In the Bag: Gary Woodland

Gary Woodland coasted to a nine-point win in the modified Stableford format PGA Tour event at the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Marking the American's second victory on the PGA Tour, the Callaway staff player finished with 44 points in the format that awards eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse.

Woodland, also the 2011 Transitions Championship winner as a tour rookie, earned $540,000 for the victory and gains a spot at this week's PGA Championship.

Despite looking comfortable midway down the back nine, Woodland found trouble on the par-4 14th and looked certain to make bogey, or even double bogey, which would have brought him right back to the field.

Standing in the waste area to play his second to the par-4, with pine needles and sagebrush short right of the green, Woodland hit his ball 20 yards over the green into the rough before watching his 58-foot chip roll against the pin and into the cup.

Remarkably, Woodland chipped in three times for the week. 

He added a 21-foot birdie putt on the next hole to open up an eight-point lead over Byrd and closed with a birdie on the 616-yard 18th when he drove 338 yards into the middle of the fairway, hit his approach 231 yards just in front of the green, chipped to 2 feet and tapped in for the win.

Woodland relied on Callaway RAZR Hawk driver, RAZR Fit Xtreme fairway wood, X Prototype Tour Utility, RAZR X MB irons, Odyssey Versa #1 and HEX Chrome+.
