When it comes to major championships, equipment manufacturers and their designers pull out all the stops.

With the final men’s major of the year taking place at St. Andrews for the 150th playing of the Open Championship, there is a plethora of golf bags and accessories that will be spicing up the links. Let’s take a look:


Adorn with plenty of nods to both St. Andrews and the 150th Open Championship, the TaylorMade staff bag and accompanying accessories combine the best of classic looks with modern styling.


The Callaway bags mark a unique collaboration between the California-based company and the town of St. Andrews, Scotland, and its people. The artwork features many sites from around Scotland and St. Andrews including bagpipers, the Loch Ness monster, and the 18th hole at The Old Course along with the Swilcan Bridge.


The Srixon gear deviates from its traditional colors in favor of blues and greens in honor of the Scottish flag and the St. Andrews Tartan. 


While introducing their limited edition ion blue plated Mizuno Pro 221 irons, Mizuno quietly snuck in the first shots of their limited edition bag for the Open Championship. They went with a take on their traditional staff bag with an all-white base combined with blue accents.
