Breaking the numbers down, Sun Mountain has a 20.4% share of sales at on-course shops and 14.7% at off-course golf specialty stores. The report showed that on the whole, golf bag sales were down 1.67% in 2010 compared to 2009, while Sun Mountain's share of sales increased by 0.7%.

The Golf Datatech retail golf market share program provides timely and accurate data on market share, unit sales, dollar sales, inventories and distribution.

In addition to golf bags, Sun Mountain is dedicated to finding the most innovative fabrics, the latest manufacturing processes, and the best designs to create a line of performance outerwear that protects from rain, wind and cold. For over 25 years, Sun Mountain has been designing and manufacturing functional, high-quality, lightweight golf bags for the serious golfer. Sun Mountain is responsible for many industry firsts, including being the first to use backpacking technology to produce a lightweight nylon golf bag, and being the first to develop a stand bag with integral legs.
