Men's super soft t-shirt inspired by the Greater Hartford Open.
Originally started in 1952 as the Insurance City Open, this annual PGA tournament was renamed in 1967 to it's forever-name: "The GHO". The 1984 tournament was moved to TPC in Cromwell; it was previously held at the Wethersfield Country Club.
Some of golf's all time greats have claimed victory at the GHO, including Phil Mickelson ('01, '02), Greg Norman ('95), Nick Price ('93), Peter Jacobsen ('84, '03), Billy Casper ('63, '65, '69, '73) and Lee Trevino ('72). Way back when it was still called the Insurance City Open, Sam Snead ('55) and Arnold Palmer ('56, '60) were champions.
Even for non-fans of golf, the GHO was still a great time, especially if you were lucky enough to snag some corporate row tix. The local community came together to host, so even if you weren't spectating you may have still had an important role, perhaps working a food (or beer) booth or parking cars?
50/50 cotton-poly blend. Made and printed in the USA. Velvety Local Vyntage logo on right sleeve. This t-shirt is now tag-less.
We're very proud to help share Connecticut memories.
Customers say our t-shirts run slightly small.
For most men we recommend ordering the next size up, especially if you're ever between sizes or prefer a looser fit.
For most women we recommend ordering the same size as your regular women's size, but if you prefer a tighter fit you may want to order one size down.
Our t-shirts are premium 50/50 blends (cotton/polyester), giving them that buttery-soft feel you’re looking for!
