Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of Jones Sports, the company founded in Portland, Oregon, by a cab driver named George Jones, who sold his original golf bags out of the trunk of his taxi. All these years later, the business continues to prosper. Next month it is set to release new versions of the Utility Rover bag.
Now available in sea foam herringbone, navy herringbone and gray herringbone, this is a portable product, 35 inches long and tipping the scales at 3.2 pounds. The bag features a two-way divider on top and comes with a single or double strap.
It also has a total of six pockets, with a large belly pocket that can store extra layers of clothing and a zipper pocket for valuables. An insulated, quick-draw pocket is included to hold beverages during rounds, and a Velcro patch makes it easy to access one’s golf glove – and to dry it out when it gets wet from perspiration and/or rain.
Heavy-duty D-rings are added so players have a place to hang rangefinders, and a mesh sleeve is designed to hold a Bluetooth speaker.
