It’s YOUR bag, and if you want whatever on it , your name , your kids name, etc that’s your choice ..I have all of the above on mine. I’m not a pro , I’m just a regular guy who loves my little girl and likes my own name on the bag I bought. Simple.

So you're telling me its not weird for me to be using my high school team bag as a 24 year old?? My ping hoofer is a tank.  It's even been run over by a cart and it's still going strong.
Hell no--- Dig this--- I am 61 years old and I am carrying a Ping Hoofer that from what I can tell is one of the original ones--- It is blue and white has a school logo "W" on the ball pocket and "Eagles" on the side. Do not have any idea what school it is if it is high school or college--- I got it at Good Will about a month ago for $9.95 and it is in pristine shape. Legs work great and all the zippers do too--- No one has asked me about the "Eagles" yet but then again most of the locals around here know me and know I have a bunch of bags and stuff and the tourons are either too drunk or stupid to notice. Hey it fits my needs and that is what counts

OP - I do not see anything wrong with one having their name or logo on any type of bag. Hey it is a free country and golf is an individual sport so do what makes you happy

Publications like GD have been writing articles in support of growing the game for years AND then they turn around and write some BS piece, that is complete snobbery, by shaming non-elite golfers by telling them that getting your name stitched on your bag is some sort of unwritten golf etiquette faux pas or something... I played for a small NAIA university way back when and I still have my bags. At 36 I donít see it any different than folks who have retail bags that proudly display their alma maters or favorite professional organizations/teams.

In a game where individual club fittings and customized equipment is advertised and encouraged I donít see why personalizing bags, or other accessories for that matter, are a big deal.

Correct all the way around--- That last paragraph you wrote says it all--- The whole deal in a nutshell is called flip flopping or to really be strong hypocrisy. IMHO one having their name on their bag is no different than someone having say a Green Bay Packers or NY Giants themed bag. Hey whatever floats one's boat

Well they may not be the most "correct" military branch of the DOD but dammed if they can't drop some nasty mess from high and far away places while not being seen :taunt:

I read the article and the whole thing came off as superficial clickbait.  As to the question, I'd probably feel like a tool taking a staff bag with tour/pro-style name lettering on it, but I'd probably feel like a tool with any staff bag on course... but I used to have a staff bag holding my backups as display in my office, and that'd be a pretty sweet place to have one with the name lettering and my company logo (and maybe bust it out for work-related scrambles and the like).

Lots of people do that very thing especially if they own the company--- Bust out the staff bag with the lettering for company related scrambles or business related golf--- IMHO nothing wrong with that either

I'm with you Stu, I did the same thing as you. Found a nice HS / College PING Hoofer bag at the local GW for $7 bucks. Has a school name on one side and a players name on the other. But now when I use it I have to wear my wife's cut offs and a wig, cause the name on it was Linda S. I can hit from the ladies tees though, so that's a plus............. :rofl:
