‘Tiger Woods’ iconic Scotty Cameron on the auction block’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing a backup putter for Tiger Woods that is currently being auctioned off at Golden Age Golf Auctions. Per the auction’s description:

“Offered here is one of Tiger Woods’ actual Scotty Cameron Newport II putters from 2001 – produced by Scotty for Tiger himself in the midst of the Tiger Slam. Now, this was not the putter that Tiger used to win 14 of his 15 Major Championships; that putter is still owned and frequently used by Tiger. Golden Age’s Ryan Carey was interviewed last year for a piece on the Golf Channel with Tiger, and Ryan valued that putter at $3 million-$5 million. The offered putter is what’s famously known as a Tiger Woods “backup” – a putter produced for Tiger to practice with and experiment with should he decide to switch putters, or should something happen to the original putter and a backup needed to be called into duty. 

According to Scotty Cameron, he only produced 1 or 2 “backup” putters for Tiger each year they worked together. Tiger would often try out the backups, and even practice with them to ensure they were to his liking, but (so the legend goes) Tiger only used his one trusty gamer in actual tournament play.”

With ten days remaining on the auction, the blade’s current leading bid is over $30k, and our members have been discussing the auction and putter in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • iBanesto: “If the backup putter is worth that much, how much would the original be?!”
  • gioguy21: “I’m thankful to have seen and felt his backup putter in my own eyes/hands. while not the original…it’s still pretty damn cool.”
  • Emthree: “Newman’s Daytona went for $17.8m. I think Tiger Woods to golf is bigger than Paul Newman to horology but would argue there are more serious players in the watch game than the golf memorabilia one.”
