June 15, 2015
Polo wins a tight battle for best of many great T-shirts with these stylish, understated and cool designs for $45. One in navy includes the 18 hole names at Chambers Bay, while the other goes for a bit of Puget Sound artistry loosely depicting the 16th hole.
Seahawks colors for men and women. You name the brand, everyone has played off the Seahawks day-glo green in shirt designs, as evidenced by these shirts from Cutter & Buck along with an entire women's outfit by Polo.
The most elaborate Christmas ornament in the history of major championship golf! The other side is emblazoned with the USGA logo for the Executive Committee members of the world, the rest will display this $45 nugget to remember what should be a great week in Pierce County.
Everything Seamus Golf for the first time at a major. Headcovers, blankets, ball markers and more from Megan and Akbar Chisti, the husband-wife team behind the Beaverton, Oregon maker of crafted goods made with golfing reverence.
Akbar or one of his craftsman will be in the merchandise center stamping bag tags and ball markers with whatever messages buyers want, free of extra charge. Several distinctive tartans are offered in Chambers-logoed headcovers and putter covers.
More Seahawks, hat edition! A nice mix of styles for men, women, children and January playoff game tailgaters.
Lee Wybranski's atmospheric posters have become staples of major championships and his design for 2015 captures the beauty of this singular spot. Available in two sizes for $32 and $22, along with smaller versions of past posters in case you were regretting not having picked up Wybranski art at the U.S. Opens dating back to 2008. Best of all, Wybranski is on site every day to sign his work.
For the little ones back home, hoody-wearing critters for $14 are conveniently located by the cash registers and sport fun names like Chopper Beaver and Frisky Fox.
And you may need a few of those stuffed animals to justify the $85 spent on the growler, which lets you have "beer on tap to go." Part Claret Jug and part keg, these are going to go quickly with the rugged (beer-loving) types of the great Northwest.
