UPLAND, CA (June 29, 2016) — SCNS Sports Foods, maker of the popular 1st Tee™ and 10th Tee™ nutrition and energy bars, has signed as a sponsor of PGA TOUR professional Scott Langley. As part of the agreement, Langley’s PGA Tour bag will carry the company’s 1st Tee nutrition bar logo.
“I love the SCNS products, and am very happy to be part of the team,” said Langley, a 27-year-old University of Illinois graduate. “I have been eating the 1st Tee and 10th Tee bars for quite a while now. They really deliver what they advertise. They help provide the focus and energy you need to perform your best, and they taste great. “
Langley earned his PGA TOUR card for the 2013 season, becoming the first alum of the First Tee program to earn PGA TOUR Membership. He made 19 of 29 cuts that season and advanced to the second round of the FedExCup playoffs. He has two top 10 and 19 top 25 finishes in 107 starts during his career, earning over $2.7 million.
“We are proud to be associated with Scott,” said SCNS founder and COO Bill Stewart. “We share a strong commitment to supporting The First Tee. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
SCNS Sports Foods, which launched in 2007, has seven different types of nutrition and energy bars. 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 right 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 Stewart. “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.
