Tiger Woods Scotty Cameron Putter

"What model is Tiger Woods Scotty Cameron?" is one of THE most posted questions we get on this site.

The answer is not as simple as it might seem. The straight answer is that Tiger's famous Cameron blade is a prototype putter which is closest in shape to the Newport 2 design produced by Scotty Cameron.

However, the putter is in fact a copy of the classic Ping Anser 2 design. These putters were available in stainless steel in the 1980s and 1990s.

Woods used an Anser putter to win a record 3 US Amateur Championships during his amateur career, but for some reason stopped using the original in favor of the Cameron designed alternative.


           Putter length: 35.25" (89.5cm)
           Putter weight: 326 grams
           Swing weight: D7
           Putter Material: German Stainless Steel.

At Best-Putter.com we try only to comment on putters we've actually held in our own hands. This is obviously rather difficult in the case of Tiger's putter, but we understand from our sources that the specifications of his putter are as above.

Tiger's putter has at different times had a Ping grip and a Scotty Cameron grip. For commercial reasons the lettering on these grips is blacked out to make it invisible.

Tiger's other putters

Although he has returned to his Scotty Cameron again and again, Tiger has used other putters, and you might like to look at those. A full run down of Tiger's putters is here. 

The most similar putter to the Anser-style that Tiger used was the Nike Method 002, which he used in order to fulfil his sponsorship deal with Nike when they started making clubs, a part of the business they closed in 2017. For this reason, of course, you'll have to search for a one on the used market. Here are the latest live offerings on eBay:
