What's In Charles Howell III's Golf Bag?

Charles Howell III won the 2007 Nissan Open at Riveria Country Club last weekend, which was his second tournament win since the 2002 Michelob Championship at Kingsmill. Do you want to know what he was carrying in his golf bag during his win?

3 Wood: Callaway X 15°
Hybrid: Callaway FT 3H
Irons:  (4-PW) Callaway X-Tour
AW:     Callaway X-Tour 53°

Charles' 2007 start on the PGA tour has been his best since arriving on the PGA Tour 7 years ago. He has contended in almost every tournament he's played in this year with two 2nd place finishes in his previous 5 starts. Phil Mickelson needed a par on 18 to win the tournament, but ended up bogeying and he and Charles went into a playoff. Charles made a 5-foot par putt on the third playoff hole for the win. He carded a 65 on Sunday to force the playoff.

With the win Charles takes over the #1 spot on the money list ahead of Phil Mickelson in 2nd and Vijay Singh in the 3rd spot. He's now 16th in the world rankings. He also took over the #1 spot in the FedEx Cup standings. His paycheck for winning the Nisson Open was $936,000.
