The Winners' Bags

Graeme McDowell at the U.S. Open and Ai Miyazato at the ShopRite LPGA Classic

Graeme McDowell won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach GL using a Callaway FT-3 driver -- a club first introduced in 2005 and currently selling for $99.99. On the LPGA Tour, Ai Miyazato reached a professional pinnacle of another kind as she rose to the top of the Rolex Rankings with her fourth win of the season at the ShopRite LPGA Classic at Dolce's Seaview Resort in Galloway, N.J. Miyazato used 13 TourStage (sister brand of Bridgestone) clubs as well as a TourStage ball.
