What's In Scott Verplank's Golf Bag?

Scott Verplank won his 5th PGA Tour tournament last weekend at the 2007 EDS Byron Nelson Championship at the TPC at Four Seasons, TPC at Four Seasons-Las Colinas Irving, Texas. Do you want to know what he was carrying in his golf bag during his win?

Driver: TaylorMade r7 425 9.5°
3 Wood: Taylormade 200 Tour
5 Wood: Taylormade 200 Tour
Irons:  (3-PW) TaylorMade rac Forged
SW:     Titleist Vokey Design 55°
LW:     Titleist Vokey Design 59°
Putter: PING Anser
Ball:   Titleist New Pro V1

This was an emotional victory for Verplank because he grew up in Texas and had played several rounds with Byron Nelson when he was a kid. It was a tournament that he's been wanting to win for a long time. He would have loved to win it when Byron was still alive, but he felt he had his help from above from Byron.

It took everything Scott had to pull out his one shot victory over Luke Donald. Verplank birdied three straight holes and made an improbable par on 17 to secure the one shot victory over Donald. Scott finished with a 4-under 70 for a 13-under 267 total.

Eventhough Byron wasn't there to congratulate Scott for his victory, Byron's wife Peggy was there to do the honors. Scott took home $1,134,000 for the win and a custom-made motorcycle built by Orange County Choppers.

Scott Verplank played incredible golf down the stretch last weekend at the Byron Nelson Championship. I feel the par save on 17 is what won the golf tournament for him.
