1st Tee™ and 10th Tee™ Energy Bars
World Am golfers are always looking for a boost and the perfect energy bar, so SCNS Sports’ nutrition and energy bars are a nice addition to the exhibitor section for 2016. There are seven different types of nutrition and energy bars on display that golfers can sample. The original 1st Tee bar comes in two different flavors: oatmeal raisin and chocolate peanut, and contain all-natural chamomile, hops and valerian root to help reduce anxiety on the first tee. Most recent additions to the 1st Tee line are two gluten-free bars: Dark Chocolate Chip Trail Mix bar and Honey Almond Snack bar.
There are three flavors of the 10th Tee bar, two of which contain green tea and panax ginseng extracts to help sustain energy through the back nine. Those flavors are Peanut Honey and Chocolate Peanut Caramel.
“We created the 10th Tee bars to look and taste like a candy bar, because a lot of golfers like to grab a candy bar at the turn,” said Bill Stewart, Chief Operating Officer at SCNS Sports Foods. “But our bars contain half the fat and twice the protein of most candy bars. So while you will get the same enjoyment as you would eating a traditional candy bar, you also will gain the energy-sustaining benefit for the back nine from our 10th Tee bars.” Earlier this year the company launched a gluten free 10th Tee Cranberry Trail Mix bar.

Based on USGA Rule 12-2 that states all golfers must be able to “identify their ball” during play, Tin Cup believed there was a need to create something unique as a way to personalize each players golf ball. There is no better way to mark your ball than Tin Cup. It is a stainless steel ball marker that is guaranteed for life and was voted one of the best new overall products at the 2010 PGA Merchandise Show. Since then, Tin Cup has quickly gained industry and consumer recognition for its innovation and design. Tin Cup is constantly coming out with new designs. They now have three different American Flag designs and recently added the University of Alabama and Michigan State logos to their offerings.
Tin Cup sells product online, at retail stores, in pro shops all over the country and at the 19th Hole.
