Tiger Woods’ Only Non-Nike Golf Club

Tiger Woods is in south Florida this week talking up Nike golf clubs. But the most important club in Tiger’s bag doesn’t have a swoosh. It’s his beloved putter, a Scotty Cameron. In fact, it’s the only non-Nike club in Woods’ arsenal.

Tiger does have a backup putter that’s a Nike model, but it hasn’t helped him win 12 majors. I don’t expect the Nike putter will see much action.

Setting aside the Scotty Cameron would be like benching Tom Brady. It's not happening.

Think he'll ever have to depend on a fan return it to him, like someone returned White Fang for Jack Nicklaus? I'm betting Tiger holds on to that putter when he retires.

I doubt if Tiger will ever lose track of that putter, especially with Steve Williams around.

Speaking of lost clubs, Ben Hogan had his one iron stolen right after it struck one of golf's most famous shots at Merion in the 1950 U.S. Open.

I'm sure Nike isn't thrilled about the putter. It's funny that the most important tool in TW's bag isn't Nike.
