Tiger visited the Nike Golf Tour Van at the AT&T National yesterday, and from the photos that Nike Golf tweeted out and posted on their Facebook page yesterday and today it looks like he might be switching back to the Method 001 putter (click images to enlarge).
After his press conference yesterday, Tiger and Nike Tour Rep Rick Nichols visited Nike Tour Van Tech Ben Giunta in the tour van (interesting to see Tiger’s press conference behind him on the monitor while he was in the van):
Tiger was checking loft and lie options for his Method putter:
It looks like the tour van made several new models of the Method 001 for Tiger:
Tiger first used the Method 001 in competition at last year’s Open Championship at St. Andrews. He then experimented with the Method 003 mid-mallet at last year’s Ryder Cup. He then gamed the Method 003 in competition at the Australian Masters, and has been using that model in competition ever since. But with yesterday’s tour van visit, it looks like Tiger is back to experimenting with the Method 001. We don’t know when Tiger will be back in action on the course, but when he is we’ll be looking to see which Method putter model he’s gaming — the 001 or 003.
