Charley Hoffman’s Putter: Cameron Red X

Cameron Red X3 PutterCharley Hoffman fended off the field with a brilliant final round score of 62 to win the Deutsche Bank Championship on Sunday.

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.
