The Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X putter will be available Aug. 1 at a suggested retail price of $375.
The Futura X is a high MOI, modern mallet design with what the company says features an advanced perimeter weighting that provides better stability and forgiveness with solid feel.
The Futura X is the result of Cameron’s work with Titleist staff player Adam Scott, who used a prototype version of the putter in winning the 2013 Masters Tournament. Scott has been using Cameron putters for more than a decade.
The Futura X is precision milled from high grade 6061 aluminum and combines a rear balance bar with deep heel-toe weights plus perimeter weighting under the face. The resulting deep CG, Titleist says, provides stability throughout the stroke, while the perimeter weighting adds forgiveness and solid feel.
“I like to describe Futura X as a lethargic putter, for those golfers that need a slow, steady stroke that doesn’t jump around a lot,” Cameron said. “It’s the perfect design for Adam, and will give confidence to all golfers that want stability during the stroke and less hand manipulation.”
Futura X features four stainless heel-toe weights, two 20-gram weights on the rear balance bar and two adjustable sole weights (configured depending on the length) in the front corners of the putter under the face.
The overall headweight of Futura X is 20 grams heavier than a standard Cameron Select putter, resulting in a swingweight of E8. However, Cameron said, since much of the weight is located behind the axis of the shaft and not directly under the golfer’s hands, the Futura X feels stable but not heavy during the stroke.
“Futura X is what I call a ‘force balanced’ design,” Cameron said. “While the putter has a near-face balanced shaft configuration that would normally produce a slight toe hang, there’s so much weight off the back of the putter that it forces the face to hang flat. The rear balance bar allows us to add considerable weight a fairly long distance away from the shaft axis, which is really what drives the high MOI.”
Futura X will be available in standard lengths of 33, 34 and 35 inches, with Futura Mid and Long putters available through custom order only.
