Tiger Woods putters sold at auction have ties that can be traced back to the famed Newport 2 GSS he used to win 14 of his 15 major titles. The putter currently available on Collectable, however, is connected to an iconic Anser-style model that started the Scotty Cameron craze in 1997, when Woods set countless Masters records en route to a historic 12-shot win.
Two months after Golden Age Golf Auctions sold a Tiger Woods Scotty Cameron backup putter traced to the 2000 season for an astounding $393,300, a fractional sports investing platform has its sights set on cracking the $1 million mark with another Woods-used wand.
According to Collectable, the putter on their site is photo-matched to the 1998 U.S. Open at Olympic Club and BellSouth Classic, making it a Tiger-used putter. Woods would also go on to win the BellSouth with the putter for his 7th Tour title.
The Newport TeI3 Teryllium he wielded that year at Augusta remains the only other putter Woods used to win a major title. As Woods confirmed in 2016, it’s one of two putters that have a prominent place in his putting studio.
Golden Age Golf Auctions founder Ryan Carey said: "The golf collecting industry is scorching amazing. We are seeing a massive uptick in demand and that is long overdue." Before the putter ended up on Collectable, it was owned by NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver and Buffalo Bills great Andre Reed, who was gifted the putter by Woods himself during one of their rounds at Isleworth.
