As the Tiger Woods collecting market continues its rapid ascent, some of the most sought after items are Scotty Cameron putters that Scotty "Made for Tiger Woods." And within that tiny group of coveted putters, there is an upper echelon of putters truly made as the "backup" putter for Tiger - rather than a prototype or a new style for Tiger to try. Unfortunately, it is often impossible to know which putters that Tiger or Scotty truly intended as a "backup" - ready to be called into duty should something happen to Tiger's trusty gamer. 

Well, this is one of those rare putters where we can confirm is indeed a Tiger Woods "backup" putter. We know this because the putter comes with a 2003 letter from Scotty Cameron where Scotty himself uses the term "backup." Scotty Cameron's exact words are "This Putter was made as a Backup Putter for Tiger Woods." Well, it doesn't get much clearer than that!

This Newport II TeI3 Pro Platinum Plus is stamped "TIGER" on the toe.
