Golf Bag Repair - Broken Leg

7 posts in this topic

I've got an IZZO Ultra Light Stand bag and the leg splintered off at the connection point at the top of the bag. It's a number of years old (more than 1 - No Warranty) and IZZO doesn't have replacement parts.

Anyone have any suggestions on repairing a broken leg on a golf bag?

Regards,

Start saving for a new bag. I doubt there is much you can do for it. Tape or glue won't last as much as the leg is used. It probably wouldn't be worth the time or expence to fix it anyway.

^^Exactly my thinking, by the time you fix it, you could have put that towards a new bag. Even if you just got a cheap one for the time being, that would be better than putting more money into an already busted bag

Here is what I did on my Ping Hoofer bag: I took an old graphite callaway warbird 5 wood I had and cut the shaft at the head and just below the grip. I measured the length needed and cut to fit. I took some club head epoxy and glued into the holder. It works perfect and looks identical due to it being a black shaft!!

It saved me from buying a new bag.

That's pretty much exactly what a friend of mine did when he broke the leg of his stand bag and it's still going strong. He also put a inch long end piece of a grip on the end to stop it scraping against the ground too much.

Good Job! I love Magyver type repairs. I'm constantly fiddling with stuff to make it work better/last longer. I fashioned my pool cover drain out of some 1/2 inch tubing, a wiffle golf ball (filter) and a busted shaft of a 5 iron that still had the grip. Give me some old parts, some JB weld, my bench vise and a hacksaw, I'll fix it!

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
