I have always been a fan of TITLEIST putters ever since I bought my first scotty Cameron pro platinum back when i was in highschool. Since then i have had a few different putters and i would play with them for awhile but I always found myself going back to that pro platinum Newport 2. Now last year i landed on the Taylormade tour ghost daytona and it felt like I was going to keep this one for awhile.
But then last week I was at my local pro shop and he had got a TITLEIST shipment in and was unpacking it when I showed up. I started to help him open boxes and lay stuff out and I just happened to open the box that had the new TITLEIST Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2. I had seen pictures of these putters in golfsmith magazine but let me say they do absolutely no justice whatsoever. I immediately dropped the box and ran like a little school boy over to the putting area, scooped up a few Pro V1x's and started rolling putts. This putter made it feel like i was hitting my forged blades with that awesome buttery feel that you can barely tell the ball was even there. The grip feels similar to the Ping pistol grip that I put on all of my putters ( which is one of the most used putter grips on tour so I'm told). So with the combination of the grip and the deep milled face this thing felt like a million bucks in my hands.
Like i said before the pictures don't really show you how good these things look. They are a jet gloss black with the 3 deep ruby red dots on the back of the face, which is a great contrast of color. The sole of the putter has the two weights (I believe the Newport 2 had 2 15gram weights) which give it a nice weight adding to the soft solid feel at impact. So after rolling about 20 balls I decided that i had to have this putter so I gave the pro the little money I had on me to hold it and ill be picking it up at the end of next week i hope!! So that's my opinion/review of the new TITLEIST Scotty Cameron Select putter.
If your a Cameron fan then I'm sure you will like these putters. I will say tho that there is not a huge difference from these and the California line so you may not be blown away but i still feel that they are fantastic putters. I jumped on the white bandwagon last year with Taylormade but this year I think black and red is the new white!! LOL. Hope you guys like what i had to say if not I'm sorry.....
