Sun Mountain has just released a statement about the rain-wear problems from earlier Friday morning, in which everybody and their caddy criticized the company's rain gear:
Sun Mountain has been designing and selling outerwear for more than two decades. We have provided rainwear to 3,000-plus PGA of America Professionals and over 150 tour players, and supplied outerwear to numerous U.S. teams, including the Walker Cup and the 2000 and 2009 Presidents Cup teams. Sun Mountain has staff on the ground at the Ryder Cup working in conjunction with the PGA of America on this issue.
Hm. Not exactly a mea culpa, but then you wouldn't expect that quite yet. Clearly, though, this story isn't done yet. And if the United States should lose, expect it to flare far hotter.
