As I wrote about last week from the floor of the PGA Merchandise Show – Scotty Cameron is a rock star in golf. There was no formal meet & greet with the famed putter designer but throughout the show the California-based putter craftsman handled a non-stop line-up of autograph and photo seekers. And I mean..non-stop. From the show opening each day he was swamped with those seeking some time with him.
It’s not a problem for Cameron – this is a man who is passionate about his work and loves to talk about both the art & science of putter development.
Last week Titleist, the manufacturer of his putter designs, debuted the new Select putters and Scotty himself stepped away from the signature and selfie seekers for a few minutes to talk about them with us.
He explains the new insert philosophy, what he sees when designing a putter, how cars come into play for his numbering system, and shares what he is working on for 2017.
