Camilo Villegas' golf clubs
Fred Vuich

This Colombian-born 27-year-old wrapped up last season on a serious roll. He captured both the BMW Championship and Tour Championship (two of four FedEx Cup events), earned $4.4 million in prize money and pocketed a cool $3 million bonus based on his final FedEx Cup standing. Read on for his gamers.

Favorite Club
"I'd better love all 14. I eventually have to hit them all, and if I dislike one, I'll just get over the ball with a bad attitude, and the outcome won't be great."

Shaft grab bag
"There are so many shafts, flexes, weights, kick points and torques that you need to get fitted for in order to get the right match."

Special ball mark
"I've had an Australian fifty-cent piece since '04. It's kind of big, and that's why I like it. I can see it from both sides."

Oldest club
"I can't even tell you. It's probably my Cameron putter. I've been using it for a year and a half, almost two years." Tools of His Trade
