Tiger Woods' Scotty Cameron putter that he used prior to his famous 1997 season was recently sold at an auction for almost $23,000...

There are two putters that Tiger Woods has made years of history with, the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS which he won 13 of his 14 majors with, and the Scotty Cameron Newport Teryllium TeI3 which he used to tear up Augusta druing the 1997 Masters Tournament.

At the 1997 Masters, Woods set multiple records using the Scotty Cameron Newport Teryllium TeI3, when he won the prestigious event by 12 shots, one of the most memorable victories in golf history.

In 1996, Tiger was using a Scotty Cameron Newport Xperimental TeI3 prototype which he fell in love with, leading to the creation of the putter that helped him win the '97 Masters.

That prototype putter was recently sold at the Green Jacket Auction for an austonishing $22,784.40 and is as close as you can get to owning a used version of one of Tiger's most famous putters.

Although it's a hefty sum to pay for a putter, some might call it a bargain, considering two of Tiger;s Newport 2 GSS backups sold for $60,000 and $44,000 in the last three years, but he never even used them!
