We are thrilled to be named the best golf umbrella in 2018 by MyGolfSpy for the second year running! Coming 1st with the 68″ golf umbrella and 3rd with the 62″ golf umbrella.

MyGolfSpy independently test golf hardware for a readership of over 35 million. To find the best golf umbrella on the market they had a stringent testing criteria; handle, coverage, opening speed, durability and features. They tested 24 different golf umbrellas for over 10 hours.

GustBuster golf umbrella performed well on wind resistance, coming 1st (of course!!) and durability, coming 2nd. The 68″ model came 2nd on coverage giving it the edge to come 1st overall.

In the words of MyGolfSpy…

The Gustbuster has been crowned “Best Umbrella of 2018” for the second year in a row. The 68-inch canopy is built to handle the toughest of on-course conditions. Although the Gustbuster is fully manual, it opens efficiently. Durability is again the Gustbusters strength as it can withstand winds of more than 55mph. The innovative bungee cord venting system that connects the canopies allows air to pass through the umbrella effectively and without damage.

The GustBuster windproof golf umbrella is stated to be unflippable, unflappable and unleakable. These are some hefty claims for an umbrella, however they are completely justified, tried and tested. The superior design and high quality components mean it has won MYGOLFSPY best golf umbrella in 2017 and 2018. So you can be assured that the GustBuster windproof umbrella is a great investment.

The GustBuster golf umbrella is unflippable

The GustBuster golf umbrella has been tested by the US College of Aeronautics to withstand winds of up to 55mph. This is due to the double canopy layering and the innovative teardrop shaped wind-release vents. The elastic shock-cord uses the patented wind pressure release expansion cord system, which works with the wind to avoid any annoying flipping inside out when you need your umbrella the most.

The GustBuster golf umbrella is unflappable

Your GustBuster golf umbrella has been made with a sturdy and lightweight design. The fibreglass shaft ensures that the umbrella is lightweight and strong. The shaft & runner have exclusive Memory Rod® Construction so it won’t crimp, rust or bend out of shape. The Proprietary Flexor Ribs™ sit in the canopy and spring back to their original shape. The protective ferrule is injection-molded and so can withstand high impacts and is designed to fit into the smallest of golf bags.

The GustBuster golf umbrella is unleakable

The GustBuster golf umbrella canopy is made from the highest quality 190 thread count nylon. This will ensure that you do not get wet! It also means that it is bleed and fade proof so your GustBuster golf umbrella will remain in tip top condition.

GustBuster windproof umbrellas

The best thing about the GustBuster golf umbrella technology is that it is used across the entire GustBuster range. So if you prefer the nifty Metro umbrella or the stylish Classic umbrella you will still get the unflippable, unflappable and unleakable technology. Why not take a look at the SunBLOK umbrella with added UVA and UVB filters. View the entire range here.

2014 Ryder Cup weather forecast

The 2014 Ryder Cup is set at the extremely beautiful Gleneagles course in Scotland this year. Who will reign supreme, Team Europe or Team USA? Will team Europe win the Cup for the fourth year in a row or will Team USA wrangle it back. Whoever it is we are definitely set for some exciting Golf this weekend. It will certainly be well watched with over half a billion homes tuning in to watch the action.

If you are one of the lucky 45,000 spectators attending the event the weather according to the Met Office looks like it is going to be mostly kind with the forecast looking mainly dry and a little windy. However there is some wind and rain forecast over the weekend so be prepared as it is likely to be changeable.

No flipping inside out! Meaning you stay dry and sheltered to watch and enjoy the golf.

Good luck to all the Golfers in both teams and let’s hope that the weekend unveils some nail-biting action and some world-class golf.
