Cameron Debuts Dual Balance Putters

The trend toward counterbalanced putters in the wake of the decision to ban anchoring continues with the recent move by Scotty Cameron to make two of his most popular shapes and models – Select Newport 2 (blade) and GoLo 7 (mallet) – available with Dual Balance technology.
According to Cameron, these counterbalanced flat sticks are designed to offer improved stability for players who struggle to make a consistent stroke with a conventional-length putter – and who realize they soon must leave anchoring behind.
From his research through the years, Cameron says he has learned that the best putters in the game keep the butt end of their putters pointed to the same 1- to 2-inch circle in their midsection throughout the stroke. His Dual Balance putters, with a 50-gram heavier head and a 50-gram counterweight in the butt of the shaft, specifically are made to help players replicate that stroke without anchoring the club to the body.
“The purpose of anchoring a putter is to stop the butt end from moving,” he explains. “Now that anchoring will be against the rules, we have determined that the best way to help golfers regain that stability and control is through Dual Balance. It eliminates that tendency for many players to flip, push or lead the putter with their hands.”
