The USGA Store Offers The Best In Fan Gear On Its Online Shopping Store
The 2011 major championship golf season got underway, as all golf seasons do, and the USGA Store is ready. At historic Augusta National Golf Club, while all of the favorites were in the field this year, it was a relatively unknown South African golfer who stole the show on the back nine Sunday afternoon. Charl Schwarzel became the first man to birdie the last four holes to win a green jacket.
After that, it was on to the US Open at Congressional Country Club just outside of Washington D.C. This time the winner was Rory McIlroy. His record-setting performance was made even sweeter, given his collapse on the back nine in Augusta just a few months earlier. McIlroy was the 54 hole leader at the Masters, only to falter under the pressure of leading his first major. His final score of -16 under par was the lowest in 111 year history of the US Open and a record that may well stand for another 111 years. The next two majors promise to be just as exiting and are scheduled to be played at Royal St. George’s, the British Open, and the Atlanta Athletic Club, the PGA Championship.
While the focus of the United States Golf Association is on running this country’s national golf championships; the U.S. Open, the U.S. Senior Open, the U.S. Amateur, and the U.S. Women’s open, they also realize that without fans, the game would not exist in its current form. The beauty of golf is that all players can dress like the top professionals and also play some of the great courses in the United States. The USGA understands these points better than most and has created a fully integrated online shopping experience for the fans.
Would you like to know when and where the next national championship is being held? Would you like to attend? Would you like to own a piece of Rory McIlroy’s record setting win at the 2011 United States Open? All of these questions are answered at the USGA store along with a host of top golf merchandise. Beginners and pros alike will be impressed with the range of items that can be purchased. This is the ultimate location for golf fan gear. The USGA Store offers quite a few categories for the golf shopper including Championship, Members, Men’s, Women’s and Headgear, along with Accessories and Arts and Gifts.
The Championship category is by far the most comprehensive championship golf apparel section a person will find on the internet. Each piece of clothing found here has an embroidered logo of the most recent or upcoming USGA championship. This group also includes some of the top accessories from the world of golf. Pennants, umbrellas, belts, keyrings, and DVDs are just a sample of what is found within the championship category.
While the Member’s section offers merchandise to only USGA members, which of course anyone can join for a small yearly fee, the Men’s and Women’s sections provide a range of items for all golf fans. Both the Men’s and Women’s categories offer essentially the same items and have the same formatting. Both start with sections related to their respective national championships. They then move into the traditional lines apparel, headgear, accessories, and gifts. These items all have the USGA logo prominently displayed.
The Headwear and Accessories categories have the largest selections of any of the categories within the site. No golf fan gear site is complete without a full line of hats, and the USGA does not disappoint. With a full line of colors and styles, golfers will be well outfitted for their next round.
The online shopping experience at the USGA store is another example of the quality and exceptional customer service one has come to expect from the USGA. This is the first and last place a golfer should visit before heading to the course.
