Scotty Cameron putters sweet spot?


Recommended Posts

Tiger woods putter has a single dot on the top line. Supposedly the dot is directly over the sweet spot. Is it true that stock Scotty Cameron putter’s alignment line is not directly behind the sweet spot of the putter?

 

 

Alignment Aids

Woods’ Newport 2 has a single dot on the top line that helps him put the sweet spot directly behind the center of the ball. Today’s Studio Newport putters come with a single black alignment line on the back flange.

I've seen an IG post or two from the guy behind Flanigan Bilt Putters that Scotty as well as many other mass producers are guilty of having CoG located all over regardless of where the alignment marker is. It's possible, even likely that this is true simply due to the nature of how mass production works. However, it's unlikely for the average golfer to discern much of a difference or even care because our assumption is always that the "sweet spot" is in the center right? I can tell you based on my personal experience with the SC I own that the alignment marker seems pretty close, and I can definitely tell the difference between heel and toe strikes. Perhaps it is just a feel thing and actual CoG is located elsewhere, but my best rolls come from that spot so that's where I'm going to try and strike the ball everytime.

Yes - No

Am sure more experienced Cameron connoisseurs will chime in, in my experience, if the are they are they are not off by much, I think for the OTR's to be dead on would be an extreme quality control undertaking.

My TEi3 is dead on, my centershafted prototype seems or "feels" to be off by about 1/4 inch or less, towards the toe, my brother-in-law think am on dope and says they are both dead on.

Make sense?

My first putter was a bronze Ping Anser reissue with the sound slot and no markings on top.  Sweet spot for the putter was slightly heel side.

Always seem to see the alignment marks dead centre on the putter head.  Always wondered how much the hosel, especially long plumber’s necks, could affect where the sweet spot is.

There is a looooong thread on this at the other site. Maybe 10 years ago?

Based on definitions in the SC site. The site line is an alignment aid. Site dots mark the sweet spot.

 

So it is possible to have a dot not in line with the site line.

I’ll tend to side w you on this. 1/4” May seem a bit extreme though. I’ve seen and have putters off maybe 1/8”.

I have a Scotty Cameron Monterey putter. The sweet spot seems to be a 1/8 towards the heel, not exactly on the black alignment line. 
 

sucks! 

I have a Monterey and an older Scotty..both have the sweet spot between 1/8 and 1/16 toward the heel.  Distracting at first, but I have finally gotten used to it.
