Putter Derby is our seasonlong competition pitting putter against putter to see which one will chalk up the most victories among golf's elite players. Each week, we'll total up the putters that prevail on the PGA Tour and European Tour, and see who is winning our horserace.

(Notes: The 2014 season runs December-November for the European Tour and October-September for the PGA Tour. Also, some putters come in multiple variations. The names and numbers in parentheses behind some winners indicate specific models).
