2005 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic

Justin LeonardJustin Leonard may have just switched to Nike, but it didn't hold him back at all as he won his second event, the 2005 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, with the new sticks:

Driver Nike Ignite (410cc) 9.5°
3, 4 Wood Nike Ignite T-60
Irons (3-PW) Nike Forged Blade
Wedges (SW, LW) Nike Forged 54°, 58°
Putter Scotty Cameron Newport
Ball Nike One Black

There was speculation that Leonard, one of the better wedge players on tour, hadn't yet switched to Nike wedges, but that's not true. People may have confused Leonard with Phil Mickelson, the new Callaway poster boy, who still plays with his Vokeys. How such confusion could occur is beyond me. After all, Leonard doesn't even need a training bra! At any rate, it looks like that equipment change wasn't such a bad idea after all.
