Who They’re For: Golfers with deep pockets who prioritize feel but want the performance and looks of classic heel-toe-weighted blades and mid-size mallets.

The Skinny: Modifications to stalwarts such as the Newport and Newport 2 will make purists happy, but the Plus versions for golfers who like a beefier blade and new milling technology could make this a popular option for a larger number of players.

The Deep Dive: Over the last few years, a lot of plans had to be, shall we say, adjusted to meet the demands and changes taking place in the world. Golf equipment has not been immune to this, and the Scotty Cameron Special Select line of putters, released in 2020 and intended to be in the marketplace for two years, wound up at retail for three instead.

However, now the update to the Special Select putter family is out: the Scotty Cameron Super Select putters.

Aesthetically, no significant changes were made to the base models. The Newport and Newport 2 are still heel-toe-weighted blades with a low profile, and the Fastback 1.5 blends a Newport and a mallet. Cameron aficionados will notice those putters have a modified neck that Cameron refers to as an “I Beam” that reduces weight.

What is new, however, is the addition of Plus versions of Newport and Newport 2, along with the addition of the Newport 2.5 Plus.

The Plus versions of each putter have the same blade length as the standard models, and they also have adjustable weights in the heel and toe area of the sole to allow fitters to adjust the club’s swing weight easily. What makes them different is a wider back flange, which gives them a more solid look in the address position. They also have some 303 stainless steel removed from the center of the sole, with the hole being covered by a 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum plate. Removing steel and putting aluminum in its place shifts more of the overall weight to the perimeter, so the Plus models are not only larger, they have a significantly higher, mallet-level moment of inertia and stability.
