If I hear another analyst talk about Tiger&rsquo;s swing change and how it&rsquo;s impacting his game I&rsquo;m going to scream at my television.&#160; Okay, I already have screamed at my television.</P>&#160;</P>Look, I&rsquo;ll admit that it must be tough to change your swing and win major championships all within the same calendar year.</P>&#160;</P>But it&rsquo;s not the swing change that&rsquo;s killing Tiger.&#160; It&rsquo;s the putter change.&#160; At last July&rsquo;s British Open at St. Andrews Tiger announced, in a rather cavalier manner, that he was switching from his trusty Scotty Cameron Titleist putter to a Nike mallet putter.</P>&#160;</P>Wait a minute!!&#160; Would the Lone Ranger abandon Silver?&#160; Would Superman cast aside his cape in favor of a potato sack?&#160; </P>&#160;</P>Tiger won 13 of his 14 majors with the Scotty Cameron!&#160; </P>&#160;</P>Tiger isn&rsquo;t making any putts!&#160; It&rsquo;s amazing how well the experts say Tiger is swinging when he&rsquo;s rolling in putts!&#160; During his second-round 66 Friday at the Masters, Tiger got hot with his putter, not his irons.&#160; </P>&#160;</P>Bring back the Scotty Cameron and maybe the magic comes back too.&#160; Judge Smails on Caddyshack would never abandon the old Billy Baroo.&#160; BillyBillyBilly&#160; Tiger, say it with meScottyScottyScotty.</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P><BR/>
