DETROIT, Mich. – This week at the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, the PGA TOUR shows military appreciation by providing complimentary admission to all U.S. Armed Forces members, including active duty, retired military members and veterans.
Golf equipment companies, doing their part, created custom products and accessories for PGA TOUR players to use and wear during the event this week to show their appreciation. Check out photos of the custom products below.
Parsons Xtreme Golf – the company’s founder Bob Parsons is a retired Marine – names all of its equipment after military terms and refers to their staffers as the “PXG Troops.” So while most of PXG’s products already show military appreciation, the company has custom camouflage hats this week to further the cause.
Callaway’s take on the camouflage design is a bit subtler than PXG’s, going with black and gray hues instead of more customary green colors. Look for both Callaway staffers and their caddies to wear these hats this week.
TaylorMade military Spiders
TaylorMade staffers who use mallet-style putters may opt to use these custom camouflage Spider headcovers at the Rocket Mortgage.
Ping’s army of products
Made special for this week, Ping created camouflage stand bags, hats and headcovers. Look closely at the bags to see some creative details including Velcro nametag patches and labels that look like military uniforms.
