Scotty Cameron California Series Putters: video review

Published:

Scotty Cameron’s new line of California Series putters have been launched with a brand new Sea Mist finish to replace the honey dip finish on the previous line.

The new range features five models – Del Mar, Fastback, Monterey, Monterey 1.5, and Sonoma, that are characterised by blade and mid-mallet style heads with five different neck styles.

The California putters also feature deeper, more aggressive milling in the face of the putter for a softer sound at impact.

Precision milled from soft 303 stainless steel, the Cameron California putters are fitted with circular weights in the heel and toe that allow each model to be offered at 33”, 34” and 35” lengths, as well as 34”H and 35”H heavier weight configurations. Each putter features a draft sole design that keeps the putter square in the playing position for proper alignment and a high toe set-up that reduces the tendency for players to raise the toe and aim left of target.  In addition, California putters can be lie adjusted +/- 2 degrees off the standard 71 degrees for even greater fine-tuning.

Del Mar: A heel shafted mid mallet for maximum toe flow during the stroke. Designed with a single sightline on the back flange and a flare neck hosel with a ¾ shaft offset. Available in both right and left hand.

Fastback: A modified Newport-style mid mallet design featuring a more compact head, heel-to-toe, with a rounded back flange, three sight lines and a single bend shaft with a full shaft of offset.  The Fastback is a near face-balanced putter with minimum toe flow.  Formerly offered in the Studio Select line, the Fastback replaces the Hollywood in the California line. Available in right hand only.

Monterey: A blade body with smooth double-step flange with a back pocket and single site line, the Monterey features a plumbing neck hosel with a full shaft of offset for medium toe flow. Available in both right and left hand.

Monterey 1.5: A blade body with smooth double-step flange with a back pocket and single site line, the Monterey 1.5 features a medium flare neck hosel with a ¾ shaft offset for near-maximum toe flow. The Monterey 1.5 replaces the Coronado model in the California line. Available in right hand only.

Sonoma: A compact mid-mallet with a D-shaped back flange and sight line. The Sonoma features a round flow neck with ¾ shaft of offset for medium toe flow. Available in right hand only.

The California Series putters carry an RRP of £278.
