What's a good light golf bag?

Recommended Posts

Cossackred    0

My bag right now is a beast! I'm looking for something that isn't huge and doesn't feel like I'm lugging around a large travel suitcase. I liked the last nike bag I had, but it went out with the clubs and now I'm looking fo a nice quality light bag. Suggestions?

thanks

You need to give a little more information. How many clubs do you want to carry in this bag? Will you be walking, riding, or some of both? For a light weight bag you can start with the Sun Mountain 3.5 or the Titleist Light Weight bag. There are so many good bags out there though.

Ok, no problem. If I'm walking I'll have my pull cart, so I guess I don't need the full shoulder strap setup, but a single shoulder strap would be nice. Not sure if smaller light bags are harder to strap in on a cart, but I'd like to go on a cart too. The kick stand things too for when I'm just at the range too.  Eventually I'd like to carry 5 ,6 ,7 ,8 ,9 , PW, AW, SW, 4 Hybrid, Driver and Putter. So there's 11, and maybe 3 wood so 12 clubs.

thanks!

I have a Mizuno AeroLite IV Bag , it works well so far as it has plenty of space for my clubs etc and looks nice.  The only thing is the shoulder strap, it has some kind of foam insert.  I usually carry it on one shoulder and after about 5 rounds it squished to a point that it will no longer go back to normal and is therefore not as comfortable as it was initially.

Not as high tech, but very, very classy are the bags from McKennon and Mackenzie. MacKenzie does make a ballistic nylon version of their classic Walker for around $200. I think it is available through thewalkinggolfer blog and possibly directly from MacKenzie, though not listed on their website.  Both McKennon and MacKenzie make classy handsewn leather walkers in virtually any color you want. They are beautiful but unfortunately about $650-700. They are on my wish list but too expensive right now.

What's your price range? for the money, I'd say Ogio has some nice bags but the feet are a bit small (can dig into soft turf). Every club OEM has at least one good candidate (I liked the Cleveland and PING bags but not their colour schemes).  My choice was a Sun Mountain four.5, because of the club arrangement, and being familiar with previous versions. It was a little pricey though.

My price range is between $100-$175. I don't want a "super nice bag". But I'd take something between 2.5 and 4 pounds.So far the Sun Mountain Swift X is looking nice. I like the shoulder straps, the kick stand, the colors available, the weight, and the color.

I'm stuck right now between buying the new bag, or getting a 4 hybrid, I can only get one at this time. It's just my bag now has the cingle shoulder strap and is really big and bulky. Switching from graphite irons to steel irons added some weight too.

    • Hi everyone,

      Attached is my winter training plan (The attahcement is coloured in its full glory).  TI am working on changing my swing to a new style (Moe Norman style single plane) so need to work on putting, full swing and pitching.  I have set it up as block periodized with 7 week mesocycles.  In the weeks that say technical those will be primarily slow work trying to hammer down the finer points of the skill followed by a technique week where I add more constraints to make it more game like followed by a week that will primarily game like with lots of constraints (ie diff targets, hitting it shorter longer etc.)  My chipping and pitching is the best part of  my game so it got one cycle while full swing and putting got two.  Putting is the worst part of game so thats why put it closest to the start of the season so I could peak that right before the season starts.

      If you are somebody who knows about periodization or just have some advice on whether what I have done here will work to improve all aspects of my game in the long term I would appreciate it.  I've thrown everything I know about periodization, distributed learning and interleaving at it from my teaching background.  I'm hoping others might give me their honest opinion on my plan.  I am only going on what I have read and researched so any comments and criticism is welcome.

      Thanks. Copy of Annual-Competitive-Plan-Blank-Template.xlsx
    • Let me offer a couple of suggestions that may not make sense at first. I do not think it is a good idea for heavier people to run. One it is hard on the body. You are pounding down on the knees and joints. Believe it or not you can increase your resting heart rate by deep breathing. Mine is between 38 and 43. I do Yoga and practice Deep breathing. Now I have been doing this for many years, but I suggest going to youtube and find a video on deep breathing  and start a practice. If you want to drop some weight change your diet. Eat more salads and plant based foods. Hope this helps
    • I meant that my hands don't have to follow each other and aren't locked together when off the club. I was able to roll my left wrist a bit over the top and it is not affecting my right hand. I am, however not locking my fingers as much anymore. They're still locked, but not as pronounced.
    • iPhone 8 will be on display in stores tomorrow. Also ATP podcast and their food talk, thought I'd post it.
    • If your hands move independently that could cause some inconsistencies in your swing?
