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.
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 Golfbreaks.com
, 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.
