Sun Mountain Caption Contest Winner Announced

Thanks to all who submitted, and to those who voted, in the caption contest. We stepped into this hesitantly, thinking caption contests are sort of like dining room conversation – don’t bring up politics or religion. But, the photo was just begging for a caption contest so we proceeded onward.

Some of the entries that we can share include:

Don’t worry! If you hit a bad one, take a Billigan! — Rich Killoran

Barack, I swear I am telling the truth, my ball was this far inside of those white OB stakes! — Robert Branlund

Bill: Call me crazy, but i really don’t think you get bonus points for hitting that squirrel…. — Holden Harrison

Bill: “Alright Barry, you gotta keep this left of the recession bunker, go over the fiscal cliff, and down the forgiving subsidy straightaway. Oh, and you only have 4 more shots to do it.” — Danny Schnacky

And the caption garnering the most “Likes” and winning a Sun Mountain ThermalFlex Jacket is:

 

Bill: You know Obama you should really be back at the white house trying to figure out this economic crisis…Obama: You know i don’t have a clue what i’m doing Bill — Cam Rice.

Cam, message us so we can get your size, color choice and shipping information.

Thanks for participating. Next caption contest we will heed the dinner time rules!

 

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…]
