Golf, Amirite?!

Have you ever heard of the sport, "golf"? Well, it's this fun and exciting... Oh wait, you have? Oh... so, umm... Okay. Umm... I guess we could... no... Look, we'll be honest: we were hoping you hadn't ever heard of golf so that we could pitch it as a brand new sport we invented. Since you have, though, we really don't have much to say except, "buy."

I got the spackler golf bag on a previous woot event (though the price is slightly better now), and it's been great. Well made, great zippers, plenty of storage.

What's the name/model number of this OGIO bag?

I also got this bag:
https://sport.woot.com/offers/ogio-spackler-stand-golf-bag-8
the red one.

Construction is great, good materials, light, looks like it will last a while. The 8-way top is nice, but a little odd. A column of 4 single channel holes for 1 club. Then a second larger column of 4 long holes for 3+ clubs each, sorta. Not the best design, but it will do.

just bought the crush golf balls, we'll see how they turn out.

I do not beleive these words mean to say that the size of the hole is, in actuality, smaller than the ball itself, but instead means to convey the seemingly impossible task of accurately placing any size ball into such a small hole. As small as the ball is, it is indeed the size of the hole that causes the concern when one seeks to undertake the monstrous task of placing the ball in the hole from such an extraordinary distance using such ill-concieved paraphernalia.

I bought this exact bag from Woot last time around for about $55 a love it. It holds everything, is light and the stand is sturdy enough that I don't feel like I have to be gentle with it. At $35 plus shipping it is a steal.

Do you happen to know what the name of the bag is?

I also got the Spackler, and I'm not crazy about it. It is well made, but there are a couple of design oddities. The 'cooler pocket' is where a ball pocket would normally be, and it has a single zipper which starts and ends at the base off the pocket. The result is when I unzip, my balls fall out. Oooer missus!

Seriously, a double zipper so you could open from the top would be much better. My other beef is that it really does not fit well on a pull cart. The stand works great though.

At this price, I think I'll try my luck with the other Ogio bag.

It is the Helios Bag. Here is the link from the last time it was on WOOT!

Actually, it's very unlikely that Churchill was the source of this quote, despite the fact that it is so often attributed to him.

The more you know!

Cool. I actually googled around quite a few places to see if this was an actual quote. Missed that site. Thanks!
