What's In Padraig Harrington's Golf Bag? - Open Championship

Padraig Harrington won the 2007 Open Championship two weekends ago at Carnoustie Golf Links Angus, Scotland. Do you want to know what he was carrying in his golf bag during his win?

Driver: Wilson Dd6 7.5°
3 Wood: Callaway X Hot
5 Wood: Wilson Staff FWS
Hybrid: Wilson Staff Dh6 19°
Irons:  (4-PW) Wilson Staff Pi5
SW:     Wilson Staff TW7 52°
LW:     Wilson Staff TW7 60°
Putter: Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball Blade
Ball:   Titleist New Pro V1x

Padraig won in a 4-hole playoff against Sergio Garcia. Harrington shot a 4-under 67 while Garcia shot a 2-over 73 with both finishing at 7-under par. The Open Championship playoff is 4 holes aggregate score. Padraig won by one after the 4th hole, but Sergio had a chance to tie with a 25-foot put that just barely missed.

Padraig was the first Irishman to win the British Open in 60 years. Andres Romero from Argentina finished at -6 and if it wasn't for his 2-double bogeys on the back nine he would have taken home the Claret Jug. Padraig took home $1.5 million for the win.
