PGA Championship Equipment Round-Up
As the 105th PGA Championship gets underway at Oak Hill, many professionals and brands have introduced new gear specifically for the tournament, with new bags, clubs and apparel being seen at the venue in New York. Here’s what you can expect to see at Oak Hill for the second Major of the year.

Also, because the city of Rochester used to be known as the “flour city,” there are hints of wheat sprinkled throughout the bag’s design.

DeChambeau, who recently switched to a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver, something which he has used since February, also revealed his jaw-dropping stock yardages earlier this month. In that video, one of the clubs was indeed the BRNR Mini Driver, which went 305 yards.
