What's In Cristie Kerr's Golf Bag? - 2007 US Open

Cristie Kerr won the women's 2007 US Open this last weekend at Pine Needles Lodge at GC Southern Pines, North Carolina. Do you want to know what she was carrying in her golf bag during the win?

Driver:  Ping Rapture 10°
4+ Wood: Callaway Big Bertha
5 Wood:  Callaway Big Bertha
7 Wood:  Callaway Big Bertha
Irons:   (4-PW) Callaway X-16
SW:      Callaway 52°
LW:      Callaway 58°
Putter:  Ping Craz-e
Ball:    Titleist New Pro V1

Cristie was the 54-hole leader going into Sunday's round. In her final round she made a 18-foot birdie putt on 14 to take back the lead from Ochoa. Ochoa made a series of mistakes down the stretch that she couldn't recover from. Kerr shot a 1-under 70 final round to win by 2 strokes over Lorena Ochoa. Cristie finished the tournament at 5-under par 279 for her 10th career LPGA victory.

Cristie had a premonition at the beginning of the season that she was going to win the US Open at Pine Needles this year. She said to hold of Ochoa and win the US Open was what dreams are made of. Kerr took home $560,000 for the win.
