Change of plans. The BOGO offer is also available at Dick's sporting goods (and maybe other stores?). No shipping for that. I guess it's good to check the "junk" mail since I got that flyer today w/ the coupon. $1.41/ball.

Also are Dick's and Golf Galaxy the same company?
I'd say just get a bag you think you'll like. I also have both - a Sun Mountain C130 cart bag which gets most of the use (and which has both 14 way dividers and a cooler pocket) and a stand bag for when I carry. It's probably on the big side for regular push cart use, otherwise it's great.

Yes, Dick's bought Golf Galaxy, same company.

Yes, I use an Ogio cart bag. I will never walk and carry my bag again in my life so I have no purpose for a stand or any reason to keep it lightweight. I guess there are times where I'd like a stand like when loading or unloading but not enough to care.

Maybe it was already asked and answered, but if so I missed it. Do you have a range bag? I'm getting sick of carrying my cart bag to/from the range and I'm going to the range with my wife the year more than I've ever gone myself in my life.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Our range is a very short walk from the parking lot, so it has never crossed my mind. I would probably just use my push cart if it was a longer walk since it only takes 10 seconds to whip together. Some days I just grab the 3 or 4 clubs i'm going to hit at the range and leave the rest.

Bought some tees for $0.97 thanks to an eBay coupon.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

i haven't directly bought tees in at least 5 years. tees are free on the range at Bandon so i just stock up every time i go (which is why i say i haven't directly bought them...cause i'm sure i paid for them).

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Does anyone know the distinction with the Callaway Epic Flash and the Epic Flash Sub Zero?

I hit one at a demo day and got all the specs but now can't recall which model it was between the 2 above.

I think the main difference is that you will see a lower spin rate with the epic flash Sub-Zero. It might be more adjustable as well but I'm not sure about that.

+1 except for the Bandon thing. My plastic tees almost never break plus I usually pick up a few lying around the tee boxes.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

I never heard of Bandon, but I haven't heard of most courses so that's no surprise. Decided to Google it and damn. It looks like they have 2 courses in golf digests top 100. sure looks nice. I've never been to Oregon, but we may have to plan a trip there... In November when it drops to "only" $175/round or December when it's $100.

Then again, it appears the weather could be a challenge to plan around.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

There's a long thread about Bandon in this forum -- multiple posters have been there and there is a ton of good info.

I haven't been yet but definitely want to get there someday.

all four of their 18 hole courses are in the top 14 of Golf Digest's top 100 public courses. a 5th 18 hole course is currently under construction and will open next year. all signs point to it potentially being the best of the lot.

yeah otter, go check out the Bandon thread. regarding the prices, the 2nd round of the day is half price and many folks play 36 a day for that reason. i've only played in in January at the lowest rates. also note Bandon is walking only.
