Tiger Woods backup putter is up for SALE - and as expected - it costs A LOT!

Tiger Woods' personal backup Scotty Cameron red dot Newport 2 putter from the 2002 PGA Tour season is up for sale on Golden Age Auctions right now, and as you might expect, it is going for big bucks. 

This particular Woods backup putter model - featuring Woods' customary TW stamp on the toe - has already received nine bids and has reached a current $53,589 with 10 days to go as of August 18.

According to the write up on the GAA website, this putter had spent the past 18 years in the Far East, Middle East and Europe before arriving at their warehouse for auction. 

Woods' previous backup putter from the 2001 PGA Tour season sold for $154,928 last year, so there is a very good chance the 2002 version will end up at a similar price.

Scotty Cameron has explained in the past that only "one or two" backup putters were ever made each year for Woods, who is said to have often tried out the backups and practice with them at home to ensure he liked them.

Woods would only ever use the "gamer" putter in competitive action, though.

Incredibly, should Woods' actual Scotty Cameron putter that he used during 14 of his 15 career major wins ever be put up for sale later in life, then it is estimated to be worth in the region of $3 million to $5 million, according to Golden Age Golf Auctions.
