Tiger Woods has notably struggled with his putter on Tour this season. On Tuesday at the Quicken Loans National, he was experimenting with a mallet putter on the practice green.
Woods was using a TaylorMade Ardmore 3 putter at TPC Potomac instead of his Scotty Cameron Newport 2, for which he used to win 13 of his 14 major titles (he used another Scotty Cameron Newport model to win the 1997 Masters).
Here's a look:

For those who don't remember, Tiger used a Nike Method 003 mallet during the '11 Masters. Literally the only time I can recall him using something other than an Anser-style blade. pic.twitter.com/0I5VmBJtNB— Jonathan Wall (@jonathanrwall) June 26, 2018
Woods currently ranks 89th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting and T-80 in putting average.
