Sweden's GolfPunk Magazine Ranks OGIO #3 in a List of 50 Game-Changing Power Players
BLUFFDALE, Utah (April 20, 2009) - Titleist. Annika. St. Andrews. All tremendous icons the golf world. And according to Sweden's GolfPunk Magazine, all trumped by Utah-based OGIO as the game's most powerful influencers on the sport. In its ranking of the game's leading players, OGIO ranked third - bested only by the category of "Swedish Fashion Brands," and by Tiger Woods himself.

"It's time to admit something. We at GolfPunk like a MAN's bag and we're not afraid to say it," the article began. "We tip our hats to OGIO for being the first to offer sleek, sharp looking golf bags. After making packs for everyone from snowboarders to motorcycle riders, they entered the golf market with a brilliant vision of how to improve it. We love the styling and graphics on Ogio bags, but it's more than the looks that impress us. It is the functional and innovative design. It is the smoothness of their zippers, the zipperless ball pocket, the perfect place for water bottles, that make us fall head over heels for these bags."

The magazine's annual ranking listed other names that go hand-in-hand with American golf, including "Happy Gilmore"(#50), Wii Golf (#45), the Titlest ProV1 (#10); square drivers (#6) and Annika Sorenstam (#4).

"We've always said we're huge in Europe!" said OGIO CEO and Founder Michael Pratt. "Seriously, though, this is an incredible honor. A great deal of our success - even in this challenging economy - been driven by our international growth. In recent years, we've focused more on our distributors overseas and we've adapted styles and function for modern European golfers - all of which have benefited our US base in the process."

OGIO currently has distributors in 45 countries internationally, and is rapidly becoming the leading seller of golf bags in the U.S.
