Finding the Right Golf Bag to Fit Your Needs

Choosing a golf bag is a personal decision based on looks and detailing, but even more so it's a decision based on your own circumstances. There is a golf bag for everyone, but first decide on how you need it to perform for you. The bag is a means of holding and transporting your clubs; so how do you need it to function? Listed here are the types of bags and what they're most often used for: Carry If you're walking, you'll want a lightweight bag with a wide padded strap. Try it on in the store with golf clubs in it to see if it feels properly centered and comfortable to you. The material should be light like nylon or canvas and should be just big enough to hold the clubs, balls, tees, and towel you'll need for play. The bag should also have it's own built-in kickstand so the bag doesn't have to be laid down. Check out the construction of the stand to make sure it's durable. Travel You can get travel bags in soft or hard sides. If you are flying with your bag, the hard sides may be the better option. Get one with built in wheels so you're not forced to schlep it across the airport parking lot. Also look for one that doesn't just zip shut, but has a locking mechanism to help ensure none of your clubs inadvertently fall out or get stolen. Cart This one is bigger than the carry bag and can hold more clubs. It's also heavier and is not meant to be carried. It is appropriate for a golf cart or hand-pushed cart. These bags will also have more pockets and allow for more storage. Tour The tour bag is the biggest and heaviest of all bags. It's the type the pros use and you can see this bag slung over the caddie's back. They're high quality, hold the most clubs, and are also the most expensive. Junior There are golf bags made for young golfers. They are lighter, hold fewer clubs, and have a shorter shoulder strap. They are also less expensive, which is nice when you're not sure if your young one will become a golf-lover or not. Your personality will come into play when choosing the color and detailing of the bag. Keep your eye on quality and price, but especially on getting the right bag that will work for you in your situation.
