The Winners' Bags

Stewart Cink at the British Open and Bo Van Pelt at the U.S. Bank Championship

It was a big week for Nike as for the second major in a row one of the company's staff players captured their first major championship. Stewart Cink followed Lucas Glover as the second player to win a Grand Slam event using a square driver with the Nike Sumo2 Tour and also used a Nike Oven prototype putter (as did Glover). The company also got good news at the U.S. Bank Championship as Bo Van Pelt captured his first tour title using Nike's new One Tour ball.
