He is simply the Rock Star of putter designers.
Two words equate to one of the golf world’s most iconic line of putters — Scotty Cameron.
Scotty was on hand at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show, hanging out with the good folks at Titleist, his employer, the company that has helped him become a multi-millionaire.
This season, Scotty is unveiling his latest line — the Scotty Cameron Select line of putters.
Look, these instruments are great in the hands of guys like Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods. But don’t let that fool you, putting is still the one area of the game where the best in the world struggle. That’s why you see Left Hand Low, Paint Brush, Modified Paint Brush, Brace Grip Against Your Left Arm, Long Putter Unanchored and all that other nonsense. Fewer and fewer players with the old-fashioned standard grip.
As far as the putters themselves, like the rest of the equipment in golf, they’ve gotten more and more expensive, milled, face-balanced and so on and so forth. Still, putting still remains an art form, a feel part of the game that shows to this day that there are the halves and the halve-nots.
At the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show, Scotty was pimping his new line of Scotty Cameron Select putters for Titleist.
Bring your checkbook. Camerons don’t come cheap, even the used Camerons command good prices.
If you want to go overboard, you can spent $9,000 having Scotty customizing one for you.
Still, putting is an art. But when it comes to making really beautiful putters — Scotty remains the artist in residence.
His empire doesn’t stop there. Now there’s an entire line of accessories and items offered under the Scotty Cameron brand.
He’s an industry unto himself.
Yes, he drew a big crowd.
Just call him “Godfather.”
