This week’s PGA Championship is at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, a Jack Nicklaus design in the heart of Kentucky. So, with the Bluegrass State on their minds, the designers at Callaway, Cobra and TaylorMade have drawn inspiration from the surrounding area for their special-edition staff bags.

The main themes include horse racing and bourbon — Kentucky staples, thanks to the home to the world-famous first leg of the Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby, and the bourbon trail.

For you geography and bourbon buffs out there, a big reason for Kentucky being at the epicenter for highly rated bourbon is because the area sits on a massive limestone deposit that naturally filters and infuses the water with minerals, making it the ideal water for making the popular spirit.

So from jockey uniforms to popular libations, can you spot all of the details, and do you have a favorite? Check them out below.
