Tiger switches putters

Surprise, surprise.

After a wretched three three-putt -- and 35 putts -- day and 99 putts in three days, Tiger Woods has benched his new Method putter  in favor of his trusty Scotty Cameron. The one that stood by him for 13 of his 14 majors. The Nike putter was not in his bag.

He was asked specifically after the third round if his putting woes at St. Andrews -- where he ran away with Opens in 2000 and 2005 --  had anything to do with "the new stick."

" No, no, I just need to have better speed,'' he said.

Guess he slept on it and decided he could find that speed better with the Scotty Cameron.

Wonder if you could have gotten odds on a possible change  at Ladbrokes Saturday night?
