Brittany Lincicome plays a Titleist driver, and AP2 irons.

Ariya plays AP2 irons (5-P), and Vokey wedges.

Bronte Law is Titleist minus the putter.

Aditi Ashok appears to be sponsored by Titleist, including the bag and hat.

Jenny Shin, Emily Pedersen, Jimin Kang, Amelia Lewis, and Mariajo Uribe have full bags I believe.

Jennifer Hahn plays irons and wedges.

Good job on the research! Was this garnered from first hand experience "checking" out player bags?

As someone who currently plays a nearly 100% Titleist bag, I am disappointed that Titleist is not really active in the women's sponsorship program for LPGA and Symetra tour players -- at least with the North American players.

Garnered from a combination of first hand knowledge and a little research. One of the reasons I'm such a big fan is that the majority of the players have a game that's similar to mine (as far as distances and club selection). Obviously the similarities pretty much end there. Lol. I try to keep up with what's in their bags.

As noted above, the company is very active on the KLPGA. Given the level of interest in Korea, I guess it makes sense to spend the dollars where they'll get the maximum number of eyeballs each week.

More has to do with they are owned by a Korean company.  In women’s golf in general there is little ROI on spending big money on endorsements

Acushnet was owned by Fila Corp. It's now a public company listed on the NYSE.  

Regardless, a company based in Massachusetts should be more sensitive to supporting Women's golf on a similar basis as the men's game -- even if it's just to sponsor a handful of the women.  The amount of sponsorship for someone like Webb Simpson could sponsor 3-4 LPGA players.  Not to pick on Webb ... but using him as a comparison of a moderately sponsored tour pro.

While it would be nice to see companies help grow the game their main purpose is to make a profit. This means sponsorships, advertisements, etc where they get the best roi. Sponsoring a segment of golf that doesn’t get much tv time isn’t always the best option.

With that said titleist does a great job with youth and to an extent college golf with their programs. Imo it’s one of the reasons guys like Spieth, JT and others stay with titleist

Giving PGA players sponsor $ is why we spend $500 on a driver. If they gave a couple dollars to the LPGA I guess the driver goes up to $502. $500 must be their breaking point, lol.
