BADEN OVERSIZED GOLF BALLS
One of the most popular souvenirs at the U.S. Open, the 7-inch rubber “oversized golf balls” serve many purposes. They can pacify bored kids and they are an ideal item for collecting autographs. The balls, made by Renton-based Baden Sports, are considerably easier to sign than a traditional golf ball. There also is more room. The ball has the U.S. Open logo on one side, and the USGA logo and event date on the other.
