Eight-time PGA Tour Winner Fred Funk Partners with SummaForte™

August 16, 2023

GREAT FALLS, VA /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – SummaForte™ is pleased to announce its partnership with iconic PGA Tour Champion golfer Fred Funk. Funk, an 8-time winner on the PGA Tour, remains one of the most popular players in the game today. He will join the growing list of leaders in sports and sports medicine to join SummaForte’s Advisory Committee.

SummaForte (“top strength” in Latin) is a leading performance and recovery brand gaining popularity among athletes, athletic trainers, sports medicine doctors and others. The company’s doctor-advised products utilize premium CBD, clinically-tested nutrients, and innovative delivery technologies to facilitate peak performance and rapid recovery so people can continue doing what they love most.

Funk, a member of the United States teams at the 2003 and 2005 Presidents Cup and the 2004 Ryder Cup, says SummaForte’s products drastically changed his health regimen. “A few months ago, just before a tournament, my wrist was so sore I thought I wouldn’t be able to play. A PGA athletic trainer had me try SummaTape™ and I played the entire weekend pain free!”

SummaTape™ is a kinesiology tape with CBD and menthol that together help reduce inflammation and pain while also providing musculoskeletal support.

The 67-year-old Funk, who continues to play the Seniors circuit, logging tens of thousands of miles travelling around the country and overseas from tournament to tournament, also had been taking a prescription anti-inflammatory for pain in other parts of his body – similar to many people in their mid-60’s and beyond. By switching to the SummaMix™ powdered drink mix, Funk says, “I have less pain, better focus, and more energy – a great combination for the demanding schedule I’m on. And it tastes great!”

SummaMix comes in individual stick packs that contain CBD, which facilitates sustained, calm energy while fighting inflammation, a clinically-tested lutein for better vision and focus, and a spearmint nootropic that facilitates faster, more accurate reactions.

Sleep is also an issue for athletes like Funk who often have grueling schedules and frequently find themselves in different cities, time zones and hotels. Without good sleep, it’s tough to recover from the grind of multi-day tournaments and the constant travel. Funk had tried a variety of sleep aids with melatonin. He was falling asleep fine, but he could not get back to sleep if he woke up in the night. He also felt groggy in the mornings. With the SummaRest sleep capsule, he says, “I’m falling asleep quickly and waking up fully restored and alert. It’s a game-changer for me.”

SummaForte CEO and Co-Founder, Jeff Thinnes, said: “We could not have a better partner than Fred Funk. Fred’s passion for the game and for his fans – affectionately known as “Funk’s Punks” – has made him a favorite in the golf world. It’s an honor to have Fred join our SummaFam and share his personal experiences with our products.”

Funk joins an impressive roster of leaders in sports and sports medicine on SummaForte’s Advisory Committee. This list includes Dr. Kevin E. Elder, M.D. (Team Physician for US Men’s Soccer and Ski Teams), Kevin Pillifant (Senior Athletic Trainer for the PGA), Dr. Jeremy Maddox, DPT (Senior Physical Therapy Advisor to the New York Yankees and owner of 21 physical therapy clinics), Dr. Peter Grinspoon, M.D. (Harvard Medical School Instructor and Health & Wellness Coach), Dr. Lindsey Migliore, D.O. (leading medical voice in esports) and Dr. Thomas Klein (top orthopedic surgeon with Virginia’s largest orthopedic practice).
