ENCINITAS, CALIFORNIA | Picture this: You are seated in a renovated old surf shack on the California coast. You are waiting for that noted golfaholic and surfaholic, Mr. Don T. Cameron, who is widely known as Scotty.
This is a true golf story. It all started when Scotty Cameron – 10 or 11 years old at the time – began making full-size adult putters. This was before he became a model of maturity. He was far, far ahead of his time.
“I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life,” Cameron said.
Today, Don Thomas Cameron has been permanently re-rooted with the nickname Scotty. That moniker came from his mom (mother knows best), and it stuck more than she could have imagined. “Scotty” has become a one-word phenomenon, a brand, the golf equivalent of what Orville Gibson became with guitars.
Of the 15 major championships captured by Tiger Woods, 14 were won with his trusty Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter. Troll the putting green at any PGA Tour event and you will see more Scottys than you can count in one sitting.
