Scotty Cameron Phantom

We tested: Scotty Cameron’s Phantom putter

Our take: Scotty Cameron might have earned his reputation with blade putters, but he’s furthered it with the Phantom X line of mallets. Don’t just take our word for it — shortly after release, the Phantom X’s large head snuck its way into the bag of major champ Justin Thomas (where it has remained ever since). The Phantom X is a forgiveness favorite, with a high-MOI head helping to provide next-level stability at impact, even on off-center hits. And with the Scotty Cameron name attached, precision and distance control are but foregone conclusions.

Inspired by fast cars and fighter jets, the mid-mallet shape is compact and high-tech with sharp, alignment-promoting angles with soft-sculpted contours that appear to melt into the ground so the putter never appears “stuck” behind the ball.

The details: Control freaks, rejoice! With four different heads and three different shaft types, Scotty Cameron’s Phantom X line takes adaptability to the next level. Each individual model provides golfers with slight but noticeable shifts in MOI, face stability and weighting, providing a tailored fit for mallet-lovers of all shapes and sizes. Every model is precision-milled and constructed using stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum for improved perimeter weighting.

Scotty Cameron Special Select

We tested: Scotty Cameron’s Special Select putters

Our take: For basketballs, there’s Spalding. For footballs, there’s Wilson. And for putters, there’s Scotty. Scotty Cameron’s blades and mid-mallets have been golf’s gold standard for the better part of three decades, a tradition continued with the Special Select. Simple, elegant, and loaded with feel, this is the preferred putter of golf’s best players … and has been for some time.

Special Select putters are inspired by the professional tours with sleeker profiles and thinner, flatter toplines that deliver confidence and a pleasing look at address preferred by the best players in the world.

The details: Milled from a solid block of 303 signature steel, the Special Select line is crafted for precision. Thinner toplines, refined neck configurations, soft tri-soles and performance-balanced weighting highlight a package built for elite performance. Golfers can pick from eight styles split across two design philosophies: the Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 blade styles; and Del Mar, Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5 and Flowback 5.5 mid-mallet models.
