  1. Sun Mountain Contest/Giveaway Win a Sun Mountain Speed Cart GT or Micro Cart GT! https://shop.sunmountain.com/push-carts.html Howdy forum members… Sun Mountain has partnered with us here at TST to offer up a nice little giveaway. Unlike the other contests we've done where you're asked to make a prediction, this one is going to be a randomly drawn raffle, and you can enter in three ways, multiple times: Post here in this topic. Limit of one post of this type for the month of June. Post on Twitter, and then share (by embedding) the Tweet in a separate post here. Limit of one every three days. Post on the Facebook, and then share (by embedding) the post in a separate post here. Limit of one every three days. Basically, when the contest ends, either myself or a Sun Mountain representative will randomly choose a number between 2 and the number of posts in the topic. If that post is a valid entry post from a user who has not invalidated his entries, that member will win! If the post is not an entry or is from an invalid user, they'll try another random number and repeat the process until a winning post (and member) is found. Entries - whether made on Facebook, Twitter, or here at TST - must contain: A link to this topic (https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/94053-win-a-new-cart-from-sun-mountain) A link to the cart you'd like to win (choose either the Speed Cart GT or the Micro Cart GT from the push carts page here). An image of the cart you'd like to win in the color you'd like to win. An enthusiastic and/or promotional phrase like "I'm hoping to win a Lime Speed Cart GT from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap" or something like that. (For Facebook and Twitter, please mention or link to the appropriate user/page - the links are below). Be creative! For your one non-Twitter/Facebook post here in this topic, write a short paragraph about what winning a cart would mean for your golf game and how you're looking forward to using it. In other words… Everyone gets one free entry here. Just follow the rules above, reply to this topic, and post. You can post on Facebook and Twitter as much as you like, but you can only post a unique link here (so it embeds, which should be automatic) each once every three days (three days must elapse between entries). You have to post and embed the Tweet/post here for it to count. So you can make a post here for the month. You can also post one tweet and one Facebook post today, three days from now, three days after that, etc. through the end of June. Sun Mountain is on Twitter at @SunMountainGolf and on Facebook at SunMountainSports. The Sand Trap is on Twitter at @the_sand_trap and on Facebook at TheSandTrapGolf. This contest ends June 30th, 2017, at midnight mountain time (U.S.). Winner will be notified by a private message by July 7, 2017 and will have 24 hours to respond to the PM or we may select another prize winner. Violating any of the above rules invalidates all of your entries. Winner must live in the United States, or be able to ship the prize to the U.S. TST reserves the right to further clarify the rules in any subsequent posts, but really, we're trying to keep this pretty simple and straightforward. Use some common sense. If anything's unclear, ask me. Choose from either the Speed Cart GT or the Micro Cart GT at https://shop.sunmountain.com/push-carts.html.
  2. Sun mountain speed e cart Looking for your 2 cents. I got a Speed E Cart with a set of used clubs I got for my wife. It has no batteries, but rolls really nice, has all the accessories. Not sure if it works. Not sure I wanna drop 80ish buck to find out. Any thought on testing or should I just use it as a push cart? Or toss it with the clubs my wife said no she has no interest in playing. To bad thought they are a complete set of Jack Nicklaus aides clubs older but in great shape. So tell me your thoughts. I'm not overly techie so dumb down Igbo possible any testing tips lol. Thanks. Todd
  3. I'm apparently getting a new bag for Fathers Day, which is good because my current bag is definitely FUBAR. I know this because the wife told me so and she wanted to make sure she didn't buy me something I didn't like. Right now I'm leaning towards a Sun Mountain C130s, though not necessarily this year's model. I wanted to see if anyone else has any experience with it or with other bags that are comparable. I like that it's got more storage than I need even though I'll still manage to stuff it to the gills. I also like the 14 way full length dividers (my current bag has them as well), but it doesn't have a putter well which I'm kind of disappointed in. I know it's a bit heavier than most stand bags but I don't care about the weight because I don't carry - I walk with a pull cart that I'd like to upgrade in the near future. The biggest draw for me is that it's basically a cart bag with legs. My current bag doesn't have legs and it sucks when I go to the range. I hate putting my bag on the ground and I have to because it falls over so easily. I didn't put too much thought into this when I got it and now I know better. I guess that's pretty much it. Please offer any advice, experiences, or suggestions you may have, thanks.

