PGA Championship Features 15 PGA Club Professionals with Titleist Ties (

When The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina hosts the 103rd PGA Championship this week, the 156-player field will consist of 99 of the world’s top 100-ranked players. It will also feature the “Team of 20” PGA Club Professionals who earned their berths in April at the 53rd PGA Professional Championship. Fifteen (75%) of them will be teeing up a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x  golf ball, including 12 who trust Titleist equipment throughout the bag and from tee-through-green.

Among those representing Titleist at the second major of the year are reigning PGA Professional Champion Omar Uresti, a PGA Life Member from Austin, Texas. Playing a NEW Pro V1 golf ball, TSi3 driver and bag full of Titleist equipment, Uresti won his second PGA Professional Championship title in five years (2017) after posting an 11-under 276 for a three-shot win. Uresti will be participating in the PGA Championship for the fifth time, which included a four-year run from 2015-18.
