The Winners' Bags - April 20, 2008

Boo Weekley at the Verizon Heritage, Tom Watson at the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am and Lorena Ochoa at the Corona Championship

Tom Watson is proof positive that you're never too old to look at your golf equipment. Watson won the Champions Tour's Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am by going back to the Odyssey White Hot XG 7 mallet he used with much success last year. Watson also added a 52-degree gap wedge to his bag last week. On the big tour, Boo Weekley took the Verizon Heritage using a split set of irons, employing Cleveland Golf's cavity-back CG Red model for his low irons and muscleback CG1 clubs in the short irons. Lorena Ochoa? Her equipment was as steady as her golf as she used the same set as she has all season.
