best sunday/pencil style bag?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I am looking for a bag I can wear on my back while I ride my bike to the course. Mostly when I go I'm just practicing putting or short game so it doesn't have to hold 14 clubs. But a good strap system and light weight are priorities. Anyone on here use this type of minimalist equipment? Looking for recommendations off the beaten path (I can find the titleist.com website on my own, LOL!)

That's the only one I can think of off the top of my head, but Tad Moore may have something on his website.

Those high end, minimalist bags are absolutely beautiful.

I can picture being young, walking while carrying my own bag, and playing with seven or eight clubs.

I can picture it.  Can barely remember when I could last do it.

Now I'm going back to check out the hickory sets on the Louisville and Tad Moore websites.

Sometimes picturing things is all you've got.

I recently purchased the Stitch SL1 after having the Jones bag for a while, as much as I loved the Jones the stitch is exactly what I was looking for, nice material, minimalistic look, no logos except very small orange stitch badge. A little pricy but it has held up well, the stand mechanism works great and after a full summer of use looks just about brand new. I highly recommend.

If you are looking to ride on your bike with it. I think the Caddy Daddy is a great way to go. Nice functional bag and a great price at that.

I have a Seamus Fescue Project sunday bag and I love it.  I have a Jones original as well, but the Seamus is a much better bag. 

I carry 12 clubs, (no 3 wood and no gap wedge) so sunday bags are perfect for me.  

I even use it on a cart when I play courses that don't allow walking, and I don't get club tangle because the bag is standing straight up. 

I've had ping moonlight, the titleist version, the mizuno version, and a sun mountain version.  None of those are as comfortable as a bag with no spine and stand mechanism. And the reason why the Jones bag loses to the Seamus?  The hard plastic base and plastic round top.  Believe it or not, the soft opening with the 3 way leather divider top on the Seamus is perfect.  The plastic on the jones makes a loud "thunk" like I'm hitting an empty 5 ballon water bottle like a drum.  Makes it sound cheap.  

Bear in mind, this is for the complete minimalist.  It literally has 1 pocket that will hold up to 10 golf balls (I keep 4-6 and my sunglasses in there), a mesh pocket I keep a small drawstring pounch in that holds my markers/tees/divot repair) and a top pocket I keep my wallet and keys in.  

It has a bungie chord I wrap my light weight jacket in, and a single strap.  And it fits perfectly on my shoulder and lays on the  small of my back, firmly, and without club head rattling.  

 

I'm tempted to buy another one, but they're not cheap, and the designs are very limited.  i use a pair of trestle sticks as a stand mechanism, but I end up putting the bag down on the ground most of the time except for on a tee box.

Yeah I like those bags... Pretty sure it's what a Mackenzie bag feels like too.

The Belding pencil bas is gorgeous, well crafted, and indeed, not something you will find discounted at Walmart. I have a bushwhacker cart bag from them and I have never owned such a well crafted piece of non-weapon equipment.  Since my wife has me on a budget, I suspect my Sunday bag will be from Ping.  But if price is no object, the Belding may indeed last you for more than a few decades.

All beautiful picks.  I played The Cradle at Pinehurst the other day in a team-building event for work and carried four clubs in a Seamus Fescue.  Had a blast.

If you want something that can work with all 14 clubs as well, check out the Sun Mountain 2.5.  I have one and love it.  It's not great on a push cart, so I'm back to using my Cobra Ultralight.  But I wouldn't hesitate to use it with a half set.
