    I have one. It has my name on it. I always ride. I like having the room in the bag.



    Frankly, I wish everyone used a bag with their name on it. Regardless whether it's a staff bag or a Ping Hoofer. It would make it a lot easier to address other club members by their name.

    Who cares? I switched from my old Ping Hoofer to a Cleveland tour Cart bag this year. The clubs slide in and out real easy and I strap it to my Clicgear when I walk. I'm never going to carry again...it messes up my back.

    these types of topics always amaze me and cause me to ask this one, simple question...



    WHY DO YOU CARE IF SOMEONE _____________________?



    a) plays blades and has a 12 Hdcp

    b) carries a staff bag and shoots in the 90's

    c) has a circle T putter

    d) has "tour issue" equipment





    fill in the blank with your ridiculous example.



    Get over it. If we all did everything like you do, used your accepted clubs, etc., it would be one BORING world.




    amen.

    I don't see a problem with it especially if you ride a cart or walk with a push cart. if you are lugging it around as a walker and laying it flat on the ground every time you have to hit......well....that's kinda....i won't say.

    sure why not? they look awesome, hold lots of stuff and why not have your name on it. like the other poster said it makes it easier to remember who we are playing with. when we leave our clubs at the club house they wouldnt get mixed up all the time if they ALL had our names on them.

    This is like complaining someone has a Ferrari or Lambo and they are not a racer... Who cares! They have the $$, let them buy/enjoy what they have...

    Since i have one i clicked yes if someone has a problem with it i REALLY dont care, my money.



  • mozgolfmozgolf Members Posts: 3,954 ✭✭
    I used one in the past because I carried so much gear with fickle weather in New Zealand, needed warm gear, wet weather gear, wet weather gloves, fleece or wool hat etc. We all used push carts so size was no problem. Now in Africa its a carry bag, mainly for my caddy's sake and cos I dont carry much, an umbrella and balls is about it.



    I am not an advocate of playing dress-ups of carrying a staff bag that is monogrammed like the pros- sure use the bag if you like it and you need the space etc, but for heavens sakes we are grown ups and shouldnt need to play dress up

    You do realize that pretty much every car sold today has it's make, model, logo or emblem both on the front, back and sometimes even side of the car.



    Same goes for carry bags too.

    I have one. Clicked "who cares?".



    I'd say I use mine...25% of the time. Only when forced to ride, normally. I guess occasionally on my push cart. If I'm just going to the range, it's the stand/carry bag.

    I voted no cause for me , it would be silly to lug around that big stupid advertising billboard and not get paid to do so like they were purely intended to be used for.



    But mostly , I find it interesting that so many people take these threads SO personally.



    Do I care what anyone else does ? No.



    Did the OPs question specifically ask if you did ? No.



    Why is defense the first reaction for so many people ?

    I have a Titleist Stand bag with my name on it. It was a gift from a friend of mine who is a head pro at a local club. I keep it in my office with a few spare clubs and putters.



    Don't think I'd ever game it though, but that's because I rarely ever ride.

    It would get really annoying carrying around a staff bag, they are just so big and bulky. Leave the staff bags for the pros and their caddies to handle image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Since you've missed the point, perhaps a picture will help. Allow me to present the automotive equivalent of a bought staff bag.

    You might be looking slick in your own mind, but to the rest of us it's just ridiculous.



    But like I said, do whatever makes you feel cool. Haters gon' hate, and we aint mad at cha.

    So let's see... if you buy a staff bag, you're a **** being used by the company that brands the bag? Buy a stand bag and you're ok? Think about it, when's the last time you walked into a golf store and saw a golf bag without a company logo on it?



    I see all kinds of golf bags at work. Don't care if they have staff bags or not. A bag is a bag, its there to hold clubs and store stuff. Simple as that.

    I just don't like the ones loaded with 60 balls. They get heavy after a while image/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    16pars-



    Never said it has to be a stand bag, and the last time I saw a bag with no big logo on it was when I bought my Sun Mountain bag. Don't mind having the logo of the company that made the bag on there, but paying money to play dress-up with a staff bag was, is, and will always be silly. About as silly as painting up your Monte Carlo to look like your favorite NASCAR driver's ride.

