Last season, “Soul Food,” the popular African American drama series, returned to the SHOWTIME cable channel lineup for its third sensational season.

Beginning with the current season’s third episode, cast members in each of seven consecutive original episodes will wear Urban Golf Gear (UGG), the golf-inspired urban apparel line developed by Oakland, California founder, Craig Tanner.

This year, the original series based on the hit film “Soul Food” was the recipient of three NAACP Awards, including “Outstanding Drama Series,” “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” (Debbie Morgan), and “Outstanding Youth Actor/Actress” (Aaron Meeks).

“To see Urban Golf gear worn on the award winning “Soul Food” series this season is off the hook! Our business partners and many of our loyal customers are avid viewers of this popular show. We’re excited by the widespread exposure this opportunity provides,” noted Tanner.

The fashionable product line has been featured on such shows as The Steve Harvey Show, The Hughley’s, MTV Lyricist Lounge, The Bernie Mac Show, Malcolm and Eddie, and Moesha.

Viewers have also seen UGG apparel in the silver screen comedy, “Two Can Play That Game.” Numerous celebrated actors and sports celebrities like Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Vivica Fox, Omar Epps, Carmen Electra, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Sammy Sosa are regularly spotted wearing Urban Golf Gear.

Founded in 1997 by Craig Tanner, Urban Golf Gear is a golf inspired “lifestyle” apparel line located in Oakland, California. The company’s logo is a Black golfer (“UGGMAN”) with dancing dreadlocks -- effortlessly teeing off.

The UGG line merges the $15 billion hip-hop/urban apparel market with the $5 billion golf apparel market to primarily reach Generations X & Y (15-34) year-olds), who are immersed in the urban lifestyle.

The high-quality, yet affordable Urban Golf Gear and UGG Lifestyle apparel lines include: golf shirts, wind shirt, jackets, vests, bucket hats, caddy ball caps, T-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, baby T’s, halter-tops and spaghetti tanks, all embroidered with the increasingly familiar “UGGMAN” (ugh-man) logo.

UGG clothing is available to consumers via the Internet www.urbangolfgear.com.
