Tiger Woods is not only perhaps the greatest golfer to walk to earth, he is also famously the most private. Getting quality pieces of memorabilia directly tied to Tiger has been a daunting, and frequently fruitless, task since we started our auction 16 years ago in 2006.

Well here it is. After countless hours of researching, searching, planning, and pleading, we have an auction with not one, but two of Tiger Woods' personal red dot Scotty Cameron putters. We will continue to shout it from the mountaintop - Scotty Cameron putters that were made for Tiger Woods are the single most undervalued golf items in the hobby. They will be collected for decades to come. 

This Scotty Cameron Newport II Tour putter is made with SSS and has a high buff finish. Stamped "Tiger Woods" on the bumpers, and "Tiger" on the face. According to the Certificate of Authenticity from Scotty, this putter was "Made for Tiger Woods." According to a handwritten note from Scotty Cameron, this putter was acquired ("won") by a collector (presumably at an auction or some sort of giveaway) at a 1999 "Scotty Cameron Day" Event at a California golf store. 

The fact that this Tiger Woods red dot Scotty Cameron putter was produced in 1999 is quite significant, as that is the exact same year that Scotty Cameron first had the idea for the red dot on Tiger's legendary gamer - when he was trying to remove weight from the cavity. This 1999 red dot putter is almost certainly the earliest such example to reach the collector market.
