Unsurprisingly, it is believed to be the most expensive golf club ever sold.

The 2002 Scotty Cameron went under the hammer through Golden Age Golf Auctions having reportedly spent the last 18 years at various locations in the Far East, the Middle East and Europe.


The club was produced specifically by Cameron for Woods and is a red dot Newport II 2002 model – one of only seven such back-ups believed to be in existence. It was accompanied by a 2003 letter from Cameron himself declaring its authenticity.
