Titleist Introduce the new Scotty Cameron GOLO putters

January 22, 2015

Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron continues to advance the art and science of putting with his new line of GOLO mallet putters. New Scotty Cameron GOLO putters are advanced, innovative multi-material designs featuring a lightweight aluminium face-sole core surrounded by a stainless steel frame that delivers improved MOI for increased stability and forgiveness.



The steel frame is seamlessly connected to the aluminium face-sole core at five key points with new vibration dampening technology that delivers the softest feeling Cameron putter in recent years. The steel body has a Silver Mist finish that elegantly contrasts with the dark anodised aluminium face-sole core that pops through the top to create a sightline field on the back flange for easy alignment. Four-way relief on the sole prevents snagging for a smooth takeaway.

Available in golf shops from the 3rd of April, the new GOLO line includes four models, allowing players to choose their preferred appearance:

• GOLO 3, a mid-mallet with a heel shafted flow neck;

• GOLO 5, an angled back mallet with a crisp single bend shaft;

• GOLO 5R, a rounded back mallet with a crisp single bend shaft; and

• GOLO 6, a B-back mallet with a crisp single bend shaft.

A new GOLO 5 Dual Balance model is available for those players who prefer the GOLO mallet head but need maximum stability in their stroke.

“The GOLO line has been around for three years now, and it’s won a lot of golf tournaments with some of the best players in the world,” said Cameron, whose putters have been the choice of more players on the PGA Tour since 1997 and counting. “But there are always ways to learn and do things better.”

“We’ve moved in today’s technology, machining and computer systems and taken everything we’ve learned on tour to create an even better GOLO. The new models have better feel, better sound, better alignment and better overall performance. It’s the next wave of construction technology – and it’s simply better. Nobody else has done what we’ve done with this line.”

ADVANCED PERIMETER WEIGHTING FOR STABILITY AND FORGIVENESS:

New GOLO putters are designed with a lightweight aluminium face-sole core milled from aircraft-grade aluminium that integrates with a precision-milled 303 stainless steel frame. This construction enhances the weighting around the perimeter, producing high MOI for stability throughout the stroke. Customisable heel and toe weights in the face-sole core help provide forgiveness at impact.

“The goal of the design was to move the weight out of the midsection and enhance the perimeter weighting like a horseshoe around the outside to create higher moment of inertia and increase the resistance to twist,” Cameron said. “So the more we can get a horseshoe, getting the weight out and back, the better off we are on off-centre hits.”

NEW FACE-SOLE CORE CONSTRUCTION:

The face-sole core is a single piece of dark anodised lightweight aluminium that comprises the GOLO’s sole and midsection, wraps up and around to create the face and pops through the flange to create the sightline field. The aluminium forms the entire putter face, as opposed to a traditional face insert that occupies only a specific centre section of the face.

“I’d always wondered, with a conventional insert,” Cameron said, “if you hit it thin – which is very common considering putting surfaces are rarely level – do you hit the portion of the putter face below the insert? And how does that affect the feel and performance? Inserts are used for feel, not for performance. But performance is, in part, due to feel. So, I thought, why not just take the seam out? The insert is now the entire face, which wraps under and into the sole.”

SOFT SOUND AND SEAMLESS FEEL:

GOLO putters utilise new vibration dampening technology to achieve a seamless integration of the aluminium core and steel frame. Internal vibration dampeners in five strategic locations preserve the benefits of the aluminium, providing golfers with a softer feel and sound across the putter face.

“We now have the softest feeling putter we’ve ever had in the GOLO line,” Cameron said. “With the new vibration dampening system, when we put the two pieces together the aluminium actually does not touch the stainless steel. It’s very slick.”

FOUR-WAY SOLE RELIEF:

The soles of the new GOLO models are designed with enhanced relief in four directions, front-to-back and heel-to-toe. “This is quite unique. We now have relief all the way around the sole, so it sits on the dead centre,” Cameron said. “Hardly ever are you on a flat surface on a putting green, so we made the draft angles perfect in each direction, front-to-back, heel-to-toe, so that you’re not going to snag the ground.”

PROFILE AND PERFORMANCE CHOICES:



The new GOLO line offers golfers the choice of four models with different shapes and sizes.

GOLO 3 is a modern mid-mallet with a heel-shafted neck that provides maximum toe flow. “I’ve thickened things up on the new GOLO 3 model, made it a little more blocky, a little more modern, a little more high-tech,” Cameron said.
