Bag Boy Unveils New Cart Bag with Clip-Lok

The Bag Boy Company just announced their new XLT-15 cart bag which features the Clip-Lok system to hold clubs firmly in place and prevent unnecessary noise and club damage during the round.

The Clip-Loks are designed to eliminate club contact by holding the shaft of the club securely in place until the club is ready to be used. The Clip-Lok system is easy to operate, simply snap the shaft into the lock.  There are 15 individual Clip-Loks integrated into the bag’s 11-way organizer top.

The 420D nylon, 10-inch cart bag comes with individual full length dividers and an external putter well with a putter Clip-Lok. There are eight easily accessible pockets on the bag for plenty of storage, including a large insulated cooler pocket and a fleece lined pocket to protect valuables. This lightweight cart bag weighs only 7 pounds.

The XLT-15 cart bag weighs seven pounds and is offered in seven color combinations – red/black, yellow/black, lime green/black, navy/silver, black, pink/charcoal/white and aqua blue/silver/white. It is available in golf shops and golf specialty retailers for a suggested retail of $159.95.

Nike Steps Up to Sponsor Tiger Woods’ Bag at The Masters

Move on over, Frank. Nike is Coming in.

We had a little fun a few days ago speculating what sponsor’s logo would appear on Tiger Woods’ bag when he returned at The Masters. My gut told me that Nike would probably be the brand of choice… and when you consider how Nike has stuck side-by-side with Woods through his recent trials and tribulations, it seemed to be the most reasonable choice.

Sure enough, late last week word came out that Tiger’s own ‘TW’ Nike brand will be emblazoned on the bag. The brand will be front and center, so expect to see the ‘TW’ logo along with a handful of Nike swooshes adorning the equipment of the world’s #1.

If you take a look back through the years, the change to Nike will make it 4 logos to adorn Tiger’s bag. Back in 1996, Tiger started out with Titleist. From there he moved on to Buick, in a deal that lasted quite a long time until 2008 when GM filed for bankruptcy. Over the past year or so the AT&T logo had been found on-the-bag, until Tiger’s recent ‘indiscretions’.

Should be cool to see what the new Nike bag looks like. Any ideas?

Davis Love III Shows Off His Custom Scotty Cameron ‘Stealth’ Carry Bag

Oh it’s just so not fair. Why do all of the major-winning, straight-hitting, putt-sinking professionals get all the good schwag? 🙂 The other day I happened to notice the bag you see above in Davis Love III’s twitter feed. A custom Scotty Cameron ‘Stealth’ bag. Fantastic. I’ll take two!

Big tip of the cap to the folks at Scotty Cameron for putting together the bag, and another tip of the cap to Davis for sharing it with his followers. I know almost EVERYONE out there would want this bag over their shoulder… or better yet, their caddy’s shoulder 🙂
