As one report put it, “Charley Hoffman was rolling in so many putts Monday, he lost track of how many birdies he made.”
Charley Hoffman’s putter is the Scotty Cameron Red X mallet. The original Red X putter first appeared on the PGA Tour back in 2004.
Different iterations were subsequently released, but the Cameron Red X family is no longer in production. Hoffman’s putter appears to be the Red X3 model, which features a charcoal mist finish, single sight line and an aluminum sole plate for enhanced internal weighting. The putter is milled from 303 stainless steel and features a single-bend shaft.
According to stats tallied recently by reader Ben Janusch, this is the 12th win for a Cameron putter on the PGA Tour in 2010, which makes Cameron second only to Odyssey (by a margin of one) in PGA Tour victories so far this year. Looks like it will be a fight to the finish for the 2010 victory crown.
Considering that Tiger Woods plays a Cameron and Mickelson plays an Odyssey, it will be interesting to see if either one of them plays a role in the putter win count down the stretch.
