Texas Longhorn Golf

For my family and friends in Texas, here’s a selection of Texas Longhorn golf gear., including ball markers, logo balls, umbrellas, towels and more.


Personal connections aside, Texas has been on my mind lately. I’m in the middle of reading the multi-volume Oxford history of the United States, and in the current volume, What Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America, 1815-1848, I’m in the midst of the section on Texas independence and annexation. I’ve also been wondering about the fallout from the rumored detonation of the Big 12 conference. The rumor here in Ann Arbor is that Texas will be invited to join the Big 10, and several other teams will head to the PAC 10.
