    I have, and still use, a Bullseye Standard with the SC logo on the bottom (John Reuter design)

    Can anyone tell me what the SC stands for please ?

    Over in the UK alot of people think its stands for Scotty Cameron. I am not so sure.

    If it looks like this, according to what I have found on the internet, it is a Scotty Cameron.  I just typed in the information that you gave and it brought up a lot of examples.  Hope this helps some.

    Hello

    Thanks for replying. Yes, thats the one.  I have seen alot via google to either say that its Scotty Cameron or Sand Cast. However, nothing from a Titleist employee.

    Are there any Titleist staff members on the forum who would know for certain ?

    Regards

    Carl.

    Hi everyone, 

    Sorry for the delayed response, but I wanted to make sure I got the right information for everyone.

    Our good friends over at Scotty Cameron were able to shed some light on this topic. They said:

    The SC sole stamp was added to the John Reuter Jr. Bulls Eye design when Scotty Cameron joined Titleist. Prior to Scotty's joining the company, the Bulls Eye design had gone through many subtle shape changes. This was mainly due to the casting manufacturing process and then the hand-finishing, which produced inconsistent putter head shapes. Scotty gave the existing design his signature improvements, which brought the Bulls Eye design back to its original shape and length. Since he was now the resident Titleist putter maker (circa '94-95), the Bulls Eye putters that were distributed by the company going forward were stamped with an SC. 

    Hope this helps. 

    Take care and talk soon.

    I have a John Reuter, Jr. Acushnet Bullseye putter, made in USA. Keep it in my man cave as a conversation piece. Predates the SC version.

    During my years in Europe I sawa few of those putters. I am not real sure but I believe John Reuter was a very popular club designer in the UK. It could be quite possible that Scotty Cameron colaborated with Reuter. Also, if you are in need I have a Scotty Cameron American Clasic Milled Bullseye putter cover. Never used.

  11. Not sure but I think Scotty Cameron

    I have a blade putter, the American Classic by Scotty Cameron...best putter ever!

  12. For decades the Reuter Jr. bullseye style putters were produced of brass using a sand casting process. When Cameron joined Titelist he made the bullseye heads larger, and changed the material composition to use less brass, so that the putters would be harder and less prone to dings. These Cameron versions were produced in a few basic models, all stamped with the SC on the sole, However theses SC model brass alloy bullseyes were not especially popular and by the late 90's Titliest discontinued producing them  The one remaining version is the SC Standard model bullseye, which I believe Titliest still produces as a promotional events putter. For example, if a consumer wanted to order their company logo on 150 putters for tee prizes at a company event,  the brass alloy SC model bullseye is the one putter  Titleist offers for that purpose.

    John Reuter Jr. paid attention to detail. He was a skilled player and knew the functional benefits of using soft brass, and the sand casting manufacturing process, for his putters. Also, Reuter Jr. bullseye's were all of relatively small head size and low weight. The low weight, especially, promotes a good sense of touch. The SC versions, both of brass alloy and Cameron's more recent steel material bullseyes, are significantly larger in size and of heavier weight.

  13. I have a John Reuters jr, standard flange, SC stamped bullseye putter and I'd like to get a cover for it. Was there a cover produced for this model as I'd like to keep this piece as close to the original spec as possible?

    I did buy a Cameroon cover but it just falls off .

    Any recommendations?

    Many thanks, really useful thread, great work guys!

    I'd go with the SC brass being only slightly larger and heavier than the Reuter models, my SC's still ding up just as easy. There were variations in size and weight in the Acushnet Reuter designs as well.

    With the SC brass model one subtle change is the hosel/neck? of the club head is shifted more to the centre and is slightly better balanced. I still find the SC flange model one of the best 'feel' putters out there and even without much in the way to help the alignment isn't a problem at all.
  16. I have just found this model! Could someone tell me abit about it? As it doesn’t have the sc (scottt Cameron in the circle anyway?)

    How much is it worth?? Anything?

    Thanks
