Ryder Cup 2021: The clubs Team Europe will use at Whistling Straits

September 20, 2021

Christian Petersen

The Europeans squad might be the underdogs, at least according to oddsmakers, but Team Europe will defend the Ryder Cup with a group of experienced players at Whistling Straits.

The 2021 European Ryder Cup team enters the matches with an interesting mix of equipment: By the numbers, Titleist has the most golf balls, drivers, wedges and putters in play. TaylorMade tops the fairway wood count and Ping leads in irons. Still, other than Titleist in balls and wedges, it is far from a dominant count with Callaway, Srixon, Mizuno, Odyssey and Cleveland all having some clubs in play, as does Bettinardi with its putter in Matt Fitzpatrick’s bag.

The below is what was in the bag at year-end for the players. Is it possible some things could change for Whistling Straits? Of course. But for now this is a good look at the implements the Euros will be using in Wisconsin.
