Tournament souvenirs when you didn't attend

Recommended Posts

Earlier today, Luke Kerr Dineen of golf.com pointed out that the souvenir items from the recently concluded PGA Championship at Harding Park are selling at clearance prices:

It provoked a question from me: how do you feel about wearing gear from an event you didn't attend? There are a lot of related questions here: wearing stuff from a course you didn't play, a college you didn't attend, etc. But let's try to keep this conversation focused: would you wear a hat or shirt from a specific tournament that you didn't have a part in?

Yes,  I happen to be wearing a t-shirt from the Memorial tournament.... I have never attended.  I have some polo shirts from events I never attended.   No issue,  it is just an article of clothing.

+1 to this. It's just a hat, a shirt, a towel.

Yup, especially if I find something with that little yellow United States logo. I am grabbing it every time.

In a word, absolutely.

If someone bought it for me who attended the event or thought it would make a nice gift I would wear it. Would I buy it myself? Probably not.

Depends how I got it... if someone who went gave it to me as a gift because they know I love the game then absolutely. Would I buy it as clearance, no

A little bit of a wrinkle to this....

Folks who have Masters 2020 tickets are able to "shop" exclusively:
This won’t happen in Augusta National’s sprawling shop, of course, but instead virtually via “an online shopping experience,” a club spokesperson confirmed to GOLF.com on Thursday, adding that more information would be provided directly to ticket-holders in the coming week.

https://golf.com/news/2020-masters-merchandise-will-not-go-to-waste/

So... they didn't 'attend' but still got an exclusive souvenir. Does that count? 🙂

If I was in attendance yes, if not, probably not unless it was a gift.

I do have an added spin on this. I collect logo balls from everywhere I play. I do have balls from the Masters, PGA Championship and such. I didn't play the course but was in attendance.

I used to buy this kind of stuff on clearance all the time.  I still have hats from Winged Foot and Mid Ocean that I wear.  No issue with it.

To be fair, most of us will never be able to attend the any of the majors, so I am glad and good on buying and wearing gear from that tournament, I am probably ordering a towel and a couple other things from the PGA.
