Rickie Fowler's looks for the 118th US Open
When it comes to the second major of the year, 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 US Open Tour Stand Bag, a nod to Rickie’s amateur days and amateur golfers, including those who grind through qualifying to earn their coveted spot in the year’s second major. Rickie made his debut at the US Open as an amateur a decade ago, teeing it up in 2008 at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.
“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.”
The US Open Tour Stand Bag incorporates all the necessary on-course features of a Tour Staff bag, including heavy-duty zippers, durable PU material and a single strap for easy carrying, but in a much lighter package. In fact, the Stand bag weights in about 60% lighter than the bag Skovron typically carries each week on Tour. The US Open version was inspired by the USA’s red, white and blue color story, and this week’s host site, 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 this iconic location.
Other key features include:
Four-way top with designated dividers and top grab handle.
Carbon Fiber Stand Legs.
Full-length Umbrella Sleeve.
Seven pockets including an oversized apparel pocket, lockable valuables pocket and dual insulated cooler pockets.
Single Carry Strap and hip pad with COOLFLOW foam.
EASYFlex base allowing maximum turf contact.
COBRA Golf will sell a limited number of these custom US Open Tour Stand Bags on cobragolf.com as well as onsite at the US Open at a special PUMA popup shop located at 1691 County Road 39, Southhampton, NY.
Now, on to apparel. Thursday’s look will showcase the colors of America featuring an all new P Cap colorway, which is launching this week. Rickie will again close out the tournament in his traditional Sunday look with another all new P Cap colorway – white with an Orange P.
