What's In K.J. Choi's Golf Bag - 2008 Sony Open

K.J. Choi won his 7th PGA tour event last weekend by winning the 2008 Sony Open at East Waialae Country Club Honolulu, Hawaii. Do you want to know what K.J. was carrying in his golf bag during the win?

Driver: Nike SQ SUMO 5000 with Mitsubishi Bassara shaft
3 Wood: TaylorMade Burner TP 13°
Hybrid: Nike T 100 17°
Irons:  (3,4) Nike Ignite
Irons:  (5-PW) Nike Blades
SW:     Nike Pro Combo 54°
LW:     Nike SV 60°
Putter: Odyssey Tri-Hot 2 with SuperStroke Putter Grip
Ball:   Nike ONE Platinum Power Transfer Layer

Choi shot a final round of 1-over 71, which was the first time in 41 years that someone has shot a final round over par to win the tournament. K.J. went wire-to-wire with his win, but it wasn't easy because Rory Sabbatini made a run Sunday. Under the extremely windy conditions Rory managed to get 6 birdies, but also had a double-bogey. He 3-putted the par 5 18th from 65 feet, which was for eagle and it would have put him in a tie. K.J. finished at 14-under, which was 3 shots ahead of Sabbatini. Choi took home $954,000 for the win and a great start for the 2008 season.
