Sun Mountain Introduces Players Advisory Council
(Missoula, MT) – Sun Mountain, the official golf bag, outerwear and walking cart of the Symetra Tour, introduced its 2012 Players Advisory Council. Players include Jasi Acharya, Jackie Barenborg, Ginger Howard, Brittany Johnson, Brittany Kelly, Marcela Leon, Eileen Vargas, Ashley Tait and Jenny Suh. Members of the team are carrying Sun Mountain bags, wearing Sun Mountain outerwear and, new for the 2012 season, will have the opportunity to use Sun Mountain walking carts in competition.

“We are very excited to continue our sponsorship with the Symetra Tour,” stated Ed Kowachek, President of Sun Mountain. “Most Symetra Tour players don’t use caddies so it is a natural fit for our lightweight carry bags and push carts.”
“Sun Mountain has created an outstanding Players Advisory Council of Symetra Tour professionals,” said Symetra Tour CEO Zayra Calderon. “The players will do a great job of representing the company and will serve as strong brand ambassadors.”
In addition to this Players Advisory Council, Sun Mountain is outfitting the Symetra Tour road staff with outerwear and is also the exclusive golf bag and outerwear company in the Symetra Tour online pro shop.
The Symetra Tour is the most established women’s developmental tour in the world, entering 32 years of structured competition in 2012. The Symetra Tour is known as "the Road to the LPGA" and since 1999, it has been designated as the LPGA’s developmental tour. The Symetra Tour annually awards LPGA membership to its top players. A total of 77 players have automatically "graduated” since 1999. Among the tour’s top alums are Lorena Ochoa, Cristie Kerr, Karrie Webb, Christina Kim and Meg Mallon.
For 30 years Sun Mountain has been a pioneer in the golf industry, revolutionizing golf bags, golf outerwear and golf carts. Sun Mountain's many innovations, including the first lightweight golf bag and modern stand bag, have made it the top golf bag company in North America. Within golf outerwear, Sun Mountain redefined golf-specific performance first with the windshirt, then fleece, and again with its four-way stretch, waterproof, and breathable rainwear. The Sun Mountain Speed Cart golf push cart transformed walking carts and created an entirely new category of golf products. Sun Mountain's "Ahead of Time Design" motto drives the company to continually design and refine golf equipment.
