2018 Golf Bags

When choosing a golf bag, it is best to have a list of preferences to make the decision that much easier. For instance, you don’t want to be lugging a heavy golf bag filled with clubs around the greens, so consider picking a model which is lightweight unless it’s going on a golf cart, in which case weight should not be an issue. Next, check to see how many dividers the golf bag has. The more the better as they will accommodate more golf clubs at any one time. Other things might include the brand, whether the bag has straps or harnesses, and also if the golf bag needs to be large or small in size.

Carry/Stand Bags

Stand bags (also carry bags) are used by the majority of golfers due to their slightness of weight and ease in bringing a full set of golf clubs to the greens.

Stand bags are larger than pencil bags, having added benefits offering more to the player while on the golf course. Stand bags gain points for having a stand to hold the bag upright when left unattended, meaning it will stand safely at your side during a round. This keeps the golf bag from getting dirty, also making it easier to remove clubs from the divider.

Premium quality stand bags include the TaylorMade Pro 6.0 Stand Bag, PING Hoofer Lite Stand Bag, Callaway Golf Fusion 14 Stand Bag 2018, Sun Mountain H2NO SuperLite Stand bag and here, among other top-quality golf bags.

Tour Bags

Tour bags are the largest golf bag, usually around 10inches in diameter and sometimes weighting as much as 45lbs. Tour bags are used by Tour professionals.

Tour bags are not recommended for players wanting to carry their own bags due to their large size (approximately 9inches or more), which makes them more apt for accommodating everything Tour players need while on the greens, including extra clothing (often waterproofs), gloves, refreshments, golf balls, tees etc.

Tour bags are premium quality and should be used only with a trolley due to their weight.

The Callaway Golf Epic Tour Staff Bag and Titleist Tour Staff Bag and great tour bag options.

Pencil Bags

Pencil bags are thinner and lighter than regular golf bags. However, despite their slight size, pencil bags still offer a good deal of storage options, with a 6-inch diameter top able to hold up to 14 golf clubs with ease.

A reason to buy the pencil bag is the fact it can be packed into a car boot or clubhouse locker. And, despite offering very little protection in adverse weather conditions, pencil bags are ideal for warm days when carrying a heavy load isn’t recommended.

Some of the most popular golf pencil bags available today includes the American Golf Pencil Bag, Mizuno Golf Scratch Sac Pencil Bag, Titleist Sunday Pencil Bag, PING Moonlite Pencil Bag and TaylorMade Quiver Stand Bag.
