And like we say every year, if your dad isn’t a golfer, let us make a recommendation: Get him a lesson from a PGA professional.

    Funny you say that Yeti is the best, when basically every review I’ve read from people who have actually compared other brands against them (ie. Pelican, RTIC) says that the other brands are better… and are often cheaper. Although you do get a bumper sticker when you buy a Yeti, so if that’s important to you…

TaylorMade unveils 2020 PGA Championship staff bag and headcovers (and we’re giving a set away!)

Published

on

TaylorMade has launched its commemorative staff bag, as well as headcovers, to celebrate the opening major of 2020 at TPC Harding Park.

For the first time in its 102-year history, the PGA Championship will be hosted in the Bay Area. To honor the occasion, the staff bag from TaylorMade is accented by the San Francisco Giants’ traditional cream, orange, and black colorway.

GIVEAWAY: TaylorMade PGA Championship Staff Bag and Headcovers! Super Limited!

The commemorative bag also features the TaylorMade logo in the same font used by the MLB franchise and is decorated by eight stars on the bag’s upper with each representing a Giants’ World Series victory.

The three stars in orange signals wins captured in San Francisco, while the five stars in white represent wins in New York before the club’s 1957 relocation.

The interior lining of the bag shows the San Francisco Chronicle headlines that followed each of the team’s most recent championships.

Additional nods to the city include stitching of Lombard Street on the handle, an outline of the city’s skyline on the lower paneling, and an image of the iconic Golden Gate and Bay Bridges across the base.

A WGH insignia acknowledges the 29th President of the United States, and the venue’s namesake, Warren G. Harding.

Reply with your favorite major moment in the forum thread below for a chance to win a staff bag and headcovers. These are not coming to retail!
