Golf Bags: Equipment That Should Be Taken Seriously

Aug 22, 2007
After finishing a session with the pro on how to master that swing, it is now time to buy the equipments. This is the exciting part since buying sports equipment in general tends to excite the player and feel how it pars with the other brands. So by this time the set of clubs are complete with the dilemma of what bag to put the clubs on. A golf club can be essential to the game since this can be a major distraction to you and to the other players.

Having a golf bag that is heavy can drain your energy and may fatigue the shoulder and back muscles early on. Also, a bag that is disorganized and lacks the right compartments can put the golfer out of focus when trying to find something and may as well distract other players.

The first consideration for this will be the budget. After buying the clubs and the shoes, how much money is left for the bag. Golf bags come in different types, color, form and brands. After establishing which models and product lines to consider that is within the budget, its time to check whether you would want it to be a carry on or a push cart type bag.

The advantage of the carry on golf bag is that it's cheaper and lighter to carry by the shoulders. But be sure to gauge yourself first if you are fit enough to carry this while walking since it could strain your back. When buying a carry on type, make sure that it can stand by itself so it won't feel tired of putting it down for a swing and carrying it up again when walking. Another advantage of a golf bag that stands by itself it keeps the clubs well organized and accessible. The downside to it is it's a carry on so you have to literally carry it by the shoulders which can be straining to the back.

Another alternative to the carry on golf bag is the push cart type bag. This bag has a built in structure that has wheels attach to it so it can just be dragged while walking. This can be a little bit expensive due to the push cart structure. This is a heavy bag to carry on the shoulders so if you are the type of golfer that carries golf bags by the shoulders push cart types are not for you.

A golf bag may be a small factor in winning games but this can surely help a lot. Having a great looking golf bag can boost the golfer's moral and confidence which could translate to better form and fewer strokes.
