Finally got a Scotty!

I have had an old ping that I have been using for close to 10 years. Since I was younger, I always wanted a Scotty Cameron putter. Just always loved the classic Newport look and finish. However, I never got the guts to shell out the money... So I have been using a similar profiled Ping - with great success.

 

Well, my fiance surprised me for V-day with the Scotty she knew I wanted. I was psyched - but then took it to the course and proceeded to putt like crap. lol It is obviously way heavier than my ping, and the ball comes off the face way different as well.

 

I will stick with it though.... but cant help but wonder if I would be better off staying with the ping. time will tell

Which Newport did you get ... from the new California Classic line?

 

The California is a solid collection. I picked up a Monterey model and that has become my gamer for this year.

Jeeves, hope you enjoy it and make lots of putts with it.

 

 

I just got two new Camerons at the first of the year....looking forward to trying them out. With the KC winter here, all I've gotten to do is try them on the carpet in the basement.

 

I had some pro shop credit I had to use by the end of the year. Of course....Cameron doesn't yet make the exact putter I want -- I'd like a Circa 62, no.2 with the sole weights of the CA series. So, I did the next best thing and ordered one of each to try.

 

 

One thing though: The Circa 62 came with the grip put on roughly 6-8* open. You'd think for the money you pay for these things and the way they tout them as finely crafted and all, that they'd at least come with the stupid grip put on straight.

You WOULD think.... However, most of the putters I look at have grips installed crooked. Perhaps I am a little twisted???

Monterey is a nice putter. The finish is getting a bad review (deserved?). I had a heavy Monterey that I just sold after it became the latest victim of my Byron 006.

Uh....what?....Ok, fill me in on the "bad reviews". I hadn't heard anything.

Well, my California Monterey is holding up well. I have only had my putter for a few months now and haven't played a lot, but it puts fantastic and the finish hasn't shown any signs of wear or tear.

The finishes on the California series putters wear. Just like the original newports. Doesn't affect perfomance, just look.

I just read that the sole finish was coming off faster than some thought it should. I did see a picture somewhere of a Monterey that had all of the Honey Dip removed. It looked fantastic.

That putter does have a great feel.

Faster than it should?? I'm sure that Scott wants the finish to come off the first day. Think of all the refinish jobs there will be to do then..... $$$$$$$

After I read your post, the first thing through my mind was "..and the rebels will find that this Death Star is fully operational."

I just can't get the hype about Scotties. I tried several, and I don't think they're any different than any other putter. It's really amazing how marketing directs people to think one product is better than the other.

I know the title of the thread is "Finally got a Scotty" but I just wanted to let everyone know that "I Finally got RID of my Scotty"... :lol:

 

I am now down to one putter from about 15...YAY!! Time to start ho'ing again.

I won't buy any more Scotty's (I don't have the same fever that some do for them) but if my SeeMore starts to argue with me I will call Chris at SunsetBeach for one of his beauties!

Congrats! I am down to 1 Scotty, but it is one that I really like. Teryllium 2 Newport Longneck. It is my office putter at work. Occasionally it slips out to the practice green, but Byron keeps it out of the bag.

Congrats!! But to be honest, I'm putting more better with my Odyssey Sabertooth than anything Scotty has. I have a Circa 62 #3 and enjoy it, but it's not the end all be all. I love Rossa putter's too.. especially the Itsy Bitsy. I've tried the Scotty Kombi putter as well, but don't like it near as much as the Odyssey's.

Current bag: Some Callaway, some Cleveland. Down to 2 OEM's!

Maybe the stainless Kombi will turn you to the dark side. Coming soon...
