SCOTTY CAMERON SELECT NEWPORT 2
www.titleist.com Headweight: Changeable depending on length
Grip: Red Matador Midsize Toe hang: Moderate
TECH: Precision-milled from soft 303 steel to maximise feel and responsiveness. A floating insert helps raise MOI which means a higher resistance to twisting.
WE SAY: Respect to Ping for inventing the Anser putter shape, but surely Scotty deserves credit for coming up with the idea to precision CNC-mill such an iconic shape, too. The Newport 2 is one of his most coveted models, and we can see why. The head’s moderate toe hang will suit a stroke with a bit of rotation and we felt the head bore a touch more weight, which we really liked as it’s been said before that Scottys can be a bit light for year-round use in the UK. A simple single alignment line focuses attention nicely.
VERDICT: A top quality putter which blade purists will adore. The floating insert is a worthwhile refinement. If you must have the Rolex of putters you’ve just found it.
