"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
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 this style of putter to win a record 3 US
Amateur Championships during his amateur career, but for some reason stopped
using the original in favour of the Cameron designed alternative.

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 our 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:
A straightforward heel and toe design with great roll from the C-Groove
Nike Method 001The best of the Nike Method putters. Favored by Tiger Woods while he was contractually obliged to use a Nike putter. A standard looking Anser style putter, with nice roll and feel. But not good enough to stay in Woods' bag once Nike gave up on the golf equipment industry.
Nike Method 004Face balanced version of the Method 001. Favor this putter if you routinely pull your putts or you're trying to produce a straight-back-straight through stroke.
