Ping Hoofer Bag Review

About four months ago I was looking at buying a new bag but I really wasn't that serious about buying a new one. I went to my local Golf Mart Superstore in South San Francisco, CA (sorry for the little plug, I used to work there and still think they're great). Anyway, I was talking to the bag/shoe specialist there who immediately recommended the Ping Hoofer bag. Like I said, I wasn't sold on even buying a new bag at that point and hesitated. I waited about three months when I finally said enough is enough and went in for the bag. Once I gamed the bag, I don't know why I ever waited so long!

Bag preference is like putter preference but I really found I liked this one. It has ample pockets and I like how they put pockets in easy to reach places while you're carrying it. Too often in my old bags I would have to get into some crazy yoga pose just to get to my phone or water bottle. There are multiple, very easily reachable pockets that I can get to at any point.

The one con is the difficulty I've had getting my clubs out of my bag without at least one other club coming with it. I use mid-size and they are a little tacky which is probably the biggest problem. I am planning on going back to standard grips with much less tackiness (is that even a word) which should alleviate the issue. 

In speaking with other people who own the same bag, they rave about it as well and definitely wouldn't go back to their old bag. If you're in the market, take a good look at the Ping Hoofer. I dropped a picture of my bag below!

I have had a hoofer (not same one) since 1997 and this is the only issue I have ever had with one. It is strange as I have had other bags in same class that don't do this however the benefits the hoofer out weigh this small problem significantly.

I bought a Hoofer about a year ago and really enjoy it.  I walk 9 holes on Sundays with my father and brother and I don’t remember ever being uncomfortable.  It has plenty of pockets so the utility is great.  Plus it looks great.

Has anyone seen the Hoofer 14 in the flesh? Does the 14 model have full length club dividers that would solve that issue?

Yes, I would rather deal with this than many of the structural issues in other bags!

Agreed. I’ve developed the habit of pulling the club with bag vertical and then lowering into stand position.
