Titleist has widened its flat-stick line-up with the introduction of the Scotty Cameron Select Roundback
Titleist has widened its flat-stick line-up with the introduction of the Scotty Cameron Select Roundback.
According to Titleist, the Roundback is a modern mid-mallet design with tour-validated balance and stability.
Like its counterparts, the Select Roundback has criss-cross sight lines, but its fully-rounded shape is a slightly different to the other two models.
The Squareback, unsurprisingly, has a boxed shape, while the Fastback has rounded corners.
All Scotty Cameron select putters are precision-milled to provide impressive looks, sound and feel.
Weights in the heel and toe are proportional to the shaft length for balance and stability, while an anodized aluminum sole-plate provides the base for a thicker, and more solid, steel face.
Select Roundback, Fastback and Squareback putters all feature vertical and horizontal sight lines on the back flange.
These are positioned directly between a golfer's eyes to help square the putter face at impact.
"Alignment is a huge trend on tour, and having multiple sight lines on a head works to benefit many golfers," said Scotty Cameron.
"If you have difficulty setting up to the ball and squaring the face at impact, this is a great option.
"If you set the putter too far forward, the criss-cross will make the face appear closed. If you put it too far back, it will look open."
The Select Roundback putter comes complete with a Scotty Cameron Pistolero grip, which is slightly larger than standard.
The Scotty Cameron Select Roundback putter goes on sale worldwide from March 3, 2015 with a RRP of £279.
