I Bought a 'Moon' Bag!


Recommended Posts

Recently I've been playing with only half a dozen or so clubs, and I've also been checking out some of the very short courses around the area, to focus on short game and approach shots.  I've not felt inclined to trundle a trolley around, and my old pencil bag has broken straps and can only be carried like a suitcase.  Yesterday, after walking with me for 18 holes, my partner said: you really should get yourself a new bag.  So we popped into the shop, and there I found a thing that is apparently called a "moon bag".

It's sort of floppy, if there are no sticks in it, and it doesn't have long legs that pull/rotate out - instead it has sort of "ears" that are a couple of inches long, so you lay the bag down and the clubs provide longitudinal structure, and the ears prop it up.  It has a very nice carrying strap, and it waterproof, and has some useful pockets and stuff.  I'm quite excited by it!  I'll see if I can take some pictures later 🙂

I wish Ping would revive that simple pencil bag. Like a basic Sunday bag with legs. No frills.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I think if Ping would make their Moonlite bag with a spine and some sort of stand, it would be awesome. I had a Moonlite for awhile, but since it doesn't have any stand mechanism, and my home course tends to stay wet even in dryest parts of the year, it collected too much mud/grass. I use a Callaway Hyperlite for partial bag rounds, which has a spine and a mini-stand, but I would love a high-quality pencil bag with full length legs.

Have you ever seen the Sunday Golf bags?  I think they make a bag similar to what you’re describing.

If this is the bag, 2.2 lbs.

@Dornenglanz is this the one?


With a self-balancing strap system and waterproof technology, the Titleist Premium Carry Bag is exactly what you've been looking for. Shop the Premium Carry Bag.

That looks cool and useful. My only question is does it get all wet in the grass? Because if it does then slinging it across your back would likely get the seat of pants all wet and really, who wants to have wet britches?

That's a really cool looking bag, and exactly what I have been trying to find for rounds with 6-8 clubs.

I picked up one of the new ping L8 bags they re-released.  Fantastic and easily under the 5lb listed weight.  

Almost as nice as my US made original from the mid 90s...but still a very decent bag for walking the course.

The Moon bag looks fun. I use a Sun Mountain 2.5 would not need a Moon Bag. Had I not bought that bad yes. Would work for half bag round.

    • And if there were, as @boogielicious points out, would it be reasonable to expect anybody to be able to play both at a time? Of course not - that idea is absurd.
    • Oh man, I would LOVE for one of those guys to say that under oath. But at the end of the day, not one of those guys in that lawsuit said they were leaving for money.  They were leaving for a "better schedule", to "spend more time with their families", or "to grow the game of golf."  They were also aware that LIV was an international organization, the LIV website literally calls themself an "International Golf Series."  They were aware of the format at the time they joined, they were aware of the schedule.  They were also made very aware of what the penalty would be from the PGA Tour if they joined.  They had all of that information in advance, and made a choice.  Now to come back and say that? Understand you're playing devils advocate, but that argument coming from these professionals should have no legs to stand on in a legal setting.
    • Playing devils advocate here because I can't comprehend what its like to be a millionaire and want to be a zillionaire - but I think the point is there is no competition in LIV just money. Thus still no meaningful choice to them. LIV can pay but can't provide competition, PGA Tour has the competition but doesn't pay that well. Most PGA Tour players are not making a ton of money, especially compared to other US sports.
    • Day 650: Played 18 this morning at North Kingstown. Driver was dreadful. I’m at a loss as to what is different on the course.
    • Historically, I've had difficultly getting the ball off the deck with woods. I've new Callaway Mavrik MAX 3, 5, and 7-woods.  Haven't swung the 3w, yet, nor have I yet played the other two, but I was able to get the ball off the deck much more easily, in range practice, with the 5 and 7-woods than I had with my previous woods. You might also consider hybrids.  I couldn't hit my 4i worth a darn. Replaced it with a Mavrik 4h on a "I wonder...?" impulse and I'm able to hit that well.  Again: At least in range practice. Whether any of those improvements will translate to play remains a question I hope to answer this season. My main concern with replacing anything under my 5i with woods or hybrids would be play out of the rough--from where I far too often find myself playing
