If there is one golf bag that all Golfers want to know about, it’s Tiger Woods. With his iconic Tiger driver headcover and sleek black leather design the bag stands out at ever event. Most Golfers are of course well aware about the 15 (and counting) time Major winner’s TaylorMade setup but the bag manufacturer itself is a little harder to identify. That’s because it’s without doubt one of the most understated, yet stylish and luxurious Golf bag brands out there.
The brand that creates Tiger’s golf bag is none other than Vessel and it’s caddie Joe LaCava’s job to be the man with it on his shoulder and by Tiger’s side.
Vessel’s aim is to create ‘luxury products that support disruptive brands, athletes and professionals to fulfil their purpose’ some which resonates with Tiger.
It’s not just Tiger that Vessel work with on Tour, other’s such as Jordan Spieth, Luke List, Martin Kaymer and over a hundred other PGA and LPGA Golfers are also onboard. Last year we had an in depth review of the Vessel golf bag offering and learnt more about the styles and designs they offer.
Tiger Wood’s Monster Bag
Back in 2016 Tiger signed a multi-year deal with the energy drink brand, Monster Energy. Since then we’ve become accustomed to seeing the Monster Energy logo adorn a Vessel designed bag at every event Tiger attends.
This branded version of the bag is incredibly hard to get hold off. Back in 2018 Tiger did however auction off a signed and branded bag with the proceeds going towards the TGR Foundation charity, ultimately selling for $19,000.
The good news is that the bag style that Tiger uses is the Vessel Prime Staff which is freely available to the public at vesselbags.com. The bag itself is made from the finest materials in order to create a truly luxurious and robust finish. The design incorporates 8 pockets complete with 2 water bottle compartments and an umbrella sleeve. The microsuede backed synthetic leather is key to making the bag highly durable, heat resistant and have low abrasion characteristics. Vessel pitch the Prime Staff as ‘ideal for those who demand the most out of their equipment and like to make a bold statement.’
Internally, a 6-way top with full-length divider system creates superior protection for clubs and shafts. High quality magnetic pocket closures are seen throughout the bag and velour lined valuables pockets which include key hooks and waterproof zips all make for an exceptional product.
