(Monterey Park, CA) – Fore!! Axel & Hudson – the award-winning, golf-inspired children’s apparel brand – announces it has partnered with The PGA of America to launch PGA Authentic Junior by Fore!! Axel & Hudson, a golf-inspired collection for boys and girls available starting this spring at department stores and premier boutiques nationwide.
Showing at ENK Children’s Club, March 10-12 at the Javits Center in New York City (Booth #9109), PGA Authentic Junior includes a balance of classic and fashion-forward clothes, accessories and headwear. Capturing Fore!! Axel and Hudson’s Southern California roots and the PGA’s pride and passion for the game, the designs feature eye-catching details and luxurious, eco-friendly fabrics. Retailing from $34 to 101, items are available in sizes 2T to 12.
“The inaugural collection draws upon the rich history of golf for inspiration and combines that with the on-trend looks, silhouettes and small touches that make our clothes so distinctive,” says Paul Nguyen, Fore!! Axel & Hudson Co-Owner and Creative Director. “It’s been an exciting and natural partnership to collaborate with such an iconic organization. We’re hoping PGA Authentic Junior by Fore!! Axel and Hudson will truly change the landscape of children’s fashion in the world of golf on and off the course.”
Turner Broadcasting’s Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) – the licensing and merchandising arm for the children’s television network – brokered the deal between the two companies in its role as the youth licensing agent for The PGA of America. Partners since 2009, CNE is charged with creating a line of consumer products that appeal to the sport’s youngest fans and also creates a broader and more accessible entry point to the sport. The licensing deal is one part of a larger, long-standing relationship that exists between Turner Sports and The PGA and will continue through 2019, as the two companies previously extended their broadcasting and interactive media agreements, covering the PGA Championship, PGA Grand Slam of Golf and PGA.com.

GLENMUIR MACWET GLOVES – ALL GRIP, NO SLIP
Glenmuir’s Macwet gloves are widely regarded throughout the game as the finest wet-weather golf gloves ever made – and for 2013 they come in a range of styles and colours.
Following the wettest summer for decades – and this spring almost guaranteed to bring more rain – owning reliable and purpose-made golf gloves has never been more important to the golfer.
The original Micromesh Glenmuir Golf Glove is now available in two lengths (short cuff and long cuff) with each design boasting six colours (white, white/black, black, navy. green and brown).
The gloves have been developed for warmer-weather use and are designed specifically to aid airflow around the hand and use the unique Aquatec® fabric, which boasts unbeatable moisture-wicking properties.
The fabric responds to moisture and climate change, allowing any water to be readily transported around and over the gloves’ surface to the fabric face from where it evaporates. This always provides the optimum amount of comfort and grip, whether hands are sweating from heat or made wet from spring rain.
The Glenmuir Golf Gloves (RRP £26-£28) come as a pair in a wide range of fittings (from Ladies Small (size 6),to Men’s XL (size 10)), with a snug fit recommended to maximise the benefits of improved grip and to ensure the best contact between hand, glove and club.
The key performance benefits are most noticeable any time the golfer’s hands are wet, either through weather or perspiration. In bad weather, the gloves help golfers keep their grip secure – while in drier weather many players opt to use just one glove to counter sweating palms.
The MacWet® Gloves’ gripping abilities can even be improved in the dry by dampening the gloves on the tee – by either sprinkling water on the palms or using a wet towel. The gloves will dry out again on the walk from the tee.
The gloves – which comply with R&A rules – stretch very slightly when worn initially, but then maintain a consistent fit. They can be hand or machine washed up to 40° C and retain their shape well when allowed to dry naturally.
MacWet gloves are synonymous with delivering incredible performance in the rain in many outdoor sports and pursuits (over 90% of Grand National jockeys regularly opt for the brand) and Glenmuir’s MacWet golf gloves are among the very best in the world.

Tuesday, March 5: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1® with 4G LTE will be available online and in stores starting Thursday, March 7 for $599.99. Users can add this tablet to their Share Everything account for $10 per month.
For many people tablets are great for Web browsing, downloading movies, gaming, and much more. But, actions including note taking, photo editing and multitasking have proved challenging for some.
Following a trend started with the Galaxy Note II, the Galaxy Note 10.1® features the advanced S Pen™ stylus. Business professionals can take notes during meetings with handwriting-to-text capabilities, and drawing tools to jot down plans. Notes can be saved and shared over 4G LTE with coworkers and clients.
What makes this tablet different are a couple of features. The first advantage is that it is on the Verizon 4G LTE network. Other features include those found on the Galaxy Note II smartphone. It has a split screen feature that lets you have two apps open at once on the screen. So for example, you can have the browser open with an article you’re reading and your email app to compose or read emails.
For photo editing, the Galaxy Note 10.1® runs Adobe® Photoshop® Touch. Combined with the S Pen™, building visual effects, such as layering, blending and filters, can be used by designers to show drafts or mock-ups to potential clients. Users can combine and manipulate images creatively with the S Pen™, then upload work to the cloud using 4G LTE to access their portfolio just about anywhere.
Watching television with a second screen has become second nature for many. For TV fans, the Galaxy Note 10.1® features the Smart Remote, powered by Peel, to turn the tablet into a universal remote control. The tablet can control an entire home entertainment system and even recommend programs.
