In the Bag: Kevin Stadler

KEVIN STADLER trusted a mixed bag of goodies to win his maiden PGA Tour title at the Phoenix Open last night.

The 33-year-old American, who won on the European Tour back in 2006 at the Johnnie Walker Classic, carded a final-round 68 to prevail by one shot over Bubba Watson and Graham DeLaet on 16-under.

Starting the final round two shots off the pace, Stadler reeled off three birdies in a row from the first to join Watson out in front and when rolling home a fourth at the ninth.

A disastrous double-bogey at the 11th and several short missed putts midway through the back nine looked to have ended the Baby Walrus' charge but he bounced back superbly with a decisive two-putt birdie from 80-feet at the short par-4 17th.

Interestingly, Stadler's bag is full of golden oldies with the likes of the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 driver, Callaway Big Bertha Steelhead III fairway wood and PING i15.

Stadler, a Srixon staff player, also uses Cleveland 588 Forged CB, 588 Forged wedges and Srixon Z-Star XV.
