What's in the Bag?
A question (and poll alongside):
Do people care that much about what's in a Professional golfer's bag? Which Driver do they use? What length of putter do they favour?...
I just read a blog where the author asked: What self-respecting golf blog doesn't have a What's in the Bag piece?
Mine doesn't. I can't believe that anyone gives a damn. The professionals... OK, I understand the attraction, but it makes not a jot of difference to me. If Rory uses a bazooka it's not going to influence my next choice of club... although it might influence the choice of weapon that I take to to the next AIB AGM. Eggs are for wimps.
No, I go to my Pro shop and we discuss the type of game I play, whether I draw or fade, what kind of swing I inflict on the ground (which he'll watch - outside the Pro shop, obviously)... and he then suggests a couple of club models and we go from there.
Personally, I have zero interest in what's in anybody's golf bag. Do you?
