Guys,

Thanks for the welcome.

@golfjoy, not yet.

@jeffman88, thanks for the tip. I shall check that place out.

Anyways, hope it's fine to ask but where are some of the safer places to check out new or used gear? i'm told golfhouse is over-priced. so far, i've only bought stuff there that were on sale. i'm should prolly pickup some used balls for the green too. Smile

@Nimo
Welcome Welcome to GR

@pippin
Interesting but why a Sunday bag is a give away if you like to look like a pro or good player? lol!

I felt the opposite. When I saw a guy bring his whole complete bag to the driving range, either he is too lazy to remove those club or he still need to practice with all of it.

If I saw a guy bring only his Sunday bag that have fairway wood and long irons, I know he is on his way to be a better player or only carry putter and wedges. I know he is on a training schedule and knew what is his weakness in his game ROFL ROFL .. Just my thought, bro not important

Origins of term "Sunday Bag"

They're called Sunday bags because back in the day when people were really religious and didn't work on the what Christians observe as the Sabbath (Sunday).

Therefore there were no caddies to carry the bags on Sunday. The 'Sunday' bag was invented so the golfer could carry his own bag.

This was the time when bags were leather and heavier to today's bags.

@pippin - haha! i no need look pro. just practicality. bring whole bag (dunno is called what also... stand? staff? si beh blur...) of irons to range, i wun use all. prefer to bring 3-5 clubs and practise instead.

@hardrock - in a few forums but main one is VOGS. used to drive a Tom Yum. Smile

@mountain - thanks!

@Slicer51 - my thoughts exactly.

@jeffman88 - thanks for the education. thought it was sunday bag for lazy sunday golfers (i can be quite lazy sometimes)...
