Golfsmith let me down :(

I had ordered an Ogio Amp cart bag from Golfsmith at the end of March. I was told a week after ordering it that it was backordered about 4 weeks. No big deal, I live in snow country, and I wasn't needing it like a blood transfusion. Apparently shipping date was May 1, factory direct.

I come to find out today that they are still backordered and shipping date is June 16th. Plus you have to factor in customs (which could take as long as 3-4 weeks, depending on where it goes through). So i'd be potentially getting this bag about the end of July, pending any more issues.

So, to make a long story short, I have 109.99 at Golfsmith that I need to use up. I'm not waiting that damn long for a bag that i could buy locally. Initially there was no indication of a delay, and when there was, I was willing to wait the snow melt to get it. But half the season? Up that.

Any ideas what I should go for? I'm pretty much stocked on gloves, hats, clubs, shoes, jackets and clothes. I could use some HX Blues, but not 100 bucks worth.

I'm pretty much bummed about the idea of a new bag now, as my carry bag is holding it's own.

I'm open to suggestions.

Do they have Red Lobster at GS? :p

Load up on brush tees... they're the bomb!


Actually I'd try and get my money back if you don't NEED anything ;)

Ya, after I posted that, I phoned and cancelled my bag order. Sorta sucks, I really wanted that bag.

Brush tees? Dude, they suck. Plain and simple. I did a review on them once, pitted them against Veloci-tees. Both suck.

Maybe I'll load up on conventional white tees. No wait, natural. I hear the paint on white tees slows down your clubhead through impact. :horse:

My buddy tried out the Brush Tees recently because he didn't wanna mark up his new G2 driver. He wrecked two of them by the time one round was done.

They're total crap.

Hey, you could get one of those powerxswing things the new guy is selling and let us know if it works. That, or you could ship me $109.00 worth of Canadian beer and I'll review that for you. :p

I have a staff bag already. I keep rakes and shovels and umbrella's in it.

If I had a guy to hike it around next to me, I might think of getting a new one. :p

I gotta get my sticks outta hock first. See, I owed rent on my driving range, which is owned by my ex-girlfriend/stripper.

You see my problems here.

Yes - you got issues when your ex gf/stripper is as butt-ass ugly as that. It's tough when you're caddy is stoned all the time too.
