Yup. It’s that time of the year again! This time around, I only got two golf-related items… but they are substantial items!

First, Beth got me a TaylorMade Rossa Monza Spider putter. I’ve been eyeing this putter for a while now, and I figured it could be a nice addition to my set of TaylorMade clubs. I really like the feel and weight distribution of mallet-style putters. This putter allows you to move around the weights, which adjusts the center of gravity to increase stability of the putter. I don’t necessarily think I’ll need to mess with this, but it’s nice option to have.

Second, with some “birthday card cash” (and a couple of Golfsmith coupons that I luckily found), I bought a new golf bag: a Sun Mountain Four 5 stand bag. I chose this bag mainly because it was one of the few stand bags with a 14-way divider. I’ve heard a lot of good opinions and bad opinions about 14-way dividers. Obviously, this is all down to personal preference, but I think the bag will satisfy a bit of organization OCD I might have. The bag also has an easily accessible water bottle pouch, which will be nice when I have to walk 18 holes again. And, best of all, the bag only weighs 4.5 lbs (hence the name “Four 5″), without clubs, of course.

Once again, thanks to all that helped contribute to this!
