Tiger Woods’ 2002 Scotty Cameron reserve putter sold for a record $ 393,300 at Golden Age Golf Auctions on Sunday, according to Tom VanHaaren from ESPN. It is believed to be the most expensive golf club ever sold.
Scotty Cameron made reserve putters for Woods to practice with and produced only one or two substitutes each year they worked together. This particular putter, a 2002 Newport II model, was never used in tournaments.
Golden Age Golf Auctions also sold a 2001 Newport II in September 2020 for $ 155,000, according to VanHaaren.
Woods has not competed in a golf tournament since the 2020 Masters at Augusta National. The 45-year-old man was in a serious car rollover accident in February 2021 and underwent surgery on his leg after sustaining multiple injuries.
After the accident, a FOX Sports physician and injury analyst said Woods’ recovery time was between eight and 12 months. However, it is unclear if he will ever return.
According to PeopleWoods is “doing well” but has not been able to play golf as he is still on crutches.
