SCOTTY CAMERON 2017 FUTURA PUTTERS T he 2017 Futura line from Scotty Cameron delivers on the putter maker’s idea of high quality putters with innovative technology. Consisting of seven mallet-style designs ranging from rounded mid-mallets to high- tech, high moment of inertia larger mallets, the models are identifiable by numbers (5, 6 and 7) and letters, with larger numbers indicating larger head size. Combining the best characteristics of the previous GOLO and Futura X lines with innovative multi-material construction has produced improved stability and forgiveness without sacrificing feel and feedback. Aircraft-grade aluminium is used in the wrap-around face-sole design, allowing larger putter heads, while the milled stainless steel moves weight to the back and the perimeter of the putter heads for increased stability. The two materials are connected with a vibration dampening system that helps to produce a “soft, but solid feel,” according to Cameron. The Futura line is designed with input from tour players and Cameron said of the influence “what we prove on Sundays on the worldwide professional golf tours goes into every putter we bring to market.” Each putter comes with two removable weights for optimal weighting at different lengths and is fitted with a Black Matador Mid-size grip. The 6M model is available in Dual Balance, which features a heavier head, counterweight at the grip end and 15 inch Dual Balance grip. E 'SOFT, BUT SOLID FEEL' Available March 17; SRP: $569; $589 (Dual Balance). www.titleist.com.au THE GEAR VIDEO: SCOTTY CAMERON TALKS ABOUT THE CREATION OF FUTURA PUTTERS
