TaylorMade British Open Logo Contest

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. It’s British Open Week – and we have some golf balls to give away. We’ve setup a small trivia contest centered around the cryptic and enigmatic logo’s that TaylorMade creates for the Open and other championships. Within each logo are various clues that represent little known facts and figures about the course and it’s history. First up we’ll share with you a collection of the logos used over the years. Next, we’ll ask you 5 questions about the hidden meanings behind certain parts of these logos. First one to comment with all the correct answers wins a box of Pro-V1’s (or X’s if you want them).
