Creating a logo for an event like the US Open is a formidable task.
After all, it not only commemorates a hallowed golf venue and a major athletic event, it's also what most quantifiably remains of the year's championship. Long after galleries have dispersed and the players moved on to other competitions.
The US Open logo adorns almost everything in the merchandise pavilion and will be taken home by thousands on caps and visors, golf towels and shirts...all manner of shirts.
World Golf has a bit of the back story on the logo, and on Lee Wybranski, considered one of today's top golf artists.
