Our 2019 British Open staff bag brings to life the history that dwells on the links and in the cliffs of Northern Ireland.
The 2019 British Open is intertwined in deep golf history and this year at Royal Portrush, golfers and fans alike will again experience the suspense of this spectacular links course as players navigate around the rugged terrain soaking in the breath-taking landscape beside the Atlantic Ocean.
To commemorate the historical lands, TaylorMade has crafted a bag with the spirit of the surrounding areas. This Links is named after the nearby ruins of the medieval Dunluce Castle which is prominently symbolised on the bag’s ball pouch with navy, maroon and grey colours paying tribute to the host course and the limestone-coloured surface of the Whiterocks Beach.
FUN FACT: Hole 5 ‘White Rocks’ Par 4 (382-yards): The views may be inviting, but driving the green in the prevailing wind is likely to prove even more alluring to the game’s big hitters
Our designers looked to the iconic Giant’s Causeway for inspiration in which protruding hexagonal columns on the panel and “gateway to the causeway” debossed on the bag’s base represent the large pillars removed by an Irish giant after crossing the North Channel to fight his Scottish adversary.
Whiskey enthusiasts will note the multiple references to the continent’s oldest distilled beverage on the interior lining, too!
Team TaylorMade are up for any challenges that Royal Portrush will throw at them, we’re excited – are you?!
