Hi everybody,

I came upon this website while on the hunt for a good quality carry bag,  and decided to join and participate.  I am trying to identify a light weight carry/Sunday bag I purchased at a golf shop years ago in the Ocean City, Maryland area.  I was so impressed by the quality that I bought the last two and have since used them to carry my clubs not only while walking but also riding, and as little as possible in that regard.  This bag easily carries nine to twelve clubs quite efficiently, and weighs no more than one pound on the nose. It's black in color and constructed of some kind of canvas material.  I have since lost the name of the manufacturer, but the bag has the word PLAYERS printed in gold on the bottom larger pocket with a triple capital P right above the word PLAYERS. There is also a smaller pocket on the opposite side and bottom of the bag. Both have zippers.  It has a padded strap and overall very durable.  I know this a long shot, but this is hands down the best dam carry bag I ever owned, and I have owned a bunch through the years.  I would pay premium dollar to purchase a couple of these babies again.  At the time though, I don't think they cost more than 25 bucks a piece.  What a deal!  In any event, if this wild goose chase turns into a wild goose chase, can anybody advise me on their personal experience with this type of golf bag?  I am currently using an old Quiver bag I bought years ago in the interim, but this bag weighs 2.5 pounds.  Some will think I am splitting hairs regarding this weight thing, but after many years of walking the fairways I know that weight matters, even my cronies are coming around to this idea.  Anyway thanks for your help, and looking forward to participating on the forums.

    • In the world of putting if it works I would just carry on  I don't think I can "nose " putt like that  I do something similar.  I trace the line with my eyes and set my set along the target line. My rear eye is dominant and as my eyes are tracing the line from my AP to the ball I like to keep my eyes behind and beneath the ball  Then once me eyes trace back to a the line behind the ball then I automatically start my backstroke.  This seems to work well with my odessay #9 putter or when belly wedge .  
    • All your comments are valid, but I should point out that all the tips I have been given have come via very good golfers. I am also a great believer that the best instruction doesn't have to come from the best golfers, much like any sport, and to some degree life in general. There are great school teachers who don't have children, if you get my point. The best golf tip I have ever received,and it knocked two shots off of my handicap over night, came from a 9 handicapper, not a pro. We sometimes fall into the trap of thinking a pro is a messiah, and somebody with less personal ability  doesn't have the knowledge to give instruction. I play against some very inexperienced golfers who would benefit from my tips, but I don't give them the help they need, because of the aforementioned concept. 
    • Got the new wedges yesterday and here are my initial thoughts.  1 - finish is much softer, more like a satin finish and not nearly as bright as the images on Rock Bottom's website. I consider it a plus.  2 - did a little chipping with them and some full swings using foam balls and they seem very well balanced and I swing them well as others I have tried that cost more. 3 - the components seem well made, the grips are a little disappointing (thin feeling) but they aren't unusable. I've been planning to get new grips for my driver and fairway woods anyhow so I need to do 5 instead of 3 now, no biggie. Hoping to get 9-holes in at the Par 3 course tomorrow evening and see how they perform there and how the finish holds up.
    • I'll take a stab at interpreting hasty smart phone predictive typing post. "Tiger in his 2014 and early 2015 days before taking the break for his injury was generally behind the field in strokes so how was that affecting his ego?" Was I close @Natural Patrick?
    • IMO it's not a sport, period. As far as the skills, I'm hardly an expert but it seems a little more like billiards with knowing banking angles. Don't see a lot of curving breaks across slopes, occasional ramps yes, but they tend to be straight. Lots of holes don't have the penal downhill runout where the ball goes forever on a miss. I wonder how these carpets typically stimp?
