Added International Sports Management founder Andrew “Chubby” Chandler: “A classy person and player with an equally classy product. It’s a perfect partnership.”
Oosthuizen joins Genuine Performers Paula Creamer, Pablo Larrazabal, Hunter Mahan, and Mike Weir wearing Sundog Eyewear Mela-Lens sunglasses. For 2011, the newest member of the team will wear the Draw model.
“Mela” is an abbreviation for Melanin, a naturally produced pigment that acts as a sunscreen protecting the skin from High Energy Visible light or “blue” light. In partnership with BNL Sun Lenses, an Essilor company, Sundog Eyewear has created the Sundog Mela-Lens lines utilizing synthetic melanin to produce state-of-the-art melanin lens technology. Mela-Lens absorbs light seamlessly over a broad spectral range providing superior blue light filtration with minimal color distortion, and 100 per cent UVA/B protection. Mela-Lens features the Eternity Hard Coat for superior abrasion resistance.
The 2011 Sundog Eyewear line includes the Paula Creamer Collection; Hunter Mahan’s Signature H Series; Mike Weir’s Weir Golf Signature Series; Mela-Lens Polarized and Mela-Lens Photochromic models; and the complete Core Golf line.
