Which cart bag

14 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, so I think I have everything I need to get started.....just need a cart bag as Im using a stand bag on my trolley at the mo and it doesnt sit too well. I have a longridge tri-cart, but dont know if all bags fit all trolleys or which trolley to get. I have about £100 to spend and dont mind 2nd hand from Ebay etc, just want a decent bag.

Titleist Lightweight Cart bag is great. 14 way dividers and a racked top that presents the clubs nicely when on a cart. Putter well (15 slot) and more. One complaint is the towel ring is only on the right side. Wish it had two because my bag is always on the left side of the cart as I face the bags. A left ring would allow the towel to hang to the outside.

Sun Mountain's version (C130) is a little boxier looking but has two rings and a slot for the cart strap. They make the Titleist bag.

JUST NOTICED YOU SAID TROLLY -- which I think of as a pull cart. I have no idea if the bags above will work with a trolly. They will work great with a buggy (I think that is what you call riding carts).

Ogio makes some really light weight cart bags, they are actually lighter than some of the carry bags.  Can't remember the name of the one that would be perfect fit for a push cart, but I'm thinking that will be my next bag as I don't carry anymore I use a 3 wheel push cart.

I currently have a lightweight cart bag from Ogio....and it's nice overall. It's appearance and the zipperless ball pocket are my favorite features. But my next cart bag is going to be different.   I will ignore any cart bags advertised as "lightweight", "compact", or another other descriptor that should not be applied to a cart bag.  My next cart bag will be very spacious, have large club slots, an external putter slot that keeps the putter well-separated, and plenty of pockets of all sizes.  The damn thing is going to be in a cart or on a trolley (as you say) so I don't care about weight.  I want room and club separation....and lot's of it.

I agree on the size/weight etc of the bag I just want room for everything and the seperate putter well is a must I think. I have narrowed it down to Powakaddy Deluxe or one of Taylormades larger bags, probably the

Taylormade Catalina 3.0 2012

Features:
New 14-Way Stadium Design Top with integrated Handle (19.1cm x 27.9cm)
Integrated Putter Well
11 Front Accessible Pockets
Large insulated Cooler Pocket
TPR Anti-Slip Cart Strap Pad
Internal Crush Proof Construction
Soft Touch Front Handles
2.9 kg
2 FAS-TEK Receivers

Seems to have it all

I currently use the  Callaway Org 14 Sport Cart Bag.  I would recommend veering away from this one.  The clubs get stuck going in and coming out and the bag is quite heavy.  I did hear that the Titleist Lightweight Cart bag is quite nice though.

IMPORTANT!!!!!!!

Do NOT buy a Titleist lightweight cart bag if you use a pull cart. The front of the bag slopes down and there is no possible way of securing the straps. I had one and tried all sorts of methods and it can't be done. Had to return it.

Pity, because it's a nice bag if it's vertical.

If you need your bag waterproof in any way don't buy Powakaddy. The rain hood is designed in such a way that it leaves two decent sized holes letting water run down inside the bag (incidentally the design team at Powakaddy in a response email to me believe that the drain holes at the bottom of the bag combat this, so let the water in, it gets all your gear wet but hey, it drains away so that's OK).

I've enclosed a pic to show the flaw.

Why don't you just put that over the top rather than looping it underneath the handle? You could unsnap it if you needed to use the handle to put your bag in your car or something, but then the holes wouldn't be oriented under the handle and above the point where the bag stops.

    • There still seems to be a bit of a disconnect between his explanation of the situation and the shot that he actually played......just doesn't add up that he hit pretty much a perfectly paced shot with the "belief" that that ball was  sitting way down and maybe even slightly plugged.....just doesn't look to me that he was trying to gouge out a shot that is sitting way down........as Erik said on the first page, there is a huge difference between a ball sitting all the way down and one that is sitting up even a 1/4" 
    • So? I'll take what may be the minority view here… but so what? You said the kid was young, so I'm picturing, I don't know, a 7-year-old kid. At this point, the father's main "goals" should really just be "let the kid whack a few balls, see if he has some fun." What you see as "a few fundamentals" might overwhelm the kid. After all, look at the list you just posted and what sorts of corrections you'd have to make to fix all of those things… When I introduced @NatalieB to golf (granted, she was barely three), I cared about roughly three things: That she stood on the left side of the golf ball (righty clubs) That she put her left hand above her right hand That she had fun whacking golf balls "somewhere in the right general direction" That's it. Every "fundamental" that came after that was a result of her expressing a desire to get better. The last thing I'd have thought to do was to give her a list of a bunch of "fundamentals." That sounds like the opposite of fun. The most important thing a parent can do to help their kids develop a passion for golf is to make sure they have fun around golf (on the golf course, at the range, etc.), particularly early on.
    • Thanks for all the advice. Its definitely more a case of wondering if my distance is likely to increase rather than worrying about it.  At the moment I just want to keep working on a reliable and repeatable swing that gives me a straight shot.  Once I've got that I can think about other things. The point about not fully trusting the swing yet is not something I had thought about before, but I think there may be something in that - repetition and practice is the answer to that I guess. Those distances are already in yards I'm afraid :)
    • Kiawah Island is even worse, I'm sure… it's about a 30-minute drive under regular circumstances onto the island and out to the course, let alone during the PGA Championship.
    • I would like to add that you made sure to convert the meters into yards (add an extra 10% or so to the numbers), right?  Otherwise, those are respectable numbers for someone only started their golf journey. FWIW, as a 58 year old who started playing golf in their mid-40s, I don't have a lot of distance (driver 210-240y, 7i 130-140y and PW 95-105y), but I do enjoy the game very much, did take lessons and improved my swing considerably after I did.
