Desperate times call for desperate measures. Tiger Woods appears to be heeding that advice this week as he looks to recover a lost part of his game - the art of putting.

Woods struggled on the greens at Shinnecock Hills during the U.S. Open en route to a missed cut. Although he was hardly the only golfer struggling to read the greens, Woods needed 58 putts over the course of 36 holes.

During a practice round at TPC Potomac, Woods debuted a new putter.

He was working with the TaylorMade TP Ardmore 3, which is a mallet putter.

Woods has traditionally used a Scotty Cameron putter, which is a toe-weighted putter. In fact, Woods has won 13 of his 14 major championships with the Scotty Cameron.

However, his recent struggles have Woods searching for options.

With two major championships left this season, Tiger needs to find his range on the putting surface. A change with the putter could be a good start.
