Thanks to everyone who sent in their putter questions for Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Kelley Moser. Last week, we posted the first batch of Kelley's answers, which covered several topics such as determining your proper putter length, working on the Titleist Tour Van and the new Scotty Cameron Select line. If you missed Part 1, you can watch it here.

We've posted more of Kelley's Q&A with Team Titleist below. Thanks again – we'll be sure to catch up with the Scotty Cameron team again in the near future.

Brent asks: How hard is it getting coming out with new stuff? Do you feel you are reaching the end with new designs and are going to focus more on materials and finishes?



Stuart C. asks:
I have been using a 34'' Newport 2.7H Studio Select for a few years and really like it. I am interested in the new 34'' Select Notchback and GoLo. How will they compare to the 2.7. Do I order the H version for the same feel?




Ben M. asks:
I noticed a lot of different colored cord no cord California grips on tour last year, and a few still this year, like on Gary Woodland's putter. Will these colored options ever be available to the general public?



Allen B. asks: How much heavier is a typical Tour player's Circle T compared to a stock Cameron?



Rick asks:
I like to take my putter straight back and straight through...should I use a putter with a center shaft?



Drew asks: How much will the swing weight be affected if I cut down a 48'' Kombi to 47''? Or should I custom order?



TITLEIST INTRODUCES SCOTTY CAMERON SELECT PUTTER FAMILY
Brand New Line Features Modern Blades, Mallets, Mid and Long Options
in a Tour-Validated Black Mist Finish


March 15, 2012 – Trusted by more players on the PGA TOUR since 1997 and counting, Scotty Cameron Fine Milled putters are designed and built with craftsmanship and performance in mind.  With his experience and innovative research from the Cameron Putter Studio in California, Scotty Cameron creates modern, yet timeless, putters to satisfy the best players in the world, as well as serious golfers with preferences for the highest quality and performance.

The brand new Scotty Cameron by Titleist Select line of putters is the culmination of Cameron’s Putter Studio research, combined with his desire to design and build the best putters in the world.  The new family includes five modern blade models (Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback, Newport 2.6), two mallets (GoLo, GoLo S), three mid lengths (Newport Two Mid, GoLo Mid, GoLo S Mid), and two long options (Big Sur, Big Sur S).  

The new Select putters feature a Deep Milled face that contributes to a softer feel and sound, as well as elegantly refined shapes and a Tour-validated Black Mist finish.  All are precision milled from soft, 303 stainless steel, with the exception being the Big Sur models that feature high grade milled aluminum heads.

“My ultimate goal when designing and building a putter is to provide the golfer pure putting confidence,” said Master Putter Craftsman Scotty Cameron.  “Whether it is for the best players in the world or golfers who aspire to play their best, the performance and preference options available in the new Cameron Select line are my deepest yet.  These putters have all been tour-validated, developed and refined through product and player research conducted at our state-of-the-art Cameron Putter Studio and on practice greens around the world.”

With the Select family, Cameron has taken “visual flow” to a new level.  When looking down at the putter in the address position, Cameron has designed the surfaces in the head to flow naturally into the ground.  The Select weighting system provides modern balance and stability and every Select putter is outfitted with a stepless steel shaft for a clean, unimpaired visual at address.  Select putters can be lie adjusted +/- 2 degrees off the standard 71 degrees and loft adjusted +/- 1 degree from the standard 4 degrees for even greater fine-tuning. 

The conventional models - the new Cameron Select Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback and Newport 2.6 putters - replace the Studio Select line.  The head features a rich, dark, glare free Black Mist finish with red dot graphics and red dot weights in the sole, and is covered with a new Cameron Select headcover.  The grip is a new Select black with a red dancing Cameron logo.  All standard right hand models are available in 33, 34 and 35 inch lengths, as well as 34H and 35H custom heavier weight configurations.

The GoLo Mallets and GoLo Mids replace the Studio Select Kombi Mallet and Kombi Mid lines.   The GoLo (single bend shaft) and GoLo S (straight shaft) feature an elegant rounded profile with Select weighting technology.  The slightly asymmetric back profile, contained cavity lines and pulled in heel encourage a flowing stroke along the ideal arc.  The bottom sole plate with internal rubber ring produces a great sound.  Two neck configurations allow the golfer to choose his preferred set up appearance and dynamic feel. 
The stock conventional length mallets are available in 33, 34 and 35 inches as well as 34H and 35H custom heavier weight configurations.  The Newport Two Mid, GoLo Mid and GoLo S Mid come in a standard length of 43” with custom lengths of 40-46” available.

The Select Big Sur and Big Sur S replace the Studio Select Kombi Long line in the Cameron putter family.  Both putters are constructed from aluminum, and feature a stainless steel center sole weight bar and triangulated stainless weights that provide exceptional balance.  They each feature a Cameron one-piece black grip, a Tour Black Mist plated finish, cherry dot graphics, cherry dot weights in the sole and a new Select Big Sur headcover.  The Big Sur and Big Sur S Long putters are available with a standard length of 49” and a lie angle of 79°, with lengths of 46-52” available through custom order.
 
In combination, all these different options allow golfers to choose a Cameron Select putter with the appearance they prefer, the length and weight they need, and a neck configuration that provides the proper amount of toe flow during the stroke.

Many of the world's best golfers are in Miami this week for the WGC-Cadillac Championship, the beginning of an unofficial five-week march to the Masters. That includes Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott (pictured below), who spent the practice days working on controlling his Pro V1 golf ball in Doral's blustery conditions.

 Adam is one of 41 Titleist golf balls players in the field this week, more than four times the nearest competitor with 10 and more than all competitors combined. Titleist is also first in iron sets (18); and sand, lob and approach wedges (62).

Check out all of Team Titleist's pics from the practice days, including a closer at some of the Titleist equipment being used to battle The Blue Monster this week, in the slideshow below.

  

Video: Practice Under Pressure



Team Titleist member Steve B. recently submitted the following question: "I'm a scratch player. I would like to know your thoughts on approaching a lower score? Not just making more birdies, but the whole game."

Titleist Brand Ambassador Greg Chalmers says to "practice how you're going to play under pressure as much as possible."

Check out Greg's full answer in the above video.

Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Kelley Moser's office is the Titleist Tour Van. And the practice green. (Well, about 30 practice greens.)

Kelley spends most of the year travelling around the country to PGA Tour events, working with players on the practice greens and building and tweaking Scotty Cameron putters inside the van.

Last week at The Honda Classic, Kelley took some time to answer putter questions sent in by members of Team Titleist and our Twitter followers.

We've posted several of those answers in the videos below. We'll be posting more of Kelley's Q&A soon here on the Titleist Tour Blog.

Brian asks: How many putters are you making adjustments to each week on Tour (loft, lie, length, grip)?



Guy asks:
What role does putter length have in the proper setup? I am 6' tall and I feel like my 35" putter is too long.



Many Team Titleist members are wondering...
When will the new Scotty Cameron Select putters be available?



Elliott asks: Since the putters have been on tour a while now, how have the black finishes on the Select line been holding up over time?



Kris L. asks:
What's the preferred head weight on Tour?



John W. asks:
What's the best thing about your job? Do you need an assistant?
