How To Choose Your Golf Bag?
Here is our new article to choose your golf bag and play with confidence
Golf is a game that combines calm, patience and rigor. The player must be able to focus on his course and catch his business easily to lose time and concentration. Therefore, the choice of a golf bag should be done with caution. It will have to vary between your expectations, your needs and the functionality that you intend for him.
If the perfect golf bag is impossible to find, you can approach it by skillfully selecting the qualities you are looking for.
Golf bags: products specific to the use
You can find four types of golf bags on The Golfers Bazaar . Each of these types offers its advantages and disadvantages: it will therefore be necessary to choose carefully by projecting your needs. Some concessions are sometimes necessary, but there are aspects of your bag that you do not want to compromise on, and that’s perfectly normal. Think about it well in advance.
Let’s start with the so-called “portable” golf bags. The practice bag will be the lightest and therefore the most manageable. Ideal for traveling golfers, it will minimize the risk of low back pain.
However, it will not offer many storage options. The portable bag on the shoulder will be bigger, but also heavier: count on average between 1 and 4 kilos for the empty bag.
There are also bags “trolleys”. These are not at all suitable for being worn, but only to be moved in a carriage. The trolley bag is large and can offer plenty of storage, but it must be chosen because the quality and practicality vary a lot from one model to another. Finally, the tour bag is undoubtedly the largest golf bag. Ideal to store all of your range without difficulty. But of course, it is unwieldy and very heavy!
The trolley bag: a good compromise for the golfer
As we have seen, the trolley bag is probably the most versatile of all. Unfit to be worn on the shoulder because of its weight too large, it is however large enough to house your equipment. Most of the time, it is designed for practicality and will offer zippered pockets for your accessories, club dividers, bullet catchers or even a special pocket for your water bottle.
You will still have to pay attention to the quality of the material you will buy. Some trolley bags are better made than others. Observe the presence or not of stitching and determine the depth of the bag in relation to your material. The number of pockets and storage is appropriate for you? Remember that there are golf bags specially adapted for left-handed people.
The portable bag on the shoulder: comfort is essential
The portable bag on the shoulder can be in 1 strap or 2 straps. The second choice is usually more popular because the weight distribution is better. This type of bag sometimes offers a tripod to allow you to put your bag on the ground in a stable and convenient way to find your equipment without stooping.
However, the portable bag on the shoulder can be heavy to wear: count a good dozen pounds or more. Everything will depend on your equipment and its quantity. Therefore, your bag must be comfortable: padded and adjustable shoulder straps, anti-slip foam grips, foamed back … When buying, remember that most of the weight will be due to your equipment: your bag must be perfectly adapted to your requirements.
The practice bag: light and handy but not very functional
Without a doubt the lightest golf bag, the practice bag is suitable for roving golfers with back problems or who do not want to carry heavy loads. Although it is quite easy to use, it does not allow to store a lot of equipment. As a result, many golfers consider it suitable for children and young players but not practical for an experienced player, needing more equipment and easier access to it.
