Walkers, What Bag Do You Carry?

Recommended Posts

I have walked in the past but tore my achilles a few years ago and am just now feeling up to doing it again. I always enjoyed it but my bag is only a 7 divider so I got a lot of club rattle which I'm sure isn't great for the heads. I'm definitely going for a 14 way this time but curious what all the walkers out there carry? I've been looking for a week or so online and no brand or style is really standing out to me. Also, does anyone use the club clips? I have read both positive and negative reviews online so not sure if they are worth trying.

When I carry my full set of clubs, I use a PING Hoofer (5-way divider), I think it's a 2017 or 2018 model. The clubs get a little crowded/bound up because the bag doesn't have full length, 14-way dividers but not a big deal for me. My iron club heads get pretty beat up hitting off public course fairways/rough, so I'm not concerned about the nicks and dings from bag chatter.

When carrying a partial set (8-10 clubs), I use a Callaway Hyperlite bag with a 3-way divider, which is just about perfect for 9 clubs, and gets a little crowded with 10 clubs.

Aside from clubs, I have a pretty minimal bag, maybe 3 sleeves of balls, towel, a water bottle, and assorted accessories like tees, ball markers, pitch mark repair tool, etc.

I've used a Sun Mountain Four5 with 14-way, full length dividers for the past 5 years or so.  No complaints at all.  I think I'm going to try the Three5 this year though, without the 14-way.

Same here. I haven’t carried my bag walking a round in years.

I was leaning Sun Mountain they've got a good look and seems like plenty of storage. Did yours come with full length dividers or did you buy the inserts?

Yeah that's an option but I actually like carrying my bag. Maybe in a decade or so I'll move to the hand cart.

At one time when I walked, and carried, I used what was called a day bag. It was designed for 6-8 clubs. Had dual. Shoulder straps.  It suited me quite well because I rarely would use all 14 clubs when using my larger, full bag of clubs. 

If I ran into a situation where I needed a club I didn't have, i would manipulate another club to get the shot done. 

I have seen golfers with some sort of non golf specific bag with very few clubs in it. Almost looked like it was home made, with maybe 4, or 5 clubs in it. They were pretty good golfers too.. 

These days when I walk, I have a Tour Edge staff bag, 14 clubs, and a Clicgear trolley. I still hardly ever use all 14 of my clubs during a round.

I have a bag I can carry, but prefer a two-wheeled hand cart I can pull.  Saves me time and unless you have to cross a ditch, is easier.  Currently using a Decathlon bag and trolley.

Have a set of club clips on an older bag.  Got it about two decades ago and used it on a bag so that the clubs didn't rattle.  Not bad at all, provided your clubs stay in place.  The only thing is you are looking at about 7 to 8 clubs across, so it might be a tight fit in your bag.

I've got the Titleist lightweight cart bag (14 divider), but I do not carry. Push cart mafia. I don't think that it would be too heavy of a bag, but during the summer I like to get 36 in on the weekends so I have the push cart. And since I already have the push cart, I use it every time

Big Maxx Ocean

Its a bit small for 14 clubs but other than that it’s pretty good

Old Ping Hoofer from 2013.  Ping bags are the only ones I’d ever buy.

They come with full-length 14-way dividers.  https://www.tgw.com/golf-bags/golf-stand-bags/sun-mountain-2019-45-ls-14-way-stand-bag

 

I got a Clicgear this year too but I almost never use it.  I find it significantly less strenuous to carry than to push.

Also in the "walk but don't carry" department.  Sun Mountain cart I got from a friend when she gave up golf.  I recently went back to an old (2008) Ogio Grom, the classic Wood-e dividers if that means anything to you.  It has a large pocket whose zipper doesn't work, but it still works better for me than my leggy bag (that I really like otherwise because it has my club's logo on it).

I'm still using the Ping Hoofer we got at the '15 Newport Cup. The straps can be a bit finicky, but otherwise it's a great bag.

Slightly related, I use a cligear push cart.  I think it is the 2.5+ model.  Love it.  No shame in using a push cart; it allows me to use a big bag and throw all my crap in there.

I carried for a long time but have switched to a sun mountain speed cart. Wife uses one too. But I just got a new bag that is without a doubt the best bag I've had for a long time.

    • Does it have to be beating them?  A very fond memory of mine, from about two years into my time playing golf, was playing with a much better player and matching his score on three holes (two pars and a birdie).  I am 100% certain he beat my scores on the remaining holes.  Just the same, the (much much much) better player was super encouraging to me the whole day, but I particularly remember him complimenting those three.  
    • Day 46.  If today is Tuesday, this must be Belgium speed sticks day.  Protocol one in my back yard this evening.  Green at the end was 113, a new record.  Although it occurs to me, I'm supposed to continuously set new personal bests. 
    • So with it being the offseason still, I find myself reading and watching a lot of topics on the sport. Lately i came across Scott Fawcett and his strategy for teebox decisions. YouTube has a few videos of his but basically, for people who drive it over 270 pretty consistently, gameplanning should consider any trouble that is within a 70 yard dispersion. Now I already have gamegolf so i can see some dispersion patterns but I obviously dont tag the shots where I completely lose a ball so data is missing. I decided to go to a sim bay using a GCQuad and did a 15 shot driver test. In the end I averaged 268 off the tee in total distance. However off those 15 shots....3 were massive misses of 45, 52, and 60 yards offline. In real life at my home course and most trees courses I play those are lost balls with bad penalties applied. They would only be slightly salvageable at a course with adjacent fairways really. I would say when you look at my gamegolf rounds, the GCQuad result of 3/15 being lost/OB is accurate. So it made me start wondering as someone who has read LSW and Every Stroke Counts and understands advancing the ball far but safely.....how wide of dispersion is considered unusable for a driver? Until my swing improved would I be better off statistically going down to my 16* mini driver or just 21* hybrid? ( next time I do the simulator I was going to do dispersion tests for those)
    • While it may seem like a good idea, you can't just "factory reset" your swing. Better to just focus on a priority and make that better. Rather than trying to achieve a certain kind of swing, just improve on what you currently have.
    • OK -  let me make one final post on this as this horse is well and truly beaten. Just so that I'm fully clear on where you stand in the context of this particular discussion.  Please indulge me. 1. What they DID matters. 2. Why we THINK they did it doesn't matter. 3. Your (and my) opinion of what they did or why they did it is irrelevant 4. The only relevant discussion is the penalty for the infringement. 5. A person's opinion of the character any of the people under discussion has nothing to do with the thread. 6. Anything beyond that is essentially moot. Is that a fair summation?
