    I love the idea of tour players (and their caddies) carrying “everyman” bags. Staff bags are fun advertisements, but they are missing a huge swath of the market they are courting by not showcasing their carry lines on the tournament circuit. I saw Ernie Els’ caddie carrying a stand bag at Crooked Stick for the BMW Championship and it just made so much more sense when I looked at it…and as it stood on its own [legs], I could see the adverts and the make of the bag clearly. The big brands democratize every other part of their lines (clubs, balls, clothes, etc…), but the big miss is the bags. Heck – I wouldn’t even mind seeing ClicGear in the mix out there. I know traditionalists would throw a fit, but the pushers make as much sense as the double strap on a bag (I tried my first backpack strapped bag while playing in college 25 years ago and it was an epiphany…saved my back too). I’m glad to see this might be a thing.

    I had the Players 2017/18 model and was always wondering if the straps will hold up over the years. Eventually sold it and moved to a Stuff bag. I see they have new strap buckles which makes me think the old system did not hold up

Forum Thread of the Day: “One driver for the rest of your life – what would it be?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from DCMorgan89 who asks an intriguing question – if you could only play one driver for the rest of your life, what would it be? Our members weigh in with their choices, with plenty of different drivers receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JDMRN81: “G400 Max with an AD TP shaft and it’s not even close! Incredibly forgiving, low spin with a laser mid-flight.”
  • Valtiel: “I’m someone who rarely changes drivers. Several years ago it would have been a 910D3 as well, and I still plan on building up another one sometime soon. I’m hoping it will be the Mizuno ST190, but we’ll see!”
  • LONGBALL777: “Callaway Big Berta Fusion. Straightest driver ever!”
  • regiwstruk: “ST190. Just has it all.”

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Published

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
