Scotty’s New Futura Putters
High performance mallets with enhanced forgiveness and stability
The new line of Scotty Cameron Futura putters offers seven high performance mallet-style models that provide golfers at every level of the game with stable, forgiving putter setups. From rounded midmallets to high-tech, high-MOI larger mallets, the 2017 Futura family melds the best design characteristics of the previous generation GOLO and Futura X lines with Scotty Cameron’s continued innovation in multi-material putter constructions. The result is a cohesive line-up of tour-proven shapes and configurations (higher numbers indicate larger sizes) – Futura 5CB, 5MB, 5W and 5S; Futura 6M and 6M Dual Balance; and Futura 7M – with enhanced stability and forgiveness, improved alignment features, and responsive feel and feedback.
Scotty had this to say about the new line-up, “This new Futura line blends my ideas about high-performance putter designs with my longstanding ideals that high-tech should always be highquality. 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. Fans of the brand may remember the original Futura putter released over a dozen years ago, which was viewed as an experimental design that then went on to be trusted to several titles.
It’s this focus on making putters for the best players in the game that drives me to continue to innovate, experiment and push the boundaries of what we offer to all dedicated golfers. Similar to the world of motorsport, what we prove on Sundays on the worldwide professional golf tours goes into every putter we bring to market. The Futura name validates the decades of design performance my team and I bring to the high-tech putter market and celebrates that early innovation standing the test of time.”
•Multi-material technology – featuring wrap-around face-sole constructions milled from lightweight 6061 aircraft grade aluminium, integrated with precision-milled 303 stainless steel – moves weight back and to the perimeter, allowing for larger putter heads with enhanced High-MOI performance (resistance to twisting during the stroke). These multimaterial, high-MOI designs combine with Scotty’s tour-proven heel-and-toe sole weighting technology to increase stability and forgiveness.
•A built-in vibration dampening system connects the mid-milled face-sole component to the stainless steel frame of each model, producing a responsive feel and feedback that Scotty describes as “soft, but solid.”
•Enhanced alignment options – including milled topline sight lines, dual-purpose alignment (5W, 5S, 6M, 7M), new pop-through visual cues, rail alignment features and bright lines framing the sweet spot – provide added confidence at address.
Scotty gave the Futura line’s raw stainless steel surfaces a Silver Mist finish with a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare-resistant appearance. All aluminium sole plates have been anodized in black. Additionally, the Tour-inspired cosmetics display the familiar three bright translucent red dots in the back cavity with engraved typography befitting this modern, high-performance line.
