Which cart bag

14 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, so I think I have everything I need to get started.....just need a cart bag as Im using a stand bag on my trolley at the mo and it doesnt sit too well. I have a longridge tri-cart, but dont know if all bags fit all trolleys or which trolley to get. I have about £100 to spend and dont mind 2nd hand from Ebay etc, just want a decent bag.

Titleist Lightweight Cart bag is great. 14 way dividers and a racked top that presents the clubs nicely when on a cart. Putter well (15 slot) and more. One complaint is the towel ring is only on the right side. Wish it had two because my bag is always on the left side of the cart as I face the bags. A left ring would allow the towel to hang to the outside.

Sun Mountain's version (C130) is a little boxier looking but has two rings and a slot for the cart strap. They make the Titleist bag.

JUST NOTICED YOU SAID TROLLY -- which I think of as a pull cart. I have no idea if the bags above will work with a trolly. They will work great with a buggy (I think that is what you call riding carts).

Ogio makes some really light weight cart bags, they are actually lighter than some of the carry bags.  Can't remember the name of the one that would be perfect fit for a push cart, but I'm thinking that will be my next bag as I don't carry anymore I use a 3 wheel push cart.

I currently have a lightweight cart bag from Ogio....and it's nice overall. It's appearance and the zipperless ball pocket are my favorite features. But my next cart bag is going to be different.   I will ignore any cart bags advertised as "lightweight", "compact", or another other descriptor that should not be applied to a cart bag.  My next cart bag will be very spacious, have large club slots, an external putter slot that keeps the putter well-separated, and plenty of pockets of all sizes.  The damn thing is going to be in a cart or on a trolley (as you say) so I don't care about weight.  I want room and club separation....and lot's of it.

I agree on the size/weight etc of the bag I just want room for everything and the seperate putter well is a must I think. I have narrowed it down to Powakaddy Deluxe or one of Taylormades larger bags, probably the

Taylormade Catalina 3.0 2012

Features:
New 14-Way Stadium Design Top with integrated Handle (19.1cm x 27.9cm)
Integrated Putter Well
11 Front Accessible Pockets
Large insulated Cooler Pocket
TPR Anti-Slip Cart Strap Pad
Internal Crush Proof Construction
Soft Touch Front Handles
2.9 kg
2 FAS-TEK Receivers

Seems to have it all

I currently use the  Callaway Org 14 Sport Cart Bag.  I would recommend veering away from this one.  The clubs get stuck going in and coming out and the bag is quite heavy.  I did hear that the Titleist Lightweight Cart bag is quite nice though.

IMPORTANT!!!!!!!

Do NOT buy a Titleist lightweight cart bag if you use a pull cart. The front of the bag slopes down and there is no possible way of securing the straps. I had one and tried all sorts of methods and it can't be done. Had to return it.

Pity, because it's a nice bag if it's vertical.

If you need your bag waterproof in any way don't buy Powakaddy. The rain hood is designed in such a way that it leaves two decent sized holes letting water run down inside the bag (incidentally the design team at Powakaddy in a response email to me believe that the drain holes at the bottom of the bag combat this, so let the water in, it gets all your gear wet but hey, it drains away so that's OK).

I've enclosed a pic to show the flaw.

Why don't you just put that over the top rather than looping it underneath the handle? You could unsnap it if you needed to use the handle to put your bag in your car or something, but then the holes wouldn't be oriented under the handle and above the point where the bag stops.

Hi, I did try that but it still left holes for the water to get in in the form of two longish strip holes. What a crap design.

Sorry forgot to mention that as the fixings are Velcro on the front you need to use the strap loop as the rear fixing.

      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
