In a brand new limited release offering from Titleist comes the next generation of Scotty Cameron Champions Choice putters, which (we might add) look absolutely stunning. What can we expect? Four new “Button Back” models that expand upon the capabilities of Scotty’s recently-introduced “Plus” design.
According to Titleist: "Inspired by the putters Scotty has made for major winners and champions on the worldwide professional golf tours, each precision milled Champions Choice Button Back model is crafted with complementary materials – a solid precision milled 303 stainless steel putter head, an expertly-fused Teryllium insert and sleek aluminium sole component – to deliver outstanding performance and feel."
"The longstanding and continued history of major champions trusting Scotty Cameron putters – four of the last seven majors have been won by Scotty Cameron players – is commemorated with unique Champions Choice graphics, a new Pistolini Plus grip and custom headcover.
"In select Titleist golf shops worldwide beginning Friday, July 28, the new Champions Choice putters include the Newport Plus Button Back, Newport 1.5 Plus Button Back, Newport 2 Plus Button Back and Newport 2.5 Plus Button Back (also available in left-handed). Each putter features a solid milled 303 stainless steel body with a soft Teryllium inlay fused together with the iconic button head machine screws and Scotty’s latest vibration dampening technology."
About the new releases, Scotty Cameron said: “Recognising the demand for our original Champions Choice release in 2021, I had to do it again. But, of course, it had to be special. With the introduction of our new Super Select Plus models and the popularity of this new blade shape, it was a natural to create some unique Newport and Newport 2-style models for this seasonal release. I call the Plus width a “tweener” because it’s in between the size of a normal blade and our wider, Squareback 2 mid-mallets. Add the Teryllium in our Button Back design and these new Champions Choice Plus Button Back models celebrate the years of victory with our putters in four new designs built to look as good as they perform.”
2023 CHAMPIONS CHOICE MODELS
Four new Champions Choice models present golfers with two Plus-sized blade shapes, each offered with either a plumbing neck or a jet neck, in 33", 34" and 35" lengths:
Champions Choice Newport Plus Button Back: Crafted slightly wider than a standard Newport with an I-beam style plumbing neck and Teryllium insert, its 6061 aircraft grade aluminum sole plate is engineered into the precision milled 303 stainless steel putter head for proper balance, ideal weight distribution and higher MOI.
Champions Choice Newport 1.5 Plus Button Back: Based on the Newport Plus head shape, this model features an I-beam style jet neck for players favouring a naturally arced putting stroke. Its Teryllium inlay is fused to the 303 stainless steel putter head with vibration dampening technology and a three-button-head-screw configuration for outstanding feel and feedback.
Champions Choice Newport 2 Plus Button Back: Designed by working with the game’s best players at Scotty’s Putter Studio, the Plus models’ wider profiles were designed for players looking for a slightly bigger blade and even more confident alignment. Coupled with the feel of Teryllium, this tour proven model is a glimpse into the future of putter development.
Champions Choice Newport 2.5 Plus Button Back: Also offered in a left-handed version and based on the Newport 2 Plus head size, this model features an I-beam style jet neck for players creating a naturally arced putting stroke. Lending the Button Back style its name, three button head screws in conjunction with improved vibration dampening technology fuses the Teryllium inlay to the putter head.
The new Scotty Cameron Champions Choice putter models will be available worldwide on July 28, 2023, through select Titleist authorised golf shops. MAP: $700
