Want a piece of Tiger Woods memorabilia? Be prepared to write a big check.

Owning a piece of Tiger’s collection comes with a steep price. Look no further than when one of his backup putters sold for nearly $400,000 a year ago. Now, another one of his putters has been sold at a hefty cost.

Woods’ backup putter from circa 2005 was sold for $328,577 on Golden Age Auctions. There were 47 bids for the putter, which had the starting price set at $5,000.

The signed Scotty Cameron ‘Red Dot’ Newport 2 is the same model as the putter Woods used to win 14 of his 15 majors. This putter is said to have been made as a backup for Woods’ gamer around 2005. Woods usually tested the backups to ensure they were to his liking, but confirming that he used them is difficult because he did so in private, according to the PGA Tour.

This putter, which comes with a certificate of authenticity from Scotty Cameron, is said to have been signed by Woods during a 2005 auction for the Tiger Woods Learning Center.
