Bound to happen eventually. Id imagine hell be back with the Scotty for the long term, but the Ardmore has an awesome shape.

Good looking putter. But I dont see tiger ever putting something in play for a tournament with an insert. I imagine if he likes the shape the feel that hell have a milled face Ardmore in the bag.

Tiger really likes to release the putter head...Probably doing this to change up the feels a little bit and reboot the muscle memory

While it comes down to him at the end of the day, a change in what he's looking down on might inspire him or force him to be more positive with the putter.

I personally don't rate TM putters as I think there are better options elsewhere but it'll be a shot in the arm for their sales and it might be the temporary shot in the arm that gets him holing a few putts and getting him into contention.

It certainly can't hurt.  But that's probably the reason many of us keep 5 (or 20) putters in an extra bag.  The Scotty isn't looking good to him right now, and misbehaving.  Let's see if it helps.

That’s interesting because Tiger is left eye dominant and he normally does not like lines on his putter. But no doubt something needed to change the ball was not coming off the face right with the Scotty

Tiger had a stint with a heel shafted Del Mar 3.5 at one point in his Nike days. This is the TM version of the putter.

He always said that he uses different putters to help produce a feeling that he is searching for. Most recently in the US Open presser he was asked just this. Now if he were to game it, I would be blown away. Until that happens, nothing new to see here.

He actually putted pretty well with it. Placed 2nd in one of the Aussie events.

The last piece to the puzzle maybe?

I have to admit, I never figured he would actually put the ego aside and embrace trying a different putter.  it's worked for some other players, maybe it will work for him also.

I remember theres an old video in which Tiger said he likes to tinker if hes not playing well. Hence, Im not surprised to see hes testing a new putter.

However, putting a new putter in play is a completely different beast.

All I can say is that if he finishes near the top this week with that putter, Taylormade better start loading containers full of them because they will be disappearing from shelves like bread before a hurricane.

https://www.taylorma...a/DW-WZ798.html

don't think he used a del mar 3.5. It was a Nike heel shafted putter,

http://www.putters.c...tter_p_201.html

He said he likes using a heel shafted putter to practice because of the release feeling it gives. I'm the same way but I also played a heel shafted putter when I was young

Lol the rookies have already started buying the model without the game changer short slant neck. Just like other mallet models, with the full shaft twisty offset...no thanks.

Although more companies have added short slant mallets now

I don’t think they have a custom embroidery shop on the tour van though.  I guess anything is possible.

I remember him using a Method 003 but not a SC Del Mar.  I could be wrong though.
