In 2009, at the PGA Championship at Hazeltine National Golf Club, Scotty Cameron walked me through the newest line of putters he'd created, the California Series. The four putters—the Monterey, Del Mar, Sonoma and Coronado—all feature a unique gold-hued finished that Cameron called "honey dipped."

When I first saw the dark, circular area on the sole, I thought the finish on the bottom of the putters had been damaged by a sticker. It occurred to me later than the circle is actually a sun, setting into the Pacific with a white seagull flying past. Now you know why I didn't do well in Art Appreciation in college.

A fifth putter has now been added to the California Series, the Hollywood, which you can see below.

Anther heel-toe weighted blade design with a high toe profile, the Hollywood looks similar to the Monterey, but the back flange flows smoothly down and away from the topline instead of going back in steps. The neck is also round and goes directly into the shaft, like the Coronado's.

The Hollywood features the same 303 Stainless Steel head and gold finish other California putters have, as well as the sole weights that allow Titleist to customize the swing weight based on the club's length.

The Hollywood, which should retail for about $300 in pro shops, will come standard with a single sight line, 3/4 shaft-width of offset, 71° lie angle and 4° of loft. See-Try-Buy: Learn more about Titleist/Scotty Cameron clubs, and schedule your fitting with GolfTEC.
