Winner's bag: Brandt Snedeker

By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Insider

It's rare that you see a golfer change something in his bag with the 54-hole lead, but that's exactly what happened on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open, when Brandt Snedeker swapped his TaylorMade SLDR prototype driver and went back to old faithful -- a TaylorMade Burner SuperFast he's been using for years. 

While the driver switch didn't produce another 63 -- Snedeker shot 9-under 63 on Saturday to take a one-shot lead going into the final round -- it was good enough for a 2-under 70 and a three-shot win at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

It's unclear why Snedeker went back to his old driver after 54 holes, but a lack of fairways hit on the back nine during the third round could have played a role.

Snedeker opened the round hitting 4 of 7 fairways on Saturday to go out in 6-under 29; however, the back nine was a different story, as Snedeker hit only one fairway to come home in 3-under 34. 

Snedeker put SLDR in play last week at the British Open and had been using it until Sunday's final round.
