Looked at both of these bags today and am very confused as to which one to get. I ride a cart most the time but want a stand bag for the range and its usefulness. The titleist looked more cart friendly but I liked the pockets for the hoofer more. Has anyone used these in carts? Or could tell me which they like more. Thanks I'm advance for any help
2013 ping hoofer vs 2013 titleist lightweight stand bag

I had the 2012 Hoofer and I hated it. The light weight makes it a small bag. I don't carry 14 clubs and I had problems with clubs jamming in the bag, in and out. After thrashing a couple of expensive putter grips I bought a cart bag with a putter well. The Hoofer also moved around a lot on the cart, couldn't cinch the straps tight enough to keep it steady. I usually ride so it made sense for a bigger bag. I will be doing more walking this year so I'll be buying another stand bag for just that and move clubs around as necessary but it will definitely be a bigger bag with 14 individual slots. I don't care about the weight.
We used PING Hoofers when I was in high school and I really liked them... they are an awesome carry bag in my opinion. However, if you are going to be riding the majority of the time, I'd go with the Titleist. The Titleist bags are made by Sun Mountain and I've found from my own experience that they fit on carts better.
Some may not like the 4 series because it can be a little tight with clubs but I don't have a problem.
if your not walking with it on the course, you don't need a stand bag. you will get more benefit from a cart bag. for the range, they have stands to put your bag. it is useless for you to have a stand bag if your don't carry it on the course. But out of those 2 i would go with Ping hoofer every time. that was my team golf bag in high school and college. nothing beats it, definitely my stand bag of choice for life.
