The Winners' Bags

Camilo Villegas at the Honda Classic and Fred Couples at the Toshiba Classic

Camilo Villegas serves as proof that strong players don't only use low-lofted drivers. The Colombian won his third PGA Tour title at the Honda Classic using a 10.5-degree Cobra S9-1 Pro S (one of nine Cobra bats in the bag). On the Champions Tour, Fred Couples won his second consecutive title at the Toshiba Classic, leading the field in driving distance using a TaylorMade R9 460 and Bridgestone B330-S driver-ball combination.
