It's a tradition for The Masters champion to donate a piece of his winning equipment to Augusta National. Zach told me yesterday that he planned on donating his Vokey Design 54° wedge, the same one he used to chip the ball to tap-in range on the final hole. He hit a lot of great shots with that club, but the last chip is the one that everybody will remember. This will be at least the second Vokey Design wedge in the trophy case as the 2003 champion donated one of his as well. -- Voke

Masters champion visits the Tour Van

As you can imagine it has been a whirlwind few days for Zach Johnson. He is a genuinely nice kid with a great future. He isn't kidding when he says this whole Masters victory is surreal. I mentioned in a post last week that I wouldn't be surprised if Zach posted a Top 10 at The Masters. I guess he proved me right in a big way! He made a point to stop by the Titleist Tour Trailer Wednesday to thank everybody for the continued support he has received from the Tour Leadership team, "except The Voke. He hasn't done anything." We all had a good laugh. -- Bob Vokey

The new Masters champion in the Tour Van.

Jim Gormley, the head golf professional at Palos Verdes Golf Club in California who qualified to play in the 2006 Nissan Open on the PGA Tour, has recorded the first ace with the new Titleist 907D2 driver. Read all about Jim's hole-in-one, which came at a par 4 measuring more than 340 yards, at

Mata's Hat

We've received quite a few comments about the hats that I wear on Tour. Just so you all know, these hats are custom made for me so that I'm easily identifiable to the players on the driving range each week. Although Titleist has no plans to introduce this style to golf shops, your inquiries got me wondering what some of the other guys on Tour might look like in my signature hat. I think you'll agree after looking at these pictures that no one wears it like Mata! Let me know what you think. Cheers! -- Steven Felix Mata
