(TORONTO) – Dunning – maker of classic, premium-quality men’s sportswear – announces that staff player John Rollins won the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open this past weekend while competing in the brand’s complete playing system at Montreux Golf and Country Club.
Rollins’ distinctive prep attire included Dunning’s Interface Stretch Highbury Polo, Stretch Performance Pant and Tour Classic leather belt. This combination ensured he looked great while remaining cool and comfortable en route to this third career PGA Tour victory.
“John continues to solidify his position as one of the most consistent players on Tour,” says company Founder Ralph Dunning. “He’s in the best shape of his career and appears primed to close out the season in strong form.”
The 34-year-old native of Richmond, VA, went into the weekend with a sizable lead thanks to his course-record 62 in the second round. Finishing the tournament with 17-under 271 total, Rollins advances to 20th in the FedExCup standings.
“We’re out here to win, out here to play the best we can and finish as high as we can,” says Rollins. “We’ve got a big week next week at the PGA. You never know what will happen. Hopefully I can continue the good play there and have a chance come Sunday afternoon on the back nine to hoist another trophy.”
Showcasing proprietary technical fabrics as well as rich cottons, classic tailoring, traditional colors and a consistently elegant hand, Dunning is also worn in competition by many of the world’s best golfers, including Kyle Stanley, John Senden and 2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson. The brand’s performance pieces include game-enhancing characteristics such as increased airflow, unmatched breathability, moisture wicking, odor resistance and UV protection. Engineered into the textile, these features are guaranteed not to wear- or wash-out for the life of the garment.
Dunning’s Fall 2009 collection retails from $79-$250, with compression undergarments starting at $39. The line is available online at www.dunningsportswear.com, as well as at marquee clubs and resorts throughout North America, world class merchandisers like Bloomingdales and Golf Town, Canada’s premier golf retailer.

Fueled by an authentic country club heritage, Dunning sportswear is built on the premium quality, clean silhouettes and classic prep colors that gentlemen have preferred for generations.
Featuring the richest fabrics and a complete consistency of fit, Dunning garments are born from a family tradition of classic British tailoring combined with nearly two decades on the leading-edge of technical apparel design.
This unique background and unrivalled commitment to producing well-made clothing is expressed in two distinct fabric stories – proprietary performance blends and traditional materials such as luxurious cotton and wool.
Offering pieces in both categories for each season’s collection, Dunning is devoted to crafting truly versatile menswear staples that are ideal for business, casual, athletic and leisure outings.
Dunning was founded by Toronto native and lifelong athlete Ralph Dunning. An IRONMAN competitor and marathoner, Dunning first garnered widespread acclaim in the 1990s for his Rip n’ Hammer line of premium technical clothing for triathletes and cyclists. He also drew praise for work on behalf of some of the world’s largest and most authentic sports brands.
Partnering with only the best mills and manufacturing using ISO 9001 facilities allows Dunning to provide discerning consumers with a complete quality assurance. The company also engineers its technical fabrics from the yarn up, meaning performance is built-in and won’t wash- or wear-out after repeated use.
