Scotty Cameron Detour Newport 2.5 Putter

By Lawrence Malestic

Titleist is one of the biggest names in golf, and the fact that it puts its name on Scotty Cameron's putters is a testament to the quality of them. The Scotty Cameron Detour Newport 2.5 was another in a lineage of professional grade putter and remains available on the secondary golf market. 


Scotty Cameron cut his design teeth working for the Ray Cook Golf Club Company, Maxfli, Cleveland Golf, Founders Club and Mizuno. In 1992 he started his own company. The gamble paid off quickly and handsomely, as Bernard Langer used a Scotty Cameron putter to win the 1993 Masters. Shortly thereafter, Titleist contacted the club maker and the two formed a partnership in 1994.

The Technology

The Scotty Cameron Detour Newport 2.5 infuses innovative Detour technology, which promotes an arc-shaped putting path. Cameron maintains a firm belief that the best putters in the world use an inside, to square, to inside, putting stroke. The stainless steel frame is milled to precise standards and the integrated face is arched aluminum. A vibration-dampening elastomer envelopes the face of the putter to deliver a smooth and responsive impact.


Cameron understands that a putter has to be pleasing to the eye, and the Detour Newport 2.5 is no exception. The Santa Fe style neck meshes well with the sharp lines of the putter. He also raised the toe of the club 2 degrees to aid in the aesthetics at address. The putter has a step-less shaft for a clean look.


This putter has a removable, stainless steel back weight that allows the player to customize it to his preference. The back weight also increases the moment of inertia through proper weight distribution and widens the sweet spot of the club. The orange sight line on the club is slightly curved, helping to promote the arc-shaped stroke path.
