For our next highlight in the Team Titleist Year in Review, we check back on the story of the Scotty Cameron Futura X putter and its journey from Tour Prototype to a Major Championship.
This is the putter that inspired Scotty to create the Futura X and Futura X Dual Balance models, available now in golf shops worldwide.
Take a look back below and for some bonus coverage, check out these posts: Titleist Introduces New Scotty Cameron Futura X Mallet Putter and Introducing the New Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance Putter.

Masters champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott has been playing Scotty Cameron putters for over a decade. After numerous trips to the Putter Studio, he and Scotty came up with exactly what he needed in his quest to find the perfect putter for his setup.
Following several rounds of design, Scotty crafted the Futura X Prototype specifically for Adam. A one-of-a-kind putter for a one-of-a-kind player. It provides the high MOI (Moment of Inertia) and path that Adam was seeking. While the design of the putter creates a high MOI, Scotty took the putter one step further by adding more stability to the face with perimeter weighting. High MOI combined with perimeter weighting gives this putter a unique feel and performance.
The putter is milled from aluminum and includes a balance bar and four tungsten weights that are positioned under four adjustable stainless steel weights in the far four corners of the putter for maximum MOI. The putter is 49″ in length, has a 79* lie angle and 3* of loft. The finish is called “Frozen Titanium” and helps knock down glare.
And as the buzz continues to build on the putting greens around the PGA Tour, Scotty and his team continue to design more Futura X Prototype concepts and variations for other players. Titleist Brand Ambassador Jason Dufner is one of the players who was recently taking one of these prototypes out for a test drive.
