Tiger Woods’ backup Scotty Cameron putter just sold for $44 grand

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ Scotty Cameron Newport 2 is arguably the most famous club in modern golf history. It’s certainly the most notable flatstick since Bobby Jones’ Calamity Jane!

In today’s edition of “Items Selling For More than You Could Ever Afford,” one of Woods’ backup Camerons from 2001 just sold at auction for the princely sum of $44,401.20. A similar Woods backup sold for $60K to a Japanese collector in 2015.

Green Jacket Auctions, who put the putter up, say Scotty Cameron only produced one or two backup putters for Woods annually. Reportedly, Woods still owns the vast majority of these putters and has stuck to his “gamer” for 13 of his 14 major championships.

Per Green Jacket Auctions,

“This putter comes with a certificate of authenticity from Scotty Cameron, who describes it as follows “Made for Tiger Woods, GSS Newport II with rare vertical stamping & sight dot”. The putter also comes with a 2nd letter from 2003 on Scotty Cameron’s own letterhead, which also states “This putter was made as a backup for Tiger Woods.”’

The auction house’s Masters lot also included Woods’ 2005 Masters-winning Nike One Gold golf ball, which sold for just north of $30K.

    I hit a few balls with one of these at Fairway Golf in San Diego, probably 12 years ago. They were asking $35K. I was nervous just holding the thing. I do recall it having an exceptionally soft feel.

    As someone said just a knockoff club….just a ping copy…Tiger even used a ping grip on the Cameron’s for gosh sake. Everytime Tiger changes club companies aren’t his irons always just copies of the mizunos he started on tour with?

      No no …. the putter has been created in the heavenly Cameron WRX machine shop and has Tiger’s “green” magic baked into it …!!!

    I’ll bet it was one of Cameron tools, either the Latino Hollywood producer or the idiotic financial douchebag in Colorado, lol……

      … or even POTUS Trump who we know, loves golf. Don’t be surprised if it shows up in his WITB at the Trump National Golf Club Mar-a-Lago this weekend (provided the Syrians and Russians behave).

      Nah, my dad wouldn’t spend that amount on a copy of Ping putter, ha!

    I wonder if it included a head cover.

  9. John Krug

    Apr 13, 2018 at 12:32 pm

    It’s used; therefore only worth $44.

    Tigers Scotty Cameron may be the most valuable of his clubs but I believe the 9-iron rumored to be wielded by his wife Elin in that now infamous night back in Nov ‘09 would certainly be a close second were it ever to come up for auction.

    • SteveK

      Apr 14, 2018 at 1:03 am

      Tiger would prolly outbid everybody for that infamous 9-iron so he can trash it on his Land Rover … 😮

    They are now buying up historical golf equipment along with Stradivarius violins at exorbitant prices. Their mentality is “you are what you own” …. particularly if you are short and non-athletic but swimming in ¥¥¥¥¥ and $$$$$ … 😮

      Somewhere in Tokyo there is a tiny 10′ x 30′ golf shop with an artificial putting rug and advertising a 5 minute putting experience with Tiger’s own putter …. for 1,000¥ BYOB(alls).. 😎

    You think if I stamp “Tiger Woods” in askew lettering on my Oil Can Newport 2 I’d fool anyone?

    • SteveK

      Apr 14, 2018 at 1:31 am

      You might fool yourself if you were one of those delusional neurotic impotent gearheads …!

  14. Chuck Barkley

    Apr 12, 2018 at 2:59 pm

    $44 is probably about right, since this particular putter has zero wins on tour! It’s an understudy, Broadway term, for you Canadians! Ha!

    • SteveK

      Apr 14, 2018 at 1:13 am

      … so it’s a premature-immature putter with no putting experience?!! 😮

    Apr 12, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    I always told people if he sold his original Scotty Cameron it would go for over $1 million in charity auction. Prove me wrong

    • Bob Parson Jr.

      Apr 13, 2018 at 8:01 pm

      Well, with that nameI see why you would think that, lol…..

  16. TeeBone

    Apr 12, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    Can someone please explain why Scotty Cameron has never made a Newport 2 with a sight dot and no sight line?

    • Jordan

      Apr 12, 2018 at 2:14 pm

      He does all the time. It just takes $500 for a fitting and at least $3500 to get into a custom putter.

    • Omar

      Apr 13, 2018 at 2:03 pm

      So true, seeing a sight dot would look amazing against the back of a ball.

  17. Brian

    Apr 12, 2018 at 12:52 pm

    lol…I misread the title and thought it has been sold for $44…not $44k

    • george

      Apr 13, 2018 at 2:05 pm

      Looks like some has more money than they know what to do with it instead paying 44 mil for a $500.00 why not give it to charity

    • SteveK

      Apr 14, 2018 at 1:16 am

      … and it has never seen a golf ball… and rates a 10/10 on eBay..!!!

Stephen Curry sponsors the creation of golf program at Howard University

Published

on

NBA star and avid golfer Stephen Curry has donated a seven-figure sum to Howard University in a move that will see men’s and women’s golf teams at the school for at least the next six years.

As the Washington Post reported on Monday, this will be the first time the school will compete at the Division I level in the sport, and the university plans to have the teams ready to compete for the 2020/21 academic year.

Curry’s donation was partly inspired by Howard senior and golfer Otis Ferguson IV, and speaking on bringing golf back to Howard, the 31-year-old stated

“Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful. It’s a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master, so when you hear about these passionate student athletes who have the talent but don’t have a fair shot at the game, it’s tough. I feel really honored to play a small role in the rich history of Howard University.”

Howard University’s previous collegiate golf team competed in Division II before disbanding three decades ago, and Curry’s donation is set to be paid out over six years in order for the golf team to become self-sustainable.
