I think we all appreciate that a good golf swing requires more than being repeatable. A golfer’s body first needs the strength and flexibility to get to the ‘right’ places at the ‘right’ time to make it all happen.
A recent article in The Washington Post shed some humor and some light on this topic.
Des Bieler of The Washington Post wrote, “A good swing requires a fairly broad range of motion, and as it turned out, I don’t have that. On the golf course, I certainly have a broad range of emotions — frustration, sadness, jealousy, shame, despair — but a range of motion, not so much.”

The folks at Plugged-In Golf conducted a VERY thorough test of the Sun Mountain H2NO waterproof golf bag.
(We do not suggest you try this at home. These are trained professionals on a closed track.)
And we passed …. with flying colors!
The review covers ‘style’, ‘quality’, and ‘design & performance’ and concludes with a video of a waterproof test no golf bag should have to live through. I mean, come on, do you know how much more fine and how much more pressure is behind a hose from 12” than from a rain storm? This test is like running the bag through a hurricane. And then he dumps the whole bag in a pool! We did not design the H2NO to withstand a temper-induced throw into the water hazard. But, alas, the bag passed the test. Whew! Continue Reading »
Ronald Montesano from Golf WRX took our ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag for a trial run and rated it 4.7 out of 5 for a score of “Fantastic”.
Here’s a summary of what he had to say:
Pros: Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider Meridian is the only golf travel bag that comes equipped with four wheels — one pair with retractable legs — that hold 100 percent of the weight. That provides stability and convenience while transporting clubs through airports, hotels and parking lots.
Cons: With an MSRP of $289, it resides in the higher price range of travel bags.
Bottom Line: The ClubGlider travel bag from Sun Mountain makes traveling easier with a set of added wheels and retractable legs, keeps clubs safe with thick foam padding on the interior and protects against wear with reinforced vinyl on the bottom of the bag. There’s plenty of value here.
For 2014, ClubGlider golf travel bags are available in four different models – Pro, Meridian, Journey and the new Tour Series – offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals. Retail prices are $349, $289, $219, and $319 respectively.

Martin Hopley of GolfALot.com recently posted a review of the Sun Mountain ClubGlider golf travel bag.
Martin started by saying, “This could be one of the shortest reviews I have done because the concept of the product is easy to explain and because it is brilliant.”
Martin points out the key advantage of the ClubGlider: the extendable leg that supports all of the weight, the caster wheels for easy 360⁰ maneuvering, and that the leg tucks away securely for travel. Continue Reading »
