Fairhaven, Massachusetts, United States: Scotty Cameron has added a new teardrop-shaped, heel-shafted mid-mallet to his iconic Select line of putters – the Select Newport 3.
Trusted by many of the world’s best players, Select putters blend precision milled Scotty Cameron craftsmanship with advanced multi-material constructions and innovative face inlay technology to deliver Tour-validated performance with unmatched feel and feedback.
Available in golf shops from March 17, the new Select Newport 3 extends the popular line with a model designed for players seeking a smaller round mallet with additional toe flow and forgiveness:
- The heel-shafted mid-mallet, based on the classic Newport head shape, is designed with a flow neck (with ¾-inch offset) for players that need maximum toe flow in their stroke.
- Multi-material technology – featuring a precision milled, lightweight 6061 aircraft grade aluminium face inlay fused to the precision-milled 303 stainless steel body – distributes weight for higher MOI performance. This multi-material design combines with Cameron’s Tour-proven heel-and-toe sole weighting technology to increase stability and forgiveness throughout the stroke.
- A built-in vibration dampening system connects the milled aluminium face inlay with the stainless steel body, producing a responsive feel and feedback that Cameron describes as ‘soft, but solid’.
“Fans of our classic, heel-shafted mallets, like the Del Mar 3.5 and the GOLO 3, will love the melt-into-the-ground, flowing lines of the Newport 3,” said Cameron.
“When you look at the entire Select family, the Newport 3 is the perfect, curvy small mallet that just fits in conceptually between the Newport 2 Notchback and the mallets.
“We’ve extended the methodology of our proven multi-material technology to include the aircraft grade aluminium inlay, which allows me to design more of the weight into the sculpted back flange, as well as get the sweet feel the inlay produces. The result is an extension to the Select family that pulls together the entire line.”
Like every putter in the Select line, the Newport 3 features advanced stability weighting with two removable, customisable stainless steel heel-toe weights, a stepless steel shaft engineered for optimal flex and performance, and a supple Red Matador Mid-size grip developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel.
Select putters come with a raw stainless steel finish called Silver Mist, which involves a unique glass bead blast for a radiant, yet glare resistant, appearance.
Additionally, the Tour-inspired graphics blend the familiar three bright red translucent ‘cherry bombs’ with engraved typography that represents this modern, high-tech line.
