THE GOG BLOG by Rory Spears, Editor and Director of Content for the Chicago’s #1 Online Golf News Source. Follow Rory on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter @GogBlogGuy. Wearing the Sunice Typhoon outdoor jacket.

Golf can be played in all sorts of weather, so every time you head out on the course you need to be prepared for what Mother Nature might do in the course of your round.

These days outerwear manufacturers are more challenged in the designs and material they create to give a golfer everything he or she might need.

First off if your jacket is too tight it will be hard to swing the club, second if pants are too tight it will be hard to walk, or bend over to pick up your ball, or put a tee in the ground.

Rain can come on warm days, so it’s important that you can stay dry while not getting to hot in rain wear or outerwear designed to keep you dry. When a cold front moves in you want something thin enough to swing, and something that can keep you warm.

Before you tee off, or after your done, you might want something you can wear around the clubhouse or practice area. Some golfers ask more than that, they want style that can be worn on and off the course, and away from the course. Colors are important too, and for both men and women.

Stepping up to meet all those challenges and more is the Sunice Company based in Canada. Even though Sunice is in Canada, they are making headway with golfers in America. Sunice does not pay players to wear their clothes on tour, but they have more players wearing their clothes on tour than any other brand (Per the Darrell Survey).

Derek Faith VP of Sales Sunice Outwear.

Vice President of Sales Derek Faith says that the company takes pride in putting out the best possible product it can.

“The fact that tour players are wearing our outerwear without us paying them tells you something,” says Faith. “More players are inquiring about our products all the time.”

Faith showed off a big a supply of the product line at the show, saying that much of it would be released later in the year, and be in the pro-shops and golf stores in the fall.

So if you need outerwear for on or off the golf course, visit your pro shop or golf retail store and ask for or ask to order Sunice. Sunice has not yet created a line for the junior golfers.
