Two Tiger Woods putters each sell at auction for over $200K

Two putters associated with 82-time PGA Tour winner Tiger Woods both individually sold for over $200,000 during a recent auction that went until Sunday morning of the Masters Tournament. 

The auction was themed around the Augusta major and included a Scotty Cameron Teryllium Newport model that Woods used in the 1998 PGA Tour season, according to Golf Digest. It was also possibly used at the 1998 U.S. Open by Woods as well. 

Woods won just one event during the 1998 season, the BellSouth Classic. He'd won four tournaments the year before, including his first major with The Masters.

Woods later gave the putter to NFL Hall of Famer Andre Reed, who put the Scotty Cameron up to benefit his charity, the Andre Reed foundation. 

The Scotty Cameron-authenticated putter went for $221,376 in the auction. 

The other putter related to the 15-time major champion was a custom Scotty Cameron backup putter made for Woods in 1999. The putter is identical to the one Woods used, down to the same blacked out Ping grip. 

In 1999, Woods won an incredible eight tournaments on the PGA Tour, including his second major with the PGA Championship. He also won two World Golf Championships, and the PGA Tour's TOUR Championship.

That backup putter went for $201,250

The putters aren't the only Woods-related items that went up at the auction. A ball Woods used during the final round of his 1997 Masters victory went for $64,124 as well. It was put up by Julian Nexsen, who was just nine when he was handed the Tiger Woods ball following his bogey on the fifth hole.
