For many golfers, having a Scotty Cameron putter is an aspirational goal in their career. No other putter brand quite manages to hold the same reputation for quality, prestige and proven success.
Even the likes of Odyssey or Ping, who have won hundreds of pro events over decades as well as providing some of the most iconic designs and technologies we have seen in the putter industry, are held in quite the same regard.
Scotty Cameron's latest range of Phantom putters features 10 new models which have been redesigned with new shaping, enhanced alignment and improved sound and feel.
"Max Homa, Justin Thomas and tour players around the world have found success with Phantom putters, and we're constantly talking with them and learning more about what they want from their mallet."
"Recently, it's been alignment that has dominated those conversations. We've taken that feedback and designed the new Phantoms to give players useful, intuitive alignment features, not only with the sight dots and lines visible at address, but also with the overall shape of each model."
"Every aspect of the putter design is working together. Every angle has been refined to accentuate a down-the-line view, so the player has a clear and confident look at every putt.
Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron.
The ten new Phantom models are offered in four different shapes, with different neck and shaft configurations, and feature the following technologies:
- Alignment-infused designs: Based on tour player input, each model has a refined, alignment-promoting shape along with specific alignment cues that range from milled sight dots on the 5 and 7 models, to straight sight lines on the 9 models, and arrow-shaped lines on the 11 models.
Re-engineered multi-material construction: Each putter's face and body is made from 303 stainless steel and integrated with a 6061 aircraft aluminium flange and sole plate. The designs have been made more rigid, giving players more stability and a more solid feel while working with new optimised vibration damping technology.
Dual-milled face technology: Every face on the new putters features Scotty's dual-milled face technology, which was first introduced to golfers in the 2023 Super Select line. It provides a better sound and feel while combining deep-milled softness with the feedback and consistency of mid-milled putters.
- Custom-designed full contact grip: Each model features a new Full Contact paddle-style grip, which is uniquely shaped for more contact and comfort as well as improved face angle awareness thanks to its flat top surface. The chain link texture is also designed to provided reliable grip in all weather conditions.
Scotty Cameron Phantom X 2024 Putters
Designed with an update, slightly more compact shape with refined wing angles to improve alignment. The Phantom 5 features a tour-proven design and mid-bend shaft, new sight dot alignment and blade-like feel.
Features the same updated head shape of the 5 along with a jet neck for players who prefer the alignment features of a mallet, with the toe-flow of a blade.
Nearly face balanced with a straight shaft and zero offset, the 5s offers the same compact mallet shape as the other 5 putters, with an unobstructed view of the leading edge of the face at address.
With updated contours, slightly longer wings, new sight dot alignment and a subtle shift in shape for a straighter wing angle, the Phantom 7 emphasises alignment, stability and MOI with a mid-bend shaft.
Shares the same head shape and design of the 7, but incorporates a jet neck to promote a flowing stroke in a stable, high-MOI mallet.
Features a mid-bend shaft and a completely redesigned shape, which offers long sight lines or improved alignment with an angular profile to deliver forgiveness and feel along with high MOI.
The 9.5 model features the same shaping and alignment cues as the 9, but features a toe-flow promoting jet neck.
Completely redesigned from the sole up, the 11 is a face-balanced, multi-material high MOI mallet with a mid-bend shaft and new arrow alignment.
Features a low-bend shaft for moderate toe-flow, with the same alignment and MOI properties as the 11 but with a shaft design that helps the putter swing on a slight arc.
The same head shape as the 11 putter but comes as a 38-inch counterbalanced model, with a longer, heavier 17 inch pistol-style grip and stiffer mid-bend shaft to accommodate the heavier head, which features two 25 gram tungsten sole weights. The design is said to help golfers keep the hands more quiet for a stable, balanced stroke.
The new Scotty Cameron Phantom 5, 5.5, 5s, 7, 7.5, 9 and 9.5 models will be available from 29th March, with the Phantom 11, 11.5 and Phantom 11 Long Design available from 17th May, at an SRP of £429.
