Tiger's using O'Meara's putter at Birkdale

Tiger Woods is leading after round one of The Open Championship (tied
with John Huston).  And in case you missed it, he's not using that
Scotty Cameron TeI3 Newport.

He's using Mark O'Meara's "spare" putter, a Ping Anser 2 (stainless
steel).

And except for the lip-out on 18 (which was an awfully good putt), he's
pouring in the putts from everywhere.

Yeah, I heard that he started using the putter when he and O'meara played a
couse similar to Birkdale about a week ago in preparation for the Open.
O'meara fired a 63 but was beaten by Woods' 62.  Do you think it's possible
that they'll be talking about this round like they talked about the
pre-Masters "matches" which seem to decide the winner at Augusta.  Only
time will tell (should Tiger hold on for victory).

The way Mark is putting right now, he doesn't seem to need a spare putter. Its sure is nice to see a 40 something win not one but two major in one year!
