FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (March 15, 2012) -- They say that timing is everything. In the case of the new Scotty Cameron by Titleist Select line of putters, time is all things.

With more than 12 years of innovative research and experience, the Cameron Putter Studio presents its newest line of putters, building upon Cameron's ability to craft only the best putters in the world. New for 2012 are five blade models (Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback and Newport 2.6), two mallets (GoLo and GoLo S), three mid-lengths (Newport Two Mid, GoLo Mid and GoLo S Mid) and two long options (Big Sur, Big Sur S).

The new line from Scott Cameron and Titleist fall in line with the modern, yet timeless models of the past that satisfy the top professional players in the world while also being a main choice among serious amateur golfers.

“My ultimate goal when designing and building a putter is to provide the golfer pure putting confidence,” said Master Putter Craftsman Scotty Cameron. “Whether it is for the best players in the world or golfers who aspire to play their best, the performance and preference options available in the new Cameron Select line are my deepest yet. These putters have all been tour-validated, developed and refined through product and player research conducted at our state-of- the-art Cameron Putter Studio and on practice greens around the world.”

All of the new Select putters include a Deep Milled face, which contributes to a softer feel and sound when putting, and --- save for the Big Sur models --- are milled from soft, 303 stainless steel. The Big Sur model's heads are made from high-grade aluminum. The Black Mist finish is preferred by the many PGA Tour players that use the Scotty Cameron line.

The most notable difference between the Select family of putters and the Studio Select line it replaces is in the "visual flow". When looking down at the putter at the address position, the Select family features designed surfaces in the head to flow naturally into the ground. The weighting system in the Select models provides an improved balance and stability and each putter includes a stepless steel shaft to help golfers' sightline at address.

Each putter can also be adjusted to lie (plus- or-minus two degrees) or loft (one degree) from the standardized figures.

The new line's conventional models --- Cameron Select Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback and the Newport 2.6 -- - set out to replace the former Cameron Studio Select line. Each new conventional putter features the unmistakable Black Mist finish with red dot graphics and weights in the sole, a,long with new Select black colored grip.

The GoLo Mallets and mid-sized putters are to replace the Studio Select Kombi Mallet and Kombi Mid lines, respectively. Both provide a rounded profile with Cameron's Select weighting technology.

The Select Big Sur and the Big Sur, of course, replace the Studio Select Kombi Long line with both putters built from aluminum and featuring a stainless steel center sole weight bar to help provide balance throughout the stroke.
