Golf is one of the most popular sporting games in the UK with millions of people teeing off every day, both here in the UK and in popular golf break destinations such as Turkey, Dubai and America.
Whether you play for leisure or are a PGA Golf Pro, spending several hours on the greens will expose you to 27 times the recommended levels of UV rays without protection so it’s no surprise to hear that the Professional Golfers Association are keen to promote sun safety in the sport.
Techniblock® Suncare Ltd works with The PGA to help raise awareness of the importance of protecting your skin whilst enjoying a game of golf by providing a long lasting, high quality, easy to apply sunscreen to the golfing community via selected PGA Pro Shops.
What makes Techniblock® different to all the other sun protection on the UK market is its non-greasy, long lasting formula. The aerosol spray dries instantly on the skin to provide an invisible barrier against harmful UV rays; one application will last for an entire round of golf without the need to top up and because it is a fragrance-free and breathable sunscreen that won’t block pores, it will not irritate the skin, reducing the risk of prickly heat.
Golf Pro Jamie Cundy, who underwent treatment for skin cancer last year, has trialled Techniblock® and given it a resounding thumbs up."It’s the best sun protection on the market by far and an absolute must-have for your golf bag. It’s really easy to use and is very resistant to perspiration, perfect for sport”.
Jamie, who spent a week with a group of golfers in Thailand, is encouraging everyone to use sun protection when out on the golf course, whether it's in the UK or abroad.
Techniblock® comes in a sealed canister that won’t leak and has an extended shelf life, so there’s no waste, meaning great value for money.
Darren Bragg, Golf Pro and Business Development Manager for Golfbreaks.com, another PGA-affiliated organisation, is also a fan. "It's a great add-on to give to my clients when we are on a golfing break and another revenue stream for Pros" said Darren.
Techniblock is manufactured in South Africa to the highest standards by the pharmaceutical company Technikon, in their world class laboratory. It is sold in many South African golf clubs and was introduced to UK golf clubs through The PGA in 2016.
Initially only available online at www.techniblock.co.uk and Amazon, the introduction to golf retail has seen the expansion in to bricks and mortar retailing for the first time.
