A Good Golf Bag Is Vital
With very good reason golfers are so particular and meticulous about choosing the right golf clubs for themselves. Or so they should be. With modern technology, golfers are also more and more conscious and are spending much more money on things like golf training aids and golf rangefinders. If these items are of paramount importance then your choice of golf bag may not even be a significant decision for you to make. But it should be. A good golf bag is vital!
Few things are more important to a golfer than a good golf bag. First of all, golf bags come in many styles and a wide variety of colours. You can choose a bag for style, features or pick a colour to match your mood. Or, a combination of all these features.
Some golf bags have legs, or a golf bag stand, that fold out when they are placed on the ground and stand upright so the golfer doesn’t have to bend down and pick it up. That’s a nice feature in golf bags, especially if the golfer tends to walk the course, as many do. Or if you are golfer that is not too nimble on your feet. If that is the case then a golf bag with wheels may be of a vital consideration.
There is plenty of bending to be done when a golfer is trying to remove an obstacle from around his or her ball, or to get the ball out of the cup, so any way to avoid bending over is more than appreciated.
All golf bags have compartments, or pockets, where the golf clubs are to be placed. Each golfer has their own way of doing this, whether that be a male or female golfer. Placing golf clubs where he or she wants them becomes a regular ritual. Some golfers, though, are lazy and just stick their clubs in the compartments, grabbing whichever one they want
when a particular club is needed.
But, some golf bags have tubes to protect the club grips. These are nice to have. With the tubes, a golfer can get their clubs out easier. The clubs are never tangled up, and the grips last a lot longer.
Another important factor in choosing a golf bag is the number of pockets it has. In essence, there’s no such thing as too many pockets in a golf bag. If you think of all the things a golfer will use during a game, this makes a lot of sense. First, one of the pockets will be used to hold the golf bag’s hood. The hood is used to keep the clubs and bag from getting soaked when it rains. Another pocket will be used to keep extra towels (believe it or not, extra towels are important in the summer to keep the sweat off the brow and out of the eyes, along with keeping the hands relatively dry). If temperatures do get a bit too hot you may also need to consider a golf bag cooler.
Then, there is the pocket used for keeping the extra golf tees and possibly the divot tool. Finally, a pocket is needed for the golf balls themselves, and it doesn’t hurt to have a pocket
to carry another dozen balls in, just in case.
Some courses are so difficult it is easy to lose a lot of balls during 18-holes of play. I should know, I’ve been there, seen it, struck it off the list and got the t-shirt to prove it!! This makes having an extra box of balls around a good thing, but there has to be somewhere in the golf bag to keep them, which means another pocket.
You may even consider keeping different branded golf balls in their own separate pocket as you may then be able to tell which golf ball has been the most effective for you.
Imagine trying to play golf without a bag. The golfer would be constantly stooping over picking up clubs, tees, balls, towels and the divot tool. Then he or she would have to walk to
the ball, drop all of the clubs and other items, select a club, hit the ball, and start the process all over again. It would be a major pain in the neck and other parts of the anatomy, and would make it nearly impossible to finish playing a round of golf. Also imagine how much added stress that would add to your game if you didn’t have a golf bag? Your game would probably go to pieces.
Like all other golf products, all golfers should carefully choose the right golf bag for them in as much the same way they would if they were choosing clubs or other important equipment.
