You sir are on the right track. The Sun Mountain Four 5 is a great bag. I love mine. If you like Tilteist, the Titleist 14 way bag is also a good one (it too is made by Sun Mountain).

A lot of people seem to like the Ogio bags, although I've never cared for how the slots were laid out; but check them out as well as their quality is good and you may like the layout.

I have the Four 5 and if something happened to it I would buy another without even looking at the other options.  I like it that much.  I'd say if you walk a lot, get the four 5, if not, then the sun mountain hybrid.

I could not agree more with the above statement.

the four 5 is good, but also a cheaper option is a 2011 sun mountain hybrid.  it's pretty much the exact same bag but nearly 50% cheaper.  try ebay.

I think the hybrid is a lot bigger, isn't it?  I remember seeing in the store, thinking it was a Four 5, and being disappointed.  Then I found the Four 5

the newer 2013 hybrid is bigger, and it doesn't have the dual strap either.  the 2011-2012 hybrid is under 1lb. heavier, but for the most part is the same bag as the newest four 5. you just have to go somewhere like ebay to find the closeout hybrids, as all the ones in the store will be 2013.

Super nice, tons of room, not clunky with an overabundance of pockets everywhere.

I was looking about this time last year, so that must have been the 2012 model.  maybe the 2011's were different, or maybe i'm wrong.

I have a Titleist 14 way premium stand bag. Really nice bag - lots of room, fits nicely on my cliqgear too. Agree with previous post, it's a sun mountain bag with titleist badging. I was interested in the sun mountain hybrid, but local golf town dint carry them.

    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6 The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. The body should lead and pull the arms, however this does not suggest the arms should trail too much that they become disconnected. Teaching pros argue all the time whether the swing is a oull or a push. Many say it is a pull, because the modern swing is taught to have the body pull the arms as much as possible, especially for power in younger golfers. However the old school still calls it a push, because there is always connection. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will follow close behind. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....

      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
