2155195Golf Digest Awards Sun Mountain As Best Travel Bag

Missoula, Montana – The Sun Mountain ClubGlider golf travel bag has been named the best golf travel cover by Golf Digest magazine. The magazine’s editors chose the ClubGlider based upon its size, durability and maneuverability. ClubGlider is the only golf travel bag that has extendable legs and wheels to support 100% of the weight. The full story is available on-line at For the Sun Mountain retailer nearest you call 800-227-9224 or visit

The article said, “When we think of the ideal travel case, we think about size: big enough to fit our clubs, shoes, raingear, and maybe an extra sweater or two-but not so big that the clubs are moving around. Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider Meridian nails that balance.”

“We also think about durability. Your travel bag takes a beating when you fly. You need something that’s going to survive that experience and keep your clubs safe.”

“The final thing we’re looking for in our travel cases is maneuverability. That’s where the legs of the Sun Mountain ClubGlider Meridian come in. Pull out the legs to make your bag feel like nothing when you’re wheeling it around, and then retract the legs when it’s time for your bag to board.”

Sun Mountain Founder Rick Reimers said, “The leg on the ClubGlider is singularly unique and really sets it apart from the competition. We’re honored the Editors of Golf Digest agree!”

Chase54 Reports Expanded DryFuze&Reg; Technology Offerings And Cool Wins

CHASE54, the evolving apparel brand named for the pursuit of the perfect score in golf, announces the continued expansion of its signature DryFuze® technology, now featured in more than 90% of its styles, including polos, shorts, pants and some of its mid-layering pieces for men and women. The new apparel is available online in the Spring 2016 Collection. With the weather heating up, DryFuze keeps golfers looking and feeling cool, with its signature moisture wicking qualities. Premier fabric transports moisture from the skin to the clothing’s exterior.

“Because we have scientists in our labs constantly pushing innovation and quality, we are always improving our DryFuze® technology and rolling it into more styles,” says Lulu Faddis, Chief Designer and Creative Director for CHASE54. “We believe DryFuze will become a household fabric name in the future,” she adds. “DryFuze is not just for polo shirts anymore…golfers demand ultra-performance when wearing a layering piece or even in their bottoms,” she adds.

In addition to the rise of the technology, DryFuze® is making its way into more serious golfers’ game, turning out more wins wearing CHASE54. Making just his second career start on PGA Tour Latinoamerica, Derek Rende won the Lexus Panama Classic wearing CHASE54. “It was an amazing week when I got the win in Panama. It’s a great start to the year and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the CHASE54 team,” says Rende.

Also sporting CHASE54, Long Drive Champion Trent Scruggs won the East Coast Classic in South Carolina making it his third straight win on the Independent Tour. “It was a great way to start the year off with a win and a new career long of 450 yards,” says Scruggs. “I want to thank CHASE54 for giving me the best clothes and I can’t wait for the next event,” he adds.

“In the warmer climates, we want golfers to be able to focus on their game and DryFuze empowers them to do that,” Faddis says. “Seeing players wearing C54 for a win is a win for us too, when it comes to performance technology,” she adds.
