Why does Tiger Woods have a Ping putter grip?

24 posts in this topic

on SportsCenter this morning it showed Tiger crouched down reading a putt and i noticed that his putter had a Ping grip. The club itself is a Titleist, but why does he have a Ping grip?

Its a pingman blackout grip. I used to use them on my old anser. They're very good grips, and they're very comfortable. Those grips really seem to wick away sweat good, too. Tiger has probably used them since he was an ameteur and prefers the feel. Scotty Cameron makes a studio design grip based on the pingman, but he has no obligation to use anything made by titliest.

Yep. Tiger is a creature of habit and has always used the black Ping putter grip on his Scotty Cameron. Might have something to do with being the best clutch putter of all time and he sees no reason to change.

I noticed that too. I thought it was interesting. It kind of makes you realize how ridiculous it is to match stuff.

He used a Ping Anser as a kid and in college and kept the same style grip when he turned pro, just he got a new putter

I think he used to do that but then PING started making them with the logo in black.

Lol, really? Wow, what a joke.

It looks like a sweet grip. I want to get that on my Scotty Cameron, just the Red or Black Titleist version of it.

Yes he does and he's far from the only person on the PGA Tour that has a headcover that isn't the same as the club it's protecting. It's much more common practice than people would think.

Not a joke really. If they paid me 90 million dollars a year they could tattoo a swoosh on my "shag bag".

He talked about that in a Golf Digest interview quite a while back. He always used a Ping putter since he was a kid and he doesn't want to change the feel in his hands. Needless to say its worked for him.

Heck yeah....dang things are high and Tiger has to save up for them. Poor fella has been forced to use the same putter for the last 14 majors he's won. Maybe he'll have enough dough to get a new wand every year like me and the rest of the hacks I play with.

Probably around 25 bucks installed. Depending on the grip. You dont have to send it in to the custom shop for a grip change, its overkill. Golf retailers like Golfsmith or Golf Galaxy usually have standard SC grips. The one that is simiar to the pingman Tiger uses is the studio deisgn grip, i belive. I use a Red Baby T on mine.

Maybe he lost the Cameron cover and didn't want to spend $85 to get a new one, lol.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
