On Course to Promote Sun Safety for Golfers

On Course to Promote Sun Safety for Golfers

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 itís no surprise to hear that the Professional Golfers Association are keen to promote sun safety in the sport.

Techniblock® Suncare UK has partnered with The PGA to help raise awareness of the importance of protecting your skin whilst enjoying a game of golf.  Techniblock® is now an Official PGA Supplier, providing a long lasting, high quality, easy to apply sunscreen to the golfing community.  

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 wonít block pores, it will not irritate the skin, reducing the risk of prickly heat.

Golf Pro Jamie Cundy, who has undergone treatment for skin cancer recently, has trialled Techniblock® and given it a resounding thumbs up.  "Itís the best sun protection on the market by far and an absolute must-have for your golf bag.  Itís really easy to use and is very resistant to perspiration, perfect for sportĒ.
Jamie, who has just spent the last week with a group of golfers in Thailand, is encouraging everyone to use sun protection when out on the green, whether it's in the UK or abroad.
Techniblock® comes in a sealed canister that wonít leak and has an extended shelf life, so thereís no waste, meaning great value for money.
Darren Bragg, Golf Pro and Business Development Manager from, another PGA-affiliated organisation, is currently in Spain with a group of golfers and using Techniblock.   "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 by the pharmaceutical company Technikon, in their world class laboratory and Managing Director, Rob Verseput, is a keen golfer.  Techniblock® sunscreen is sold in many South African golf clubs and is now being introduced to UK golf clubs through The PGA. Techniblock UK owners Tracey and David Parry hope to see it on the counter in pro golf shops by the spring.
Currently only available online at and Amazon, this is the first step into bricks and mortar retail for the UK-based company.  If you are interested in becoming a stockist or a distributor, please contact Techniblock® on 07769 943200 or email to find out more.
