PGA Championship merchandise store opens this weekend

The official PGA Championship merchandise store is open and organizers say there’s something for everyone.

The 50,000 square foot merchandise tent is now open to the public and organizers expect plenty of people to be there this weekend. Rows and rows of hats, shirts and mugs of all sizes and colors proudly display the PGA 2022 logo at Southern Hills Country Club.

The massive merchandise tent takes over a year to organize, and with inventory issues, this year has been particularly difficult.

“We’ve worked so hard to get here that it’s really crowded this week,” Michael Quirk said.

Michael Quirk is senior vice president of merchandise for the PGA and says he’s ready to take on huge crowds this weekend. This tent is the only way people can see inside Southern Hills without a ticket.

“You factor in, next week, the event being a major one, our crowds are going to be big,” Quirk said. “There’s a reason this tent is 50,000 square feet.”

Quirk said the excitement in Tulsa has been building since the Senior PGA Championship last year.

“Tulsa is a great area. Everyone is so nice and awesome, and the excitement – ​​you can just feel it.

The merchandise shop is open Friday until 6 p.m., then 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You can park at the Mabee center and take a shuttle to the tent.

“It will be an exciting time,” Quirk said. “These next 10 days, we are ready.”

You can also take a free photo with the trophy on Friday and Saturday.
