Sun Mountain outerwear chosen to outfit U.S. Presidents Cup Team

Sun Mountain is proud to announce that for the third consecutive time the company has been chosen as the "Preferred Outerwear Provider for The Presidents Cup 2013 United States Team." The 2013 U.S. Team outerwear will include gear to protect from rain, wind and cold.

Specifically, the players' outerwear for The Presidents Cup 2013 will include: a full-zip rain jacket, long sleeve rain pullover, short sleeve rain pullover, rain pants, long sleeve wind pullover, short sleeve wind pullover, long sleeve thermal pullover, and a waterproof bucket hat. Caddies' outerwear will include: full zip long sleeve rain jacket, short sleeve rain pullover, rain pants, long sleeve wind pullover, long sleeve thermal pullover, and bucket hat. Players' significant others will have options to include: full-zip rain jacket, rain pants, thermal vest and bucket hat.

Sun Mountain Founder Rick Reimers commented, "We spent a lot of time before the 2011 Presidents Cup evaluating solutions to the weather protection needs of tournament golfers. Our solution was what became our StormTight collection of rain gear. The 2011 event saw significant rain and everyone was happy with the protection StormTight offered while still meeting the players' needs for a flexible, stretchable garment. We are honored to be chosen to outfit The Presidents Cup U.S. Team and look forward to once again putting our rain, wind and thermal gear to the test."

This year Sun Mountain will also be featured in the on-site Presidents Cup merchandise tent selling US team-logoed outerwear.

The Presidents Cup, a team match-play competition featuring 24 of the world's top golfers -- 12 from the United States and 12 from around the world, excluding Europe -- is held every two years, and has alternated between United States and international venues since 1996. The Presidents Cup was developed to give the world's best non-European players an opportunity to compete in international team match-play competition. The Presidents Cup 2013 will be held October 1 - 6 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, pitting the U.S. Team, led by Fred Couples, against the International Team, captained by Nick Price.

For 30 years Sun Mountain has been a pioneer in the golf industry, revolutionizing golf bags, golf outerwear and golf carts. Sun Mountain's many innovations, including the first lightweight golf bag and modern stand bag, have made it the top golf bag company in North America. Within golf outerwear, Sun Mountain redefined golf-specific performance first with the windshirt, then fleece, and again with its four-way stretch, waterproof, and breathable rainwear. The Sun Mountain Speed Cart® golf push cart transformed walking carts and created an entirely new category of golf products. Sun Mountain's "Ahead of Time Design" motto drives the company to continually design and refine golf equipment.
