Hickory, steel or titanium?
Silver Oaks created an interactive experience complementing the 2016 U.S. Open Golf Championship at the Oakmont Country Club in Pittsburgh. Visitors can step up into a hitting bay, swing a club from the 1920s, 1960s or modern day, and watch their tee shot off the first hole at Oakmont. Their distance data is then compared against Oakmont champions of the golf club’s respective era.
This intricate, multi-faceted exhibit also highlights Pittsburgh’s long-standing connection to the event. We worked closely with the fabricator, USGA Museum, World Golf Tour and SkyTrak to bring this experience to life for golf fans before the 2016 U.S. Open. The exhibit is displayed at Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburg preceding the 2016 U.S. Open and will be updated and displayed accordingly to generate excitement for future U.S. Opens.
