Scotty Cameron may be better known for his blade putters which have been used in countless major successes over the last couple of decades, most notably by Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka.
However you only have to watch live golf on TV or even check out the gear being used by amateur golfers every weekend, to see that there has been a shift in recent years with large numbers of golfers opting to use mallet heads for the added forgiveness they provide.
Back in 2019, Scotty Cameron introduced the Phantom X line of mallet putters, and they have now received another upgrade with four new models that are directly inspired by the demands of tour players.
Working with our game's best players gives me great perspective into what they are looking for in a mallet putter. From the types of metals used to the subtle changes in shaft bends, these new Phantom X models offer brand new, highly requested options that build on our most popular models from 2020.
Scotty Cameron, Master Craftsman
The new Scotty Cameron Phantom X Putter range for 2021 include the following new models:
Phantom X 5
This features a full re-design, with a solid milled 303 stainless steel face which is carried through to the body and wings, integrated with an aluminium sole piece and stainless steel sole weight.
This is designed to be similar to past Futura models, with a more compact profile and wingback shape. The putter is nearly face balanced, and has a single bend shaft and sight line on top. There are darker alignment features in the flange, which helps to provide a more simple setup and inspire confidence at address.
Phantom X 5.5
The 5.5 is built as a very close replica used by Justin Thomas en route to multiple PGA Tour victories. It includes the smaller slant neck preferred by JT, as well as the same overall sizing and material makeup.
The putter has a milled sight line on the toppling and is designed to promote toe flow with more stability.
Phantom X 11
This shares design similarities with the wingback Phantom X 12 and the new Phantom X 5. The face and body is precision milled from 303 stainless steel, along with an aluminium sole component to optimise weight distribution.
The Phantom X 11 has a sleek profile and 'swept-back' trimmed wings, with a clean top line and darker visual alignment cues. There is a mid-bend shaft to minimise face rotation throughout the stroke, along with customisable stainless steel sole weights.
Phantom X 11.5
The 11.5 is almost identical to the Phantom X 11 apart from the shaft configuration, and adds another compact mallet option to the Phantom X range.
The low-bend shaft is designed to encourage greater toe flow, whilst the new solid face and body provides extra stability. This steeples steel design is aimed down the target line, for more of a blade-like feel during the putter stroke.
The new Scotty Cameron Phantom X putters will be available worldwide from March 26th, and are priced at an SRP of £389 each.
