New golf bag

13 posts in this topic

I got a new golf bag for Christmas this past year. It's what I asked Santa for and my wife overheard. I thought I'd love it. It sucks. I can not find a setup for my clubs that I like. I used to have a Bennington Quiet Organizer. I loved that. I still have it in the garage, but it's pretty bad. I think I'm going to tell my wife someone stole it. They left the clubs and balls. Just stole the bag. :-)

It's a typical 14 slot bag, so not sure where you're having difficulties.  Most people put their driver and 3W in top row, hybrids/irons in next rows and wedges in bottom row then putter.

Very similar to my lay out, in an exactly the same kinda way, took a while to get used to having putter at top of bag instead of bottom, and my driver being directly underneath the putter with hybrids/woods either side of driver, But it's a reverse cart bag and designed for easy access to clubs and pockets when strapped to cart! I use push cart so prob not ideal but I'm used to the lay out now!

The problem I have is when I use it with a push cart, all the irons are on top of each other. I guess that's normal. I've tried multiple setups and don't really like any. Right now I have the lofted iron in the front with the putter and progress toward the rear. I think I got used to the Bennington.

If you use a push cart often, that makes sense.  Bennington looks like a much better design for pushcarts.

Maybe I'll have a bag for push carts and one for electric carts. I don't want my wife to feel bad about the Christmas gift.

I have the Sun Mountain Sync bag and love it. I do have to prepare to use it on a buggy or Golf cart by switching around my clubs to make use of the forward facing pockets.  It is designed to be used on the Sun Mountain push cart.  Your bag looks like it is best suited for a buggy.  Have you tried setting up with your clubs reversed on your push cart?

I'll try reversing the clubs. I think the short irons may be hard to get out, but you never know.

I'm left-handed (but play RH golf) and my brain works differently than most.  You'd look at my club layout in my bag (same config as your new bag) and probably say WTF?

That said, I've found a 'snake' pattern started from top left puts the clubs in decent order according to usage.  Club lineup in bag looks like this:

L  >>>>  R

Driver, 3-wood, 5 wood

R >>>> L

4h, 5h, 6i, 7i

L >>>> R

8, 9, PW, AW

R >>>> L

54*W, Putter, 58* W

Granted, a new bag means taking some time to figure out where the clubs should go and how they fit in the bag.  If you look at mine, again, the clubs on the left side of the bag are most used in my game.  Maybe try setting yours up with that in mind and it'll help get them into an order that makes sense.

Dave, your driver and woods toward the back of the bag? There was a 180 yard par 3 I played today. I thought I grabbed my 5 iron, but grabbed the 7 iron because the 5 and 7 were in different rows but adjacent. Hit it great and couldn't believe it was 30 yards short of the pin until I looked at the bottom of the club.

Interesting thread. I put my clubs in the bag. Generally in the same place, but I don't worry about it too much. They're always there in the bag when I need one, and they have numbers on them so I can tell them apart. Cool bag though.

Makes sense to me,  and I'm a right hander.  Thanks

    • I don't think we're at the point where all that stuff can really be integrated quite yet. Too many competing standards and stuff right now. Soon. Not yet.
    • Of the six military guys I asked about it, five felt it was exactly the kind of thing they fought to protect and had no problem with it. The sixth said he thought it was disrespectful but said so is killing people and blowing shit up and the military does that itself. Have you polled enough of the military to see whether it was seen as disrespectful by the majority?
    • Of course the outrage is after the fact.  As it is with most things.  Are you stating you would have to personally witness something as it happens to be outraged or disagree with it?   I don't believe it is something that can be "proved" either.  I don't think it needs to be.  If the majority of the military feels it is disrespectful, than I tend to agree with that.
    • My house is dumb as a brick.  And 2x4 posts.  And drywall.  And paint.
    • No. Liking the entirety of your country, your government, etc. is not a binary state. You don't even like everything about your wife. Or children. Or golf. @Gunther, never one to disappoint with that crap. More below… You never give people enough credit. Guess what? You can support a person's right to protest while completely disagreeing with whatever they're protesting. It isn't. But your constant attempts to pigeonhole do more to divide than they do to gain understanding, find common ground, and discuss things intelligently. I'll call it like I see it - you're intellectually lazy when it comes to anything political. That's why I think you pigeonhole everything into "liberal" and "correct" (in your opinion). And hey, I tend to vote Republican. We're probably more alike than you imagine, politically… except that I try to look at things separately, when I do take the time to consider it, while you seem to want to just pigeonhole and spout. Others have said it, but you can't "prove" that it's disrespectful. It's just your opinion. And anyone else's. At the risk of making a post that's not "on topic" enough that I'd moderate it if it weren't my own post (though mods are and always have been free to moderate my posts as they see fit)… my thoughts on the matter include: I don't think it's disrespectful to sit. I think you should probably have a reason to sit, because if you garner attention for sitting you'd better have an answer as to why, not just "I don't know, stuff sucks here right now." He seems to have had a reason, so okay. Sitting is no different, IMO, than burning a flag. Protesting in front of Capitol Hill. If a "regular person" sits, nobody will care. A few people might say "what a jerk" in their minds, but they're not going to care if he has an issue. They will if a celebrity sits, so he used the fame to get his point across. I'm not entirely sure what he was protesting, so I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. I know people who support gay marriage but who oppose welfare. Or the opposite. IMO, things are rarely so clearly divided along party lines. I know military people who think what he did was terrible, and others who think it was a great expression of the freedom their fighting and work has allowed for. As usual, since it's politics, I don't give it a whole ton of thought. But what little thoughts I've given it are right there.
