Marblehead, Mass. (February 7, 2014) - With rain in the forecast for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, participants could be digging into their golf bags for a crumpled, neglected rainsuit.
But, for the regular, year-round caddies at Pebble Beach Golf Links, they'll be wearing an old friend, the rainsuit they wear on any inclement day at one of the world's most spectacular golf courses...a ProQuip Ultralite Tour rain jacket and trousers.
ProQuip has been the official weatherwear provider for the Pebble Beach Golf Links caddies for the last three years. And at a place where the weather can be fickle, the annual renewal is telling of the ability of ProQuip to keep the caddies warm and dry.
"We are thoroughly honored to gain such consistent acceptance by perhaps the most discerning group of caddies in the United States when it comes to weatherwear," says Peter Dalton, CEO of ProQuip USA. "We wish them sunny skies for the tournament, but know they'll be comfortable and functional should weather conditions turn dodgy."
ProQuip is widely regarded as the inventor of the modern day rainsuit in 1981. Over the years, the Edinburgh, Scotland-based company has earned the trust of thousands of amateur and professional golfers, including 19 of the last 30 Ryder Cup Teams - both European and American. This fall ProQuip will outfit its 20th team as the Preferred Supplier to the 2014 European Ryder Cup Team at Gleneagles, Scotland.
ProQuip USA's 2014 Weatherwear Collection includes a complete line of waterproof, quiet, breathable, stretch performance and ultra-lightweight rain suits and wind apparel for men and women.
