Scotty Cameron was born in Glendale, California in 1962 and now lives in Carlsbad, California with his wife, Kathy, and daughters, Summer Lynne and Sandra Dawn.
Growing up, Scotty often played golf with his father, an insurance investigator with a passion for the game and a two handicap. When they weren't out on a golf course, they were in the garage working on clubs, shaping heads, wrapping grips, creating new designs, then taking them out for "field" tests.
With the putter, the idea was, when it's finished, it should look like it melts into the ground. One of the last things Scotty remembers his dad telling him was, "Stick with the game of golf, Scotty. I think you have a future."
Scotty's fond memories and early training led him to perfect the special talents he had learned from his father. For his early designs, he started out using a table-top mill in his mother-in-law's garage in Orange County, CA. Because of the mill's limitations, he compensated by becoming an excellent shaper and finisher, a talent that has helped establish his exceptional reputation for craftsmanship.
In 1991, after working with the Ray Cook Golf Company, Scotty worked with Maxfli, Cleveland Classics, Founder's Golf and Mizuno. In 1992 he and his wife Kathy started Cameron Golf International. Their goal was to design the finest putters for the best players in the world. The year 1993 was a turning point for Scotty and Kathy's company, when one of their putters was used to win the Masters.
During the PLAYERS Championship in 1994 well known teaching pro Peter Kostis approached Scotty and mentioned that Titleist was interested in his company to design putters. The next day Scotty received a call from Wally Uihlein, CEO of Acushnet Company, and they agreed to meet. After several meetings, it was clear they shared the same vision and a relationship was formed. In September of 1994, Cameron Golf International and Acushnet Company became partners. The rest is history.
