Tiger Woods signed 2000s Scotty Cameron putter attracting huge bids at auction

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ personal Red Dot Scotty Cameron backup putter is  now up for auction.

Golden Age Auctions has listed the putter starting at $5,000. As of Friday at around 07:00 AM E.T., the bidding has reached $72,104.00. The bidding is to remain open for seventeen days.

The listing states:

“This coveted 2000s Tiger Woods backup putter has become the marquee modern golf collectible. There are only a handful of pieces of sports memorabilia that we can be relatively certain will be collected for centuries – Babe Ruth’s bat; Muhammad Ali’s gloves; Michael Jordan’s shoes. When it comes to golf, there’s one such item that we would add to the list above all others – Tiger Woods’ red dot Scotty Cameron putter.”

It must be noted that this is not the putter than Tiger used in the prime of his career to win most of his major championships. Tiger is still using that putter today, and it’s estimated that his primary Scotty Cameron could be worth up to $10 million.

While the putter is a backup, Woods still would have used the putter quite often during practice. There were very few of these putters made specifically for Tiger, which explains why the price is still rising on the putter despite it never being Woods’ primary flatstick.

The G.O.A.T was in possession of this putter until 2005, when he autographed the face and then auctioned it at a fundraiser. The event raised money for the foundation’s first TGR Learning Lab campus.

This marks the first time since 2005 that this putter has been put to auction.

    If that’s a true back up putter than I’m Tiger Woods… This is at least the third time Ive seen the auction sites not providing an accurate description of a product they are selling. Maybe it is the description they have been given by the seller but they should do some due diligence on the provenance of these highly valuable things they auction off.

      Just to expand a bit, Tiger has donated many of these”back up” putters for charity. Also, that putter looks brand new. I doubt Tiger did anything more than sign it. It definitely doesn’t look like it was “used quite often for practice”.

    Home the winner can take a magnet to this and when it sticks prove that all these years GSS is a hoax and Tiger has been using a carbon Pro Plat.

PGA Tour reveals full list of winners from 2021-22 season’s Player Impact Program

Published

on

The results of the 2021-2022 PGA TOUR season’s Player Impact Program have been revealed.

The total prize pool for the PIP has been increased from $40 million last season to $100 million and is now spread out between 20 players instead of 10. However, the PIP now offers more than just financial incentive. The top 20 players in this year’s PIP standings will be invited to the 12 “elevated events” on the 2023 calendar.

As revealed by the PGA Tour, the PIP winners and their bonuses are as follows:

  • 1. Tiger Woods $15,000,000
  • 2. Rory McIlroy $12,000,000
  • 3. Jordan Spieth $9,000,000
  • 4. Justin Thomas $7,500,000
  • 5. Jon Rahm $6,000,000
  • 6. Scottie Scheffler $5,500,000
  • 7. Xander Schauffele $5,000,000
  • 8. Matt Fitzpatrick $5,000,000
  • 9. Will Zalatoris $5,000,000
  • 10. Tony Finau $5,000,000
  • 11. Collin Morikawa $3,000,000
  • 12. Shane Lowry $3,000,000
  • 13. Kevin Kisner $3,000,000
  • 14. Max Homa $3,000,000
  • 15. Billy Horschel $3,000,000
  • 16. Rickie Fowler $2,000,000
  • 17. Adam Scott $2,000,000
  • 18. Jason Day $2,000,000
  • 19. Patrick Cantlay $2,000,000
  • 20. Viktor Hovland $2,000,000

The fact that Tiger Woods won the PIP despite playing in just nine competitive events proves that his presence in the game of golf will always be what moves the needle as long as he’s involved with the PGA Tour.

Max Homa also sees Tiger winning the PIP on a regular basis going forward barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Collin Morikawa, who finished eleventh for the second consecutive year, took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

Changes to the famous 13th hole at Augusta National appear to be complete

Published

on

Azalea has changed.

The famous par-5 13th hole at The Masters, the scene of many an eagle and considered a gimme birdie for many of today’s big hitters, has been lengthened. And we don’t need to wait for the 2023 media release to find out how.

For the 2022 tournament, Augusta chiefs were hoping to reveal changes to the 11th and 15th holes, but were beaten to it by @EurekaEarthPlus who have now become the go-to for mid-season changes to the course.

Yesterday, the drone revealed for the first time how much work Augusta has carried out on the 13th, and it hopefully stops the drive onto a favouring sloped fairway and short iron into the green.

The tee box appears to have been taken back around 40-50 yards and offers more of a closed chute to the drive. This should create more thought to positional play off the tee, and a longer second shot – another effort to stop the first major of the year becoming a long-hitters paradise.

It was March last year when we saw the initial amendments to the course. It’s November this time.

Is it ever too early for Augusta news?

Iconic piece of Tiger Woods memorabilia goes up for auction

Published

on

Tiger’s coming back, and the golfing world can’t wait.

It may only be the 20-man Hero World Challenge, and then a couple of made for-tv events, but the sight of the 15-time major winner is enough.

The mere name puts a shiver down golf enthusiasts and when Tiger memorabilia is available, expect utter madness.

Earlier this year, GolfWRX reported on the auction of the 46-year-old’s Grand Slam clubs, sticks that eventually sold for over $5 million, and now the same auction house is offering one of the famous red shirts worn by Tiger at Augusta, this one from the final round of 2010.

According to Ryan Carey of auctioneers, Golden Age Auctions, the shirt has a little extra, being the only Masters Sunday shirt available:

“We believe this is the only Sunday red from a Masters Tournament that has been auctioned, and the others might not surface. The shirt is signed by Woods. Normally that would help the price a tiny bit, but I think it helps even more with this one. It has a massive inscription that says ‘2010 Masters Final Round,’ and Tiger doesn’t autograph stuff like that very often. It’s a huge autograph, too. This one is special that he did that.”

The shirt is also the first Sunday red donned by Woods following the infamous sex scandal in 2009 that saw Tiger take an extended break from the sport.

Strangely, Woods-connected items have not always been a big mover.

Various back-up Scotty Cameron putters have sold for between 80k to 100k, but signed scorecards from the US Open failed to make their $100 reserve.

Golf balls, though, now there’s a thing.

The ball sunk for victory at the 2005 Masters sold for over $30k, whilst standard signed Nike balls continue to surpass their first bid by some way.

Tiger may be a huge name in golf, but can he attract the sort of attention of the huge worldwide megastars.

Carey hopes so.

“Game-worn sports memorabilia, especially items photo-matched to a memorable moment or historic event, are setting records all around the world this year,” he explained. “A Michael Jordan jersey recently sold for $10.1 million at Sotheby’s, and a Diego Maradona soccer jersey recently sold for $9.3 million.”

The auction started yesterday with an opening bid expected of $5k, and with no way of knowing how the market will go, this could be the perfect time to ramp up the ‘he’s coming’ news.
