Accenture WGC Match Play – What’s In The Pros’ Bags?

As the Accenture World Golf Championship (not really a championship of the world but whatever…) Match Play event comes to a close this week, found an interesting article online showing what equipment the pros are using. All photos ripped from Golf.com:
