The Greatest Invention in Golf: The Golf Cooler Bag
Is this, the Callaway Golf bag with cooler pocket from Spring Mill Country Club, the greatest invention in golf history?
Absolutely not, but it's pretty awesome. I won this bag in a tournament last week and have been itching to write about it since then. I have heard about it and saw it online, but I never thought I would one day have one.
The main reason I never thought I would have this bag is because it's a cart bag. If you have read my previous posts, I walk frequently and I need a bag to make that as easy as possible. This bag has the one shoulder strap and no "legs" to keep it standing upright when it is set down. If on a flat surface (like my living room floor in the picture above) it can stand just fine. It's perfect for a cart.
The bag has 5 pockets that zip including the cooler and a few smaller pockets not protected by zippers. It has a place to hold your umbrella (something I think all bags should have), slots to hold six tees and one ring to hold a towel or whatever else you want to add to it.
The part that holds the clubs is interesting. This particular bag has 14 slots, one for each club. This might help a few guys who have played in events with that one extra club and had to give back strokes (playing with extra clubs is a 2-stroke penalty per hole). I'm torn on the setup but maybe it's because I've never had it. My bag, and previous bags, have had 6-8 slots for all the clubs. I then arrange them accordingly.Continued on the next page
