Like a well-crafted selection from the wine-producing region that shares its name, Scotty’s Sonoma is a unique creation with unmistakable character. The attentive player with a keen appreciation for detail will notice how Scotty labored over the finer points of this compact mallet’s design. Take, for instance, how the sculpted D-shaped back flange flows in a seamless transition down toward the pocket. Scotty created a radius along the perimeter, pulling the curves together in an unbroken plane. From address, this visual cue breeds confidence and inspires success.
Additional details like the elegant round neck with ¾ shaft offset positioned slightly forward of the heel is as striking visually as it is performance-focused. This deliberate neck posture promotes a flowing, gate-like stroke—not quite as much as the heel shafted Del Mar and just more than the Fastback and Monterey models.
Clearly a putter for those looking to make a statement—as well as those seeking specific performance attributes—the Sonoma ups the ante, yet again. Offered only in the right-handed configuration, Scotty’s new Sonoma enjoys the same features as its California line partners—deep face milling, brilliant Tour cherry dot graphics, the new glare-resistant Sea Mist finish and the revolutionary Pistolero grip. And like many things classic California, this will be a putter for the ages.
