SEATTLE (Jan. 12, 2015) — Cutter & Buck, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has long been known for exquisite quality, modern design and high-performance styles. For Fall 2015, the company has created a versatile men’s collection that works from the golf course to the boardroom, and transitions easily from summer into cooler weather. In addition, Cutter & Buck, as part of its licensing partnerships with the NFL, NCAA and MLB, will be introducing a wide variety of fashion-forward items with fan-ready details.
“We have a look for every occasion,” said Jake Rawson, Global Director of Sales - Golf. “We’ll be unveiling athletic designs, course-ready pieces, and sporty styles. They go from bold black and white pieces, with subtle heather grey contrasts and pops of vibrant color, to technology-inspired hues and regal color palettes.”
Building on the success of last season’s Aquapel™ pieces — featuring next-generation water repellent that provides advanced, unmatched protection from the elements — the Fall ’15 men’s collection introduces several new items:
Cutter & Buck has several new pieces in its men’s Outerwear Collection for Fall ’15 that are sure to be comfortable on or off the course. The CB WeatherTec™ Summit family of windwear – lightweight shirts, jackets and pants – is a tried-and-true favorite to layer up or down depending on the weather.
Available in both short-sleeve and long-sleeve, the Summit jackets will keep wearers shielded from the elements. These fully-lined, wind and waterproof jackets boast a hidden zipper, droptail hem with drawcord, front pocket and Velcro tab closures at the sleeve hem. Besides being highly functional, the eye-appealing body colors with contrasting colorblock along the shoulder make this style one that stands out on those gray days. The fully‐lined Summit Pant, meanwhile, features an elastic‐back waistband with adjustable tabs, zippered pass-thru pockets, and breathable, waterproof fabric, all in a streamlined modern fit.
Rounding out the Fall ’15 men’s collection is the CB WeatherTec™ Owen Half Zip and long-sleeve CB WindTec™ Momentum Full Zip. They are available in a woven fabric that is resistant to both water and wind. Versatile enough to wear inside the stadium, classroom, or wherever the day takes you, Cutter & Buck will be unveiling new styles as part of its licensing partnerships with the NFL, NCAA and MLB. The CB DryTec™ Foss Hybrid Polo is a moisture wicking, 100 percent polyester jersey with interlock fabrication that complements the ventilating mesh piecing at the side panels, back yoke, and forward shoulders.
Another alternative to show one’s team pride is the CB DryTec™ Topspin Half Zip – a 92 percent, 8 percent spandex brushed jersey fabric that provides warmth while maintaining its shape. With chin guard and exposed zipper, the half zip offers UV protection of UPF 15+ and features a cool and comfortable feel without sacrificing style.

Currently available at better golf retailers throughout North America, and http://www.bigmaxusa.com, BIG MAX GOLF products showcase smart, functional and durable designs for the walking golfer.

