What's In Zack Johnson's Golf Bag at The Masters?

Zack Johnson held off a strong field on Sunday to take home the green jacket at the 2007 Masters in Augusta, Georgia. Do you want to know what he was carrying in his golf bag during his win?

Driver: Titleist Pro Titanium 905R 8.5°
3 Wood: Sonartec SS-3.5 15°
Hybrid: Titleist 503.H 19°
Irons:  (3, 4) Titleist 735.CM
Irons:  (5-9) Titleist 695CB
PW:     Titleist Vokey Design 48°
SW:     Titleist Vokey Design 54°
LW:     Titleist Vokey Design SM 60°
Putter: Seemore FGP
Ball:   Titleist New Pro V1x

Zach's only win before winning The Masters was at the 2004 BellSouth Classic. Zach was always around the top of the leader board through all 4 days of the golf tournament. He had to contend with Tiger Woods, Phil Michelson, Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen, Padraig Harrington, and others during his final round on Sunday. He showed great determination and confidence with his golf game all the way to the 72nd hole where he almost holed out his chip.

All he could do was sit a wait with Tiger Woods still on the course. Tiger had his chances to push it to sudden death, but he needed to birdie 2 of the last 3 holes. Tiger had a tough 12-foot right to left birdie putt on 16 that looked like it was going to fall, but it didn't. When Tiger dumped his approach shot on 17 into the front bunker it was over.

Zach Johnson finished +1 for the tournament and a 2-shot lead, which ties the tournament record for the highest finishing total in Masters history along side Jack Burke of the 1956 Masters. Zack will now be able to play in The Masters for the rest of his PGA career.

What a great finish to the Masters. Tiger Woods showed us he's human, but you have to give credit to Zack Johnson for coming up big down the stretch.
