You enter the experience, and there’s the live DJ, bouncing beats into what’s seemingly the outer abyss.
Plastic bags are being filled to that uncomfortable stretching point in a scene perhaps best described as organized mayhem.
The Ponte Vedra Recorder ventured into the enhanced, 25,000-square-foot monster of the PGA TOUR Fan Shop at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday. Here are some of our favorite finds.
THE PLAYERS Links two-piece silicon ice cube tray - $25
We always knew ice cubes should be shaped to tee up, and Father’s Day is just around the corner.
THE PLAYERS bottle opener wall mount - $58
If ice cubes aren’t your thing, we suggest this classy man cave staple that also includes the latitude and longitude coordinates of TPC Sawgrass.
Rickie Fowler’s Play Loose collection - $71-$76
The fashion-forward Fowler plans to wear all four Puma golf polos during THE PLAYERS Championship, and all are available for purchase. You’ll be ready for spring.
Dog tee bone & tennis ball - $14 & $18
Share your experience with the furry friends you left at home in the canine section of the Fan Shop. Dogs appreciate tournament branding, right?
Rory McIlroy’s Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour golf shoes - $200
A shoe made exclusively for THE PLAYERS Championship, only 10 pairs are available each tournament day, with sales beginning at 10 a.m. If you snag one of the 40, these gold-sole beauties will certainly be the talk of your weekend grind.
Flomotion tee time volley shorts - $68
The Jacksonville-based Flomotion apparel company has a limited-edition line of products at the 2019 tournament, and these shorts are some of our favorites.
Hats, hats and more hats – prices vary
If nothing else fills your bag to the brim, walls and shelves of hats of all types are sure to do the trick. And whether you’re buying them for yourself or a friend, dozens upon dozens of styles will allow you to make the perfect selection.
Definitely take a visit to the Fan Shop to check out these items and more. Oh, and be sure to give a nod to the DJ on your way out.
