The Winners' Bags

Tiger Woods at the Memorial, In-Kyung Kim at the State Farm Classic and Bernhard Langer at the Triton Financial Classic

Tiger Woods made a pair of equipment changes at the Memorial and both paid off. Woods upped the loft on his Nike Dymo 380 prototype driver to 10.5 degrees and hit 52 of 56 fairways (ranked second) and changed to a set of Nike Forged Blade irons and finished T-3 in GIR for the week. In-Kyung Kim rolled in eight birdie putts with her Ping iWi B60 putter during the final round to win the LPGA's State Farm Classic while Bernhard Langer romped to victory at the Champions Tour's Triton Financial Classic using an Adams Speedline Driver to rank sixth in both driving distance and driving accuracy for the week.
