Tiger Woods Switches to TaylorMade Putter

We first caught wind of the TP Black Copper Collection when Rory McIlroy won the Arnold Palmer Invitational by putting on an absolute clinic on the flat surface, courtesy of his TaylorMade TP Collection Black Copper Soto putter.

The first TP Collection putters were introduced in 2016, highlighted by classic-looking blades and mallets featuring aluminum and polymer-grooved (and downward sloping) face insert. New TP Black Copper putters sport the same features, including the insert, but have an antique copper finish look to it, making it appear much darker than the standard TP Collection putters.

On the bottom of the club are sole weights that allow custom fitters to increase or decrease head weight based on player preference, giving players the ability to customize their putter fully. There are four TP Black Copper putters in the line; Soto, Juno, Ardmore 3, and Mullen 2.

Now a few months out from the release of the TP Black Copper putters and Rory McIlroy’s stellar performance, Tiger Woods has switched to the TaylorMade TP Black Copper Ardmore 3 putter. Tiger won 13 of his 14 majors using his trusty Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter, but his putting statistics during this latest comeback have dropped dramatically.

He currently sits 44th in putting average, 32nd in overall putting average, and 121st in total putting. Since switching, he showed flashes of his former self and his first tournament with the TaylorMade TP Black Copper in play, the Quicken Loans National. Woods finished T4 at the Quicken Loans, his best performance since a T5 finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

If the switch to the TP Black Copper Ardmore 3 putter and improved play is any sign of things to come from Tiger, it is only a matter of time before we see win No. 80.
