Last month, Tiger Woods capped off a terrific comeback season with a victory at the Tour Championship – his 80th career PGA Tour title, leaving him just two short of Sam Snead’s all-time record.
As the winner of the season finale at East Lake, Woods was awarded the Tour’s most unique trophy, a replica of “Calamity Jane,” Bobby Jones’ famous putter.
The gold stick Tiger posed with after the tournament, alongside Justin Rose, was basically a prop. Today he got the real deal in the mail, which arrived in a case with a gold trophy plate that read: “This commemorative putter is an exact copy of Bobby Jones’ original putter. It has a 66 degree lie and 8 degree loft. Jones received the original from in 1920 from James Maiden. That putter and a copy were employed by Jones to capture 13 Major Championships and the Grand Slam in 1930.”
Woods wrote to his social media channels, “Look what just came in the mail today. Thank you to everyone for making number 80 so special.”
