Callaway® Apparel Launches 2019 Weather Series

MIAMI, FL – Callaway Apparel announces the launch of its 2019 Weather Series, a revolutionary collection of Men’s and Women’s outerwear that provides the ultimate in functionality, playability and versatility for the performance-driven golfer. The 2019 Weather Series is focused on one thing: helping golfers play unrestricted golf in every weather condition. Featuring their revolutionary SWING TECH™ construction in nearly every piece, the 2019 Weather Series is Callaway’s most technical and most complete lineup to date.

Highlights of the Men’s 2019 Weather Series include:

Callaway StormGuard™ Waterproof Jacket & Pants – Designed with SWING TECH™ construction and mechanical four-way stretch fabric, the StormGuard waterproof jacket and pants offer golfers superior range of motion in even the toughest of elements.  Brand new for 2019, these products feature a 15K JIS waterproof rating, Callaway’s highest ever, as well as multiple fully seam-sealed, splash proof pockets. The full-zip breathable waterproof jacket, available in three colors, is built with adjustable storm cuffs for added protection while the pants, offered in multiple lengths, features an adjustable hem for the perfect fit.

SWING TECH Waffle Fleece – Brand new from Callaway, the Swing Tech Waffle Fleece offers golfers the perfect combination of warmth, playability and protection from the elements. Featuring Swing Tech construction and four-way stretch polyester/spandex blended fabric, this mid-layer allows for better range of motion with every swing. The interior thermal lining provides superior warmth while UV Block UPF 50 helps protect skin from harmful UV radiation. The Swing Tech Waffle Fleece is available in eight new colors and Big & Tall sizing.

SWING TECH Outlast ¼ Zip – Callaway’s most technically advanced mid-weight layering now features SWING TECH, allowing golfers to play unrestricted in every condition. This ¼ zip pullover is constructed with Outlast® technology, originally developed for NASA, which utilizes phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. Also equipped with UV Block UPF 50 to prevent the sun’s harmful UV rays from reaching the skin, the Outlast ¼ zip, available in five colors, is a versatile, performance-driven layer that is built to brave the elements.

SWING TECH Windshirts – Available in three distinct styles (short sleeve, ¼ zip and full zip), Callaway’s new windshirts are constructed with Repel technology to resist wind and water by creating a barrier of protection against inclement weather. SWING TECH construction and four-way stretch fabric allows for better range of motion while the adjustable storm cuffs, toggle hems and multiple full size pockets provide golfers the details they need for peak performance.

High Gauge Full Zip Vest – Crafted from a soft, insulated thermal fabric and available in three colors, this vest delivers practical comfort and style. The four-way stretch polyester/spandex fabric ensures maximum stretch while the full zip front is easily adjustable, making it the perfect complementary layering piece for fall golf.

The stylish and functional Women’s Weather Series collection takes a modular approach to offer multi-wearing options for all seasons.  While designed for performance by incorporating SWING TECH ergonomic and articulated seams, the women’s collection is complemented with smart feminine details. The collection features a variety of new layering offerings including:

  • Mixed Media Quilted Jacket
  • Swing Tech Lightweight Fleece
  • Floral Jacquard and Printed Sun Protection ¼ Zip
  • Full Zip Wind & Water Resistant Jacket

New Kube Golf Travel Bag Folds Up Tiny

MISSOULA, MT – The innovators at Sun Mountain have done it again with the introduction of the Kube golf travel bag. Kube looks like an ordinary, small, plastic suitcase but unbuckle it and it opens into a full-sized golf travel bag. Kube’s folded size is merely 9″ x 13″ x 14.5″ and weighs only 6.8 lbs.

Kube is constructed from durable, ballistic style fabric in combination with plastic half-shells with dense foam padding through the top of the bag to protect golf clubs. When not in use, Kube folds down to 9″ x 13″ x 14.5″ for storage. When unfolded for use, Kube has internal dimensions of 52″ x 14″ x 14″ offering room for a golf stand bag or cart bag.

Kube’s fabric is further reinforced in wear areas and heavy-duty, two-way zippers run the full length of the golf travel bag to make it easy to load.

Kube weighs only 6.8 lbs and comes in eight colors: Carbon Fiber, Graphite/Pink, Inferno, Tropic, Cobalt, White, Bumblebee and Rush.

PING Signs Tania Tare, Influencer, Trick-shot Artist

PHOENIX, AZ – Tania Tare, a popular social media influencer and accomplished golf trick-shot artist, has signed on as a PING Brand Ambassador, said PING President John K. Solheim. Tare, a native of New Zealand, uses Instagram to share her imaginative and highly difficult trick shots. She also has a message, using her platform to encourage everyone to play golf.

Now based in Scottsdale, Ariz., Tare started sharing her trick shots with friends to show how fun her sport can be. “Trick shots are good for the game because they break the stereotype of golf a little,” she says. Tare’s athleticism shows in her trick shots, which highlight her soccer and snowboarding moves. “I incorporate sports that I am more naturally good at.”

Tare will conduct trick-shot shows for PING at various events and promote the brand as a social media influencer, Solheim said. “Tania’s trick shots are the kind you watch over and over because you can’t believe that what you’re seeing is real, but it is – she’s that good,” he said. “Audiences will be thoroughly entertained, and she’ll be a tremendous representative for PING. There aren’t many females performing trick shots, so she’s a wonderful person to go out and inspire girls and women to play golf. She has amazing talent and a meaningful message.”

Tare played on a scholarship at Florida International University and has competed in LPGA tournaments. Her trick-shot videos can be seen on her Instagram account. A recent feature garnered more than 9.5 million views.
