The 2021 Players Champion is currently using a Scotty Cameron X 5.5 Tour Prototype. Before, he used a Phantom X prototype and a timeless blade.

He has also used the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Timeless GSS in the past.

Scotty Cameron’s X 5.5 Tour putter is a limited release model with only 2,020 made. The club was created to fit Thomas’ game. He has used it in 13 of his 14 PGA Tour wins.

The club was designed for the 2017 PGA Tour player of the year in the summer of 2016.

The putter has a welded slanted neck which helps promote an arc style stroke that is usually found in blade putters.

The Scotty Cameron features a high moment of inertia wingback style.

The face and body are milled with 303 stainless steel. There is an integrated aluminum plate and sole weights that are customizable.

The club is silver and black in color and has a black milled sight line on the top as an alignment aid.
