TITLEIST EXTENDS POPULAR SCOTTY CAMERON STUDIO SELECT PUTTER LINE WITH INTRODUCTION OF NEW KOMBI MALLETS

Three Model Family is Available in Standard, Mid and Long Lengths

New Scotty Cameron Kombi

Fairhaven, MA (January 28, 2009) - Scotty Cameron by Titleist putters are tour-proven instruments of uncompromised feel, looks and performance.  Notably prominent across the worldwide professional tours, Cameron putters have been the top choice of more players and more winners on the U.S. PGA TOUR for more than a decade.  To further solidify its position as the market leader in the premium putter category, Titleist introduces the new Scotty Cameron Studio Select Kombi, a high performance line of mallet putters.

The Studio Select Kombi line is available in standard, mid and long length models – Kombi (33”, 34”, 35”), Kombi Mid (43”) and Kombi Long (50”).  Each Kombi is precision milled from lightweight 6061 Aircraft Aluminum and features Studio Select weighting technology.  Kombi putters incorporate a thick face and three-point weighting, that is, weights in the heel, toe and back.  The result is unmatched solid feel and sound in a mallet putter.  The combination of the three-point weighting technology and a deep CG produce a balanced putter that is stable throughout the stroke for forgiveness and great roll.

“The addition of the Kombi mallets to the Studio Select family of putters is the result of a combination of our work with players at the Putter Studio and on the practice greens across the worldwide professional tours,” said Scotty Cameron, Master Putter Designer, Titleist.  “We listen to their feedback and understand their preferences in a putter.  The new Kombi advanced mallet-style putters have been used and validated at the highest levels of competition.  Most importantly, they instill confidence, feel great and work perfectly for those players that need or prefer a mallet style putter.”

The Standard Kombi putter comes with circular weights in the heel and toe that allow for a variety of length and weight combinations to fit any putting stroke or style.  This flexibility makes it easy for golfers to choose a Kombi putter with the length and weight they require.  On the Kombi Mid and Long putters, the rear circular weight is replaced with a central bar weight to create the optimum head weight and balance for the longer lengths.

All Kombi putters feature a clean, double-bend stepless shaft with a full shaft of offset that provides an unobstructed look at address, while T-shaped, red ink sight lines provide precise alignment references on the topline and body.  A misted topline with a sight line along the rear edge reduces visual thickness and makes face alignment easy.  The Kombi offers a player-preferred shape and body size that flows into the ground from topline to rear.

Kombi putters are finished with Tour-inspired, bold red three-dot graphics and a red Cameron cord grip.  The grip on the Kombi Mid and Long is a 2-piece Split Red Cameron.  Each Studio Select Kombi putter includes a silver headcover with bold, red, Tour-inspired graphics.  The Studio Select Kombi and Kombi Mid feature 4 degrees of loft and 71 degrees of lie, while the Kombi Long offers 4 degrees of loft and a 79 degree lie angle.  All three models can be bent plus or minus 2 degrees.

“Different golfers require putters of different lengths, weights, body and neck configurations,” said Cameron.  “However, most putter heads are only weighted for 35-inch shafts and therefore, are much too light for shorter lengths, or too heavy for longer lengths.  Too often, the same heads are used in all lengths.  The result is the golfer having to hit at the ball instead of being able to stroke the ball, and that creates distance control problems.  The Kombi putter line delivers a wide range of specifications and options for players who prefer the advanced mallet design.”

ON TOUR:  Every year since 1997, Cameron putters have been the choice of more players and more champions on the PGA TOUR than any other brand.  This year is no different.  The Kombi putter is already in the bags of and having success with players on the 2009 PGA TOUR.  Both the Kombi Standard and Kombi Long were played at the Bob Hope Classic.

“The addition of the new Kombi models provides golfers with exceptional choices,” said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs.  “Along with the traditional blade-like Circa 62 line, the Studio Select Fastback and Squareback mid mallets, as well as the traditional Newport models, the advanced mallet design of the Studio Select Kombi provides golfers even more options and improves our strongest Scotty Cameron putter line ever for the better player.”
