  1. Derek / West Seneca, NY 31 per SwingU app Mixed bag: MasterGrip, Copperhead II, Confidence
  2. The cooler pocket a little larger, little bit pleated to hold objects without taking up space in the larger pocket it is attached to, and better insulation to keep the contents from heating up in the sunshine like it's an oven. Otherwise it is a sensational bag. I carry a small cooler bag (blue thing under the push cart handle) with ice block to keep granola bars with chocolate in them, and "sparkling water" cold. Photo also shows a way I found to hang "stuff" from the accessory tabs.
  3. When you come across something to add to the reading list, by all means contribute when you can! Thanks for reading and please share them onward, humor lives in the retelling
  4. A guy on vacation finishes his round, goes into the clubhouse and the head pro says, “Did you have a good time out there?” The man replied, “Fabulous, thank you.” “You’re welcome,” said the pro. “How did you find the greens?” “Easy. I just walked to the end of the fairways and there they were.”
  5. Totally cool stuff at the Goodwill bargain golf outlet as they often get experienced bags and such that miss the roadside supply dealers. If you get a chance to add some photos I would like to see your beauties with their battle scars. New is nice but used has added detail enhancements from doing what it was intended to do, would rather have a vintage functioning piece in hand than something that sparkles mounted on an untouchable display.
  6. Your godson is a keeper! Love that sassy attitude in the young ones, means they are tough inside and ready to learn as much as they can, and they don't crumple when you give them push-back. I'm usually accused of encouraging them lol and best part is you already have a song to work with
  7. Not usually moved by head covers but yours are outstanding, love the shamrocks and the shark head! I created this thread because those who are obsessed with golf as I am care enough to assemble something that means something to them and if given the opportunity to look at it like art, and come on guys, this is guy art don't try to make it like you're not checking out all the thingamies and doodads! This bag rocks!!!
  8. As an Army Combat Engineer who loved everything we got to play with, build and destroy, you know exactly how to turn a phrase to your advantage!
  9. Helpful tip: Push carts come with accessory tabs, those button looking things to hang accessories from. My Clicgear 3.5+ has 3 with only the standard cup holder clipped onto one. Over last winter I got a small top-zipper cooler bag with a couple strap handles and shoulder strap sewn on one end and a clip on the other, perfect size to hang under the handle. What I stumbled on was those inexpensive aluminum D-rings fit on the tabs perfectly. Another D-ring connects the shoulder strap back to the cooler after a loop round the cart frame to stop any swing fore and aft. Unless the bag is lifted it stays in place. Hope this idea helps others to get more out of your equipment.
  10. I've always been a Clicgear 3.5+ guy, the 4.0 is updated with bag straps and the upper bag holding bracket, and an improved carry box on the push handle. Sun Mountain Speed Cart was a close second when I was deciding which to buy (intending to go top quality for intentionally avoiding cheaper carts that might not be robust enough to go the distance).
  11. Very sharp looking set and bag. Nice set of photos to that really shows it all off well from head covers ready to travel to covers off for ready play!
  12. I'm surprised nobody has commented yet. Used equipment has the advantage of proof of product, either it performed well or was less than ideal. The problem is used clubs for sale without an opportunity to hold and swing them, and go through routine and hit them, there is no way to determine if they will perform for the prospective owner. The podcast mentions budget and that is the greatest factor in choosing to buy used with every conversation I have had, and collectors excel at these purchases. Some buy new clubs so others will perceive them as someone of means but in so doing extend themselves, nothing good in my opinion, except for the club making economy of course. I'm in the Americans middle class, living comfortably by economical tightening of spending to afford desired, and I will argue, necessarily things. With 2 in college my fitness is golf and though not well funded my focus on best deals possible keeps me playing, so used clubs fill my bag except for those from deep discounts and prizes. Both new and used work equally well for me, not that I have a golf game to brag about, but I get around the course usually with one ball and enjoy a round with a total score that proves I get more exercise swinging clubs than others do.
  13. The best part of this fine group of people, and I do mean MGS Spies, is learning all about things I did not know before. When I was looking for a new bag a couple years ago I googled Cart Bag Golf and the usual big names populated the screen. I may have seen Vessel but I did not recall it, what I just saw by searching Vessel Golf Bag Miura gives a whole new perspective on what is out there, what good looking bags and clubs!
  14. The MGS tag looks really sharp on a very sharp looking bag.
  15. There was a threesome of men warming up on the first tee at Pebble Beach when a very pretty young woman came up and asked if she could join them in their round. They said they’d be happy to have her join the group and she told them how she had always wanted to play Pebble Beach and what a very special day this was for her. When the round began it quickly became clear that she was quite a good golfer. She hit the ball beautifully and she showed exceptional skill in all aspects of the game. Throughout the round, she told the other members of the group that it had been her life-long dream to play Pebble Beach and to have a great round. She certainly was doing that, and after 17 holes she was at even par for the day. She teed off and hit a terrific drive right down the middle of the fairway. Her second shot landed on the green about four and a half feet from the pin — but it was a very difficult, side-hill lie. She studied her putt for a few moments, then she walked over to where the men were observing. “You know,” she said, “this is a very special day for me. I’ve always wanted to have a great round at Pebble Beach and now I have the chance to be below par on the course. This really means a lot to me, and if any of you can tell me the best way to sink this putt, there's thirty minutes of the best sex you’ve ever had in your life in it for you!” Well, the first man ran over and said, “You know, I had this exact putt about two weeks ago and I can tell you that the best way to putt it is to hit it hard about 5-inches above the cup.” The second man pushed him out of the way and said, “No way! I’ve had this putt many times and I know that the best thing to do is to hit it soft about 10-inches high of the cup.” The third man walked up and said, “Don’t listen to either of them.” He then picked up her ball and handed it to her and said, “That’s a gimme!”
