Since this U.S. Open tournament typically falls on the weekend of the U.S. Open, TaylorMade thought it would be a perfect opportunity to honor the players’ families in a unique way.

The staff players will be by carrying new silver SLDR-S staff bags emblazoned with the name of a loved one.

Nearly 30 players will put bags in play that instead of their own name, will feature their father, grandfather or children’s names – some with multiple. Among them:

  • Stuart Cink will pay homage to his late father-in-law with the initials PL, along with featuring his father Rob’s name.
  • Scott Langley will feature his soon-to-be-daughter’s name, Kennedy Caroline; Langley’s wife is pregnant.
  • Sergio Garcia will have his father Victor’s name on a red staff bag, the color signifying Spain as defending World Cup champions.
  • Graeme Storm highlights his grandfather William Trueman, the man that introduced him to the game of golf.
  • Justin Rose, defending champion, will celebrate his children, Liam and Lotte, on his bag.
  • The TaylorMade silver staff bags commemorate the launch of TaylorMade’s new SLDR-S driver. Keep an eye out this weekend for this touching tribute.
