What’s In The Bag: Xander Schauffele’s PGA Championship winning equipment

What golf clubs and ball does Xander Schauffele use? Our in-depth review of what’s in the bag of the PGA Championship winner, Olympic Gold medallist, and Ryder Cup star for 2024.

Xander Schauffele has been a roll away from victory multiple times in the past two years but he can now finally call himself a major champion after beating the strongest field in golf at Valhalla. Schauffele carded the lowest winning score in major history at 21-under-par, he ended a two-year break from the winning circle with a thrilling victory at the second men’s major of 2024.

Today's Golfer What's In The Bag is brought to you in association with Callaway Chrome Tour and Chrome Tour X golf balls.

The Californian recorded a record lowest round at a major at the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla. This means he is now the joint owner of Valhalla’s course record alongside Shane Lowry after they both beat Jose Maria Olazabal’s 24-year-old record by one shot. Xander became the third man to shoot 62 in a Major and the first man to make two 62s in Major history.

Xander Schauffele broke the Major scoring record and wins a record $3.3m at the 2024 PGA Championship.

The Callaway staffer, who is now a Descente ambassador, had eleven top-10 finishes in 2023, including a top-20 finish at all four Majors in 2023.

In 2024, Schauffele was runner-up twice and came close to some big paydays as he finished second at the Wells Fargo and was beaten in a playoff at the Tour Championship by fellow Ryder Cup star Viktor Hovland.

Xander Schauffele won the Genesis Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club.

In 2022, Xander shot his way to victory at the Genesis Scottish Open, his first Rolex Series title, and came just weeks after his victory at the 2022 Travelers Championship.

Schauffele, who’d also won the JP McManus Pro-Am event at Adare Manor, was in imperious form at The Renaissance Club as he won by one shot over fellow American Kurt Kitayama.

The American had waited three years for another solo title before his win at the Travelers, although he did win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans alongside Ryder Cup teammate Patrick Cantlay earlier in 2022.

The 30-year-old, who won the men’s golf gold medal at the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo, went winless for the entire 2023 even though he managed to rack up just over $8.4 million in winnings for the season.
