London Ontario Golf has published its Top Golf Gear for 2009 list, with Sumi-G head covers winning as best new golf accessory.
“The Sumi-G head covers are a solid addition to the golf scene,” said Jeffrey Reed, editor, London Ontario Golf. “They offer attractive, tough-as-nails protection for valuable golf clubs. That’s why we chose the Sumi-G head covers as this year’s winner of Best New Golf Accessory.”
Reed added, “This is the 5th year for London Ontario Golf, a project which stems from my 20-plus year as a nationally-recognized golf journalist. With innovation and technology reaching greater heights than ever before, this year’s list of the top golf gear is the best ever. We test everything we review and try to offer a complete analysis of new equipment, apparel and accessories. Our Reviews section is widely read by golfers across North America, and beyond.”
London Ontario Golf reviewed the Sumi-G head covers earlier this year. “When a new golf accessory oozing both class and functionality hits the market, it stands out like a Tiger Woods stinger off the tee. Here’s a new product from Utah-based Sumi-G – the SumiG head cover – that provides both style and function from tee to green. In fact, when your clubs are in view of the window seat you have at the 19th hole, you just may want to invite them in for a drink, they’ll look so good.”
Sumi-G Head Covers
The patented Sumi-G head covers were introduced at the 2009 PGA Merchandise show and are available in driver, fairway, and hybrid sizes. A new color and new customization options will be launched at the 2010 PGA Merchandise show in Orlando.
“Since we launched Sumi-G less than one year ago, the response has been tremendous,” said Marius Kvinge, president, Sumi-G. “We are thrilled that London Ontario Golf recognized the originality we bring to a golf staple. It is an honor to be recognized for our efforts.”
Kvinge added, “We are committed to developing elegant products that become part of a golfer's routine and make the golf experience more enjoyable. Watch for exciting new designs for 2010.”
