Titleist StaDry cart bags?

6 posts in this topic

Anyone familiar with these? I have a chance to buy a new one at a decent price, I can't find a review anywhere and can't see before I buy! I've had an eye on waterproof bags for a while, but keep holding out because they're expensive, this ones been reduced plus a further 20% off too this wkend! Just wondering if anyone can recommend them?

Anyone? I've only got a day to decide! I believe they're made by sun mountain? So possibly similar to their h2no? Here's a pic

Well, I couldn't find any reviews! No one seems to have owned one! So I guess I better put some info out there! The bag is very pleasing to the eye! Looks sturdy and well put together yet strangely is incredibly lightweight! I mean extremely lightweight! (It says 2.6 kg) Although I've had no rain yet, it does look totally waterproof! The hood is a kind of PVC and all zips are those thermo sealed ones so once hood is on and everything's zipped up Im expecting it to be bulletproof! And it's really lightweight too! 14 way full length dividers inc large putter well that fits a scotty cameron with head cover in nice and easy! The dividers are of a good size and clubs glide in and out with ease! It's also really lightweight for a cart bag ! It has two disguised grab handles at top, plus strap at back, that slots into its purpose built pocket so doesn't get in the way, making it very easy to transport! Especially as it's so light! So far so good! Now the pockets! The pockets look bigger from the outside! They're lined and make them smaller on the inside, but I guess that's to enhance the waterproofness of the bag! It has 2 full length apparel pockets, which is good, as there a bit tight on space, I like to carry extra kit in winter so between the 2 there's just enough room without having to screw my galvins up too much! 2 fur lined valuable pockets, small, but big enough for phone, keys and wallet! And then 3 pockets of different sizes down the spine, one for balls, two for gloves, tees, accessories etc. Even when I fully loaded the bag it was still very light! Umbrella holder, cart strap tunnel, a ring for attaching towel/groove brush! So all in all I'm happy, I expect it to last and keep my stuff dry through the UK's wet climate! To make this bag perfect?.... Maybe a drink holster? Pen holder? I'm just being picky! I think it's a good looking, quality bag that has just enough space for winter golf while remaining very lightweight and very functional! Score?... Almost 9 out of 10

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Look at Ben Hogan. He played in exactly one Open Championship. Before Arnold Palmer brought it back into the fold as something you should be playing every year it was just too expensive for such a little purse to win. There wasn't much prestige in winning it during that time.  Look at the US open. Since 1993, only 52% of the time a non-US golfer won the US Open. From 1950 till 1993 only 92% of was won by US golfers.   Same with the PGA Championship. Since 1993 the US has only won 56% of them. From the time they went to stroke play (1958) till 1992 the US won 86% of them.  Same with The Masters. Since 1993 the US has won 56% of them. From 1950 till 1992 the US won 77% of them.  It just goes to show you that the influx of non-US golfers to the PGA Tour field of players has made it that much more difficult for US golfers to win a major.  Could I say that it was 30% easier for Jack to win those majors because of the non-US golfers who stayed away from traveling to the US to play?  US Open: 40% less likely US player wins after 1993
      PGA Championship: 30% less likely a US Player wins after 1993
      The Masters: 20% less likely a US Player wins after 1993

    • Longer or More Accurate?
      That doesn't make it a trick question. People aren't so lousy with accuracy that they're off 200 yards, but their tee shots travel 200 yards toward the target fairly often. The 10% thing helps to adjust them to the proper scale. I hit my driver 270, but I don't miss by 1/4 of that distance (67.5 yards). The wildest 100-shooting golfers are about +/- 10°. Their average is about 7°. 80-golfers are around 6°. 70 golfers probably about 5°. PGA Tour pros are around 3.5°. So 10% of those numbers are 0.7, 0.6, and 0.5°, with 0.35° for PGA Tour players. And yet, give each of them a full 1° (or  14% more accuracy for 100-golfers, 17% more accuracy for 80-golfers, 20% more accuracy for 70-golfers, and nearly 30% more accuracy for PGA Tour players… and they still come up short (or, at the PGA Tour level, only begin to break even). This means that the poll is biased, indeed, but in the opposite direction you think, @Marty2019. The poll could have said "would you choose 25% more accuracy or 10% more distance" and everyone (generalized to groups, not individuals) would STILL be better off choosing the distance. The only "trick" is that people value accuracy way, way too much, to the point where many are happy to take only a 10% improvement in accuracy while even a 25% improvement still can't account for the added value of driving the ball an extra 10% farther.
