I'm looking at a 14 way divider bag.  Probably going with the Sun Mountain four 5.  Are there any other solid options for a stand bag with full 14 way dividers?  I have a White Taylormade Burner 2.0 bag now and do not like my clubs getting stuck on each other when using a cart.

Looking for suggestions!


Thanks!!!

The Four 5 is a nice bag. My brother uses one and he loves it. The slightly older Ogio bags offer the Woode club management top which isn't exactly a 14 way top but quite nice non the less. If your looking for a cheaper alternative, you could always buy the club tubes that you can insert into your bag creating a 14 way bag.

I have a friend that has the four 5 -  He speaks highly of it.  Its a nice looking bag, too.

Titleist makes a nice 14 way divider bag, but like all Titleist gear, is very expensive!

If you're carrying or for the cart -- it's tough to beat the four-five if you own one bag. The leg closure for carts is a great idea and will save your bag.

Of course, I have an old SM Supercart Lux Bag and a 3.5; so I am looking at the zero g or swift x-g for carry when the time is right.

I have the Woode divider in my Ogio Vaporlite. It's definitely "good enough" and it's better than a lot of the dividers out there at the moment but it's not full length and clubs can still get stuck being taken out or put back in. I like the look of the divider on the Bag Boy Revolver but it looks pricey!

Thank you for the suggestion, I put my bag on C-List.  I may just get some tubes for it if I don't sell it.  That revolver bag is sweet!  I don't know that I want a full time cart bag, i'd rather have the option to carry.

Thanks for the help!

My brother had the same needs for a bag as you, and went with this Ogio Grom bag: http://www.tgw.com/customer/category/product.jsp?SUBCATEGORY_ID=15975∏_ID=14476951&CID;=MC&LNK;=MC-BSH&mr;:referralID=e299dc40-d4bd-11e0-891e-001b2166c2c0

I see the clubs get stuck a little here and there when we're out playing, but for the most part he's been very happy with his purchase. Good luck in your search!

Thanks for the suggestion.  That is a sharp looking bag!  I might have to check it out.  The only downfall is it doesn't have the full dividers.  I imagine it works better than the bag i have now.

If you ride make sure you get a 2011 and newer Four 5.  They have the cart friendly bases.  The older ones don't and, consequently, don't fit well in riding carts.

Also - Titleist bags are made by Sun Mountain so they're the exact same bag except for the Titleist logos and the carrying straps.

I went out yesterday and looked at the Sun Mountain bags -  They are great, and the product looks superior to the other bags that the big name brands slap their name on!

I agree the Sun Mountain Four 5 carry bag is probably one of your best options I hear a ton a good reviews from golfing buddies on this one. But another option you could always look at Swift X carry bag or Nike Performance carry both look pretty good.

I have an older ogio edge.  I use the tubes to keep the clubs separate.  Now I need to anchor the tubes down so they don't start to come up when taking a club out.  Even my putter grip grabs on a fold of cloth about 8" down.  I'll keep modding the bag until it is perfect. Do I need to work on a smooth(er) club withdraw motion?

It depends on where you expect a club to be when reaching for it. I looked at bags yesterday (Golf Town - Red Deer) and other than the SM four5, the only ones I liked were either a club brand I don't care to promote, or the divider arrangement was just plain ridiculous.

I have an OGIO Syncro that's I bought last year and it has 15 slots with an external putter well.  It might be a 2009 model but I'm not sure.  I love the way it looks and the pocket arrangement is OK but not overly spacious.  The zipperless ball pocket is great and one of my favorite features.  But here's some negatives that I've encountered and you should consider when looking at 14 ways.

1.  The club slots are too small.  I use jumbo grips and I'm constantly snagging my clubs taking them in/out of the bag.

2.  The external putter holder is strategically placed to push my mallet putter head against the graphite shafts of my hybrids.  I have to be real careful how the hybrids are positions to be sure the head cover protects the shafts or leave the slot open next to the external putter holder.

3.  The separate club dividers still don't keep the grips from adjacent clubs from snagging on each other which gets worse if I put too much in the pockets....like my XXXL rain suit.

In retrospect, I wish I had gone with Woode system or a larger 14-way cart bag.  My next cart bag is going to the biggest son of a b%*

    • Ask yourself why you play.  For me, I play for a bunch of reasons: I like being outdoors, in beautiful spaces; I like spending peaceful time with my son; I enjoy the challenge of the game (even though I am still very much a beginner); I enjoy the feeling of hitting good shots (they do happen sometimes), and playing a good hole; I enjoy the discipline of persevering with a very challenging thing, and staying mindful, and trying to keep on top of the frustration.  For all these reasons, whether I play or not is not related to my score.  I broke 100 two or three times earlier in the summer, but this week I've been playing as badly as I've played since I started, but the reasons I play are still met by going and playing, so I won't quit. Sounds to me like your enjoyment is closely tied to your score and (if I may be so bold) you ego.  You don't like the feeling of having gone backwards, and you're not scoring well.  If those are the reasons you play (you like scoring well, and you like feeling proud / identifying as a single digit handicap golfer), then unless you're prepared to work through the reasons for your poor scoring, or reframe your experience of the game, you probably should go and do something else.
    • Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the advice. Let me clear up one though - I'm only 39 years old.  That seems to make quitting even more valuable to me because I should theoretically get decades of enjoying not golfing. 🙂 
    • In august, i bought a Datrek Super Lite Stand Bag on line from Global Golf. Sunday, while playing, The strap on the golf cart came loose and the bag and clubs fell off. One of the stand legs snapped off. Monday, I contacted Dynamic Brands, which is the parent company of Datrek. They also own Bag Boy, Burton, and a couple other makers of bags, carts, etc., to see if they had replacement parts available. The lady asked what happened, and how old the bag was, and said they would handle it under warranty. She sent me an e mail with the required information- proof of purchase, serial # and pictures of the bag., and said it would take a couple of days to process.. i sent them  the required info, and at about 4:30 PM, i received another email saying that they were sending me a warranty replacement. No questions asked. I was impressed with the promptness and courtesy with which his situation was handled, since i may get my new bag in time to use it in the club championship this weekend. No muss, No fuss.
    • I'm on an alternating cycle of couldn't hit the ball much better one day to couldn't hit it much worse the next. Last week shot a 43 on 9 holes, by far my best 9 this year. I don't think I could have hit the ball much better, driver or irons. Lost a few shots around the green and a cpl 3 putts, but 43 is a terrific 9 for me.    Literally the next day, went to play 9 somewhere else, and it was like my first time out. Fat shots, topping it, driver was wildly erratic. Nothing went right. In fact I ended up quitting on the 5th hole I was so frustrated. Nevermind Id lost 10 balls off the tee.  I hate golf.  But I'll probably play later today.
