Sun Mountain's ClubGlider golf travel bag praised by Tour players

MISSOULA, Mont. -- For the past several years Sun Mountain has been touting the benefits of its ClubGlider golf travel bag that uniquely offers extendable legs that support 100% of the weight. Now the company is sharing some news related to the tour players who use the company's products.

From a pure numbers perspective, Sun Mountain has impressive statistics from 2013 including 17 of the top 50 men's tour players in the world carrying its products. The numbers are equally impressive with the ladies. Of the top 30 in the 2013 LPGA rankings, nine use the Sun Mountain ClubGlider golf travel bag. On the Champions Tour, of the top 30 players in 2013, 14 have a ClubGlider.

Some of these players have even taken to Twitter to praise the ClubGlider:

2011 U.S. Senior Open Champion Olin Browne posted, "Be packing up my Sun Mountain ClubGlider soon. Back at it @ChampionsTour for 2014."

LPGA player Jackie Stoelting posted, "Love using my @SunMountainGolf travel bag for my clubs. I barely have to push it and it is fashionable #clubglider."

Ashley Tait of the LPGA Symetra Tour posted, "Best travel bag I've ever had! Makes my life a million times easier!"

The company has also received letters and e-mails from players talking about the ClubGlider including DJ Trahan who said, "It is without a doubt my most important piece of luggage and I am handicapped without it."

Sun Mountain says that it's not just the players. Many who follow the tour apparently appreciate gliding to and through the airport with the ClubGlider golf travel bag, too. Reportedly, one of the commentators on NBC Sports ordered a ClubGlider after seeing a fellow commentator, and former touring pro, easing her way through airports. And, we understand that a writer for a national golf magazine who follows the tour was an early adapter and some suggest he has logged more trips on his ClubGlider than anyone else.

Sun Mountain is offering four different models of the ClubGlider for 2014, so there's a ClubGlider for everyone from the weekend warrior to the touring pro. You can find the nearest retailer and see the full collection at
