There’s plenty of talk about who will be wearing what at the U.S. Open at New York’s Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.
Rickie Fowler will be dressed to the nines each day in apparel from PUMA Golf’s Spring Summer ’18 Collection. Additionally, throughout the week, Rickie’s caddie, Joe Skovron, will carry a custom Cobra Golf & Vessel U.S. Open Tour Stand Bag, a nod to Rickie’s amateur days and amateur golfers.
“You only see a staff bag at a professional tournament, or maybe in a mancave, but it’s not what most golfers use. We thought it would be a cool idea to carry a bag that most juniors, college players and weekend golfers use instead of a staff bag that you only see on Tour,” said Skovron. “And, selfishly, it’s nice to carry something a little smaller and lighter for the trek that is Shinnecock Hills.”
Cobra Golf will sell a limited number of the custom U.S. Open Tour Stand Bags at cobragolf.com. The brand will also host a giveaway on its social media channels (check @cobragolf).
As for Fowler’s clothing look for the week – Thursday will showcase the colours of America featuring an all new P Cap colourway, which is launching this week. Fowler will again close out the tournament in his traditional Sunday look with another all new P Cap colourway – white with an Orange P.
On Thursday, Fowler will wear the Highlight Stripe Polo, Pounce Pants (peacoat), Ultralite Stretch Belt (peacoat) and a red, white and blue P Snapback Cap. On Friday, it’s the Evoknit Block Polo (plasma), 6 Pocket Pant (peacoat), Ultralite Stretch Belt (peacoat) and heather/white P Snapback Cap. On Saturday, it’s a Roadmap Polo (bright white/paradise pink, Pounce Pant (quarry), Ultralite Stretch Belt (black) and white P Snapback Cap. On Sunday, it’s the Pounce Aston Polo (vibrant), 6 Pocket Pant (bright white), Ultralite Stretch Belt (quarry) and white/orange P Snapback Cap. www.cobragolf.com/pumagolf/
Fresh off a win at the 2018 Memorial Tournament, Bryson DeChambeau will also be wearing PUMA Golf’s new line. Additionally, throughout the week, his caddie will carry a custom U.S. Open Staff Bag inspired by the USA’s red, white and blue colour story and Shinnecock Hills and its legendary club logo. The bag features four arrows, a nod to the fourth time the US Open will be contested at the iconic location, with One One Eight scripted across the back pocket representing the 118th US Open. COBRA Golf will host a giveaway on its social media channels (check @cobragolf).
DeChambeau will kick off the tournament in a crisp white, blue look, with his signature Driver Cap, and close out the second major of the year in his traditional Sunday Red, White & Blue colour story.
