Scotty Cameron Phantom Putter Review

Welcome back to our blog! Today, we are going to take a closer look at the new Scotty Cameron Phantom putter.

The Scotty Cameron Phantom range is one of the most popular ranges of putters out there. With ten models in the new range, including the long design model set to be released in the middle of May, these putters are definitely worth considering.

What’s New with the Scotty Cameron Phantom Putter?

When it comes to putters, Scotty Cameron doesn’t make drastic changes. However, the design of the new Phantom putters does have some noticeable differences. The sight line has been improved with the addition of dots and lines, making it easier for golfers to align their shots. The feel of the putter remains consistent with the Scotty Cameron feel, thanks to the stainless steel face. Overall, the Scotty Cameron Phantom putter is visually appealing and well-built.

One notable change in the new models is the grip. While some golfers may prefer the traditional winn style grip, Scotty Cameron has opted for a rubber grip this time. The grip has a unique shape and ensures complete contact, but its unconventional design may not be to everyone’s liking.

Taking the Scotty Cameron Phantom Putter for a Spin

Now, let’s talk about how the Scotty Cameron Phantom putter performs on the green. We had the opportunity to try out the 5.5 and 9.5 models. The new 9.5 model caught our attention with its wing-back design, reminiscent of Batman. The slightly smaller head of the 9.5 model appealed to us, as we were used to playing with the 5.5 model. When we placed the putters on the ground, they sat nicely and looked sleek, just as we would expect from a Scotty Cameron putter.

Initially, the grip didn’t feel fantastic, but after a few putts, it started to grow on us. However, it’s essential to note that these putters come with a hefty price tag. At £429, they are not cheap. Although some competitor brands have brought down prices, Scotty Cameron has maintained its premium positioning. But if the putter delivers on performance, the price may be justified.

When it comes to feel, it can be subjective. As a golfer, we enjoyed putting with the standard mil face, which aligns with our personal preferences. The Scotty Cameron Phantom putter offers a great feel that complements our putting style. However, it’s important to remember that feel varies from golfer to golfer, so it’s best to try out different putters and see what works for you.

Customisation and Price

Scotty Cameron putters don’t offer extensive customisation options. While there are a few length options (33, 34, and 35), the grip and other aspects remain relatively unchanged. Additionally, most Scotty Cameron putters are pre-built in the US and imported into the UK. Therefore, customisation is limited.

Now, let’s discuss the price. The Scotty Cameron Phantom putter is priced at £429, which is considerably higher than many competitors in the market. While other brands, like Odyssey and TaylorMade, offer similar high-tech features at a lower price point, Scotty Cameron maintains its premium image. It’s essential to consider if the performance justifies the price tag.

Overall Performance and Conclusion

When it comes to performance, the Scotty Cameron Phantom putter offers a wide range of options with its seven different models. From alignment aids to different head designs, there is something for everyone. The overall performance of the putter is impressive, particularly for those who prefer the Scotty Cameron style. However, it’s crucial to compare it with other options in the market, such as the Odyssey AI range or the TaylorMade Spider, which offer similar features at a lower price.

In conclusion, the Scotty Cameron Phantom putter is a fantastic upgrade from the original Phantom range. Its sleek design, consistent feel, and range of options make it a top choice for many golfers. However, the high price point may deter some buyers. It’s crucial to consider your budget and try out different putters to find the one that suits your preferences and helps improve your putting game. Remember, confidence plays a significant role in putting, so choose a putter that makes you feel comfortable and confident on the greens.
