Tiger Woods was seen testing a new Scotty Cameron prototype putter and new TaylorMade P790 UDI prototype 2-iron on Monday at the Open Championship at Royal Portrush.


Woods has dabbled with several different TaylorMade putters over the past couple of years, but he has always returned to his adored Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter that he has used for the majority of his professional career. 

Whether or not Woods switches things up on the greens come his opening round tee-time with Matt Wallace and Patrick Reed on Thursday remains to be seen, but it is at least interesting to see the 15-time major champion considering a tweak to his blade of choice.

The first sighting of Woods' new putter at Royal Portrush was on GolfWRX's Instagram account...

Woods was also spotted using a TaylorMade P790 UDI prototype 2-iron (17-degree), which no doubt means he will be playing plenty of his famous 'stinger' shots on the links in Northern Ireland this week...



TaylorMade's UDI - 'Ultimate Driving Iron' - has been around since 2017 and combines the company‚Äôs low-density SpeedFoam material with a more compact shape.

Woods has typically always resorted to a driving iron at an Open Championship, and last year stuck the TaylorMade GAPR Lo in his bag when bagging a top-10 finish at Carnoustie.

The 15-time major champion is bidding to win a fourth Claret Jug at Royal Portrush this week.
