Something for the golfer who already has everything they need...
on 11 December 2015
...or so they thought!
Exactly as currently pictured above, the set comes in a quality box measuring around 9 cm x 18 cm x 5.25 cm.
It has a picture of the contents on the front, a few notes about Colin's key achievements along with a multi-lingual description of the product on the back and...tartan sides!
Inside the stylish-looking BLACK & CREAM golf bag are three metal golf clubs, namely:
★ a driver
★ a putter
★ an iron
all masquerading as ballpoint pens, one with red ink, one with blue ink and one with black.
The relatively weighty 'clubs', stand in a solid (non-removable) tube in the middle of the bag. The handles pull off to reveal the ballpoints, although a bit of strength is required the first few times. They are comfortable in hand and write well once the point seal is broken. The ballpoint heads unscrew in order to pop in a refill when the time comes and the club heads also unscrew and are interchangeable, if required, as is everything really, including the little metallic ring which denotes the ink colour.
Fairly authentic looking in ‘synthetic leather’, there is a lot of attention to detail in this little set, with the stitching, a working buckle, a carrying strap and a ‘towel ring'. Although the zips are functional, they have padding behind so I assume they are for decorative purposes.
The signature name is on the bag in my set, i.e. ‘Colin Montgomerie’.
There is also a clock with second hand, in a silver-coloured surround measuring around 2 cm overall in diameter. This is a neat extra and although the first set needed to go back because the clock was already working on arrival, the second set was fine with the tab in place.
A bit of patience and dexterity is required for setting the time, with it working as you would expect a watch face to by pulling out the winder and rotating to move the hands – but it is very small!
The clock keeps good time, to date.
Out of the box...the bag, with or without the pens in situ, obediently stands stable on a weighted 4 cm diameter base. It is around 13.5 cm high, not allowing for the clubs sticking out the top which makes the height around 17.5 cm overall.
