A simple question to answer today - is it possible to build a Tour ready golf bag for under £1000? No corners cut, just a fantastic collection of, top class and proven winners. Have a read, and you'll not only see it's possible with Golfbidder, but you'll have plenty of money left over for premium balls to make your new clubs sing!

Driver

If you're looking for a proven driver, the M5 or M6 from TaylorMade has to be it. As used by some of the top players in the world; the M6 with Dustin Johnson, Tommy Fleetwood, Jason Day and the M5 in the hands of Tiger, Rory, and Brooks Koepka.

The engineering is all about exacting tolerances. A super-thin twist face for ball speed and forgiveness, 3.4-grams lighter with more carbon, and a two-mph ball speed gain versus previous models.

Which one you pick is up to you. Both are available on Golfbidder for around the same price. Go with the M5 if you like to tinker and play with your driver to dial in your stats. Or the M6 if you trust the engineers at TaylorMade to set your driver up for maximum distance and forgiveness at the factory.

Fairway Wood

Onto our fairway wood, and we will stick with TaylorMade. The original M2 is still available and used in 2020 by several Tour players including Brooks Koepka. But for this bag, let's pick the M4 fairway wood. A few upgrades on the M2 and will be forever an iconic Major winning club in the hands of Shane Lowry to win the 2019 Open Championship at Portrush.

Irons

When it comes to tour-level irons, Titleist's record over the years has been nothing short of exceptional. Never a company to overmarket its products, they let their equipment do the talking. The AP or Advanced Performance family spanned 12 years and six models for Titleist. The AP2 took off on tour with the 'better players' look at address, yet with plenty of forgiveness via tungsten weighting in the heel and toe. The 716 AP2 irons as used by Jordan Spieth to win the 2017 Open Championship at Birkdale make their way into our bag.

Wedges

For the short game next and you have endless choices within budget for your wedges. But if you want relentless consistency, exceptional build quality, and of course tour-proven, then Vokey wedges from Titleist are your only option. Vokey SM7 sand and lob wedge for £75 each, in the bag.

Putter

The most important club in the bag! But for this bag, it's back to TaylorMade for their Spider Tour model. It has made a more than significant impact on tour over the past few years; helping Sergio to win The Masters and victories in the hand of Dustin Johnson and Jason Day. Very high MOI or resistance to twisting putter with its pure roll insert for around £150 warrants the final place in our tour-ready bag.

So to recap; M6 driver for £230, M4 fairway £120, AP2 irons for £300, two Vokey SM7's for £150, and a Tour Spider putter for £150. A premium tour-ready bag for a total of £950.
