The Winners' Bags

Louis Oosthuizen at the British Open and Matt Bettencourt at the Reno-Tahoe Open

Louis Oosthuizen won the British Open at St. Andrews by expertly wielding his Ping Redwood Anser putter (a club personalized with a hosel nearly twice as long as the production model) on the massive greens of the Old Course at St. Andrews. Oosthuizen also had Ping's new Tour-S Rustique wedges in the bag. At the Reno-Tahoe Open, Matt Bettencourt captured his first PGA Tour win using clubs by TaylorMade, Callaway and Titleist, but perhaps most noticeable was the 85-gram oversized SuperStroke Fatso grip Bettencourt had on his Scotty Cameron by Titleist Newport Fastback putter.
