So I was pondering this today. Tiger has won all but one major with the same putter, now Koepka has won four with his. Who else has won multiple majors using the same putter in the modern era?

    A subjective ranking of tour players' putters success in the last 20-25 years:

    1) Tiger's NP 2
    2) Spieth's 009
    3) Koepka's Buttonback
    4) Zach Johnson's Seemore
    5) Stricker's white hot 2
    6) Snedeker's Rossie

    Thought about Crenshaw and Faxon, but decided they are considered prior generation at this point. One I forgot about would be Jason Day's red Spyder tour, but I have no clue it's the same one through the last few years. Same for Kuchar's armlock. Those two are probably honorable mentions for this generation.

    If we're not talking about the same player, Day, DJ, Sergio all won with Spider Tours if I'm not mistaken.

    A Buttonback T10?
    I was trying to google image the others to see if they had the same putters in the bag for their different majors.

    I wouldn’t put it past Koepka though to be able to drive it 200 yards with his Buttonback though.

    Ha. Probably. With a little butter cut.

    Last I saw he was like in the 90s in strokes gained putting. To be fair he seems pretty uninterested in non majors, but I’m not sure it’s the buttonback that’s doing the damage.