Arccos Golf Signs 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel as Brand Ambassador
PGA Tour Superstar Endorses Golf’s Only GPS + Live Stat Tracking + Tour Analytics System
(STAMFORD, CT) – Arccos Golf, LLC – maker of the first club-to-cloud™ system offering GPS + live stat tracking + Tour analytics – announces the signing of 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel as brand ambassador.
Currently No. 13 on the Official World Golf Ranking, Horschel is one of America’s most popular and recognizable young stars. A three-time winner on the PGA Tour, the 28-year-old uses the ARCCOS™ system during his practice rounds, which will now be showcased across the company’s digital and social media channels. Horschel will also feature prominently in Arccos’ marketing initiatives, including point of sale materials and a series of commercials to air on Golf Channel.
“Using statistics to understand my game has been a real key to my success,” says Horschel. “Arccos is helping me take that knowledge to a whole new level. It’s super easy to use and instantly provides data for every shot I hit during my practice rounds. Post round, it helps me analyze my performance like I’ve never before been able to do.”
Requiring no alterations to pre-shot routines, additional devices, tapping or other hindrances to enjoyment and improvement, ARCCOS ($399) features a set of 14 virtually weightless sensors. Easily attached to the end of a club grip, each is paired just once via Bluetooth to the company’s free iPhone app.
Along with GPS for more than 16,000 courses in North America, ARCCOS captures critical data for your game, instantly delivering information on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and more. This helps golfers identify patterns and refine tactics before, during and after each round.
“Billy’s an Ambassador for Arccos in the truest sense of the word,” says Sal Syed, the company’s CEO and Co-Founder. “He’s using our system and sharing his data week after week for fans, golfers and PGA Professionals to understand how one of the world’s best players prepares to compete.”
Essential to the ARRCOS system is its proprietary Tour Analytics platform developed in conjunction with golf’s most renowned statistician, Peter Sanders. Drawing from Sanders’ work with PGA Tour star Zach Johnson and many others, it automatically breaks down a players’ handicap into five key components – driving, approach, chipping, sand game and putting. This allows players to:
Now available at Apple Stores, select golf retailers and pro shops nationwide, and online at Amazon.com, ARCCOS is more than just a great tool for the individual users. Top instructors rely on the system to help their students recognize and correct faults, such as club distance gaps, noticeable shot dispersion patterns and other problem areas.
Led by a team of Ivy League engineers, rocket scientists, PhD’s and designers, Arccos Golf is named after a function of advanced mathematics.

GolfBuddy - the pioneer of voice golf GPS in Europe - has launched golf’s most versatile and wearable audio unit to date with the sensational new VS4.
For golfers looking for a small, light, easy-to-use golf GPS that can be worn any way they choose on the course, the GolfBuddy VS4 is unrivalled.
It comes supplied with a bespoke designed wrist strap - turning it instantly into a ‘watch’ GPS. The VS4 simply clicks in place, leaving the user to either view distances on screen or press the facia button to hear it talk!
It also comes supplied with a hard clip-on case, which means the VS4 can be attached easily to a belt, shirt pocket or cap.
And in a new development, two additional accessories are available which make the VS4 the most versatile golf GPS there is.
Firstly, a retractable cord and mount (RRP £19.95) is available which allows the golfer to clip the unit to a belt loop, or golf bag karabina and pull it closer whenever they need a distance reading.
And secondly, an innovative flip-up leather case (RRP £15.95) lets the golfer simply lift up the unit to see the screen when it’s clipped to a belt - a big plus for any golfer whose waistline might normally hinder sight of the unit! (GolfBuddy VS4 has a flip-screen mode which turns the display 180 degrees to make the most of the new leather case).
Some of the key GolfBuddy VS4 technical specifications include:
- Visual and Audio distances given
- Dynamic Green ViewTM with green shape display
- Large numbers only display
- Shot Distance Measurement
- Auto Course & Hole Recognition
- Distances to Front, Middle, Back
- Mute button
- Yards/Metres selection
- Manual hole change option
- Preloaded with free courses & no annual fees
- White/Gold or Black/Red colour choices
Dynamic Green View™ technology always shows front, middle and back distances directly from the golfer’s angle of approach, however wayward they might have been!
And this ensures that GolfBuddy distances are more accurate than those brands that only display static front, middle and back of the green distances in a line from the centre of the fairway.
The company’s accuracy is unrivalled. Around the world, GolfBuddy uses teams of expert mappers to walk courses and create ground-verified data maps that give supreme accuracy.
This dedication to accuracy gives golfers the most reliable distance readings available. GolfBuddy is one of only two brands that commit to mapping courses on foot.
And as with all GolfBuddy products, there are no expensive annual membership fees and no hidden costs to download courses or access premium features - which can cost up to £45 a year extra with other brands.
The VS4 is ready to go right out of the box with access to over 8,000 courses in Europe and North Africa and over 37,000 globally in more than 130 countries. GolfBuddy VS4 has an RRP of £159.95.
GolfBuddy is based in La Palma, Ca, with product development and course data management centres in Korea, one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality electronic products.
GolfBuddy is a Corporate Partner with the PGAs of Europe as its ‘official handheld GPS rangefinder’.
