The Winners' Bags

Stephen Ames at the Children's Miracle Network Classic and Michelle Wie at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational

If 27 straight outs makes for a perfect game in baseball, having all 28 clubs (plus both golf balls) in the bags of last week's PGA and LPGA Tour winners made for a perfect weekend for Nike Golf. Stephen Ames (Children's Miracle Network Classic) and Michelle Wie (Lorena Ochoa Invitational) each used Nike's VR Blade irons and VR wedges as well as the company's new Method putter in their victories. For Ames, it was his fourth career PGA Tour win while Wie won her first LPGA title.
