First up, we’ve got a brand that’s known for making high-end putters. It’s face milled with aircraft-grade aluminum, providing a superb feel. The clear alignment lines make you feel confident in your set up when standing over your putt.

Scotty Cameron putters are known for their classy looks, and I’m pleased to say the Phantom X fits the bill perfectly. from the slick Pistolero grip to the detailing on the sole, the design is a real eye-catcher. Although this is an outstanding putter looks-wise, it’s not just a pretty face.

I’ve used it for around 8 months after asking the club pro to try out a few different mallets. I was sold on the Phantom X 12 immediately. I couldn’t believe how confident I felt standing over the ball. After hitting a few putts there was no going back. I was seeing a consistent roll and distance, even when I didn’t find the sweet spot.

The pro told me it’s a highly popular putter for low handicap players. This is down to how much feel you get combined with the stability of the head. There’s a distinct “ping” noise when you strike the ball, which doesn’t bother me but it’s worth noting.

The incredible feel, quality engineering, and forgiveness make this putter tough to beat. That’s why it’s my pick for the best mallet putter around right now.
