Stand Bag - How Many Dividers

I want to get a stand bag and wonder how many dividers are the most practical.  My current cart bag has 14 dividers, but they are not lined up in rows and can make it hard to find the club I am looking for. Some of the new bags I have looked at with 14 dividers look like they will keep my clubs more organized because of they way they are lined up, but I can't tell if I will like it or not until I get my clubs in the bag.  Or should I look at  bags with only 5/6/7 dividers instead?  What works best on the course?

I am considering this Maxfli 2019 Honors Plus Golf Stand Bag which is on sale for $85 right now.

My favorite top-level organization I saw was in my old Ogio cart bag.  There were four one-club pieces on the left hand side, and three wells for multiple clubs, plus a spot for the putter.  If I had that bag today, the left side would be driver, 4W, 3H, 4H, and then the wells would be 5-6-7, 8-9-W, wedges.

 

I think they have the same organization for a stand bag.

I used to use an Ogio with that divider - the Woode system. I liked it a lot, but I don't think they use it anymore.

Currently I use the Ping Hoofer we got at the 2015 Newport Cup, which I like a lot. It has two dividers on the top (one has my driver and putter, the other my fairway wood and hybrid), two middle dividers (3-4-5 and 6-7-8) and one at the bottom (9-PW-SW-LW). That's been working pretty well.

At one point I had a bag with a four-way divider. That was useable but got a little annoying.

I really like 14-way dividers. This way my clubs are exactly where I expect them to be when I want to pull them (I'm the same way with my tool bag). I use a Sun Mountain C130s bag.

This works really well except for when you buy a really nice Mizuno bag for your wife and set up with all the clubs in easy to find locations but at the end of the round they are all over the place including having multiple clubs in one slot and none in the others and the clubs are filthy because she doesn’t clean them even though I got her a really nice club cleaning towel and brush. This doesn’t bother me MUCH!😜

I like 14 way dividers too, but I use a push cart so weight is not much of an issue. I do have another carry bag with 6 dividers and it works pretty well too.

I like this! How hard is it to look for a number?! Jesus! How spoiled have we become? 

Made me laugh.  An attorney friend (attention to detail, right?) pulls his 6 iron on the short par 4 #15 at our club, to lay up short of the water and still have a wedge in.  Invariably he hits a shot high and short and then realizes he's pulled his 9 iron!  Great guy but that iron selection kills him there.  Had to say that in case he's reading this.

Hope she tips well.

My current bag has a 5-way divider and my previous bag had a 6-way divider.  I think these are more than enough.  I understand people who want 14-way dividers, but 3 to 4 clubs max in a divider is simple enough.  For me weight is not an issue as I use a trolley or a caddie.  I have literally never carried my own bag.  One of the advantages of cheaper labour I guess

How does this happen??? How does someone look down and not see the difference in length and loft? I've heard of it happening before, but I honestly have difficulty believing it.

Oh, but it is true. Personally, I don't think I could make that mistake, unless I hadn't checked the number and it was one club off. But for John it is a 3 club loft difference and probably an inch and a half shaft length. But it happens to him.  In the field of law John is very discerning. Not so much on the golf course.

    • I think I’m playing my wedges too far forward in my stance. That could explain the occasional fat shots and why I tend to hit the ball high off the face out of the rough.

    • Ok guys here’s the deal. I thought It would be cool to start a movie quote thread where every post is a movie quote but we carry a conversation. Similar to the numbers thread theme. Responses should be a movie quote but correspond to the previous quote. It will essentially be a discussion that carries on using only movie quotes. The conversation can carry on or even switch to a new one based on the quotes. But they have to make sense to the conversation at hand. I’ll start with the first quote: ” Houston, we have a problem.’
    • Day 91 (26 Sep 21) - While still at the beach, grabbed the old 9i and a couple of balls and spent about an hour in the never ending sand trap….well, it wasn’t that bad as the sand offered everything from powder (buried/fried egg) to packed (sitting pretty) to flat lies to below/above the feet lies.  Enjoy these sessions as they also give great feedback on the swing arc, especially the packed stuff.
