MISSOULA, Mont. (March 26, 2013) -- The recently released Golf Datatech 2012 retail market share report shows Sun Mountain is the best selling golf bag.

Ed Kowachek, President of Sun Mountain said, "We appreciate that golf shop owners and consumers continue to recognize our efforts in the design and quality of our golf bags and helped push Sun Mountain to be the best in the category."
Kowachek continued, "Good news within the numbers includes the balance we have achieved between sales at on- and off-course golf specialty stores and between cart bags and carry bags. We are not overly reliant on any one channel of distribution or any one type of golf bag, which is a very strong position for us."

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.
