U.S. Presidents Cup Team wears Sun Mountain Outerwear to Victory

Congratulations to the 2011 U.S. Presidents Cup Team on its 19 – 15 victory over a very talented International Team. We are proud that we were part of the effort as the Official Outerwear provider to the U.S. Team.

The weather in Melbourne, Australia for the 2011 Presidents Cup lived up to its reputation, ranging from windy and 70s, to sunny and upper 90s, to rainy and 50s all in the course of four days.

With full knowledge of the unpredictable nature of the weather, we equipped the U.S. squad with a lot of options to include Sun Mountain rain gear and wind wear in both short and long sleeves. In addition to the players, we also provided rain and wind gear for caddies, tournament officials and players’ significant others.

Sun Mountain rain gear was out in force on Saturday when temperatures dipped into the 50s and rain showers were the order of the day. Sunday started out brisk and saw most of the caddies and some of the players wearing Sun Mountain wind wear.

So, congrats Team USA and thanks Captain Fred Couples for once again selecting Sun Mountain to design your team’s golf outerwear.

1000 Rounds of Golf in 366 Days

Sun Mountain Provides Golf Push Cart for World Record Attempt

Sun Mountain is proud to have provided a Speed Cart golf push cart for music industry veteran Jimmy Daniel who is currently embarking on an ambitious journey to break the Guinness World Record for “Most Rounds Of Golf In One Year.” This is a spirited challenge to play and walk most of the 1,000 rounds in 366 straight days (with leap year), but the mission of breaking the world record is secondary to what he is hopeful to accomplish.

Daniel is using this courageous challenge to launch Heart of the Green, a unique, grassroots organization using the game of golf as a platform to raise awareness to reduce deaths from cardiac arrest and heart attacks.

It is the goal of Heart of the Green to take their campaign to 10,000 golf communities, courses and clubs where millions of men and women of all ages, all nationalities, in every demographic, visit every day of the year.

Visit www.heartofthegreen.org for more information and updates throughout the campaign.

Improve Your Health – Walk the Course

Golf Fitness: Improve your health and your golf game; walk the course with Sun Mountain golf push carts

Numerous studies over the years have documented the health benefits of walking the golf course. Now more than ever, people are realizing that one need not sign up for an ‘exercise’ class to get in shape. The golf game itself can indeed be the exercise class.

A recent study on golf fitness found that walking a round of golf offers the same benefits as a step-aerobics class. Another study documents that 2 rounds of golf per week puts one over the 2,500 calories burned per week goal/threshold.

Sun Mountain’s golf products are designed to make walking the course easier today than ever before, allowing you to reap the full health benefits of playing golf. [Read more...]

Ferrero’s is not the only fan of the Superlight 3.5, Golf Digest awarded the lightweight golf bag a Hot List Gold earlier this year with judges saying that the Superlight 3.5 is ‘the latest chapter from a company with a history of smart carry bags focused on details’. The Hot List panel further recognized the new-for-2011 cart friendly features including a cart strap tunnel that ‘prevents the bag from twisting, while allowing access to all seven pockets’.

The LPGA Futures Tour is the “Road to the LPGA” for young women golfers aspiring to professional greatness. As the official developmental tour of the LPGA, the Futures Tour affords them a preview of competition at the highest level and awards LPGA Tour cards to its top ten money earners each year.

ClubGlider Travel Bag in Inc.

We are proud that our ClubGlider travel bag is included in Inc. magazine’s “Six Business Golf Travel Essentials“.

The story on top golf travel gear says it well:

Protecting your investment when you travel should not be overlooked, as airline employees will definitely toss around your clubs. Some prefer a hard case but lugging them through airports is far from fun. This travel cover from Sun Mountain Sports eliminates an average of 22 pounds of pressure from your arms and shoulders with an innovative pop-out wheel structure and is a favorite of many road warriors.

ClubGlider is the next evolution in golf travel bags offering extendable legs and wheels to support 100% of the weight while eliminating the repeated bending and lifting required with traditional travel bags. With the ClubGlider, walking around is effortless thanks to the maneuverability of the bag’s pivoting wheels. ClubGlider is available in three different models – Pro, Meridian, and Cascade – offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals with full-suggested retail prices of $349, $319 and $269, respectively.
