What model of Ping did Tiger Woods use before he used Cameron. I thought I heard it was the Ping Anser 2, but I could be wrong.

    Yes, Anser 2 (not Anser). Tiger still uses the Pingman grip on his Cammy.

    Yep Anser 2 Stainless. He had it made because he used Mark O'Meara's when they were in Ireland before the British Open a few years ago.<br />
    <br />
    He did use a Scotty Newport Terylium before that though.

    I believe 1983. <br />

    And they still make it today. So it could be 1983 model to whenever Tiger used one.<br />

    There was a Del Mar mixed in there somewhere and also the Scottydale was before the Tei3.

    The Stainless Anser 2 came out in 1981. As far as I can remenber, Tiger used the Anser 2 in The Open at Birkdale when O'Meara won. Tiger also used a normal SC Newport during part of his Amateur career. I believe his change of putters would be something like:<br />
    <br />
    Scotty Cameron Newport (1996 Amateur)<br />
    Scotty Cameron Scottydale (1996 Pro)<br />
    Scotty Cameron Newport II Teryllium (1997 Masters)<br />
    Ping Anser II Stainless (1998) <br />
    Scotty Cameron Newport II GSS<br />

    So looks like Tiger won all his majors with quite a few different putters, right?<br />
    <br />
    I know that he won his first Masters with the Terryllium.<br />
    <br />
    Is there a list of which Major he won with which putter?

    <br />
    Tiger uses a Pingman grip "because that's what he grew up playing with..." According to many sources...not sure how truthful it is...but that's that.<br />
    <br />
    Peace.

    You are right on the '97 Masters. After that every major won with the trusty Newport 2.

    Anser 2, Pat Pend under the top line, stainless steel cast putter. These were worth silly money when Tiger had one in his bag. The DAY he put it away, the value went south so fast it wasn't even funny.<br />
    Great putters and probably the same weight as his Cameron gamer. I would bet on a weight of sub-335 grams. Anyone else have a guess?

    Old topic , although the Nike method 001 looks good and plays well , tiger should have stayed with his Scotty Cameron Newport 2 , same for Rory ! Does anybody know what major he won with the ping anser 2 ? If he did ?

    Wow strong bump...<br />
    <br />
    Woods won the 97' Masters with a Cameron TeI3 Newport. <br />
    <br />
    His 13 other majors were won with his GSS Newport 2.

    Tiger would've won those majors with a tin can tied to a stick as a putter. The method has nothing to do with his drought. The in's do, as in injuries and infidelity's. Now as to why Dustin Johnson hasn't a major we can talk putter. And not because it's a Cameron, cause he can't putt and Tiger could b4 the wheels came off. I truly believe during Tigers run the putter kind didn't matter, he was just a beast

    Putter change may certainly be a factor, but i heard Foley screwed him up getting him to focus on his mechanics and "over" rotation.<br />
    Maybe he needs a 612 to get back on track........

    Maybe after Rory's W, Tiger will resurface with the trusty GSS (I'm picturing StarWars music and a Jedi robe as he approaches the first tee at The Farmers next year)

    Think your right with the 1980 date,,,,,, I bought a PING Anser 2 stainless along with a set of PING Eye irons around April 1982,while stationed at the old Williams AFB AZ, reason am sure of the date is soon after I married my ex-wife and then was sent to Torrejon AB Spain in June,,, I miss that putter!,,
