Ryder Cup 2021: The clubs Team USA used at Whistling Straits

September 26, 2021

Sam Greenwood

Like the squad itself, the equipment in the bags of the victorious 2021 U.S. Ryder Cup team is an interesting mix—not just in terms of varying companies and models but in set makeup as well.

By the numbers, Titleist has the most golf balls, wedges and putters in play as well as hybrids (the only two that were used, by Patrick Cantlay and Jordan Spieth). TaylorMade has the most drivers, fairway woods and irons. Still, other than Titleist in balls and wedges, it is far from a dominant count. Ping, Callaway, Cobra, Srixon all had clubs in play, as did Bridgestone in golf balls and smaller companies such as Artisan (wedges) and SIK (putters). There also are three clubs from Nike in the bags despite the company exiting the equipment business in the summer of 2016.

The below is what was in the bag at Whistling Straits for the winning U.S. side.
