Rory McIlroy has been testing a few putters this year, and this week, we are seeing another new one at the FedEx St. Jude. The new flatstick is a Scotty Cameron T5.5 Prototype that is based off a retail Phantom X 5.5 putter. Rory has selected Scotty’s Chromatic Bronze color for the putter, a hue that he has been fond of and used on many of his flatsticks. Scotty’s Phantom X 5 has been very popular on tour with versions being used by the top pros on every tour.
The main body of the putter, including the “fangs,” is milled from stainless steel, while the sole plate is crafted from aluminum. Both pieces are held together with four button-head hex screws. Rory’s T5.5 features a single black siteline on the top and plain black rear flange that runs between the stainless fangs. Triple cherry bombs fill the back cavity, but are left naked with no paint fill except for the Circle T logo in the heel side bomb. Twin 10-gram Circle T weights are installed in the sole and the face looks to have a medium milling depth to give Rory the sound and feel he desires.
The putter is finished off with a gloss black shaft and Rory’s usual Super Stroke Zenergy Pistol Tour grip.
