Well, I have wondered that since last fall when I got my new 718AP2's. Now a Scotty ain't cheap so its not something you might rush into, as I myself did not. But as you see in my other posts my Fiance bought me one last week and yesterday I went and took it for a test drive. I also took my old face balanced putter and decided to do a comparison. I did 3 comparisons with 15 balls each. First was same position same hole 15 balls each putter. The second test was set in the center of 3 holes, 5 balls at each hole ( 3 different lengths, slopes etc) with 15 balls in total for each putter. And thirdly was chipping and putting at holes, with 3 holes, 5 balls each from 3 different wedges and then finish them off with a putt. my results were quite eye-opening to me.
1st test, Old putter sank 2/15 putts, Scotty 8/15 putts
2nd test, Old putter 3/15 putts, Scotty 8.5/15 (1 lip out)
3rd test, Old putter 2/15, Scotty 9.5( sank 8, 3 lip outs)
My Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2 has MORE Control, More Feel, BETTER Balanced, GREATER Accuracy, and on and on and on. So if you yourself have ever wondered whether its worth it or not? or if it will help your game? I am here to tell you it is, 100% worth it.
