With the first round of the Open just about to start, we will all soon be obsessing about everything golf. Retailers know this, and are offering up limited time deals this weekend to help feed your need to live vicariously through your tour role models. Golf, perhaps unlike any other sport, is built on branding and merchandise. You may not be able to swing like Jason Day or Rory McIlroy, but you can play their clubs and sport their gear.
The drawback for not sharing tour talent however, is that you have to pay for all of that tour technology and fashion. Sure you can easily go out to your local Dick’s or Golfsmith, but as they say, retail is for suckers. With a little searching, you can find considerable savings through online retailers.
This week I am focusing on one of my go-to sites for my apparel and equipment fixe, www.globalgolf.com They are running a special for the Open with 16% of your purchase with promo code: theopen
To give you an idea of the savings, I have put together a few select items showing how you can get Dustin Johnson’s US Open winning look (you remember, just last month):
Outfit total at retail: $155
Outfit total on GlobalGolf: $120
Outfit total after “theopen” promo code: $101
As an added bonus, you can also apply promo code “freeship99” to any order over $99 to get free economy shipping. I may just have to get this look for myself.
