Carry Bags With Attitude From Molhimawk and Loudmouth Golf

Posted at 2:50 PM by Mike Walker

Loudmouth_golfbagHey, man, nice bag.

That's probably the last thing you'll ever hear at a golf course. While golf apparel has undergone a sea change in the last five years from Rickie Fowler's Creamsicle shirts to Freddie Couples' sockless-and- spikeless look at Augusta, the golf bag has remained frozen in the 1990s, a David Duval in a Rory McIlroy world.

Mitch Mitchell and Dave Macintosh, the founders of Molhimawk, want to change that. Molhimawk -- which means "albatross" in Maori -- designs carry bags with bold designs, and Mitchell and Macintosh are hoping that golfers will like bags with swagger. To that end, Mohimawk has teamed up with Loudmouth Golf -- yup, the company that created John Daly's disco-ball pants -- to design a series of bags with Loudmoth's famous designs, like the "Magic Bus" [photo, right].

"We want to take classic patterns and give them a fun, fashion-forward twist," Mitchell said. "We're two guys who love to golf and felt there was a real need for fun, energetic, vibrant golf bags."

Mitchell and Macintosh got the idea for the company while playing the Olympic Club in San Francisco, one of the more vigorous walks you'll find in golf, and they sketched out their first business plan on -- you guessed it -- a cocktail napkin in the clubhouse.

\ Bag2Molhimawk launched in 2009, and the partnership with Loudmouth started last year. The bags debuted in December and a month later the five eye-catching patterns in the line turned a few heads at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

"People went nuts," Mitchell said. "They went crazy over the bags."

One of the things he heard from several people at the PGA Show was that while they loved the Loudmouth style, they couldn't quite pull off the clothes. But they could carry a Loudmouth bag.

Mitchell said that Molhimawk bags are build for comfort and durability, and promises that it will feel like the lightest bag you've ever carried.

"We are serious walking golfers and our No. 1 goal was comfort," Mitchell said. "We also work closely with the manufacturer to make sure they are incredibly durable."

The Molhimawk carry bags are available at both Molhimawk.com and Loudmouthgolf.com for $150. Molhimawk donates 2 percent of all sales to The First Tee of San Francisco youth-development program.

Luke Donald using Mizuno's new MP-T11 wedges

Posted at 3:36 PM by David Dusek


Luke Donald is one of the best bunker players in the world. This season he's playing with new wedges, changing from Mizuno's MP-T10 to the company's newest model, the MP-T11.

Luke-Donald-Mizuno-MPT11-Wedge_600x450

Like its predecessor, the MP-T11 wedges are forged from 1025 carbon steel and feature Mizuno's Quad Cut Groove technology. The company says the process allows Mizuno to precisely control the width, depth, draft angle and shoulder radius of each groove more precisely.

When Golf Magazine asked several "regular Joes" to try the MP-T11 wedges, they said that the clubs seemed to produce as much spin with their new, USGA-conforming grooves as old, big-grooved wedges did. Testers also noted that the clubs easily handled a variety of lies and were extremely versatile, providing excellent distance control on chips and pitches along with a soft feel.

The only knock against the MP-T11 wedges heard was voiced by a few testers who said the clubs felt a little light and were not as forgiving as some other wedges on the market.

Learn more about the MP-T11 on Mizuno's Web site.
