British Open: Best merchandise available at Royal Portrush

By

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — While still behind their counterparts at the other majors, the R&A’s offerings finally showed some signs of integrating locally made goods and other fun knick-knacks.

But overall, if you were concerned to be missing out on some splendid clothing and accessories, not to worry, the British Open remains mostly an antiseptic merchandising affair.

That said, the best from the 148th Open:

While they are light on nostalgic items here, this youth t-shirt £20 ($25) will be a fun keepsake depicting an imagined scene at the fifth green during play will be a cute one to have even after the little guy outgrows it.
