Seldom Used Scotty Putter a Winner for McIlroy…

Golfweek’s Jennifer Gardner has the scoop on the putter used by Rory McIlroy during his romp to victory at the U.S. Open (Congressional Golf Club in Bethesda, Maryland). He deployed his little-used Scotty Cameron Newport GSS which sports a chromatic bronze finish.

McIlroy, a Titleist staff player, has used Scotty Cameron putters in the past. He first received the prototype putter at the 2010 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Though he has used it for events in Europe, this was his first time using it in the States. The Newport GSS putter provided McIlroy with a slightly different toe to better accommodate his putting stroke.

Scotty Cameron Circa ’62 No. 1: Smooth and Buttery Says it All

The Scotty Cameron Circa '62 No. 1

The Scotty Cameron Circa '62 No. 1During my first round with the Scotty Cameron Circa ’62 No. 1 in-hand, I rolled about a 60 footer from off the green, straight into the heart of the cup. I knew from that point on that this short stick was going to enjoy an extended period in the bag… In fact, it’s been over a year since I first introduced it to my game, and it’s still rolling strong.

In the design of the Circa ’62 No. 1, Scotty Cameron has put together a ‘new’ classic. Based on the blades of yesteryear, the No. 1 combines that great classic look, with a soft (and very buttery feeling!) carbon steel putter head. The view of the putter from the top line is clean. No markings at all are found on the flange, all you’ll notice is a small alignment dot on the top. That’s it. And, during those bright and blindingly sunny days, there’s no worries of glare. A custom charcoal-mist finish knocks down any glare to keep your focus where it should be, on the putt.

Everything feels right when you lay the No. 1 down behind the ball. The head feels balanced, the grip is perfect, and a 3/4 offset feels ‘just right’ at address. At least, that’s my opinion.

Scotty Cameron assures that ALL putters in the Circa ’62 line have been optimized for perfect grip weight, headweight and shaft flex… and I can say from experience, this putter is a keeper. In fact, even though I’ve only hit the Circa ’62 No. 1, I’d hazard a guess that all models (there’s the No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 6 and No. 7) are just as smooth, buttery and responsive as the next. Trust me when I say if you’re looking for a putter that gives awesome feedback and a true roll… Look no further than the Scotty Cameron Circa ’62 lineup.

  • Loft: 4 degrees
  • Lie: 71 degrees
  • Length: 35″ (RH)
  • Headweight: 330g

Davis Love III Shows Off His Custom Scotty Cameron ‘Stealth’ Carry Bag

Oh it’s just so not fair. Why do all of the major-winning, straight-hitting, putt-sinking professionals get all the good schwag? 🙂 The other day I happened to notice the bag you see above in Davis Love III’s twitter feed. A custom Scotty Cameron ‘Stealth’ bag. Fantastic. I’ll take two!

Big tip of the cap to the folks at Scotty Cameron for putting together the bag, and another tip of the cap to Davis for sharing it with his followers. I know almost EVERYONE out there would want this bag over their shoulder… or better yet, their caddy’s shoulder 🙂
