In January 2019, Scotty Cameron unveiled a new line of Phantom X putters that consisted of nine different options in total. Based on feedback from TOUR players, Scotty Cameron is adding another option to the list: a Phantom X 12.5 putter.
“Every time we introduce a new putter line, I receive requests from TOUR players and dedicated golfers for additional setups and configurations,” Cameron said in a press release. “Phantom X 12.5 is the result of some of those requests.”
Like the rest of the Phantom X lineup, the 12.5 mallet uses a unique design and a multi-material construction that combines 303 stainless steel and 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum to create more forgiveness and stability. What’s different, however, is a new low-bend shaft, which has one shaft of offset that’s designed to promote more of an arc in the path of the putting stroke and release of the toe. It also has a single-milled sightline on the crown of the putter to provide a different look at address.
To appease the southpaws, the new 12.5 Phantom X putter is also available in a left-handed option.
“I added the low-bend shaft for extra toe flow and also designed a new alignment option by milling a single sight line down the center painted black for a very clean look from address,” Cameron said. “It really sets up nicely. Adding this new model also gave me the opportunity to make a left-handed version designed so everyone can take advantage of the performance benefits of the Phantom X 12.5.”
The new Phantom X 12.5 putter has an anodized black-misted finish, and the sightline is painted gloss black. The putter will come stock with a stepless steel shaft with a misted finish, and a Pistolero Plus grip. They will sell for $429 apiece, becoming available on Dec. 12 in North America and Feb. 14 worldwide.
