Golf Equipment

Just a taste of what to expect over the next six weeks as Ryder Cup fever kicks in. Equipment editor James Savage takes a look at the early movers

The majors are over for another year but thankfully we’ve got the Ryder Cup to look forward to next month.

It’s full-on Ryder Cup fever at NCG from now until September 28. Only the six weeks to wait…

So expect to be inundated with Ryder Cup-themed golf equipment from now until then kicking off with these Callaway Ryder Cup Truvis golf balls.

Callaway Ryder Cup Truvis

These are the brand new Chrome Soft balls with Team USA and Team Europe options available.

But just to be extra careful with the rules – very few brands are allowed to use ‘Ryder Cup’ to sell products – these will be known as the ‘European’ and ‘Stars & Stripes’ editions.

Some brands like Galvin Green and Peter Millar (see below) for example are official licensees so have the rights to use the words Ryder Cup and images of the trophy.

Other official licensees include Adidas, Abacus, Bushnell, Lacoste, Nike and Titleist.

The balls will be available from selected retailers from August 20 with an SRP of £37.99.

More information can be found on the Callaway website.

Official Ryder Cup fan wear launched

The official fanwear can be bought from the Ryder Cup website.

This isn’t the stuff that the players will be wearing, much of that has been made by Galvin Green and can be purchased from their website.

The official fan wear included a range of polos, tops and padded jackets all featuring the Team Europe badge.

The prices are actually very reasonable with this jacket coming in at £60.

Let’s just say that the Galvin Green gear is a little bit more expensive.
