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!

 

Golf Road Warriors Take-On Scotland

Golf Road Warriors Take-On Scotland with the Help of Sun Mountain Golf Rain Gear

A group of golf travel writers under the banner of Golf Road Warriors set off en masse recently for a full week immersion in Scottish golf. Fully aware of the country’s reputation for unpredictable weather; the writers called on Sun Mountain to provide golf rain wear.

(The folks at Sun Mountain being equally aware of the likely mercurial weather sent golf wind wear, as well.)

For golf rain wear, the writers wore Sun Mountain’s new for 2012 Torrent. Torrent offers a new four-way stretch, woven fabric that first proved itself in the rainy weather of the Presidents Cup 2011. [Read more…]

Torrent Makes Golf Digest Hot List

The January 2012 issue of Golf Digest includes the annual Rainsuit Hot List.

The opening paragraph states, “The best rainsuits protect you without restricting your swing. After testing 29 of them, we found 15 that’ll keep you dry and happy on the golf course.” View the entire Golf Digest Hot List Article

We’re proud that our Torrent LT golf rain wear made the cut! To review all of Sun Mountian’s golf outerwear visit out Golf Outerwear page.

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.

Sun Mountain Rain Gear Chosen for the U.S. Presidents Cup Team

We are proud to announce that in 2009 and now again for 2011, Sun Mountain has been chosen as the official outerwear provider for The Presidents Cup United States Team.

We spent a lot of time over the past year looking specifically at solutions to the weather protection needs of tournament golfers (and how that differs from the needs of the everyday, casual golfer). The resulting solution for The Presidents Cup is custom-designed rain gear constructed from an advanced, new four-way stretch woven fabric.

The Presidents Cup 2011 team rain wear will include long and short sleeve rain jackets and rain pants that offer protection from wind and rain while being breathable and offering enough stretch to meet the flexibility needed for a golf swing. In addition to Sun Mountain rain suits, The Presidents Cup 2011 United States team will have [Read more…]
