Choosing a Golf Bag
Even the most casual of golfers needs a golf bag. Having
the right golf bag is essential. It is another tool to help
raise your game. If your clubs and other equipment are stored
in an appropriately sized and organized bag, you can concentrate
on your game. Otherwise you can be scrambling to find your
rain gear when hit by a sudden shower or for another golf
ball to replace the one you just hit into the middle of the
lake. For anyone looking to purchase a golf bag, there are
several things to consider and brand is not necessarily one
When it comes to golf bags, size does matter. Some tour bags
seem like they are big enough to double as a shelter in a
rainstorm while I have seen golf bags so small they look like
they could hold no more than a putter and a driver. So how
big of a golf bag do you actually need? Try to determine your
present requirements based on current equipment. Then, consider
how your equipment list may change and grow over the projected
lifetime of the bag.
The durability of a golf bag depends on design, material and
treatment. If you are a casual golfer who stores your golf
bag in the house after use, you could enjoy a nylon bag that
isnít very expensive.
If you are a more frequent golfer and keep your golf bag in
the trunk of your car, then you will probably want a bag made
of leather or vinyl. Remember, the golf bag is not just for
carrying the clubs, it is also for protecting them.
Depending on how you get around the course, you will want
to decide between a carry bag and a cart bag. A cart bag is
nice if you use a golf cart frequently. Cart bags are also
designed to be used with a pull cart.
When considering a cart bag, consider also the type of pull
cart you will use. Test the ease of motion and comfort of
the handle at preferred transportation angles. Check if any
of the features that help you transport the golf bag are adjustable,
as the center of gravity will vary depending on the load in
If you are accustomed to walking, you should look for a golf
bag that is comfortable, light weight and ergonomically designed
to minimize the stress on your back and shoulders. Many of
the new bags have gel carry straps for shoulder comfort.
If you use extended length shafts...ensure that the golf bag
you are considering will adequately protect as much of the
shaft as possible and comes with the enough club dividers
to satisfy your needs.
Color and accessories are really a matter of taste, need and
how much extra money you are willing to spend. Some golfers
want to make their bags unique. Some just want a place to
put their clubs.
It does not matter how often you play golf, at some point
that golf bag is going to need to be stored somewhere. Ensure
that the size golf bag you purchase will fit in the area where
you will be storing it.
