Instead of a strap sleeve made for golf, I use a seatbelt strap cover made by Body Glove.  They’re sold at auto parts stores or Walmart and Target.  I actually think they work better as you can manual

Enjoying a beautiful fall day in Northeast Ohio.  Oh and that Ping Hoofer 😍😍

I guess the question is, why would you ever do this vs. using the stand?  So why even consider this when looking for a "stand" bag?

First time owning a Ping Hoofer Bag. I've been a Sun Mountain 4.5 guy for years now, but the Hoofer Tour was too good to pass up.

 

Does the hoofer bag normally have issues standing up on its own without the legs extended? Even without clubs it has a pronounced lean, like the base isn't very secure. I know the whole point of the bag is to be upright with the legs extended but the base seems really flimsy. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have a 2018 Hoofer, and there's no issue with the legs extended, even with a bent leg. (Thanks British Air! A--wipes). I avoid placing it on a sidehill, but on a flat surface, or uphill/downhill it should be rock solid.

Which Golf Galaxy, if you don't mind saying?  I called my local one and they say they don't carry them there.  

 

Anyone know when Ping will be getting more of these?

This photo is why I pulled the trigger. Had to have this bag. Talked myself out of it, but then grabbed the thing. For those of you using the bag on a cart without the strap, how is it holding up?

Edwin Watts has 60 of them in stock across the country.  Shocked that people are paying a premium for these.  Just call your closest store and they will bring one in. Golf galaxy in Birmingham had 3 last week.

Thanks.  They won't sell it to me over the phone and ship it.  Gotta pick it up at the store.  

Really? Even if you pay shipping? They have 2 of them

Yup, they won't take my credit card over the phone.  I talked with a manager in the store there and a manager in my local GG (to see if they would ship to store and let me buy it in person here) and I talked with someone at the 800 number for GG and Dicks.  Makes no sense.  Most stores aren't turning away paying customers these days.

I have this bag and i have the same problem with it falling to one side when standing on just the base. It seems like the clubs fall to one side and then it just tumbles.

No problem when the legs are unfolded so it should just be something to be aware of when placing the bag to avoid damage to the clubs.

That's true of any bag though.  That's why caddies even lay those huge tour bags on the ground vs letting them stand.  A laying bag can't fall.

I have a couple stand bags that will remaining upright (Callaway Aqua Dry, Nike Air Hybrid), on a flat surface, without the legs extended - but the PING Hoofer and Hoofer Tour do not.  The base and stand mechanism of the Nike is obviously different, but the Callaway's base appears similar though it will balance while the Hoofer's do not.

Didn’t say it was a consideration when purchasing (unaware of this feature when I purchased online) - only that some stand bags do not need the legs extended to remain upright.  It’s a nice thing to have - like a full head of hair after 40 - but not necessarily essential.   I like that they’ll stand upright and less obtrusively by the doorway without falling over in my apt - that’s why I like this feature - others probably have other interests in it.

I would think it has something to do with overall individual store sale not so much "company wide" sales. Each location trying to stay alive as much as possible to show the company they are worth the effort.

 

The GG close to me down here in DFW has 3 in stock as of last weekend.

 

Great looking bags but as others pointed out, there are a good number of flaws for what PING is charging for these.

Proud owner of a new Hoofer Tour bag. Purchased at the Golf Galaxy in Peoria, AZ. There's a second bag still hanging on the hook. I paid full retail, but it was time for a new bag. 

 

Anyone know where I can find a set of black and white Ping headcovers?

Picked up some Core headcovers at PGA Superstore in Glendale, AZ. Ouch. Could have saved a few more bucks buying them online at Carl's Golfland, but I'm itching to get the bag out on the course. I really need a few less woods and hybrids. I'll post a pic shortly.

Ready for the first round. Hopefully I can keep it clean while I wait for my Scotchguard to arrive. Lol. 

 

Three minor nits already. First, the drink holder on the player's (carrying) side it too high, and my water bottle jabs me in the side. Didn't have this issue with the standard Hoofer. I guess I'll put the bottle on the far side. Second, the center carry handle is jabbing me in the back a bit. I'll have to play around with the straps to get the bag to rotate slightly. Lastly, it could use another small zippered pocket. Otherwise it's pretty sweet.

Let me know if you still reallllly want one... I'd be happy to grab one here in Phoenix and ship it out to ya.

Thanks, man.  I was able to find one at a Golf Galaxy about 45 minutes from my house.  Because they don't have them on the website, I had to call every GG in driving distance.  Thanks for the offer.

Any club tangle?  Any problems getting the clubs all the way down the bag?  That's my one nit with it.  I thought the clubs would settle down into the bag easier, even though I use midsized grips.

Good lord, yes there's club tangle, and it's tough to get the clubs settled on the bottom at times. Even when the bag is upright. It's no worse than my old 5-way Hoofer, though. I have a mix of standard, midsize, and jumbo grips. Even my 14 way Ping Pioneer had club tangle, so it's just something I've come to expect. 

 

On a positive note, I was able to adjust the shoulder straps so that the center carry handle is no longer jabbing me in the back. Someone mentioned that the shoulder straps were uncomfortable, but I think they're better than my old Hoofer. They seem to be a tad wider.
