Matt Kuchar (Turning Stone Resort Championship) and Lorena Ochoa (Navistar LPGA Classic) each won tour titles using drivers recently added to their bags. Kuchar put Bridgestone's J38 prototype (a 435cc version of the 460cc consumer version) in just this week, while Ochoa's Ping i15 has been in the bag since the middle of September.
