My Bag: Henrik Stenson for TPC Sawgrass

"I'm trying to get a little piece of everybody. Actually, I have a contract with TaylorMade for my driver and the bag, and a ball-shoe-glove deal with Titleist FootJoy. I stick with what I like. The way I'm playing lately, I might have to start looking around. You can see the dings on my putter from where I've pounded on it I'm very happy and proud to have won at Sawgrass. I'm going to try to come back and be in decent shape so I can put up a strong defense. It feels as if I have been hit-or-miss for the last couple of years. It gets frustrating. In the past, in 2005 or '06, I was consistent, but I didn't win. I've win the last two years, but the consistency hasn't been there. You can't have everything."

Banana Case: "I found it in a  supermarket in Japan. I had been complaining to my caddie, Fanny [Sunesson], about the squashed bananas in my bag. It was more of a fun thing when I bought it, but then we realized it isn't bad. It's practical, and it works."

Key Chain: "It says KISS MY ASS in Gaelic. That's the only phrase I've learned from Padraig [Harrington]. A few years ago I played a pro-am with a couple of Irish guys, and I repeated the saying. I saw them at the dinner table this year, and they gave me the key chain. They found it in the Dublin airport, so they bought it and gave it to me. I put it in the bag and kind of forgot about it. It's for good luck, but it hasn't been working too well so far."

Energy Bars: "I like BumbleBar, and the other I use is Green+. They're good for energy and come in lots of flavors."

Swedish Coins: "I've been marking  y golf balls with one-krona coins for the last few years. It's the coin you usually end up with when you get change back, so I chucked a few in the bag."

Tees: "I just use tee pegs to repair greens instead of a divot tool. I'm a master craftsman with a peg. Plus, you can always find one. I don't like walking around with a bog metal thing in my pocket."
