It's Ryder Cup week, and it's looking to be one of the most anticipated in recent history. An extra year of waiting will do that.
To capitalize on the excitement, a number of companies have been releasing Ryder Cup-themed products. Here's a look at some unique items you can get your hands on to celebrate the 43rd edition of the intercontinental competition.
Adidas Golf's limited-edition Stan Smith golf shoe
The iconic Stan Smith shoe has received the Ryder Cup treatment. To celebrate the event being held in Wisconsin – i.e. “America’s Dairyland” – the shoe’s design pays tribute to the cows that give the state its distinctive title.
The shoe is on sale now at adidas.com and costs $120.
TaylorMade Ryder Cup-inspired SIM2 Max drivers
Packed with the technology of the regular SIM2 Max drivers, TaylorMade has given fans the chance to show their team's colors in a unique way.
For the U.S., that of course means the iconic Stars and Stripes detail on the clubhead, while the European edition contains a yellow-and-blue color scheme. Both SIM2 Max limited-edition Ryder Cup drivers are available to pre-order now at TaylorMade.com for a price of $529.99 each.
Blue Delta Ryder Cup-edition denim jeans
All players, captains and PGA staff have been specially fit by Blue Delta Jeans and will wear these jeans to the private team dinner during Ryder Cup week. The jeans feature a Ryder Cup logo on the watch pocket, with each pair handmade in Mississippi.
