What's In Tiger Woods' Golf Bag - 2008 Arnold Palmer

Tiger Woods won his 64th career PGA tour event last weekend by winning the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando, Florida. Do you want to know what Sean was carrying in his golf bag during the win?

Driver: Nike SQ Tour 7.5°
3 Wood: Nike SQ II 15°
5 Wood: Nike SQ II 19°
Irons:  (3-PW) Nike Blades with True Temper Dynamic Gold X-100
SW:     Pro Combo 56°
LW:     SV Tour 60°
Putter: Scotty Cameron by Titleist TW prototype
Ball:   Nike One Platinum featuring Power Transfer Technology

Tiger's win ties him with the great Ben Hogan on the all-time winning list. He's now chasing Jack Nicklaus with 73 wins and then Sam Snead with 82 wins.

Tiger started off the tournament with some control problems, but managed to get things back on track on Friday with a 2-under 68 in very windy conditions. He shot a 66 on Saturday to put him in a 5-way tie for first and in the last group with Sean O'Hair, who had won the PODS Championship the week before. O'Hair got into the last group by shooting a 7-under 63.

Tiger looked solid all day Sunday except for a 3-putt from 5 feet. Going into 18 Tiger was tied with Bart Bryant at 9-under. Woods hit his 3-wood down the left side of the fairway to open up his approach shot to the green. His approach shot from 167 yards landed pin high about 24 feet left of the pin. He had a downhill left to right putt to negotiate a tie or a win. Long story short Tiger drained the 24-footer for his 6th consecutive win and he left everyone in sheer disbelief that he did it again.

Tiger took home $1,044,000 for the win and added 25,000 points to his first place point total in the race for the FedEx Cup. All I can say is amazing! Tiger truly is immortal among the golfing world.

What's In Sean O'Hair's Golf Bag - 2008 PODS

Sean O'Hair won his 2nd career PGA tour event last weekend by winning the 2008 PODS Championship at Copperhead Golf Course in Tampa Bay, Florida. Do you want to know what Sean was carrying in his golf bag during the win?

Driver:   TaylorMade Burner 9.5°

Sean shot a final round of 2-under 69 winning by 2-strokes. O'Hair had a little help thanks to Stewart Sink's meltdown on the final 4 holes. Stewart played the final 4 holes in 4 over pair and basically handed the tournament to O'Hair on a silver platter. O'Hair finished his round strong with a birdie and two good pars. Sink finished in a 6-way tie for 2nd place. Sean took home $954,000 for the win and a great start for the 2008 season. The win also gave him 2,500 points towards the FedEx Cup.

Top 10 Hottest Golf Clubs Feb 2008

Here are the Top 10 Hottest Golf Clubs for the month of Feb 2008. These were the hottest golf clubs in demand during the month of February... and yes Ping has the number 1 spot again.

1. Ping Eye 2 Iron set
2. Callaway Golf X-20 Iron Set
3. TaylorMade r7 Iron set
4. Callaway Golf X-18 Iron Set
5. Ping G5 Iron set
6. TaylorMade RAC OS Iron set
7. TaylorMade Burner 460 Driver
8. Titleist 905R Driver
9. Titleist Vokey Spin Milled Wedge
10. Ping G5 Driver

How can The Ping Eye 2 iron set continue to stay on top? I continue to say this, but these golf clubs must be something else for them to remain in the number spot for so long. I've received additional comments from golfers and they swear by the Ping brand. If you play Ping irons I'd like to hear from you.

The hottest golf club for this month is the Titleist Vokey Spin Milled Wedge, which made it's debut in the top 10 coming in at #9. The TaylorMade r7 460 Driver dropped off the top 10 list this month, but Taylormade still has 3 golf products in the top 10 as does Ping.

Just in case you missed it, here's my post of The Hottest Golf Clubs Jan 2008, which is how the top 10 clubs finished for the month of Jan 2008.
