Club Placement in Bag?

18 posts in this topic

Just wondering where you guys place your clubs in your bag. I am looking for some ideas. I have a stand bag if that makes a difference.

I put them in the slots in the top that are provided. I find they don't fit very well in the pockets my bag...JUST KIDDING.

I start at the top of my stand bag with Driver, 3 wood, hybrid and putter and then work my way down by threes to the wedges (two wedges in each of the two bottom holes). I see some people put their clubs in the reverse...never really understood that.

I now do like you say. I have four slots, so woods go in the top, middle right are short irons, middle left are long irons, bottom are wedges and putter. I used to do just the opposite (woods on bottom, wedges/putter on top) but this was damaging the wood shafts when the irons banged into them. The reason I did it that way to start was that it made it a bit easier to get the short clubs since I didn't have to reach under the longer clubs to find them.

The upside down bag setup made no sense to me the first time I saw it. Short iron heads rubbing continuously on the long iron and wood shafts? Duh.

I recently got a new 14-club divider bag, but I set it up the same as I did in this pic of my old bag. Woods in top slot; long irons in middle left, short irons middle right, wedges in bottom slot. I build an "external" putter tube for my putter.

I keep my woods up top; then 3-8 irons; with the 9 iron, wedges, and putter on the bottom. Basically from longest club to shortest club (top to bottom). This way the heads are not hitting as much as they would if the setup was reversed.

Pretty much my set up. I will say my new 14 slot bag had me scratching my head at first. But your mind slowly becomes grooved into it just like your golf swing.

My Ogio Grom bag got the Woode slots on the left side for woods, very useful.

Putter in its own slot on the top
4-5-6 irons below putter
7-8-9 on the next
PW-54-58 on the bottom
Driver at top on woode
3 wood
5 wood
Hybrid

The 3 iron I rarely use, sometimes change it for the hybrid.

Good info guys. Thanks. eltreams, what did you make your putter tube out of? And how did you attach it to the bag?

I bought one of those plastic organizer tubes, cut to fit the length of the putter, tapped off the bottom, and used cable/zip ties to secure it to the towel ring and to the plastic part at the bottom of the bag. See pic below for an idea (not the best pic, sorry).

On my new bag, I secured the tube with a cable/zip tie to the loop that holds the umbrella tie on the top, and the loop the secures the umbrella to the bottom of the bag. So...the umbrella rests against the bag, and the putter tube rests agains the umbrella.

Personally, I love having the external putter tube. You use your putter every hole, and it's nice not to have the grip rubbing against the bag or other club grips and it's nice not having to move around clubs to access the putter.

I personally have a 14-hole divider bag, and used to place all the clubs just like most of you guys are doing, but I found that it got to be a pain in the ass to dig out the 6 or 7 or 8 irons that happened to be smack in the middle of the bag, and that meant digging around through all the clubs heads to get to them. Maybe I'm just lazy.

So, now I arrange them with the driver in the middle-top slot, and my woods going down the middle, vertically. Then the shorter irons are staggered, evens and odds on each side, in the perimeter slots. That way, it's easy to grab a wood, since they are longer in the middle, but the irons are along the outside, so no bangin' around.

Interesting idea. I might have to try that when I get home.

I have an OGIO Vaporlite Bag and it has the WOODE Club system, If you haven't seen one check it out. It has 4 slots down the right side of the bag for woods and hybrids and then a small section at the top w/ stand deployed for your putter, then 3 even slots down the left for long irons on top then middle irons w/ wedges on the bottom. I love the way the bag carries and when I set it down it, Ilove the way it presents the clubs to me. Check one out.

Using the full length slots I start with driver at the back left and work my way to the right and then do the same on the next row.

etlreams, Thanks for the idea on the putter tube. I am a plumber, so I used a piece of 1 1/2" PVC pipe with a cap on one end. I painted it black and zip tied it on. I cant imagine not having it now.

Glad to hear it worked out for you. I, too, can't imagine not having the "external" putter tube. Good idea on the PVC. That will definately hold up better that the plastic divider tubes long term.

    • I had a hard time doing the hip thing. What happened was starting the swing with the arms. Now I start my swing by literally attacking with my right shoulder to the ball and just ignoring the club, hands, arms. The effect is, the hip is pushed out of the way, it just has to anatomically, the right elbow comes in before the body and you get in a position where you can give it smack with the right side.  So yes for me it is a start with the upper body the thing that is said to be a nono.  Its really just an approach from the other side to clear the hips. Worth a try. I love it.
    • When you say with the right shoulder you mean staying connected with the hips though? Not rotating the uper body 1st right? I really struggle with the legs / knees doing what they're supposed to.
    • Ok. I think I made big progress now. I practised swinging with speed yesterday (without hitting the ball) and measuring club head speed. What I noticed is that rotating my hips and body faster did nothing for speed. But keeping my wrists and arms loose and do everything from there gave at least 10 mph more speed. Also I worked on my timing. I measured 80 with my 7 iron, and around 85 with my 5. Could not measure my driver at home though. Today at the range I hit the ball around 200-220 yards with my seven iron which is pretty insane compared to how far hit it before. I was doing this on hard practise mats though. So on the fairway this might be less. Also I used a lot of lag. So my 7 iron probably behaved more like 6 or even 5 iron. Ok. Now for the driver. I did some corrections to my hand position and stance. No slice anymore which of course makes the ball flight straighter and longer. I hit is pretty consistently 220 yards. Which is pretty interesting since this is NOT a lot of longer than I hit my 7 iron. I also tried my Hybrid (its like a 4 iron) but did only gain about 10m of distance and more much inconsistent shots. Now I took your advice and tried a 3 wood. Wow you were right. I hit the ball 240 yards.  Whats is all means to me that I could probably hit the driver 250 yards or more but at the moment I still have a swing problem with this. I should mention that I use a very cheap driver from a complete Wilson set (whole set around $300). Maybe my timing with arms and wirst are just wrong with the driver.  Could also be the driver itself. But I doubt it since I hit the 3 wood from the same Wilson set much longer it seems.
    • do the hipslide by attacking with right shoulder, some find it easier. Try it it also presses the hip away just passively. 
    • Hopefully won't get into trouble for bumping an older thread but this is awesome. I'm working on hipslide, infact I'm obsessed with hipslide. I'm a s&t player so the hipslide is key part of the process for me at the moment. Any of you high HC players onto any feelings that help you get this down?  Finding it so hard to nail. I'm a feeling player and the info the coach has given me all makes total sense but unless I can get a feeling to work towards its hit and miss.  Cheers.
