Tiger finally settled with the Method 001
« on: November 22, 2011, 11:41:05 PM »
After going from the Scotty Cameron to the Method 001, then to the Method 003; it looks like he's finally settled with the 001.  He's been consistently gaming it from his Fall series appearance through to his Australian tourney appearances. 

Any thoughts whether it'll be a marriage made in heaven or if it won't last through 2012?

If he putts like he did in the Sunday singles at the President's Cup then I think that 001 will be around awhile.  I never liked the way he looked with the 003.  I would guess you'll see him with an Anser head shape for most of the rest of his career, whether its stamped by Cameron or Nike... who knows.

IF he starts winning again, and can dictate what he uses again, I'd like to see him back with old faithful...

If he is struggling, I think that Nike has a lot more leverage in getting a method to stay in his bag.

That's perhaps the big secret.  I saw a number of photos, a couple of months ago on Nike's FB site, of a batch of Method 001's being made for Tiger.  Nothing said about special weightings.

Who knows?  It may be standard weight.

He's continuing to use the Method.  Glad to see him stick with the Nike.  Tiger's putter appears slightly different from the retail model, the edges look softer.  Weight is probably the same, but I think he has lead tape on the sole as he did with his Cameron.

I noticed that there was a lot of discussion forum ragging of Tiger's Method until the final round of the Humana tourney.  It was as if it was causing any or all of his woes.  Good to see him bounce back with a good score whilst using the Method.

Didn't he make changes to the putter through grip, shaft length and weight? Same logo, but the putter is basically different. We also don't know what exactly is going on in the milled out Method cavity filled with plastic. Maybe they changed that too.

It's heavily customised as are many other pro's putters.  I wouldn't go so far as considering it a Method in appearance only.  Just customised for Tiger.

What I mean is his Nike putter was constantly being altered to the point it performed differently for him from one tournament to the next. One week it's a certain length with a certain swingweight and the next the static weight etc are changed... His putter was changing and it seems he found a better putter.

I'll start by say that I'm not one of Tiger's army of fan bois.  But it's amazing how anytime he loses a tourney the calls come out from the critics for him to dump his Method.  The calls have been strangely quiet now that he is performing.

The "critics" are someone else's "fanbois".   ;)
