The Winners' Bags

Retief Goosen at the Transitions Championship and Pat Hurst at the MasterCard Classic

Retief Goosen will often change golf balls depending on course conditions and he did so at the Transitions Championship, switching from TaylorMade's TP Red LDP to the higher-spinning TP Black LDP model due to the firm greens at Innisbrook. Pat Hurst, meanwhile, won the LPGA's MasterCard Classic with 14 Ping clubs in the bag. Hurst, however, did not carry a 5-iron, opting instead for three wedges.
