Johnson to showcase Tour Stretch & Thermal Performance Wool line
Jul '08
Trend-setting apparel designer Ralph Dunning announces that Dunning Golf staff player Zach Johnson will showcase selections from the brand's Fall 2008 collection including Tour Stretch outerwear and Thermal Performance Wool sweaters during this week's British Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

At a site prone to unpredictable weather, Johnson will rely on Dunning's unique playing system to keep him comfortable regardless of the conditions.

His distinctive apparel choices will include a layered array of pieces blending classic styling with leading-edge technical performance.

Designed specifically for the game, these garments provide protection from the elements without excessive layering that can hinder the swing.

“Our apparel is meticulously crafted using the finest materials, facilities and manufacturing processes,” says Dunning.

“The special attention we pay to golf-specific details, classic styling and game-enhancing technical features appeals to discerning country club players and major champions alike.

Zach, in particular, has truly embraced our brand philosophy and enjoyed the benefits of wearing our clothing both on and off the course.”

Featuring uncompromised playability and freedom of movement, Dunning Tour Stretch outerwear provides protection from both rain and wind when playing in hash conditions.

Waterproof for up to six hours, the entire shell uses four-way stretch fabric to completely conform to the movements of the body, while a lack of excess material gives a clean, streamlined appearance.

Quiet and fully seam-sealed, it features a mesh lightweight liner that wicks moisture to maintain a pleasant inner climate.

Among the game's most advanced technical pieces, the Thermal Performance Wool Sweater boasts the rare combination of classic, Merino wool elegance in a machine-washable blend.

These stain-repellant, cool-weather tops are ideal for layering and feature natural moisture management that will not wear- or wash-out for the life of the garment.

In warmer conditions, Johnson will rely on the company's Interface Stretch Wesley and Interface Stretch Turnbull polos, offering permanent moisture management, enhanced breathability, sun protection and odor control in a variety of modern prep color combinations.

Dunning Golf continues to strengthen its presence throughout North America via focused distribution at marquee green grass accounts, such as Adios, Aronimink, BallenIsles, Baltusrol, Bearpath, Butler National, Canoe Brook, Chicago Golf Club, Coconut Creek, Congressional, Dallas National, Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort, Four Seasons Resort & Club, Hartford Golf Club, Hazeltine National, Inverness Golf Club, Isleworth, Kukio, Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, Liberty National, Mizner Country Club, Nanea Golf Club, Naples National, Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Desert Mountain, Southern Highlands, The Club at Mediterra, Trump International, Sherwood, Southern Hills, Troon North, Vaquero Club, Winged Foot, Wynn Golf Club and others. It is also found at Golf Town, Canada's premier golf retailer.

In stores now, the Fall 2008 collection retails from $35 for some compression undergarments to $250 for the Thermal Performance Wool Sweater. Sizes range from XS-2XL in tops and 30”-42” in bottoms.
