Have you noticed the subtle differences in Tiger Woods' and Charlie's putters?

When you think of things that are synonymous with Tiger Woods his putter comes to mind. 

That trusty Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter has delivered 15 major championships. 

It has become uber famous and was one of the first clubs he picked up after his car crash in February.

He has described it as old faithful and was using it putting to holes filled with sand as he couldn't quite bend over to reach the ball.

Now he is back and millions of fans around the world are keeping their fingers crossed we see him play again in 2022.

For years he has kept backups as an emergency and millions of fans use it, albeit not as well as the big cat.

Woods, who will turn 46 on December 30, used the famed putter again most recently at the PNC Championship with his son Charlie. 

Eagled-eyed viewers will have spotted that his son was using a mini version of the putter. 

There were quite a few large putts drained from down town by the mini cat with some celebrations that we have seen before.