  5. I'm not going to lie… I'm a bit partial to Sun Mountain for a lot of things, including rain gear, push carts, outerwear, wind jackets, golf bags, etc. I like the idea of a company that's focused on doing just golf, and doing it well. There's a reason other big-name manufacturers basically sub-contract their products out to Sun Mountain - they do a great job. Sun Mountain is releasing their new Elite series rain gear, and here's a bit of information about it. Before I share that, though, just one last quick comment: if you have to play in the rain (and the hardcore among us will face that option somewhat often…), you're way, way better served being warm and dry. Sun Mountain gear does a great job of both. Before I add some photos, I didn't know that about the 37.5% humidity. I did some quick Googling and it looks like the range is really 30-55% or so, putting 37.5% at the bottom range, but 35.5° C is 99.5° F, which is basically the same as 98.6°, so… I'll forgive them the "cooler" sounding marketing name instead of calling it "98.6/30-55" fabric. The rain gear is also simple and classic without calling a bunch of attention to itself. The only bummer is the lack of differently colored pants… I think just black is available. What's your current rain gear? If you were going to get some new rain gear from Sun Mountain, which of their products would you pick? https://shop.sunmountain.com/mens-rainwear.html
  6. Predict the Winner of the 2016 U.S. Open with The Sand Trap and Sun Mountain! WHO do you think will WIN the U.S. Open in 2016 at Oakmont and what SCORE will they shoot? PLEASE READ the rules thoroughly. Each contest people are disqualified for simple mistakes. To enter, post your answer right here in this thread along with the bold text "I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain!" Note that you are NOT predicting who will finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd; you are picking three players to win and the score(s) they will shoot. The first choice carries tremendous weight (see the rules below for more), while the second and third choices exist simply in case we don't have a winner selected by anyone's first selection. The Prizes First Place One first-place winner will win a Sun Mountain Reflex golf push cart and a Sync golf bag (the color of which is up to you!): https://shop.sunmountain.com/best-product-reflex.html https://shop.sunmountain.com/sync-bag-18750-detail.html Reflex golf push carts from Sun Mountain fold and open easier, have a smaller folded footprint and weigh less than other golf carts. With a new, innovative folding process, Reflex is arguably the easiest cart on the market to fold and unfold. And, the Sync golf bag has a bottom molded specifically to sync with Sun Mountain carts. Second Place The second-place winner will win one of either a Three 5 golf carry bag or C-130 golf cart bag https://shop.sunmountain.com/best-product-c130.html https://shop.sunmountain.com/2015-superlite-3-5-17919-detail.html The Rules - All qualifying entries must be received no later than Wednesday, June 15, 2016 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City). - Winners will be notified within 24 hours of the completion of The 2016 U.S. Open and will have 48 hours to claim their prize. - You must have a shipping address within the 50 United States of America or Canada. - You must be a registered member of The Sand Trap in good standing. - You must be aged eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry. - Your answer must include the visible and bold text "I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain!", the FULL NAME (first and last, for the purposes of proper and unique identification) and the score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) of the player you are predicting to win the 2016 U.S. Open, as well as your 2nd and 3rd choices (same rules apply - full name, score in relation to par). - The Winner will be selected as the first person in the contest to correctly pick both the winner and the score. The runner up will be the second person to correctly pick the winner and score or be the first person to pick closest to the winner/score. - One entry per person and per household. Any additional entries or modifications invalidate all entries. - If we suspect fraud of any kind - suspicious multiple entries, for example - we reserve the right to award the prize to the next valid entry in the order established above. Details regarding the green, underlined rule: - It's very simple. The winner is the first person (who satisfies the other rules) to choose the correct winner and score with their first choice. If nobody picks the correct score, the winner is the first person to have the closest score for the correct winner. If nobody chooses the correct winner with their first choice, we repeat the process for everyone's second choice, and then the third. - In other words, if someone chooses Joe Smith for their first choice - at any score - and you choose him for your second choice, you've wasted your second choice. - Think of your picks like draft picks. Your second and third choices should be someone you don't think will be chosen in the first "round." Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize after being notified.. Again, please read the details about how to go about entering the contest and picking players. Don't pick top ten players for your 2nd and 3rd picks. Example for this contest would look like this: I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain! 1) Old Tom Morris -3 2) Francis Ouimet +2 3) Gene Sarazen -5
  7. If you're looking for the perfect holiday gifts for yourself or for the special golfers in your life, look no further!

