Home Tools of the trade: What was in the bag of winner's clubs over the weekend

Tiger Woods added a new fairway wood to his bag last week even though most of the conversation was centered on his putting. Woods needed only 100 putts over four rounds to secure his 17th WGC title and 76th career win on TOUR. He finished with 27 birdies for the tournament. In his final round, he was 8/14 for fairways hit in regulation, 10/18 for greens hit in regulation and needed just putts (26) to secure his victory. For the week: he was 30/56 fairways hit in regulation and 50/72 for greens hit in regulation.
