Scotty Cameron’s new Phantom approach

Used by the best tour players in the world—that’s one of the calling cards of Scotty Cameron. And that’s exactly what he’s tapped into with the new Phantom X family, with tour-inspired setups and an update that witnesses new models, as well as the Phantom X 11 and 11.5, which are wingback mallets. The new Phantom X putters will be available online & in store March 26.

“Working with our game’s best players gives me great perspective into what they are looking for in a mallet putter,” Cameron says. “From the types of metals used to the subtle changes in shaft bends, these new Phantom X models offer brand new, highly requested options that build on our most popular models from 2020.”

What’s new

  • All four putters offer new shapes and neck configurations, including a version of the putter Justin Thomas used on tour.
  • The putters use steel and aluminum, as well as 303 stainless steel on the face and body.
  • The Phantom X 5 and Phantom X 12 offer compact overall head sizes, refined swept-back wings and were inspired by versions used on tour.
  • The 5 and 11 models use a stepless steel shaft to limit face rotation during the stroke, as well as a single mid-bend that aims you directly down the target line.
  • The 5.5 uses a small slant neck, while the 11.5 has a stepless steel shaft and single low-bend to promote an arc both and blade-like feel.
  • Each Phantom X model has misted head to reduce glare, while the 6061 aircraft grade aluminum components have been misted and anodized black. Scotty’s familiar three-dot theme carries through to the back cavities of the Phantom X 5 and 5.5 as unpainted, raw circles milled into the stainless steel. The sight lines on the Phantom X 5 and 5.5 are painted black, while sight lines on the Phantom X 11 and 11.5 models are accented in light gray.

New models

Phantom X 5

A complete redesign of the 5, the face is carried through to the body and wings and integrated with an aluminum sole component and stainless steel sole weights. This revamped mid-mallet is reminiscent of past Futura models with its slightly more compact profile and wingback shape.

Phantom X 5.5

The model inspired by Thomas’s putter, this uses a small slant neck, as well as the same overall sizing and material makeup found in his gamer. Designed to promote subtle toe flow with stability, it has a milled sight line on the topline.

Available in both right and left-handed models, this is aimed at golfers who like toe-hang in their flatstick.

Phantom X 11

Sharing similarities to the Phantom X 12 and new Phantom X 5, this new option is a compact mallet.

 Phantom X 11.5

This model is the same as the 11, but with a low-bend shaft to enhance toe flow, while still offering stability via the new solid face/body.
