Watney Wins, Rickie Still Searching

Not surprisingly Nick Watney won this weeks PGA Tour stop. Here’s what Watney brought to the table. Highest ranked player in the field, a T7 last year at Aronimink Golf Club, one win already this year. At 12 to 1 odds this week if I was going to bet on golf, Watney seemed like easy money. Although it’s never easy to win on the PGA Tour, are there ever any sure bets? I say very rarely.

Just look at Rickie Fowler tied with Watney going into the final round. Rickie has troubles early and never recovers shooting a 74 and a T13. Watney plays solid bogey free golf hits some putts shoots 66 and wins by two shots over KJ Choi. Fowler will eventually win but getting that first win will be the toughest. Look at the top 5 of the leaderboard this week all players with wins except Overton. Watney definitely deserved the win and could be the hottest American going into the next Major the Open Championship in a few weeks.
 
Ever week its always interesting to see what the pros use to win that week. Seems most players use hybrid clubs these days. Easier to hit and more versatile even for pros. Right now I’m just testing out a few hybrids as my golf equipment is not quite set even though it’s the heart of the golf season here in Ottawa. Watney uses the new Titleist hybrid. The 910H is adjustable this year but I may test out last years 909H just because I should be able to pick one up for cheaper maybe at www.canadapost.ca/shopper/.

So here's what was in Watney's Bag at the AT&T National this week:

DRIVER: Titleist 910D3 (10.5°) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI7 shaft
FAIRWAY WOOD: Titleist 910F (15°) with Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board 93 shafts
HYBRID: Titleist 910H (21°) with an Aldila Voodoo XVS9 shaft
IRONS: Titleist 712 AP2 (3-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts
WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled (54°), TVD (60°) with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts
PUTTER: Scotty Cameron for Titleist Studio Select Fastback
BALL: Titleist Pro V1x
