Sunice Most Worn on PGA Tour According to the Darrell Survey Sunice is the number one most-used outerwear for the 2015 season of the PGA Tour. “We are honored by this validation,” says Conrad Tappert, President of Sunice. “These professional athletes need equipment for the body that provides maximum protection and freedom of movement to allow them to perform at the highest level. Their choice was clear – Sunice.” “It’s a rarity for golf brands to ever find themselves in this position of #1,” continues Tappert. “Premier golf shops choose to carry the #1 ball on tour, the #1 driver on tour, and now they can have confidence in carrying the #1 outerwear on tour. This is a major game changer for the Sunice brand.”WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
