Sun Mountain Golf Bags Awarded Gold

Missoula, Montana – The June 2012 issue of Golf Digest magazine includes the annual Golf Bag Hot List. This year the editors reviewed 65 bags and found 20 favorites; three of which are Sun Mountain golf bags. The Sun Mountain KG:2 stand bag and C-130 cart bag were awarded Hot List Gold and the Sun Mountain Three 5 stand bag was awarded Silver. All three of these bags are available at golf shops now, call 800-227-9224 or visit to find your nearest retailer.

The new for 2012 KG:2 stand bag from Sun Mountain offers more of all that golfers have come to appreciate about Sun Mountain golf bags. Built on the same frame as the ever-popular Superlight 3.5; KG:2 offers more pockets, more hand-holds and more style. KG:2 features a 9.5” oval, four-way top with full-length club dividers, three integrated top handles and a new lift-assist pocket handle, eight pockets (including a new mobile phone specific pocket), and a cart-friendly bottom. KG:2 is available now in a striking array of colors with a retail price of $199.

About the KG:2, the Golf Digest Hot List editors said, “The easily adjustable five-piece strap system is designed to improve the balance point, producing the feel of a lighter load, and the eight pockets include one designed for your cell phone.”

This year marks the fifth consecutive year that Sun Mountain’s top-selling cart bag, the C-130, has been awarded Hot List Gold. Regarding the C-130 cart bag, the editors said, “Features include a 15-way divided top, nine forward-facing pockets and a lined pouch for a distance-measuring device. A slot lets the cart strap pass through the pockets without restricting access.”

The Sun Mountain Three 5 rounded out the bags recognized as award winning. The 2012 Three 5 is built to carry. The Three 5 is light, uses the X-Strap® Dual Strap System and Sun Mountain’s state-of-the-art roller bottom leg mechanism. The Three 5 also offers several cart-friendly features to include a cart strap tunnel, leg lock system and cart-friendly bottom.
