Jhonattan Vegas: My bag for The Players
I've played Nike clubs for the last seven years, since I was in school at Texas, so I'm very comfortable with them. That made the transition [to the pro game] easier for me. I can't see switching. If you've won with the clubs, why swtich? I know some people swich after they win, but some people are crazy.
The other thing I don't plan to do is swtich my caddie, Luis Sira. He's from Venezuela too. He came to the U.S. when he was 17 or 18 to go to school. He played baseball for a while; then someone introduced him to golf, and he started caddying. He's been on the tour for 25 years and has caddied for some good players. He worked with Esteban Toledo for six years and Jose Coceres for a couple of years. This is our second year together. It's been a great combination. We have a lot of fun.—Jhonattan Vegas

"I've had it in my bag since the first tournament of the year. My caddie and I keep it as a way of carrying around our Venezuelan roots. It's something fun to have just in case we need to use it."
"A handicapped kid in Argentina gave me this when I was playing in the Argentina Open in December. He told me that if I put this in my bag, I good things would happen, and I ended up winning the tournament. I've had it in my bag ever since."
