How do you carry your golf bag?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Im just wondering because when i carry it like a backpack with both straps on my back it feels like the clubs are just going to fall out? do you just do one strap on shoulder? Just wondering..

If it feels like the clubs are falling out you should adjust the straps so the bag is at an angle so the clubs stay in. If I'm not walking too far I normally just use one strap. It really just depends. Sometimes both sometimes one.

It's been awhile since I had to do it, but I vaguely remember having the same problem and just adjusting the straps so the upper one is shorter, so the bottom of the bag is then lower.

im on the highschool team so we have to walk all the time. i carry it like a back pack with the clubs nearer to my right shoulder andthe lower part of the bag closer or a little bit lower than my back

i alternate, if i am climbing hills i like the bag on one shoulder, other than that i have both straps on.

I like to have mine hanging down at the small of my back.  I found the trick was to get it just high enough that it doesn't bounce when you walk, just sort of hangs there neutrally.  I have the straps adjusted so that it's basically level but just slightly higher to the club head end.  I tend to drape my arm over my irons to prevent chatter so I've never had much worry about clubs falling out.  I think the Woode top on my Ogio bag helps with that too.

 

If I'm just walking a short distance I'll just use a single strap for convenience.

Mostly on my back with both strap on until it annoys me then its only on one. That or a pullcart or electric cart

On my pushcart.  When I carried I used both straps...adjusted so that my clubs wouldn't fall out.

These days I carry my bag on a 3 wheeled cart.  But when I used to really carry my bag it was on my back with both straps.

Both straps with bag angled across the back if it's a hike after a long tee shot.  Between shorter shots, I position it under my arm with one strap, so I can rest my arm on it and keep the chatter down.  My setup ranges between 20 and 22lbs.  The thing I like about the double strap setup is that I can rotate the bag from under my arm to across my back, and poke my arm through the second loop on the fly, without having to put the bag down.  Bag is listed in my sig.

Couldn't have written it better myself! When the bag is balanced there in the small of the back it feels like I am almost carrying nothing. Adjusting the bag can be the tricky part. Easiest to do with the bag full and on your back with someone else making the adjustments.

 

I love the feel of being...mmmm for the lack of a better words, under load. The bag strapped on and heading down the first fairway is one of my favourite feelings in golf.

I must be close in stature to the Sun Mountain factory mannequin. I've never had to adjust a Sun Mountain bag. I'm on my 4th one since 1992. I have an old Ogio (really old - stands too vertically on the ground - it falls over if you look at it too quickly) and Izzo (with original Izzo double straps of course) and they fit like a glove too.

 

Last year my back was starting to bug me before golf season. I think it was anxiety, because carrying a bag cleared it up right away.

 

Regarding clubs wanting to fall out - I've seen that with some unltralight single strap bags and with Mizuno carry bags (the one with removable storage).

Two straps is a back saver...  Just readjust the straps so that it is tilted up and not parallel to the ground...  You can easily walk 18 that way.

Over one shoulder like a sack of potatoes.

with this bag set up. Ogio Schling. Very comfortable. I almost exclusively walk AND carry. I do have a Sun Mountain push cart but this bag makes carry easier.http://thesandtrap.com/b/accessories/ogio_grom_stand_bag_review
