The Winners' Bags - March 2, 2008

Ernie Els at the Honda Classic and Lorena Ochoa at the HSBC Champions

With wins last week, Ernie Els took a step toward his stated (if somewhat ambitious) goal of becoming the No. golfer in the world while Lorena Ochoa solidified her hold as the best player in women's golf. Els won the Honda Classic using a set of Callaway's prototype muscleback irons, while Ochoa's first outing with a Ping Redwood ZB putter resulted in 72 holes with zero three-putts during an 11-stroke romp.