As the holidays approach, it is a given there will be a week or two where the parties are at an all-time high and the nutritional value of the foods will be at an all time low. Glukos is going to be your saving-grace as the best and healthiest way to keep your energy level up without adding sugar beyond the pumpkin pie. Glucose, also known as the “good” sugar that the body produces and is the main ingredient in GLUKOS, is the ONLY fuel for the human body and provides it with an ideal energy source allowing for peak performance. GLUKOS comes in six different delivery mechanisms, including powder, ready–to–drink, gummies, tablets, bars and gels. Products Available: Gummies, Tablets, Powder, Ready to Drink and Gel (Orange, Fruit Punch and Lemon) along with bars (Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Apple Cinnamon and Lemon). Callaway Chrome Soft Golf Balls $37.99, for more go to Callaway Chrome Soft. Callaway is out to bust myths about golf balls either being long but too firm or soft but too short with the creation of the Chrome Soft ball. It has a three-piece construction with a compression of around 65, lower than the majority of balls used out on tour, and it features a new ‘SoftFast’ core, which retains energy as the ball compresses and deforms on the face at impact, but also returns to its original shape quicker. Callaway says this results in lower spin and more distance. Great gifts and Budget Friendly ($75 to $300) GAME Golf LIVE $299.99 (previous owners of the Game Golf Classic can upgrade for $149 if they get it before November 11th). For more go to GAME Golf. The new tracker dubbed GAME Golf LIVE gets its name from the new smartphone paired app, which enables you to get more information when out on the course. GAME Golf consists of a wearable receiver that clips to your waistband and a bunch of sensors that plug into the top of your clubs. You tap the top of the club on your belt before you play a shot, and when you get back you'll see a map of your shots, as well as stats on average distances with each club, success rates, putting data and a whole lot more. GAME Golf LIVE adds real time insights by connecting to a smartphone app. You can use it for yardages to the pin, a major omission from the last model and a real bone of contention for those who need to fork out for a GPS watch and the GAME Golf system. PING Glide Wedges $129.99 per club, for more go to PING. The clubhead is made from 431 steel that PING says helps promote a soft feel, while the chrome plating improves contact consistency in wet conditions. Glide wedges also feature a 120-gram wedge-specific CFS (Control, Feel and Stability) shaft that PING says helps lower the launch and create the optimum ball flight. The Gorge Grooves are matched to the loft to suit the shots you’re most likely to play. The 47°-54° options have less aggressive grooves that deliver consistent spin and control on full shots, while the 56°-60° options have more aggressive grooves to boost spin on shorter shots. PING says the Glide wedges are their most versatile and consistent wedge line to date thanks to the Dyla-wedge grip (longer for gripping down for trajectory control), CFS Wedge shaft, four sole options (TS, SS, WS and ES) with added bounce and loft-optimized Gorge grooves. Odyssey Works Tank Cruiser Putters $249.99, For more go to Odyssey Tank Cruiser Putters.

The Fusion RX face insert in each Works Tank Cruiser model combines the soft feel of the White Hot insert with a thin stainless steel mesh and mill pattern of the Metal-X insert. Odyssey says this produces less skid and a faster roll off the clubface. Sun Mountain 2Five Golf Bag $219.99, for more go to Sun Mountain. For those who love to walk and want the latest and greatest.

Bobby Jones Merino Birdseye 1/4 Zip/V-Neck Sweater $225/$195, For more go to Bobby Jones. When it comes to golf sweaters, few offer the quality and comfort of Bobby Jones. In fact, the texture and incredible feel of their Birdseye Merino 1/4 Zip may make it their best yet. Birdseye stitching elevates the visual and drape appeal of luxuriously warm merino wool without restrictive weight, making this the perfect sweater for cool weather golf. Note the marbled zipper pull and the knit stripes inside the convertible collar. 100% extra fine merino wool. Available in Berry, Black, Celery and Eggplant. Sizing (S-XXL). Adidas ClimaHeat Concept Fill Jacket $150, for more go to Adidas Golf.

Motion is the shoe that's worn to the office so you can hit a bucket of balls during lunch or play a quick nine after work....and you don't have to change shoes. They're incredibly flexible and comfortable and they hold up in all types of the elements. Big Ticket Items TaylorMade M1 Driver $499, for more go to TaylorMade M1. The TaylorMade M1 Driver features a multi-material crown. By using Carbon Fiber on the driver crown, TaylorMade says they were able to save weight and implement an innovative “T-Track” adjustment system on the bottom. TaylorMade says the two sliding weights allow golfers to easily adjust the driver to fit their swing. Golfers can move the horizontal weight left or right to create a fade or draw, or leave it neutral for a straight shot. A player can also move the back weight forward for a lower ball flight or back to get the ball higher in the air. The diagram above explains the adjustability and ball flight options. Callaway Apex CF 16 Irons $1199.99 (set of 8), for more go to Callaway Apex CF 16. The original Callaway Apex irons were targeted at mid- and lower-handicap golfers who wanted forged feel with a boost in distance. The new Apex CF 16 irons try to give those same players more distance and feel with a different design and materials. In an effort to increase ball speeds, engineers created a face cup with Big Bertha and XR that was welded to the body of the iron and wrapped around the perimeter of the head to give it a 360-degree annulus, increasing the flexibility of the club face for faster ball speeds, even on off-center hits. Thin faces can create sounds at impact that many golfers don’t like, so Callaway tuned the Apex CF 16 irons with a thermal plastic urethane piece affixed to the back of the head to dampen vibrations. Callaway says the final result of these new design elements and materials is a club that has forged feel and provides more distance, especially on mis-hits. Bushnell Tour X Rangefinder $499.99, for more go to Bushnell. Replacing the Tour V3 model, the Bushnell Tour X features Exchange Technology, which uses two interchangeable faceplates slotted on the end of the device. One of these faceplates is black, which is the non-slope version permitted for use in competitions. The other faceplate is red and features a plug-in that activates the technology inside the device to offer slope-adjusted distances based on elevation changes. The new Bushnell Tour X also features a Dual Display that allows users to easily switch between the bright red Vivid Display for dim conditions or the crisp black display. It has a range of up to 1,300 yards and also boasts PinSeeker with the vibrating Jolt function up to 450 yards when it locks onto the flag. The TOUR X is also equipped with second-generation E.S.P. (Extreme Speed Precision) technology, which provides yardages five times faster and more accurately than ever before. Distances from under 125 yards and in are displayed to the nearest tenth of a yard.
