Justin Rose closed out the 113th U.S. Open Championship at Merion G.C. for his first major championship.

Here's what's inside the bag of the U.S. Open champion.

Ball: TaylorMade Lethal 

Driver: TaylorMade R1 (Matrix 6m3), 9.5 degrees

3-wood: TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Tour HL, 16.5 degrees 

Irons (3-6): TaylorMade RocketBladez Tour; (7-PW): TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB 

Wedges: TaylorMade ATV (52, 56, 60 degrees) 

Putter: TaylorMade Spider Blade 

Did you know? Rose was the first player to use the Lethal ball back when it was under the prototype name Project 5. He also switched to a 37-inch counterbalanced TaylorMade Spider Blade at the Players.
