As the saying goes, drive for show and putt for dough. Well, the following putters will cost you some dough, and a lot of it. Here are 10 of the most outrageously expensive putters we’ve seen.
Damascus Grand by Odyssey Golf
Price Tag: $6,750
We get our ridiculously expensive putter list started with this spectacular looking Odyssey putter made of pure Damascus steel. According to Wikipedia, Damascus steel was a type of steel used for manufacturing sword blades in the Near East made with wootz steel. These swords were characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. Such blades were reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge. The steel is named after Damascus, the capital city of Syria.
It also uses Tungsten Flange Technology which lowers and deepens the center of gravity for a truer roll. This work of art also includes a Winn grip, leather headcover, and certificate of authenticity. This is only one of 15 that were ever produced.
Titleist Scotty Cameron Tiger Woods 1997 Masters TE I3
Price Tag: $20,000
A limited-edition Scotty Cameron replica putter commemorating Tiger Woods’ 1997 Masters win is now available for sale. The price tag? $20,000! There were only 270 of these made, one for each stroke Woods took during that magical week at Augusta. The “brand new” TE I3 with Tiger’s signature on the sole comes with its own rack and certificate of authenticity.
HOYA Crystal Putter
Price Tag: $5,555
Everybody needs a crystal putter. This one here is by Japanese-based Hoya and it is a half-sphere of some of the finest crystal around. It includes a leather headcover and maintenance instructions. We don’t exactly know what it feels like to putt with crystal, but for $5K you can find out.
Titleist Scotty Cameron Tour Putter 009
Price Tag: $9,500
Scotty Cameron makes some of the most beautiful putters in the game. They also happen to be some of the most expensive. Here is a custom 009 with black pearl finish and tour stamping. Is it worth just under $10 grand? Well, we’ll leave that up to you.
Limited Edition 1966 Original Ping Anser Scottsdale Version 2
Price Tag: $1,700
One of the most classic putters ever designed was the Ping Anser. This limited edition 1966 Scottsdale Version 2 is slightly used, but considering it’s over 50 years old it appears to be great condition.
Simon Cossar Fruitwood Metal-Headed Blade Putter
Price Tag: $165,000
Simon Crossar was actively making golf clubs from the late 18th century to the early part of the 19th century and was one of the first to start stamping his name into the clubs he made. The shaft on this extravagant putter is made of fruitwood and has a complementary fastened hosel. It fetched $165,000 when sold at auction.
Bettinardi CUJO 101
Price Tag: $2,000
Bettinardi is known for their precise milling patterns and their classically designed heads. This CUJO 110 prototype is a perfect marriage of both. Made of mild carbon, it’s only one of 30 ever produced. On the sole, you’ll find the words “This Dog Will Hunt.” That may be worth the $2,000 alone.
Tyson Lamb Crafted Allendale
Price Tag: $4,500
If you’ve never heard of Tyson Lamb putters, you have now. This one here is an Allendale German Stainless Steel with Damascus inlay. And yes, it’s spectacular. The attention to detail is second to none (note the spiro milled bumpers). For $4,500, it should be.
Titleist Scotty Cameron Tiger Woods Stainless Limited Edition
Price Tag: $20,000
Titleist released only 21 of this limited edition Scotty Cameron Newport 2.0 Tiger Woods edition putter. It was designed to the exact specifications of the now 14-time major winner. The asking price for it was $20,000. While it’s an amazing collector’s item, unfortunately, it doesn’t help you putt like Tiger!
Barth & Sons Golden Putter First Lady Special Edition
Price Tag: $150,000
Made with a gold shaft, leather grip, head with crystal inlays and plenty of other expensive features, the First Lady Special Edition of this putter runs a mere $150,000. It’s coated with 24-carat gold on the shaft and comes in a cherry wood case. This is a German-made club with a five-micrometer thick coating of 24-carat gold in the shaft. Made of cherry wood, it also has diamonds encrusted on it, thus accounting for its $150,000 price tag.
