Filling with putty presents two challenges; it won't match the surrounding wood. Even if it's the same color, it won't have any grain and will appear monochromatic. It also won't absorb oil in the same way the surrounding wood will.

Any chance you can rout out a recess and work in a piece of marquetry?

Is the table top solid wood or veneered? If it's solid wood much of it can be sanded out. The rest can be bleached. If it's veneered I've had better luck chiseling out the spot and burning in the void with a shellac stick. Then use a graining pen to blend the grain in. The spot never goes away but it can look a lot better.

I would cut it out with a router on a straight edge and glue a best match piece in and sand flush. Unless its not too deep.

It's teak. It's worth the trouble.

If the top is solid teak, use a very sharp gouge and cut out the effected area. Then use the same gouge and cut a section out of the bottom of the same board and glue it into to top.

I have a small tool that does this for nails. Great idea.
