So, all of that brings me to the magnificent official poster for the event created by my friend, artist Lee Wybranski. Lee is based in the delightful town of Flagstaff, Arizona and this is his eighth poster celebrating the USGA' s premier event. Lee has always said that "the poster is an advertisement" and uses iconic imagery, as well as using strong copy lines to tell the story of the course and area. This year's story features the 16th hole and captures the Sounder train running along Puget Sound with the iconic "Lone Fir" tree in the distance. Look even closer and you will see a Seahawk in the clouds above the golf course and the snow capped Olympic Mountains in the distance. The poster is wonderfully observed and beautifully executed.
For the last couple of months we have been working with Lee to re-design his website and you can now see many originals, posters, prints, as well as his extraordinary brand and logo work on his new site here. The talent of Lee and his team knows no bounds and the depth of his work in the golf business is amazing. You may also be surprised to see his non-golf and special commission work that includes many special events and bold contemporary work.
You can visit Lee's new site here and buy the 2015 U.S. Open poster here.

The golf season is off and running, so you need to get your best golf pants on and keep them up in style. There's no better way than with stylish belts from the US company, Beltology. Several PGA and European Tour players are now wearing Beltology and with more than 40 styles and colors to choose from they are finding the perfect accessory for their daily outfits.
At Beltology, they believe belts should stretch and their belts are different from traditional leather belts. There are no holes as the prong passes smoothly through the webbing, allowing for a comfortable and adjustable fit. Beltology uses premium stretch webbing, top quality buckles and 100% genuine leather trims. I have been wearing the belts non stop now for about six months and can attest to the quality, finish and comfort.
Go online here and see all of the styles and colors, priced between $55 and $65. Go on, get your belt on!
