Glover, Lehman win with "old" drivers

Modern technology is wonderful and there is no doubt today's golf equipment is better than that of five years ago. Every once in a while, however, familiarity and confidence outweigh technological advances -- at least when you have the kind of game possessed by Lucas Glover and Tom Lehman.

Glover won the Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour using a Nike SasQuatch Sumo2 driver (the same driver he used to win the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black in 2009), a club that debuted in 2006 and currently sells in golf shops for under $150. Lehman also won with old technology, wielding a TaylorMade r7 SuperQuad, a driver that won Gold on the Golf Digest Hot List in 2007 (as did the Nike SasQuatch Sumo2). 

Of course, neither of these clubs was the most interesting equipment aspect of this week's winners. That honor goes to Lehman and his iron set which was comprised of five different models of irons -- six if you count his Vokey wedges.
