Have a nice cart bag but want to walk

Recommended Posts

I got a nice Callaway golf bag that's cart style a couple years ago before I was serious about golf or knew what I was buying

It stands up OK on most turf but has tipped over. I'm pretty strong so carrying it isn't that big of a deal

Should I use it or try to find some kind of stand for converting cart bags to walking bags? Or should I just sell it and buy a lighter bag with a built in stand for walking the course?

Thanks for any comments

I have a ping cart bag as well as a hoofer carrying bag. I find it easy to switch my clubs from one to the other, usually will wait and clean the clubs and transfer. Its been raining so much that it is almost faster to walk than to do the cart path only.
Imo I would buy a new carrying bag. After 18 holes you will find it easier to have a double strapped bag that is smaller than a cart bag.

If you want to carry your bag, then sell the old and buy new. My recommendation would be ping (though i do not own one). I would definately not buy a walter hagen carry bag. If you have questions of bags, feel free to ask me as i do know a lot about them.
If you do not want to carry your bag but want to walk, just get a cart thing. I do not know much about these, but they work.

Im actually looking for a new cart bag, one of the zipper's on mine is broken and its getting old and worn out in general. Im looking for a brand that isn't a club brand. Like Ogio, or Ozio is it?

I have an Ogio... whatever. Atlas comes to mind. It's done all I could ask of it. It's reasonably stylish, has good sized and accessible pockets, individual slots for clubs (and a 15th for... a ball retriever? I dunno).

You have mostly Callaway clubs. The bag I have is a great looking black-on-black Callaway that's very comfortable. Retailed for $170 when I bought it a couple years back and in great shape.

If you change your mind let me know

I have an Ogio Octane (I'm pretty sure that's what the model is) and it is extremely light and has a nice organizer system as well as a lot of pockets.

I have an OGIO Grom bag and it's the best bag I've used. I've had a Cart Bag and I have a Mizuno stand bag. I just find myself using the OGIO bag every time.
