By USGA

FAR HILLS, N.J. – The United States Golf Association (USGA) has announced a special holiday offer for early buyers of tickets to the historic 2016 U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont Country Club.

In celebration of the holiday season, the USGA will ship a free personalized brass bag tag to those who purchase tickets for the 116th U.S. Open between Oct. 26 and Nov. 30. The bag tag, which features the distinctive logo of the 2016 U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont, will be engraved to the buyer’s specifications. Free shipping will apply to all tickets purchased before Nov. 30, with actual tickets mailing in early May 2016.
