The Winners' Bags

Phil Mickelson at the Northern Trust Open and Loren Roberts at the Ace Group Classic

Phil Mickelson and Loren Roberts each used a split set of irons in winning last week. At Riviera CC, Mickelson captured the Northern Trust Open with Callaway's X-Forged irons in his 3- and 4-irons and the company's prototype muscleback blade in the rest of his set. Roberts, meanwhile, won the Ace Group Classic with TaylorMade's rac LT model in his long irons (3-5) and 320 irons for the rest of the set.
