Editors' Note: At his press conference on Tuesday, Woods said that he had not changed putter grips Monday, as we reported earlier today. He said that his caddie, Steve Williams, accidentally put a training putter in the bag for Monday's practice round. Both the putter and the grip were different from the Scotty Cameron he uses in tournaments.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Tiger Woods, who took 128 putts in four rounds last week en route to a tie for 78th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, missed out on some much-needed practice with his tournament putter on Monday.

His caddie, Steve Williams, accidentally put a training putter in the bag for Monday's round. Woods said they were "too lazy" to go back and get the Scotty Cameron model that he usually uses in tournaments.

His normal putter, with the black Ping grip, was back in the bag on Tuesday.
