Posted: August 12, 2011
Team Titleist had a great time hanging out with Titleist Staff Professional Darin Stinson Wednesday afternoon at the PGA Championship.
Darin, the Head PGA Professional at Atlanta Athletic Club, gave us a lot of great insight into this week's major venue and the types of shots you need to be able to hit to succeed here, which you can watch in the above video.
One of 11 PGA Professionals at Atlanta Athletic Club, Darin also spoke about what it means to be the host PGA Professional at a PGA Championship, the PGA's flagship event. This year, 20 PGA Professionals are taking on Atlanta Athletic Club, having qualified via their finishes in the PGA Professional National Championship. Titleist Staff Professional David Hutsell, the PGA Director of Instruction at the Elkridge Club in Baltimore, won the event.
In total, there were eight Titleist PGA Staff Professionals in this week's field:
• David Hutsell (Elkridge Club, Baltimore)
• Faber Jameson (Falling River CC, Appomattox, Va.)
• Danny Balin (Burning Tree CC, Greenwich, Conn.)
• Rob Moss (Pepper Pike Club, Pepper Pike, Ohio)
• Craig Stevens (Steel Canyon GC, Sandy Spring, Ga.)
