With the annual PGA Merchandise Show just around the corner, PutterZone.com takes you inside the ropes of this golf gear extravaganza for a sneak peek at the show’s 2010 putters.
We begin this PGA Merchandise Show preview series with the new Cameron California putters, brought to you by Scotty Cameron by Titleist. These putters have just been released at a street price of $299.
The name Scotty Cameron needs no introduction in putter circles. With the new California line, the famed putter designer invokes the names of four of the Golden State’s classic coastal destinations (two of which PutterZone.com has happily called home):
Cameron Coronado Putter: Blade putter with a smooth, double-step flange and flow neck with a half shaft offset. The Coronado features an engraved site dot on the topline.
Cameron Monterey Putter: A blade body with smooth double-step flange with a back pocket and engraved site line, and a plumbing neck hosel with a full shaft of offset.
Cameron Sonoma Putter: A compact mallet with a D-shaped back flange and sight line, and a plumbing neck hosel with a full shaft of offset.
Cameron Del Mar Putter (pictured above): A heel shafted mid mallet design with engraved sightline on the back flange, and a flow neck hosel with a half shaft offset.
Each California putter is milled from 303 stainless steel and fitted with circular weights in the heel and toe for optimized swingweights, depending on putter length. Each Cameron California putter also boasts a “Honey Dipped” finish, a natural bronze finish that comes from a heat-treated process that is part of the head manufacturing process.
Stay tuned to PutterZone.com this week as we continue our previews of 2010 putters that will be featured at the PGA Merchandise Show in January.
