Scotty Cameron is known for crafting some of the world’s highest quality, most valuable putters on the market. An average Scotty Cameron putter can easily set you back $400 or more.
And a brand name isn’t the only thing behind that high price point. Advanced designs, precision engineering, and premium materials have been setting Scotty Cameron putters apart from the competition since 1992.
But there are a handful of clubs that take things to the next level. These clubs are so rare and valuable, they’d make even the highest rolling golfers blush.
These are the top 10 most valuable Scotty Cameron putters ever sold.
1st, 2nd & 3rd Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Tiger Woods’s Titleist Scotty Cameron Backup Putters – $393,300, $328,576 & $154,928
Tiger Woods has taken home 14 of his 15 major championships with a Scotty Cameron Newport II at his side. But these didn’t come factory standard.
Scotty worked personally with Tiger to ensure each club fit him like a glove. This is why he had a couple backups produced for practice and emergency situations.
One of those Newport II backups sold in August 2021 for a whopping $393,300, making it the highest selling putter ever. And while this wasn’t the club Tiger used to win the Masters in 2002, it does look just like it. It even features the same “cherry bombs” on the club head that reveal where Cameron drilled holes to make the putter slightly lighter in Tiger’s hand.
A year after that club sold, another of Tiger’s Newport 2 backup putters went up for auction. But this time around it fetched a more modest $328,576.
Rounding out our top three list is yet another Tiger Woods Newport II backup putter. Though this one sold in 2020 for ‘only’ $154,928. While that may seem like a deal when compared to its two, higher-priced, counterparts, its selling price is still nearly three times that of the next club on our list.
For now, there seems little chance that the top three most valuable Scotty Cameron putters will lose their spots. That is, until Tiger decides to sell the one, true Elder Wand. Experts think it could fetch up to $10 million.
4th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Bernhard Langer’s 1993 Masters Tournament Scotty Cameron Putter – $59,097.60
While Bernhard Langer eked out a Masters victory in 1985, he’d always struggled with his putting game. At the same time, Scotty Cameron was trying to make a name for himself outside of the big brands where he’d launched his career as a putter designer.
In the early 90s, Langer ran into Scotty and asked him to design something for him that would fit his grip. The result was a Classic I, featuring a black oxide finish with Langer’s initials etched on the club face.
Bernhard Langer went on to win the 1993 Masters with that early Scotty Cameron putter. But Langer wasn’t the only one who won that day. Scotty Cameron’s reputation subsequently skyrocketed. And the rest is history.
So, it’s no surprise that Langer’s 1993 Masters-winning Classic I has the number four spot on our list of most valuable Scotty Cameron putters ever sold. At nearly $60,000, it may seem like a bargain when compared to Tiger’s Newport II backups. But its value towers over everything else on our list – and for good reason.
An easy argument could be made that Langer’s Classic I is the single most important Scotty Cameron putter ever crafted.
5th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Titleist Scotty Cameron Tiger Woods Stainless Limited Edition – $20,000
Yes. It’s another Tiger Woods Scotty Cameron putter. But this time it isn’t one that Tiger’s ever had in his bag.
Instead, it’s a limited edition, Scotty Cameron Newport II that’s designed to the exact specifications of Tiger’s own club. SCI produced these replicas so anyone could own a putter just like Tiger – or at least twenty-one people willing to shell out $20,000.
Unfortunately, owning a putter that’s identical to Tiger’s won’t give you his skill. You’ll need to hit the practice green for that.
6th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Titleist Scotty Cameron Tiger Woods 1997 Masters TE I3 – $20,000
We promise this is the last time you’ll see Tiger’s name on this list.
In 1997, a 21-year-old rookie named Tiger Woods exceeded everyone’s expectations (except for maybe his own) and won his first Masters – by twelve strokes. That win changed the game of golf forever.
Scotty Cameron commemorated Tiger’s seminal win by producing 270 limited edition replicas, complete with Tiger Woods’ signature etched into the putter’s sole.
When they were initially released, these limited edition clubs would run you $20,000. While that’s a hefty price to pay for a putter, this is more than a putter. It’s a piece of golf history.
7th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Titleist Scotty Cameron Tour Putter 009 – $9,500
There are several varieties of the Scotty Cameron Tour Only 009 putter, though each one features brushed black carbon and a unique design on the cavity.
The 009 in the name (and on the club) is a reference to San Diego’s zip code – the location of Cameron’s studio. And you’ll need to be comfortable with San Diego-level prices if you’re going to pick one of these up since they’ll set you back around $10,000.
8th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Titleist Scotty Cameron Tour My Girl Putter – $8,800
Since 2002, Scotty Cameron has released a limited edition (500-1,500 produced each year) line of ladies putters inspired by the girls in his life. Their unique look has made these Scotty Cameron ladies putters highly sought after collector’s items.
The designs and finishes have changed through the years, making some editions much more valuable than others. But you won’t find one in good condition for much less than $2,500. Browse eBay and you’ll see that they can sell for as high as $6,000-$8,000.
9th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Titleist Scotty Cameron Damascus Grand – $6,750
Damascus steel is most famous as a metal used for crafting swords. But put something like that in Scotty Cameron’s hands and he’ll inevitably craft a one-of-a-kind putter.
The Scotty Cameron Damascus Grand is a premium putter that’s designed to feel as great as it looks. And with a deep center of gravity, it’ll help you achieve that smooth, rolling putt that you’ve been longing for.
That’s why you won’t be able to put one in your bag unless you’re willing to part with $5,000 to $6,000.
10th Most Valuable Scotty Cameron Putters: Scotty Cameron Circle T Putter – $5,000 to $40,000
In the mid-1990s, a box of putters intended for the PGA Tour went to the LPGA Tour instead. This mishap led Cameron to put a Circle T stamp on putters intended for the men’s tour.
Such a simple, unassuming beginning. But that Circle T stamp denoted something more to many players. It set tour putters apart from their retail counterparts. And it’s one of the reasons that their values increased to sometimes astronomical levels.
Depending on the head material and how the putter is stamped, a Circle T Scotty Cameron’s value can fluctuate wildly. So if you’re looking to feel like a pro (even if you can’t play like one), then you may want to look into picking up your own Circle T. It’ll only set you back $5,000 to $40,000.
