- June 3-19: Explore The Pro Shop by SOLO GOLF
- Whether attending the Championship or seeking a new outfit for their next round of golf, shoppers will find a curated selection of men’s golf apparel at The Pro Shop by SOLO Golf. Owned by husband and wife duo, Dan and Tessa Sullivan, SOLO Golf was founded to break the mold of the golf uniform, taking inspiration from their Northeast routes and introducing outerwear, layers, shirting, and bottoms that transcend the course. The Pro Shop by SOLO Golf will feature the brand’s new summer line of tops, bottoms, layers, and outerwear, including exclusive pieces inspired by 1913 U.S. Open champion and Brookline native, Francis Ouimet.
- The Pro Shop is located next to Warby Parker and Peloton.
- June 14: Book Signing & Q&A with ESPN’S Bob Harig at Hummingbird Books
- For two decades now, two golfers have captivated, bemused, inspired, frustrated, fascinated, and entertained us and, in doing so, have demanded our attention – Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Join longtime golf reporter Bob Harig of ESPN and the Tampa Bay Times at Hummingbird Books for a book signing and Q&A about his first book, Tiger & Phil, which provides an in-depth chronicle of the decades-long rivalry that drove the success of golf’s two biggest stars.

About the U.S. Open:
The USGA is a non-profit organization that celebrates, serves and advances the game of golf. Founded in 1894, we conduct many of golf’s premier professional and amateur championships, including the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open. With The R&A, we govern the sport via a global set of playing, equipment, handicapping and amateur status rules. The USGA campus in Liberty Corner, New Jersey, is home to the Association’s Research and Test Center, where science and innovation are fueling a healthy and sustainable game for the future. The campus is also home to the USGA Golf Museum, where we honor the game by curating the world’s most comprehensive archive of golf artifacts.
About The Country Club in Brookline:
Founded in 1882 and located in Brookline, Mass., The Country Club is one of the oldest clubs in the United States and one of five charter members that founded the United States Golf Association in 1894. It has played host to 16 USGA national championships, more than all but one other club. And it has served as the site for a number of the game’s most important events. These include the 1913 U.S. Open, won by amateur and Brookline-native Francis Ouimet, which began the golf boom in America; the 1999 Ryder Cup that featured the U.S. team’s dramatic Sunday comeback; 1902 U.S. Women’s Amateur, the club’s first national championship, won by Genevieve Hecker; and three U.S. Opens (1913, 1963, 1988) that all finished in playoffs.
