Bag Boy's Deluxe bag

There are few sounds more exasperating on a golf course – apart from FORE! – than clubs clanking together as their owner marches along.

And it seems to resonate at the most irritating moment - as you’re stooped over a three-foot putt, or about to unleash a driver down the narrowest of tree-lined fairways.

Now Bag Boy, one of America’s leading manufacturers of golf bags, trolleys and travel covers for more than 50 years, is launching its new NXO Series trolley bags featuring patented Grip-Lok Technology at the London Golf Show this week.

Both the NXO Deluxe and NXO Plus models incorporate the innovative Grip-Lok system that locks clubs in place, preventing them bashing against each other and damaging heads and shafts. It even stops clubs falling out if, as occasionally happens, the bag is tipped over.

Fourteen club sleeves surrounded by five soft, durable rubber ‘teeth’ hold clubs in place and prevent them knocking together even over the most bumpy ground.

Says Craig Ramsbottom, president of Bag Boy: "Grip-Lok Technology allows golfers to conveniently protect their investment."

The NXO Deluxe also features 12 functional pockets for convenient storage, a removable cooler bag for drinks, handy external putter sleeves, and an exclusive Strap-Lok System to prevent bags twisting on the trolley.

Recommend price is £109 (or £120 direct from including delivery). Alternatively call 01506 505525 for your nearest TGI dealer. The NXO Plus costs £95 (£106).
