Oakley Golf has brought their “A” Game to this year’s US Open at Torrey Pines, with the event literally taking place in our backyard – Oakley has taken full advantage. The Oakley Sports Marketing Golf Crew of Al Janc, Louis Wellen and Megan Pura, along with the Sales Crew have put together a strong presence in the greater San Diego area.
The Oakley Safehouse for this year’s US Open is down on the beach in the Mission Bay area of San Diego. Catering to Oakley’s top accounts, sales reps and managers as well as visiting players, it is a perfect location to entertain everyone.
Things kicked off on Monday evening with a mellow barbeque and select beverages with top playing pros Henrick Stenson (Radar) and Rich Beem (Flak Jacket and Bow Tye Two Shoe). The food was tasty and the fun low-key social setting of Mission Bay was a great way to start the week’s festivities.
Day two saw accounts and sales taking in the first practice round at Torrey Pines, then heading over to catch a San Diego Padres baseball game. A private suite was the setting for a good time of indulging in many facets and watching a lively game.
Today was the last day of practice and Henrick Stenson played the back nine to get in his last licks of Torrey Pines before the first round; while Rich Beem and <a href =“http://oakley.com/sports/golf/athletes/192” target="_blank"> Ian Poulter took their cuts on the practice tee and green. This year looks to be another classic Grand Slam and provide a great setting for Oakley to shine in the huge audience of the golf world. Conditions are very Open-esque with harder / faster greens having developed over the week and breezy ocean skies, setting the table for a tight players field.
