The new Scotty Cameron Special Select putter line blends timeless designs with modern craftsmanship in eight precision-milled blade and mid-mallet set-ups to deliver tour-validated performance.
Inspired by the classic, solid milled designs that master putter maker Scotty Cameron crafted for tour players, the Special Select putters feature sleeker head profiles with thinner and flatter toplines, refined neck configurations, soft tri-soles and performance-balanced weighting. Each putter has been completely reworked, including the classic Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 blade styles. A refined Del Mar joins the new Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5 and Flowback 5.5 mid-mallet models.
“I’m always inspired by the putters that result from working directly with the best players in the world,” said Cameron. “With Special Select, I wanted to get back to the pure-milled shapes and faces that I’ve been crafting for tour players for over two decades now.
“We’ve brought those designs into the modern era with new set-ups, necks, faces, grips and weights. Every aspect of every putter has been redone. When it all came together, it was pretty special.”
Performance & Technology
Special Select putters are meticulously crafted to provide pure performance and feel through these key features:
Tour-inspired shapes: Sleeker putter head profiles with thinner, flatter toplines deliver confidence-inspiring looks preferred by tour professionals.
Solid milled stainless steel construction: Every Special Select is milled in the United States from a block of solid 303 stainless steel for superb performance and playability, with consistent sound and soft feel.
Soft tri-sole design: The blade models are milled with a tour-inspired soft tri-sole design. This self-soling feature promotes a proper set-up at address while providing a stable, aesthetically pleasing view of the topline.
Performance balanced weighting: New performance balanced weighting expands on the use of interchangeable sole weights to tune the performance and feel of putters at all lengths. By directing more weight to the heel and toe, the sweet spot is enlarged and stability is enhanced without compromising feel or each model’s unique toe flow properties. The blades feature new tungsten sole weights which allow for ultra-sleek, tour-validated shapes with larger sweet spots. The mid-mallets employ stainless steel sole weights for optimal balance and weight distribution.
Refined neck configurations: Each putter neck style has been revamped based on an intense study in neck configurations. Newport, Newport 2 and Squareback 2 feature a slightly shorter plumbing neck for medium toe flow, with a newly-defined socket radius subtly repositioned with onset to provide clearer visibility of the leading edge. Newport 2.5 and Fastback 1.5 both have a refined, toe flow-promoting small slant neck, while the rounded Flowback 5.5 comes with a new slantback neck for similar strokes. The heel-shafted Del Mar’s flow neck is designed for maximum toe flow. The GoLo-inspired Flowback 5 limits toe flow with a more traditional mid-bend, shaft-over-spud set-up.

Special Select Models
Three blade models and five mid-mallet options have been developed for every stroke style.
Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 models feature an insert-free, solid milled 303 stainless steel head with performance balanced tungsten sole weighting for a larger sweet spot and increased stability. Flatter and thinner toplines, milled flange sight lines, soft tri-soles and redesigned plumbing (Newport, Newport 2) and small slant (Newport 2.5) neck styles round out these timeless blade designs.
A classic name returns with the new Special Select Del Mar in an updated heel-shafted, compact mallet model. Precision milled from solid 303 stainless steel, the new Del Mar features refined concave flange contours and a narrower, flatter topline, along with customisable stainless steel sole weights. A left-handed model is also available.
The new Special Select Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5 and Flowback 5.5 mid-mallets combine 6061 aircraft aluminium sole plates for optimal weight distribution with solid milled faces and interchangeable stainless steel sole weights. Each has a specific neck style – Fastback 1.5 (small slant), Squareback 2 (plumbing), Flowback (mid-bend shaft-over-spud) and Flowback 5.5 (slantback) – to facilitate better leading edge visibility as well as desired toe flow properties.
A new Pistolini Plus grip in cement grey with distinctive white lettering retains the Pistolini shape with a slightly built up lower hand profile. This complements an elegantly embroidered, red abrasion-resistant Special Select head cover.
The Special Select line’s raw stainless steel finish is given a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare-resistant appearance. The signature three red dot pattern on the back cavity has a new look, with each dot milled with a recessed circular channel, polished and then hand-painted with cherry red translucent paint – creating a striking new ‘cherry rings’ feature.
