HI,

Between this two I'd choose option 2 - Titleist Small Wheeled Travel Cover

It's lighter (3 lbs), which could helps a bit to avoid extra charges at airlines and it looks less bulky. Also, it's cheaper (although that's not a main issue when you're looking for good stuff).

I'm choosing a new bag currently and also looking into travel cases as well. Put my eyes onto SKB's travel cases, like this one: http://www.golfsmith.com/product/30033781/skb-deluxe-staff-travel-case

I'm relatively a noob when it comes to golf and golf travel. I've traveled once w my clubs (but have a trip planned next month, and plan on bringing my clubs w me whenever I travel in the future). Before my trip I was debating on what to buy. Hard cover vs soft cover, cheap vs more expensive etc etc. I bit the bullet and went w a club glove. I had a coupon code for a free stiff arm also, which helped a tad w the cost. I think I ordered through them directly. My clubs got to and from my destination without a scratch. As many will tell you, this bag will last ten years and has a warranty (don't know the details off the top of my head). If you by cheaper most likely you'll end up replacing your clubs due to damage or the bag due to wear and tear. I like the club glove since it gives me confidence knowing my clubs will be safe. Just my two cents. Ps since club glove is such a good product, I could probably put this bag on craigslist and make up the difference between it and a cheaper bag. I think spending more is worth it in this case

Oh and one last thing, especially for the poster above me...many complain about the bulk w hard cases. On my one and only trip w my clubs, I'm lucky I didn't have a hard case. Back seats were occupied so couldn't throw my clubs in there. Trunk was so small. Luckily my club glove could fold up, clubs go in the trunk, and I pack the bag when I get to the airport.

I use a Club Glove travel bag and am a huge fan.  Not familiar with the small wheeled travel cover.

My choice would be 100% driven by which one provides the best protection for my clubs.

Hi,

Thanks for consideration about bulkiness of hard cases. Haven't seen many though but that's a good point. My LR have a plenty of room in a trunk but can't say the same about cars I've rented while travelling. I will rethink my travel bags strategy.

    • Lowest score you've seen?
      Lowest ive ever witnessed is 71 twice by me.Thats saying something considering I play in tournys with very good players.My 71s were not in tourny conditions though.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      But because they play on courses that are considered quite difficult compared to the average home course, wouldn't their up & down % be expected to increase due to having closer misses on average - particularly with slower greens to hold approaches? The comment above is not to discount this, but only emphasize how the two go together. If you apply a fantastic long game on a shorter course on average they will have an easier time being more consistent and hitting the ball closer to the pin on average and therefore making more putts. Or do you think they would have the same expected proximity on one of our home courses as they would on the tougher tour courses and setups? I get you on the tournament prep being very different to hitting a course blind, but to some extent the OP is comparing how we play on our home courses day-in, day-out vs. the tour pros moving from place to place. How would we score visiting a course blind relative to our home course where most of the scores are posted and we are very familiar with the layout and greens. Granted pros make it a point to know this stuff with yardage books and memory. Still switching between venues and conditions rather suddenly vs. gradual changes we would tend to experience on a home course must add some difficulty. I came across a good study that analyzed all PGA tournament scores for 2007 including field average adjustments. He had the unadjusted scoring average that year as 70.704. If you figure the average course setup is ~ CR 75 and add one stroke for 'tournament conditions' (and added difficulty of Major setups) then that was about 5.3 strokes below average rating. So relative to a Course Rating (slope should not matter to a pro), and assuming a standard normal distribution, 95% of the scores should range between -6.7 and -3.9 below the rating. However, his analysis detected two interesting features, the curve (with a ton of samples) is approximately symmetric with a ~ .4 skewness. This right skew means the most frequently expected result (the mode) is actually slightly lower than the mean. So that implies that even on tour setups the lower than average scores are expected just a bit more frequently (the left tail and shoulder are slightly thicker and probability for scores lower than the mode slightly higher.). Here's an approximation of what the distribution would look like relative to strokes below the CR. In comparing courses with higher average scores (like the U.S. Open) the study found that the standard deviation of scores increased. The 'tougher test' created more of a separation between the players. Also the players whose scores tended to skew left were poorer players on average in terms of results. They averaged a relatively high score, but they could go really low sometimes. The relevance this has to the thread is that on the easier home courses that most of us tend to play, the tour players would be more bunched in their expected scores with higher probabilities around the mean of -5.3 relative to the CR and possibly more toward the low side with the left-skewing, less-consistent scorers reducing the size of the right tail and extending the left while holding the 'field average' the same. It could skew the distribution toward lower expected score (though the most frequently expected value would still be around the mode). But what would you expect as a total spread for the average scratch population? You agree that with the average population of golfers by handicap there's a decrease in score variability with increasing skill versus the average population at each handicap level having the same average scoring distribution, yes? IMO, the answer to the OP greatly depends on the CR. On my course from the tips, they'd be expected to shoot under 65 over 50% of the time. On a CR of 72, I'd expect  below 67 over 50% of the time. At Oakmont (in non-Open setup), under 73 over 50% of the time. And that would be without accounting for a possible 'going low' effect from the typically easier home course setups we face (not including Oakmont there. They would face some hazards you don't find on tour either - lost balls could be an issue for some. I'm not sure I agree that they'd expect to putt worse due to slower stimps. At the least because I would expect their proximity to the hole to increase on all shots due to the typically shorter length (shorter irons on average into each hole) along with relatively slower, softer greens.
    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      Played 9 holes today and started out pretty good (for me) w/ 5 bogies in a row, then doubled the last four. Still, not a bad round.  
    • Anyone Else Use 'Good Shots' to Measure How Good a Round Was?
      This is what I do as well.  If I play a poor round then there are a lot of these, so I don't really dwell too much, but if I played a good round, then it frequently boiled down to a couple of really good to great shots, a whole bunch of manageable ones, and a couple awful ones.  The awful ones are the ones I feel should be entirely avoidable, so those are the ones I try and recount later and assess what went wrong.
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      I have been working with an Evolvr coach for a while and he has not addressed those concerns at a2 and in fact called my position a perfect example and something he would show to other students.  So your instructions do not match up for me.   It is frustrating to hear you make comments like that when they don't match up with what my coach says.   I still don't get why it matters if it goes from shallow to slightly steeper on the downswing.   Look at Furyks swing, is he hitting all the key positions?  If I hit A5 to A6 why does A3 matter anymore? If Robert Rock had the same angle at 5 as he does at 3 he would miss the ball too..  What is the difference in steep to shallow?  OR shallow to steep, but still outside the ball?
