Pros and Cons of using a Tour Bag


Liger

Recommended Posts

I got my eye on an awesome red Srixon tour bag (Furyk has the same one) but I am not sure if it is practical. I obviously wouldn't be walking with it. I live in a golf course community and own my own cart so it might not be a bad idea. Does it cut down on bag chatter with the irons because of more room...chime in and let me know what everyone thinks about tour bags. Thanks...

Why wouldn't you walk with a tour bag? Haven't you heard of golf trolleys? :)

 

Seriously though no one uses a motorised cart at my club, everyone walks no matter how big your bag is. I have a Titleist tour bag and always walk with my bag on a fold up, 2 wheel trolley.

 

If you aren't able to pull a trolley then you could always geta powa kaddy or like.

I have two bags -- a Ping Hoofer I use when I carry (which is getting less and less over time) or use a caddie and a red Srixon staff bag I picked up a couple weeks ago. I plan to use the Srixon bag when I ride, expecially if the weather is iffy. It just holds so much stuff! I don't think club chatter is going to be any worse than it was with the Hoofer and it sure is going to be easier to get clubs in and out of the staff bag. Plus it just looks so cool. Finally (sorry to ramble on) the back pocket panel zips off so getting it embroidered with your name is a snap. The only downside is that on some carts a staff bag has to go on sideways or with the ball pockets facing into the cart (better to show off you name on the bag).

 

Plus one more thing: I think staff bags are just way cooler than the dorky-looking "cart bags" around these days. Those cart bags may be functional, but so is a toilet paper holder.

I bought a staff bag because I got sick of my clubs getting tangled in my carry bag. Much easier to get the clubs in and out, plus it can hold all the extras. I just use a pull cart when I walk.

Staff bags are great for a couple of reasons.

 

1. Usually the pockets for holding balls, extras, etc. are much larger/deeper than cart or carry bags.

2. You can store way more towels, rain gear, pull overs, etc. in the large back compartment than any cart or carry bag can ever offer.

 

I don't think club chatter is much less, but getting clubs in and out of the bag is much easier.

 

Only downside I saw when I used to us e one was tranporting the clubs around in the car. (Take up alot of room) and maybe at the practice range where a stand bag was very handy to have versus the big staff bag.

If you live in a golf community and own a gofl cart...a staff bag is not a bad idea. I just switched from a carrry bag to a staff bag as I mostly ride or pull a trolley. Staff bags obvioulsy have more room than carry bags. The primary reason I switched to a staff bag is cause I got tired of the shafts getting tangled up in the carry bag and will use carry bag when I travel or have to carry.

 

As for carrying a staff bag? Only if you're a caddy for a tour player. Most private clubsin the States don't allow pull carts/trolleys as they are deemed unsightly, so one either hs to carry or ride the cart.

Really? You can't use a pull cart? Man, that's different. Over in Australia, that's what near everyone uses. A few blokes drive, but alomost all the rest use pull carts, hardly anyone carries. I'm about 50/50 on when I ride/walk, but even with my carry bag, I still throw it on a pull cart when I'm walking.
