It’s only right that the most patriotic of the majors – the United States Open Championship – is littered with red-white-and-blue themed custom equipment. Add in the history at Pebble Beach Golf Links, and it’s a recipe for a collection of awesome custom equipment for the 2019 U.S. Open.
Below is a collection of the coolest equipment, gear and accessories made specifically for this week’s U.S. Open Championship.
TaylorMade’s 17-Mile Drive Staff Bags
The iconic 17 Mile Drive is home to some of the world’s best golf courses, including Pebble Beach Golf Links, and breathtaking views. TaylorMade’s red-white-and-blue golf bags for the week, which will be used by select TaylorMade staffers, features a map of the Monterey Peninsula that highlights 17-Mile Drive with red stitching. Also, the bags feature the Cypress tree that stands near the 18th green at Pebble Beach. The bags and headcovers are currently available on its website.
Odyssey Toulon Pebble Beach putter
Odyssey’s premium Toulon Design putter brand – its putters are used by PGA TOUR pros including Francesco Molinari -- made a custom 2019 U.S. Open putter, stamped appropriately. Toulon’s cryptic caption, “coming soon,” implies the putters could be made available for retail sometime in the near future.
Ping’s Pebble accessories
For its staffers, Ping designed a custom “Pebble” box that houses red-white-and-blue metalwood headcovers, putter covers, hats and visors to be used this week. This Twitter post also shows that the box fits ever so perfectly in the Pebble Beach lockers.
Seamus stars and stripes
Seamus Golf, a company that makes headcovers, tools and other accessories, designed a “U.S. Open Pack” of headcovers with stars stitched into the top sections of the blue-white-and-red headcovers. They also prominently showcase the 2019 U.S. Open Pebble Beach logo.
FootJoy Europe represents for the USA
FootJoy Europe unveiled a pair of limited edition FJ Flex shoes made for the U.S. Open. The spikeless golf shoes are currently available for pre-order on the FootJoy website.

Callaway’s Clam Bake bags
Callaway creatively gives a nod to history with Monterey Reserve Vintage Clam Bake and antique car designs on its staff bags for this week. Check out the Callaway logo and the “CLAM BK” license plate on the red car featured in the second-to-last image of the Instagram post, and the green “17” zipper tags; a few nice touches, indeed.
Push Cut’s Pebble covers
While you probably won’t see one of these covers during competition this week, that doesn’t make these covers any less cool. Push Cut Custom cooked up a leather Pebble Beach headcover with red-white-and-blue fleece lining on the interior. As per the Instagram post, the headcovers are currently available at auction.
