The Champs Are Here! Swag Golf Drops Atlanta Braves World Series Champs Headcover Suite
Chicago, IL – Every championship run has a story to it, but some stories are better than others. Swag Golf, the premium, limited-edition golf accessory, equipment, and apparel company, is now taking pre-orders for the company’s first World Series Champs Suite drop commemorating the historic Atlanta Braves’ championship run. Officially licensed by MLB, the covers are fit for the World Series Champs and are available in Driver, Blade, and Mallet options on www.SwagGolf.com.
A rare occurrence for Swag, the company is offering a pre-order for its first World Series Champs Suite offering now through April 19, 2022. Once the pre-order time period is closed, Swag will initiate a single run to fulfill the orders and the custom design will retire to Swag’s archive where it will mix and mingle with other fan-favorite designs, never to be produced again.
The World Series Champs Suite features Swag’s signature style and commemorates the path the Atlanta Braves took to the top. Heading into August, the Braves were 3 games under .500, in 3rd place in the division, and had lost their biggest star to a season-ending injury. If someone had said 3 months later they would win the World Series in 6 games over the Astros, they wouldn’t have been believed. It’s a good thing the Braves didn’t care who believed them.
As with all Swag offerings, the premium headcovers are designed and manufactured in the USA and feature industrial magnetic closures, plush protective interiors and durable UV resistant vinyl. The Atlanta Braves are the fourth MLB club to get the Swag treatment since the company entered an official licensing agreement with MLB in 2021. Previous limited-edition headcover designs include offerings for Chicago Cubs, LA Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.
The Atlanta Braves World Series Champs Suite is now available for pre-order at www.SwagGolf.com.
Fans are encouraged to follow along for the latest company updates, product releases, and ambassador signings at @SwagGolfCo on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Mistwood Golf Club Hires Angelica Carmen as Sustainability Specialist
ROMEOVILLE, IL– Mistwood Golf Club continues to grow and innovate by hiring Angelica Carmen as its new sustainability specialist. In this newly created role, Carmen will implement multiple short- and long-term programs as Mistwood makes a major commitment to environmental social responsibility in golf course maintenance, food production, and food service.
Carmen’s first project will be to create The Farm at Mistwood, a farm located on the golf course. Carmen is working with Executive Chef Dan Casey to develop a crop schedule that will yield vegetables to be featured at McWethy’s Tavern, the locally popular restaurant operated by the Mistwood team. The Farm will also serve as a venue for events. “We will be hosting chef’s dinners on The Farm itself, as well as honey tasting events using honey harvested from hives on property.”
Carmen brings a wealth of knowledge, passion, and experience to this new position, seamlessly fitting in with Mistwood’s future goals of sustainability and continuing a tradition started by the McWethy family. Before joining his father at Mistwood, Todd McWethy founded McWethy Farms, a hydroponic greenhouse operation which produced high-quality produce and supplied the local market in Michigan and the Chicago area.
Carmen grew up in Lemont, IL and graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a communications and environmental sustainability degree. Five years of experience in the golf business showed her how many opportunities there are to make changes to benefit the environment and community.
The beehive project is a wonderful collaboration with Bee All About It, headquartered in Villa Park, bringing ten beehives to Mistwood. The hives are located in what was a previously wasted area, which now has the potential to produce more than 500 pounds of honey. Bee All About It fully manages all aspects of the beehives on the property, including honey collection. This partnership is beneficial to beekeepers looking for property to host their hives, facilities looking to add green programs and local honey production to their vision, and the ecological landscape by contributing to healthy biodiversity.
This spring Carmen will begin work on a solar-powered greenhouse to start seedlings to then transition to The Farm at Mistwood. The 8,000 square foot farm will be situated in an unused area in the middle of the golf course and will be home to over 100 varieties of plants including edible flowers, herbs, and vegetables.
Carmen’s ideas and passion for her industry have been recognized with several local and national awards. She was the dual winner for the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago’s 2021 Sustainability Summit Awards in the categories of Biosolids Beneficial Reuse Award & Sustainable Landscaping Award for her major green infrastructure projects and for creating a washpad bioswale and establishing culinary farm using MWRD’s products. She was also Second Runner Up in the Innovative Conservation Award category offered through GCSAA’s [Golf Course Superintendents Association of America] Environmental Leaders in Golf awards.
