Anna Rawson golf babeAny regular readers here know I’m all for golf babes. In fact, one of the first blogs I visited when I got back from my latest travels was the Golf Babes Blog. There’s a nice shot of Annika Sorenstam with a new “look” and a little down the line I saw a post on Anna Rawson. Anna is ranked in the “top ten most beautiful female athletes” by Sports Illustrated. IMO Anna Rawson makes Natalie Gulbis look like a little girl.

Anna is now endorsing Ecco shoes as pointed out by the Golf Babes blog. As I pondered in this post, will the customers even register the brand name in their heads or will they just be going gaga over Anna not remember?

I’ve put a couple of pics of Anna in the HOG Photo Gallery and you are sure to also find more at Golf Punk Online.

Female Czech cancer survivor starts golf company

What a neat story. Mirium in this video is from Prague. She is barely recovering from cancer and was happy to tell me her hair was finally growing back. She’s a very cute lady with a great story and a great eye for women’s golf apparel and design. Making it in the golf business is almost impossible, but if Mirium can survive cancer she should easily succeed in the golf world.

Sun Mountain Micro-J Rain Jacket Review

Sun Mountain Micro-J Golf Rain JacketThere are a few golf companies out there who are truly innovators. At the top of that list you’ll find Sun Mountain. Sun Mountain set a new golf trend in motion with their Speed Cart golf carts. I did a review on the Speed Cart a long time ago and I’m still truly impressed with it. So much in fact that I got one for my son too.

Golf Rain JacketSun Mountain’s innovation isn’t limited to carts. They’ve got a full line of golf bags, outerwear, accessories and more. I hope to be able to feature many of their products here in the future.

Micro-J a.k.a. “Sleeve O’ Rain Jacket”

Every golfer must carry a rain jacket. The Micro-J takes up very little space in your bag and is light as a feather. When you store the jacket in the included plastic case, it’s barely bigger than a sleeve of golf balls. “Give me a sleeve of rain jacket please.”

Micro-J Features

The Micro-J is made out of Teflon®-coated nylon. This makes it completely waterproof. The seams are taped which makes them lighter and waterproof as well. To help keep out wind and water there’s a zip through collar, interior storm flap, drawstring waist, elastic cuffs and an elongated back.

The Micro-J comes with a 1 year water and wind proof guarantee.

On The Course

Doing a review on rain gear is somewhat of a problem. It’s about the only time I as a golfer hope it rains while I’m playing. I had the Micro-J for no less than 2-3 months and never needed it. I used the Micro-J for the first time at a college football game. The rain beaded up on the Micro-J, ran off, and then soaked my supposedly waterproof rain pants (another manufacturer).

Golf Rain Jacket

When I finally got to use the Micro-J during play and I was truly impressed. One thing I really don’t like about putting on rain gear or multiple layers is how restricted my swing feels. No problem with the Micro-J. I was able to freely move in my swing. All parts of my body which were protected by the MJ were completely dry.The Micro-J really helps in the wind. The MJ as just a wind jacket helps a ton. The Teflon®-coated nylon protects you and prevents those chilling drafts.

When you combine rain and wind you can really get a chill. When I’m chilled I hit some pretty bad golf shots. So having the MJ in my bag helps me play better in wind, rain or both.

Critic’s Corner

There’s nothing bad I have to say about the Micro-J, no critiques. The only problem I seemed to have was when there was a bunch water beaded up on the jacket. I had to find creative ways of getting it off without getting my hands or other parts of my body or gear wet.

Conclusion

Sun Mountain’s Micro-J will protect you from wind and rain and takes up about as much space as a sleeve of golf balls, only it weighs much less.
