Team Titleist at the 2022 PGA Championship: What's In The Bag?

When Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma hosts the 104th PGA Championship this year, the 156-player field will consist of 16 PGA Champions, 34 Major Champions, 3 World Golf Hall of Fame Members and 4 Ryder Cup Captains, and the top 70 players who have earned the most PGA Championship points through the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship.

It will also feature the "Team of 20" PGA Club Professionals who earned their tournament berths in April at the 54th PGA Professional Championship where Titleist was the most played golf balldriver, fairwayhybridutility ironiron, and wedge in the field of 312 teaching and club professionals.

Among those representing Titleist at the second major of the year is Jesse Mueller, who — playing a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball — chipped his way to a five-shot victory at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa to qualify for his first PGA Championship.

  • Mueller, 39, PGA General Manager of Grand Canyon University Golf Course in Phoenix, led a group of 20 PGA professionals who will compete next month in the season’s second men’s major at Southern Hills.
  • “I had another chip-in today,” said Mueller, who holed out for birdie on the 10th hole of his final round, “but my chipping the first three days was as good as it could be. I chipped in three times on the week and I was getting up and down all over the place.”
  • Mueller, who has previously played in one major championship (2012 U.S. Open), was the only player to finish the week in double digits at 10 under, after opening with rounds with 66-67-66. 
  • Of the 20 players who will be heading to the PGA Championship, 13 of them had at least one piece of Titleist equipment in their bag.
  • That includes Titleist Staff Member Alex Beach of Westchester Country Club (Harrison, N.Y.), who qualified for his fifth-consecutive PGA Championship after chipping in for birdie on the first hole of a 4-for-3 playoff.


“I’ve played it forever and I’m just very comfortable with it. I’m comfortable with the flight in the wind, especially this week, how there’s so much wind out there today and I can hit the ball not pretty much my full shot and go straight through the wind. That’s something that it’d be hard for me ever to change. I’m really comfortable with the ball, playing in the wind, how it controls, trajectory.”


  • 12 of the 20 qualifiers into the PGA Championship trusted a Pro V1Pro V1x or Pro V1 Left Dot ball, including the champion.
  • Seven qualifiers played a Titleist driver, six of them a TSi3 model. The most played driver on the PGA TOUR, TSi3 was also the top choice at the PPC (28%), with a total of 36% players using a TSi1TSi2TSi3 or TSi4 driver.
  • Titleist irons – the majority of them NEW T100T100•S and T200 models – were in the bags of eight qualifiers.
  • Those eight players also used a total of 27 Vokey Design wedges.
  • Four qualifiers used a Scotty Cameron putter.
