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.

warmup to the 2008 Open where he would drain a 12 footer to force an 18 hole playoff on the 72nd. then he drains a five footer to force sudden death 18 holes later and wins on the 91st hole of the Open.
