Club Glove Selected by U.S. Ryder Cup Team to Provide Players, Captains with Last Bag, TRS Ballistic Luggage and Stiff Arm Device
Company’s Made-in-the-USA Gear Chosen by American Squad for Ninth Time
Club Glove® – a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of premium golf bags, club covers, travel bags, accessories and luggage – confirms its renowned, Made-in-the-USA Last Bag XL and TRS Ballistic Check-in XL, as well as the protective Stiff Arm Device will be used by U.S. Ryder Cup team players, captains and caddies as they travel to Europe for the 2014 matches.
This marks the ninth time Club Glove has officially outfitted Team USA for the biennial competition. The company – whose travel gear is used by the overwhelming majority of all PGA Tour players, according to Darrell Survey – created custom, personalized bags featuring the 2014 Ryder Cup logo and initials of each recipient.
“Our products are designed for those who refuse to take shortcuts when it comes to protecting their gear,” says company founder Jeff Herold. “That’s why we’ve been the choice of nearly every U.S. squad for the past 20 years, and have been asked to support the team on its quest to regain the Ryder Cup at Glen Eagles.”
Honored by Golf World magazine as one of the game’s “10 Best Innovations” and by GOLF Magazine as one of the top equipment “Game Changers” of the past 50 years, the Last Bag is the No. 1 golf travel bag brand at all PGA and Champions Tour events. It is perfectly complemented by the Stiff Arm Device, a fully adjustable, three-piece telescoping crutch that is slightly longer than the longest club in the bag, protecting clubs and shafts while eliminating nearly all risk of breakage.
Crafted to ensure trip preparation is a stress-free process, the TRS Ballistic Check-in XL features five packing modules for easy, wrinkle free clothing and accessories organization. With its unique rigid, yet soft-sided design, the luggage carries dimensions never before seen in the industry. Extremely functional and durable, all pieces in the collection are U.S. woven with military-spec INVISTA CORDURA® 1050 denier Ballistic Nylon fabric for unmatched abrasion and tear resistance.
Designed to exacting specifications, the ultra-premium TRS Ballistic luggage lines are available in all black or a fashionable two-tone black and bronze color schemes. Beyond the Check-in XL, the collection includes the retro-themed TravelRX ($399), Backpack ($349), Shoulder Bag ($349), Carry-on ($699), Check-in ($750) bags.
When used as a set, TRS Ballistic features Club Glove’s exclusive Train Reaction System, which allows users to chain multiple bags together and “outsmart the airport carts” by creating a perfect center of gravity, which drastically reduces the effort needed to pull or push gear.

More than 150 top athletes from the PGA Tour, NFL and MLB now trust the TRS Ballistic luggage line for all travel needs. These include PGA Tour superstars Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, Luke Donald, Nick Watney, Billy Horschel, Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson and Hunter Mahan.
In addition to supplying gear to the PGA Tour stars competing at the Ryder Cup, Club Glove has also outfitted the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup team, which squares off against its European counterparts September 22-24 at Blairgowrie Golf Club in Scotland. Each member received a personalized Last Bag, Rolling Duffle II and navy Suit Organizer, as well as a Stiff Arm Device. The luggage featured the official Junior Ryder Cup 2014 logo and custom embroidery with the names of each player.
