Tiger Tracker: Woods uses new putter, plays practice round at Quicken National

Tiger Woods was at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm Tuesday, warming up for the Quicken Loans National this week.

While Woods helped to found this event that benefits his foundation in 2007, this will be his first run at The National since 2015 and his first-ever PGA Tour tournament on this course.

Here is the latest:

Tuesday he ditched the custom Scotty Cameron Newport 2 and used a TaylorMade Ardmore 3 model while playing a practice round with Harold Varner III, Billy Hurley III and Rod Pampling.
