The honest truth about dishonesty

"If golfers want to abuse the system, there is always a way of doing so. It's just the fact that they can get away with it and are not punished when 'rumbled' that is so annoying"

It's fair to say that Sunday at Seminole was largely uninspiring but one thing it did spark was a gender debate with Mel Reid. Did golf miss an opportunity to showcase ALL the game has to offer?

Golf bag and push trolley gurus Big Max are introducing three new stand bags this spring, adding a great choice of technology, innovation and price to its award winning bag range.

Underpinned by its 100% waterproof Aqua technology and its water-resistant Dri Lite technology, the Big Max bag range combines unique practical innovations with standout styling and multiple colour combinations.

Leading the technological advancements is the Aqua Hybrid 2. The Hybrid is a 100% waterproof stand bag with unique innovations that allow it to sit perfectly on a trolley. A specially designed, flat, footless base provides a smooth stand bag mechanism that allows the bag to sit perfectly square when placed on a trolley. In addition, the bag’s legs are housed down the body of the bag, allowing the reinforced connection area to meet the trolley’s top bracket, completely eliminating twisting.With 7 spacious waterproof pockets, 14-way divider and neat features such as leg lock, cooler pocket, Velcro glove holder and large 9” top, the Hybrid has all the function of the best cart bags. But take the hybrid out on its own and it transforms to a stylish lightweight stand bag. The footless stand mechanism works exactly like any other stand bag while the air channel straps allow for breathability and comfort. At just 2.3 kg, the Hybrid is a breeze to carry and keeps golfers’ gear completely dry with its Aqua technology. Brand new styling for 2020 gives the Hybrid 2 a unique look in 5 colour combinations, completing the package that really makes this a bag for all seasons and all golfers.

The Aqua Eight and Dri Lite Eight bring practical, innovative design together with iconic Big Max styling, making these two of the best looking bags on the market. The Dri Lite Eight features Big Max water resistant technology that is the equal of what most brands in the market call ‘Waterproof’. With waterproof fabric and waterproof zips, the Dri Lite keeps all but the wettest days at bay, but with the time and expertise taken to ensure that the fully seam sealed Aqua range is 100% waterproof, Big Max are happy to call Dri Lite water resistant.

The two ‘Eight’ bags both feature an 8.5” top with 7 full length dividers keeping clubs in order. Smart innovations like the velcro glove holder, cooler pocket, air channel strap and leg lock system for use on trolleys mean the ‘Eight’ bags make a golfer’s life on course that little bit easier and a super light weight of 1.9kg for the Dri Lite and 2kg for the Aqua takes the strain out of carrying.

Six waterproof pockets in the Dri Lite Eight and five spacious waterproof pockets in the Aqua Eight give all the storage a golfer could need and with a striking two tone design on the Aqua and popping accent colours on the Dri Lite these bags look fantastic. With different price points that reflect their waterproofing, the ‘Eight’ bags from Big Max offer two fantastic options for golfers that want to walk the course in style and comfort.

Big Max Aqua bags have a hydrostatic rating of 10,000mm while the Dri Lite series rates at 2000mm. Hydrostatic testing of waterproof fabric gives a mm per 24 hours rating. This refers to the amount of rainfall a fabric can withstand in a single day. Thus, a 10,000mm waterproof rating means the product can withstand 10,000mm of rainfall in a single day without letting moisture in.

AQUA HYBRID 2. SRP: €289 Available in: Black, Grey/Black, Lime/Black, Navy/White/Red, Steel Blue/Black/Orange.

AQUA Eight. SRP: €239 Available in: Black, Charcoal/Black/Lime, Grey/Black, Petrol/Black/Orange, Charcoal/Silver/Fuchsia, White/Orange
