I've played Nike clubs for the last seven years, since I was in school at Texas, so I'm very comfortable with them. That made the transition [to the pro game] easier for me. I can't see switching. If you've won with the clubs, why switch? I know some people switch after they win, but some people are crazy.

The other thing I don't plan to switch is my caddie, Luis Sira. He's from Venezuela too. He came to the U.S. when he was 17 or 18 to go to school. He played baseball for a while; then someone introduced him to golf, and he started caddying. He's been on the Tour for 25 years and has caddied for some good players. He worked for Esteban Toledo for six years and Jose Coceres for a couple of years. This is our second year together. It's been a great combination. We have a lot of fun.
