124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2


The Winners' Bags - March 30, 2008

March 30, 2008

Although Lorena Ochoa certainly is no stranger to the LPGA winner's circle, Andres Romero found it for the first time on the PGA Tour. Both, however, had help from their putters. Ochoa used a Ping Redwood ZB that she put in play for the first time less than a month ago, while Romero wielded a Guerin Rife Barbados -- giving Rife its first PGA Tour win of the season after garnering a pair of victories earlier this year on the Champions Tour.
