The oldest Major Championship heads to the west coast of England this month as the world’s best compete for the Claret Jug at Royal Birkdale. To celebrate, TaylorMade Golf is launching a range of bags and headcovers inspired by England’s famous flag colours to celebrate the staging of the 2017 Championship.
Drawing additional insight from the philosophy of the course’s clubhouse architect, the staff bag utilises intricate art deco patterns and features the famous red and white colours of the St George’s cross that adorns England’s flag. It also boasts a Union Jack lining as a nod towards the British heritage of hosting the Open Championship, whilst the gold top trim completes the premium look. A total of 12 pockets allows for excellent storage whilst a 6-way velour top divider keeps the clubs organised. Complete with umbrella sleeve, towel clip, rain hood and zip off belly panel for embroidery. This bag will be used by all of the TaylorMade staff professionals during the Championship week. RRP: £399
The FlexTech Stand Bag features the same nod to the St George’s cross, with the red/white colour scheme and the Union Jack lining. The patented FlexTech base ensures clubs don’t stick, through a smooth collapsible base and full length dividers. A water-resistant micro-suede lined pocket keep valuables safe whilst a large internal cooler pocket will keep drinks cold. RRP: £189
Rounding off the theme, the headcover features the same red detailing as seen on the bags, with a full Union Jack lining and a Velcro closure. White piping finishes off the synthetic leather putter cover that is a must for the patriotic golfer. RRP: £30
