Renovating the USGA's Golf House, Dr. Gary Wiren sells golf memorabilia collection, the Chiliwear golf shirt
Hear this latest episode of TravelGolf.com This Week.
The United States Golf Association (USGA) is in the middle of a major renovation of its museum and archives, Golf House. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner, who visited the site of the project, talks to Rand Jerris, director of the USGA Museum and Archives, about the overhaul.
“Right now we’re in the process of renovating the house and really doubling its size, adding a new addition onto the east side of the house,” Jerris says. “This is a major project. What we’re hoping to create here is a new museum experience that will be really exciting for golfers who are passionate about the game and its history.”
Dr. Gary Wiren, a hall of famer, one of golf’s top teachers and owner of an impressive golf collection, has decided to give up his collection. Berner talks to Wiren about his decision to sell his treasures.
“I never invested in stocks and bonds, so I invested in golfing items,” Wiren says. “It was the way I was going to pay for my kids’ college education. Well, they’ve all finished college, and we’ve still got the collection. I’ve had it for 40 some years, and now it’s time to move on. It’s going to be sold.”
In this week’s What’d You Like segment, blogger Ron Montesano lauds a bit of golf fashion.
“I like the Chiliwear golf shirt,” Montesano says. “I’ve always liked the colors. And just this week the patron saint of Chiliwear, Woody Austin, showed off [the shirt] when he finished second at the PGA Championship.”
