At the 14th tee, little Leta Lindley reached for a nine-wood. Yes, a nine-wood. The driver in Lindley's bag, a 49-inch Callaway, comes up to approximately her neck, looking like an Even Bigger Bertha. A nine-wood feels more natural, particularly in situations where Lindley might otherwise use, say, a four-iron, as on Oakmont's 156-yard, par-three 14th.
