My Bag For The British Open

The past year has been a wonderful experience as the Open champion. The best part has been the feeling of satisfaction from that huge win. Returning to St. Andrews to defend will be awesome!

For the Old Course, I'll probably go to a 54-degree wedge in place of the 52 and 56, and add a three- and four-iron in place of my current three-iron [which plays between a typical three and four]. On a links course, spin and wedge control mean less than imagination and trajectory, so I'll give up the extra wedge in favor of the flexibility in the long irons.

And I always use a lower spinning ball, Nike's One Tour D, which works well in the cold and wind of the Open links courses.
