putters: stainless steel, tungsten, 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. A year later, the company is bringing the same technology package to mallets with the Rossie and Seven models. The Tri-Hot 5K lineup now stands at seven putters (four with multiple necks).

2023 Odyssey Tri-Hot putters: Features and technology

Engineers applied the “Tri-Hot formula” utilized in blade putters in 2022 to move CG forward and raise MOI for a more forgiving mallet design — and a 5,000 IZZ inertia level (hence “5K”). Golfers will see improved speed and spin control, as well as consistency on off-center hits, according to the company, resulting in golf balls that finish closer to the hole when sub-optimally struck.

Stainless steel front: Odyssey touts the side-spin reducing capabilities of the 303 stainless steel hosel and face area for off-center putts. Tighter dispersion and putts that a more likely to go in results. Acting in a complementary fashion, the rear of the mallets are milled for tighter shape and weight tolerances that allows the CG to remain forward.

Tungsten front weights: Up to 120 grams of tungsten is positioned behind the face in the heel and toe sections of the putter heads. The resulting forward CG improves roll and increases inertia.

Interchangeable front weights: Available in 5, 10, 15 and 20 grams to dial in head weight and performance.

White Hot insert: 2023 Tri-Hot 5K putters add the iconic two-part urethane White Hot insert, which was originally developed using the same material as Callaway’s Rule 35 golf ball. White Hot, with its “firm but soft” properties has been a long-time favorite of Callaway staffers and recreational golfers. According to Callaway, “They’ve been asking for us to bring these technologies back and we’ve listened.” Can’t argue with that.

Stroke Lab shaft: The newest generation of Callaway’s multi-material Stroke Lab shaft features a shortened steel section and reduced weight (seven grams). Additionally it is stiffer. All of this leads to more stability and consistency.

Additional model details

Full lineup details — and who they’re for — including 2022 releases, via Callaway. 

One: A classically shaped heel toe weighted putter with a crank neck hosel creating moderate toe hang making it suitable for strokes that have moderate arc and face rotation

Three: A classically shaped heel toe weighted putter with a flow neck hosel yielding more toe hang making it suitable for strokes with more aggressive swing arc and face rotation

Double Wide (CH, CB): CH: A wide blade with a crank neck hosel yielding moderate toe hang making it suitable for strokes with moderate swing arc and face rotation. CS: Face-balanced center shafted wide blade making it suitable for strokes with minimal swing arc and face rotation

Triple Wide (DB, CS): DB: A face-balanced double bend wide blade making it suitable for strokes with minimal swing arc and face rotation. CS: A face-balanced center shafted wide blade making it suitable for strokes with minimal swing arc and face rotation.
