Important Tips on Choosing Golf Bags

By: John Bolt

Since golf is considered an adventure, those of us who play should make sure our golf bags are well packed. In today's world that's easier then ever, with the incredible super light bags coming in a rainbow of colors, with enormous storage compartments (for cell phones, health foods, extra clothing and jewelry) and numerous other technological breakthroughs. These hi-tech pieces of equipment incorporate perfect functionality features along with attractive designs. The feather light bags aid in reducing player fatigue which essentially will help you shoot lower scores.

Today's equipment manufacturers put golf bags into two main categories; cart or tour bags and carry or stand bags. The cart bags being much larger and heavier then their counterparts, are designed mainly to sit on carts. It doesn't matter whether it's a push, pull, or a power motor cart. They're usually constructed of leather and other heavy duty materials which are extremely durable. They aren't so much made for functionality as they are for show and display, although that is ever changing.

Carry and stand bags have moved in leaps and bounds over the past number of years. They used to be heavy and clunky where as today you can find these bags as light as 2.5 pounds. The shoulder straps and carry systems are a piece of cake to use and disperse the weight load. They even have extended legs and solid bottoms that allow great stability while on the ground. The ease of club selection is a breeze now that you don't have to lay the bags directly on the ground. They remain upright for ease of view and decision making.

The whole process of carrying your clubs has become simple and fun. Now were starting too see more women, juniors, and senior players carrying their bags around the course. You can easily slide your clubs off your shoulders into the standing upright position in one smooth motion. The strength of the lightweight materials is 10 times better than before incorporating breath ability and weather resistance into every construction.

The storage in today's golf bags has also come along way in terms of how much there is and how easy it is to use. You don't have to fight to get the zippers to open like on the older bags. You've got special compartments solely for bottled water, your cell phone, and even pockets that lock you can secure your valuables such as your keys and jewelry.

Today's golf bags are incredibly user friendly, stylish to look at, and super lightweight and efficient. If you still have one of the older models you're truly missing out on some great technology that will make your life easier on the course. After all isn't that what we all want?
