Scotty Cameron’s new Phantom X mallets for 2021 have been the talk of the Tour since their debut at the Sony Open in Hawaii in January, making their way into the bags of some of the game’s top players and being trusted to multiple wins.
In February, Titleist Brand Ambassador Max Homa trusted a new Phantom X 11.5 prototype to victory at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, CA. Homa said the alignment and the milled face of the 11.5 were standout features of the new Phantom X for him.
“I work a lot on alignment in my putting and I feel like it’s very square and a lot easier to line up for me,” Homa said. “It was kind of a no brainer when I got it. I also like a milled face more than an insert. The face feels a little bit more like my older blade putters do.”
At that event, 21 Scotty Cameron mallets were in play and the new Phantom X models were out in force. Fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith also put an X 11.5 prototype into play.
“With the different neck options [in the 11 and 11.5], Scotty has reached multiple audiences with players that like a face balanced option or toe hang,” said Scotty Cameron player relations representative Drew Page. “Almost every player has said the exact same thing: ‘It sits perfectly and it’s the perfect size.’”
In March, Justin Thomas made a Sunday charge trusting his X 5.5 Prototype to victory at THE PLAYERS Championship. The putter that really got Scotty’s gears turning to extend the line with additional offerings, JT’s configuration sparked the design ideas built into the new Phantom X models, each featuring solid milled steel faces with Tour-inspired shapes, necks and alignment features.
At the Dell WGC Championship in March, seven players put a Phantom X mallet in play including Titleist Brand Ambassador and longtime match-play ace Ian Poulter who switched into a Phantom X 11 prototype for his 6 and 5 opening round victory romp at the Austin Country Club in Austin, TX.
The Tour has also responded favorably to the sound and feel of the new 2021 Phantom X models.
“The feedback has been how solid the putter feels at impact and produces the sound that most PGA Tour players are looking for. We have some really great mallet options right now with the X 12 being the highest-MOI and most stable. And then the new X 11 and X 11.5 for the guys that want a slightly smaller head,” explains Page.
The new 2021 Phantom X 5, 5.5, 11 and 11.5 models are now available in authorized Titleist golf shops worldwide. For more information, check out our Phantom X page.
