The PGA of America announced on Wednesday that Canadian-based Sunice has been chosen as an official licensed product partner for the 2011 and 2012 PGA Championship as well as the 2012 Ryder Cup.
The Sunice gear is made with GORE-TEX, which should solve the problem the 2010 U.S. Ryder Cup team encountered when its Sun Mountain suits began leaking at Celtic Manor last October -- though an outfitter has yet to be chosen.
The company will also provide the waterproof outerwear that will be worn by the 2011 and 2013 U.S. Solheim Cup teams.
The 2011 PGA Championship will be played at Atlanta Athletic Club on Aug. 11-14, while the 2012 Ryder Cup will be held at The Medinah Country Club in suburban Chicago. -- Brian Wacker
