The Purple Putter?
By mustang6560 on 3/3/11
Ian Poulter just posted a picture on his Twitter account of the new Scotty Cameron Ian Poulter Prototype putter he'll be using today at The Honda Classic. It looks pretty sweet.
From the pictures Ian put up, the putter looks purple. I wouldn't put it past him to use a purple putter- I mean it's not like he enjoys being flashy or anything... But, I'm not sure how a purple finish would look in direct sunlight so I have to assume it's a bronze finish. Although, as an LSU fan, I think it would be sweet to have a purple putter to take out when I play against my rival SEC friends (especially Alabama). I'm going to post back to him on Twitter to see if I can get him to comment.
The prototype looks swing though. The grooves on the front look very interesting. I wonder what the technical explanation of the vertical oval shape that runs the length of the club face. I play Odyssey (mainly because I got it for my birthday), but Scotty Cameron sure does know how to make a good looking putter.

When you look at it on Twitter, it does not look purple. Good looking GSS prototype!
He also said he packed 14 putters this week in case this one doesnt work for him.
I milled a similar finish on one of my putters that had gotten kinda rough looking. It has no effect other than looking cool.
SD Charlie says:
Yeah - I was going to say that they're milling marks. I'm sure S.C. would market them as "smooth roll inducing grooves" but as Merlin3driver said, thay probably don't have any other effect apart from looking cool.
I had the chance to swing a SC putter last year in Myrtle. One of the guys playing saw me with my big grip on my putter and said "try this and tell me what you think". It was his $600 custom Scotty. Weighted really nice, it moved through the ball super smooth. I wish i would have asked him the specs because it was perfect for me.
@bducharm- i guess we'll have to wait and see how Ian does today
I think I may be the only Auburn fan out here.
Wait, you're an LSU Fan? Geaux Tigers!
I'm sure it's just the satin finish and the sunlight that makes the putter appear purple. Those two things combined with with a bazillion variations in how various monitors are setup and interpret color, will do that.
The Rife isn't working eh?
He said on Twitter that the Scotty worked pretty good - tough day in the wind!!!
Geaux Tigers!!! I would love a purple putter.
The single red dot on the front and back, the vertical scotty cameron text on the front; didnt anyone notice its almost an exact clone of tigers? Its definitely not purple also.
