Puma Golf’s Newest Apparel Line Captures the Journey of Golfers Who Bring Their Style Game With Them No Matter Where Life Takes Them

CARLSBAD, CA – PUMA Golf unveiled its new “Game That Travels” apparel, footwear and accessories collection – comprised of eight series that pay homage to the most desirable locales Rickie Fowler, Bryson DeChambeau and Gary Woodland travel to each PGA Tour season. Each ensemble is a destination brought to life for those who love golf and style and bring their game with them wherever they go. Each drop will feature intricate details and patterns crafted to capture the feel of what the host site is all about.

The first assortments of apparel, footwear and accessories, the Saltwater Collection, was released in conjunction with the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. Saltwater brings together some of the most sought-after tourist attractions in the Bahamas – swimming with sharks, sting rays, and turtles. The second in the series, launching this week at Tournament of Champions, is the Island Time collection, featuring two signature prints inspired by the tropical vibes of the Hawaiian Islands. Fowler is slated to help launch this collection today, wearing the Island Pineapple print shirt and short inspired by progressive sportswear, during his Pro-Am round.

“A lot of thought and detail went into the design of each collection to make up our Game That Travels apparel, footwear and accessories,” said Chris MacNeill, Senior Product Line Manager, PUMA Golf Apparel. “It’s not just about a fun print, it’s about telling a story. These collections were designed to do just that, to transport golfers to a specific location, allowing them to experience a bit of what our athletes enjoy each season. Our players travel to some of the most iconic places in the world, and we wanted to bring the spirit and essence of those places to life.”

Each collection in the “Game That Travels” line provides the performance needed to handle business on the course, while assuring that your style game travels with you wherever life brings you. While each of these collections are designed to capture the vibe of each notable location, they bring with them a subtle sophistication that balances a timeless look with the inspiration of bespoke fashion sense. The remaining six collections will not be released until their corresponding key moments in time along the 2020 Tour schedule, when Rickie, Gary and Bryson will roll them out during play.

French Lick Resort Unveils New 71-Room Valley Tower, Opens First-Ever Sports Book and Sports Viewing Lounge

FRENCH LICK, IN — French Lick Resort, one of America’s greatest golf-resort destinations for group and buddies’ trips recently unveiled new world-class accommodations and exciting entertainment amenities in its 51,000 square-foot, single-level French Lick Casino.

The new six-story Valley Tower, a 71-room hotel located adjacent to the resort’s spacious Event Center and French Lick Casino, made its debut in November and is near the casino’s new, first-ever Sports Book and nearby luxurious sports viewing lounge. The finely-appointed Valley Tower features connecting-room options as well as 12 suites that are configurable in one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom combinations. Adorned with modern décor, Valley Tower rooms provide a new look and a complementary option to guestrooms at the resort’s historic French Lick and West Baden Springs Hotels.

The Sportsbook, operated in association with leading online gaming and sports betting company Rush Street Interactive (RSI), offers betting on a wide array of sporting events including professional football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, college sports and more. Wagers can be placed at the betting counter with a live sportsbook ticket writer during sportsbook hours of operation, or at a sports betting kiosk 24 hours a day.

The adjacent, brilliantly-designed sports-viewing lounge features a pair of state-of-the-art 14-feet-long by eight-feet-high LED video walls that anchor the lively sportsbook viewing area. Along with 18 additional TV monitors, the sportsbook also includes eight self-serve betting kiosks, and up to three staffed over-the-counter betting windows to accommodate guests.

French Lick Resort has been awarded status as both a “Top 100 Resort in North America” by GOLF Magazine as well as the Golf Digest‘s Editors’ Choice Award as one of the “Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest.” Since the early 1900’s, golf has been an integral part of this resort area.

In 2009, Pete Dye created a visually stunning masterpiece, which has quickly become one of the most highly acclaimed courses in the country. Both the Donald Ross and Pete Dye courses are ranked among the Top 100 in America’s Greatest Public Courses and are currently ranked as the No. 1 and 2 Courses You Can Play in Indiana.
