Winner's Bags -- Baddeley, Tseng, Langer

Although Aaron Baddeley is normally known for his stellar putting, it was Badds' accurate iron play that helped propel him to victory at the Northern Trust Open. Baddeley, now a three-time PGA Tour winner, used Adams' new Idea Pro Black MB irons at Riviera. "I'm definitely striking the ball beautifully, hitting lots and lots of greens, which makes it easier and gives me lots of birdie opportunities," said Baddeley after the third round. For the week Baddeley hit 72.2 percent of the greens in regulation to rank third in that department for the week.

On the Champions Tour, Bernhard Langer used his trusty Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball Long putter (on which he also draws a black line across the two white spheres for added alignment) to lead the field in putts per GIR. Langer also used Adams' Speedline F11 driver--a silver medal winner on the 2011 Golf Digest Hot List. Yani Tseng rounded out the big week for Adams Golf in winning the LPGA Thailand event will 11 Adams clubs in her bag.
