Portland-based Jones Sports Company, who are well known for their single strap golf bags, has announced that their product will be featured in the new reality show, Altered Course

This show is set to premier on the Golf Channel on June 15th at 9pm.

Contestants on this show will shoulder Jones Stand bags as they race against the clock, obstacles and various golf hole layouts. This is a tournament style competition. 

Jones first released the Jones Stand Bag in the early 1980s, which made it one of the first stand bags on the market. Recently, they reintroduced their product with the trafitional design combined with modern day materials.

The Jones Stand Bag have been highly popular amongst the golfing community because they are relatively lightweight, which makes them perfect for a fast paced competition. They have also been known to hold up extremely well during the rigors of a golf match.

Unfortunately, this meant that he wasn't able to play in the Civil War, which was perhaps the biggest game of the year for the Beavers. If the Beavers had been able to defeat the Ducks they would've been able to book their tickets to play in the Rose Bowl. Instead, they went to the Sun Bowl where they defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Dec. 2009 — Ruptured right patella tendon and dislocated patella

In December of 2009 the Trail Blazers' backup center, Joel Pryzbilla, was lost for the season with a ruptured and dislocated patella. This was a huge blow to the Trailblazers' frontcourt because they had already lost Oden for the season a few weeks before. Pryzbilla was also the team's defensive anchor who provided an inside presence. "The Vanilla Gorilla" was sorely missed for the rest of the year.

Wesley Matthews

March 2015 — Torn left achilles

Just 2 months before Matthews suffered a torn achilles he had become the Trailblazers' all-time leader in 3-point field goals made. It looked as though the Trailblazers were poised to make a deep playoff run. Things took a drastic turn when Matthews was lost for the season. With the team in a 0-2 hole against the Memphis Grizzlies it doesn't look as though they will be making it to the second round of the playoffs this year.
