The West Coast Swing has swung over to the desert this week and our putter reps are on the scene getting the best in the world geared up for this week’s event, which is already underway. I’m very excited with the response I’m getting from the new Studio Select putters on Tour, and I look forward to seeing more wins.
I’ve created a centershaft prototype that you can take a look at here in the slideshow. I’ve also included some shots from the practice green over at the FBR. Thanks for checking in and I hope you like what you see.

I was presented with an unexpected gift today. Our one millionth pivot tool has been milled. Can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday that my daughter and I were playing around with this prototype ball mark repair tool on the greens at La Costa. Now, there are a million out there. Just awesome. To commemorate the milestone, the guys gave me this gold one. I probably won’t game it. I’ll send it to Fukuda San to display in the Museum. Just thought I’d share it with you. Take care.

Just wanted to let you know that we’ve got a new video loaded and ready for your viewing pleasure at ScottyCameron.com. You’ll see some of the behind-the-scenes work I did when creating the putters for the show down in Orlando, as well as some commentary from the Vog. Enjoy!

Well, it’s back to work bigtime here at the Putter Studio this week, as the PGA Tour is in town for the Buick. We’ve had a few of the best in the business through the Studio already, and I’ve been busy in the back making new putters for the pros.
Before I get too buried here, I just wanted to share some shots from last week’s trip to Orlando. It was truly a great gathering of friends. I love seeing you guys at these outings, so please accept my sincere appreciation for your loyalty, support and friendship throughout the years. Looking forward to seeing you down the road. Thanks again for everything!

It’s been a number of years since I’ve made the trek to Orlando for the annual PGA Merchandise Show. I’ve been busy at the Putter Studio making Garage & Graffiti putters, playing with new finishes, stamps, necks, bends, grinds, welds and more and I’m anxious to share some of my recent work.
So, I’ve decided to hand-deliver some of my newest creations to my friends the Butlers at the Table Rock Booth. I’ll be there around 1pm on Friday, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello. I’ve put together a little sneak preview here of some of the things I’m taking with me.

I am very proud of what we’ve created here at the Custom Shop. Not only do we design, mill, stamp and finish putters to our touring professionals’ exact specifications, but we can also perform major overhauls for everyday players on putters that in any other situation could be complete write-offs.
Take for example this putter sent in by a local San Diego family. As you’ll see in the slideshow, their house was burned to the foundation in last year’s wildfires. It was a devastating loss, but thankfully they were safely evacuated and no one in their family was injured.
This particular Teryllium Santa Fe was a Christmas present for the family’s son, Kyle. It had already been restored and was in mint condition, resting comfortably in its hiding place until the holiday. When the evacuation orders came in late October, the family had to pack and leave in a hurry, hoping that the flames would spare their house. They were one of the unlucky families who would learn that the fire took nearly everything.
When they came back to sift through the rubble, the putter was blackened, bent and seemingly a total loss. The mother was heartbroken for her son, who was hoping to receive this putter for Christmas. After an email to the Custom Shop, she was relieved to learn that, in fact, the putter could be brought back to life.
Of course this story, and so many like it in San Diego, touched us here at the Custom Shop. So, we hustled to get it done before Christmas. In the grand scheme of things for this family, it was a little bit of hope during an extremely challenging time. We were happy to do this for them, and we hope that Kyle enjoys his Teryllium Santa Fe for years to come.

It’s been a busy week over here at the Sony Open, as the field has expanded to normal Tour levels after the winners-only field at Kapalua. Thought we may get a win with the new Squareback Xperimental Prototype over in Maui…here’s to one soon. Maybe this week!
It’s great catching up with loyal putter players, and I especially love surprising them with the latest Hula Girl headcover. Check out some shots from this week’s event here on the Blog by clicking on the thumbnail picture below, and also head over to ScottyCameron.com for more images from Oahu. Thanks for checking in.

Just wanted to let you know that all is well in the islands. I had a busy few days catching up with the pros, as well as introducing my new putters to them. As of this writing, Titleist ambassador Nick Watney was leading with a new Scotty Cameron Newport Squareback XperimentalÂ Prototype. Go, Nick!

Happy New Year, friends! I hope your holiday season was filled with great times, happiness and health.
Just checking in from Tour in Hawaii to let you know that not only am I back to work in full force, but we also have the 2008 Club Cameron memberships available. The kits will ship within 4-6 weeks, but if you’re looking to re-new your membership, you can right now. I hope you like the new items!
Thanks for stopping by the Blog. I should also have some pictures up from Kapalua real soon. Aloha!
