All players want the best in terms of equipment. And the golf bag is no exception. Trolley bag, carry bag, tour bag, everyone has their preference. Even though fiber bags wear out and break, they have their benefits like waterproof or isothermal pockets. Yes, but would not it be better a pretty patina rather than a crushed strap or a torn pocket?