    I've always laughed when I see someone with a staff bag with someone else's name on it. I know that stuff is usually embroidered on there but I wouldn't be caught dead with a staffy that said "Jimmy Stankowitz" or something on there...

    H I L A R I O U S !!!!



    I wonder how many of the guys that are barking the most about how only a **** would carry a staff bag are the same guys that stamp their initials into the bumpers of their putters and the backs of their wedges.



    If there's anything that's makes someone a "wannabe", IMO that's just as bad. Staff bags have the logo on them just like stand bags, sunday bags, etc. I just don't get the problem.

    I can fit everything I need in my Ping Hoofer (and carry 99.9% of the time I play) so never saw the need/utility in a staff bag (although I did have one before that I won in a tournament and used it to store random clubs).



    That being said, yeah, I think it's a little ridiculous that a 15 handicap sports a bag with his name on it, but it's his money and name so I don't really care.



    I'm sure there are certain things that I may do on and off the golf course that the 15 handicapper would find ridiculous - to each his own.

    I do find it a bit ironic that it's OK to have a carry/stand bag with a company name stamped all over it (including Sun Mountain, which - hello - is a company, too), but NOT a staff bag? I'm not at home, but I think my Callaway Hyperlite carry bag actually has more Callaway logos on it than my Callaway staff bag. So if it's all about the logos, wouldn't the staff bag be "better"?

    I have a cart bag with a cooler. Best invention ever. Fits a 6 pack in it. And the big pocket holds the other 6 pack. Take one out and replace it with a warm one so its cold when I want it to be.

    So the consensous is that staff bags are ridiculous and, us that carry them are all wannabe's and all of you with a little stand bag are just perfect because staff bags have LOGO's embroidered all over them. Have you guys even looked at your own stand bags they have the SAME logo's embroidered all over them also, LMAO. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, grow up, play this great game, worry about your own SHAT and shut up.

    I don't care about logos on any bag (and I'm not sure how the thread got to this point - all bags have logos); if I had an issue with staff bags (I don't - as I posted above, yeah they look a little ridiculous but not enough for me to care), it's that they're wholly unnecessary for 99.99% of people and are an absolute nightmare for a caddy (if any of you walk).

    EXACTLY why are they wholly unnecassary? The same could be said for ANY bag no matter the size of it, if it has more than lets say 5 pockets. That is WHOLLY unnecassary too, 1 pocket for balls 1 pocket for tees 1 pocket for gloves 2 pockets for miscellaneous stuff there that is 5 pockets and everything you need to carry. So, we should all carry a 5 pocket bag if you have any more than that I will be laughing my **** off at you and you better not let me beat you, LMAO. I ride in a cart everytime i play just like 99% of everyone else i have ever seen at a golf course. I guess since i'm a wannabe for using a staff bag when i COULD use a stand bag, i can call all of you that walk a course and hold everyone up wannabe's when you could ride in a cart and not hold everyone up, HUH. I dont care if golfers walk, ride, crawl, or hop when you play, i think its good enough that you are out enjoying this great game. Apparently i am in the MINORITY of minding my own bussiness tho, stop worrying about what other people bring to the golf course worry about YOURSELF and be glad others are out enjoying themselves.

    Wow, you sure do take this personally - not sure what you're taking such offense to, but I'm sorry that this topic gets you so worked up.



    My thinking that they're unnecessary is that I can't see what people need all that bag for - I have training aids (Inside Approach and a Momentus weighted club), a SS measuring device (Swing Speed Radar), two dozen new golf balls, a dozen used golf balls, numerous sunscreens, extra gloves, lip balms, ballmark repair tools, etc...............and I carry all that in the three main pockets of my Ping carry bag - heck, I can even fit an extra pair of shoes in there (and have at times), and I wear size 14E which are kinda large.



    I put my keys and my wallet in the tiny fourth pocket.



    Again, that's just me and what works for me - if you're happy with your staff bag and always take a cart, then everyone's happy image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
