Hello everyone.

I am curious about golf bags.

I am wondering if the bag you have is the same brand as your clubs.

I know that you can buy whatever bag and whatever clubs you want but is it generally frowned on or in better taste to have the same brand as your clubs? Or at least close?

As for me I purchased some Ping irons and an Anser 4 putter.

But I prefer the looks of the Callaway Hyper-Lite 4.0 bag.

Just wondering what the general consensus is.

To each is own, but it doesn't bother me to use a bag that doesn't match your clubs. I have a Nike stand bag and use Mizuno irons, TaylorMade driver, Callaway 3 wood and Walter Hagen hybrids.

I do have a weird thing about wearing hats that are what I play though!

My bag only has the logo of an exclusive country club and the name of a millionaire on it. (From Play it Again Sports)

My bag is welcome where I am not.

Pick a bag you like that fits your needs and don't worry about who's logo is on it or if they match your clubs.  Someone will have something to say if you match your bag to your clubs or if you don't so easiest thing to do is not worry about what other people will think.

Nice.

I have a blank b/w stand bag with no name on it.  Got it new on ebay for $25-30.  It is made by "Precise".  Works great - and I personally prefer not having a brand or logo all over everything, including shirts and hats.  You know you pay extra for the brand, no matter who made the bag.  I do have a headcover and towel from my college to liven things up though.

In the past I have alway matched my bag to irons but after buying a Taylormade bag to match the Burner 2.0 irons this spring and quickly finding out I didn't like the irons and traded clubs, I searched for a bag that had all the features I liked. I ended up with a Nike tour II cart bag and really like it. I guess you can say I still l match since I play a Nike driver but you could always get a bag like a Bag Boy, Datrek or Sun Mountain and then it wouldn't matter at all.

Doesn't matter. I use a Sun Mountain bag because of the quality of the product and it's utility. Maybe try going that way if this is something that you are concerned about. That way you never need to think about it again. Same thing for Ogio.

I do like the Sun Mountain and Ogio stuff for sure. Seems like very high quality products.

But they are a bit more expensive than I can afford.

I will keep looking.

Thanks for your help everyone.

Some people like to have the same brand of bag as the brand of clubs they have, some dont care.  Personally, I wont own anything but a Sun Mountain or Ogio bag.  Theyre just that much better than any of the other brands of bags.

Its not as if theres some rule that your clubs and bag have to match.  I know some people who have Ping bags (because they are pretty nice bags) and dont own a single Ping club.  Ive also seen people have a Titleist bag and not a single Titleist club. (Titleist bags are made by Sun Mountain, BTW)  Its all in what you like.

Everybody knows that your handicap drops if your bag, irons and wedges match.

If golfers stopped doing this I might "shudder" have to buy new stuff.

I bought a Sun Mountain bag partly because it doesn't match and never will match the brands of any of my clubs.  This way any club i'll ever have will look good in my bag.

I think Sun Mountain and Ogio bags look better than the club maker bag brands anyway.  Plus they're better quality.

Personally, I gotta either have a bag that matches at least some of my clubs or a bag by a company that does only bags.  Last year I bought a Titleist 14 way stand bag and at the time the only Titleist club I had was a putter, which was fine with me.  I did end up switching out the irons a few months later with some Titleist sticks which made it even better.  When that bag got stolen I replaced it with Taylormade irons and a Sun Mountain bag.

My current bag is called a Lettermens Club II Cooler Bag.......it is blue & white with Univ. of Kentucky Logos on it....It definitely depicts my allegiance to the Univ. of Kentucky.

It all personal preference.  You can see my mix of clubs in my sig and I use an Ogio Syncro bag.  I love the bag and absolutely love the zipperless ball pocket.  I only wish they made it a little bigger so that it was easier to remove clubs with jumbo grips.  I am constantly snagging clubs if I don't pull them out perfectly straight.  Anyway, I don't care about anything matching.

I think you should go for whatever bag you like best that will suit your playing. Personally I don't think it really matter what the brand is. Yes, sometimes it does look a bit cleaner to have all the same brand but let's get real not that many people do that.

My bag does not match my clubs, although I wouldn't mind if it did.  I picked my bag (Slazzenger) mainly for function fist - most important to me was 14 way individual club slots.  Price second.  And color/style third.

I've been on the lookout for a new Nike bag.

    • From all I have read, any known long term effects of an mRNA vaccine manifests within the first two months. It does NOT affect genetic makeup since it never enters the nucleus.  Conditions/effects that manifest over longer periods of time are caused by repeat use/exposure at some frequency that builds up incrementally...like.. tobacco or your garden variety narcotics, lead, arsenic, etc. 
    • I read the whole thing. I am thinking a "whole enchilada" badge should be awarded!   Seriously, the experience is playing in a national NCAA championship. While D3 is not as competitive as D1 streaming live on the Golf Channel, it is still the national championship. While no one wants to see their kid card a double or triple to start their round, it is still the national championship.  Oh, and it is competition golf. Everyone knows what they signed up for. The player seemed to accept his fate, and the coach should know better. Sorry but even if you don't have a shot of advancing or winning, you still follow the rules and protect the field.     
    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
