What IS your bag, and why did you choose it?

Nike Air Sport Carry Bag. Nice Nike stand bag that is super light. I do not walk/haven't walked yet but I'm sure if and when I do this thing would have me covered and I would survive. 

Looking to upgrade to a quality Hybrid bag maybe from Nike as well or the Ogio bags look pretty nice. 

Driver: Nike VRS Covert

Wood: Nike VRS Covert 3 Wood

Irons: Nike Vapor Pro 3, Nike VR Pro Cavity 4-PW

Wedges: Nike SV Tour 52, 56, 60

Putter: Nike Ignite 001

I switched to a Sun Mountain C-130 last year mainly because my putter grip had out grown the putter slot on my old bag.

Ping Pioneer in black with my initials and the Ping Man embroidered on the lower pocket. While I was fitting, I switched to all Ping irons, woods, and putter, and although I wanted a "staff" bag, the lighter-pocketful Pioneer was perfect.

My bag is the Sun Mountain C130 Supercharged bag new in 2018 in Sage Camouflage color.  I nearly bought the blue and black like my previous Persimmon bag but I kept coming back to the color selection and the camouflage just wouldn't let go.

Camouflage was my thing for 3 decades as the longest and most successful career in my life was the Army National Guard then the Army Reserve from President Reagan to President Obama.  I did not start golfing until my last year which is surprising from the number of colleagues who golfed and how every military installation has a golf course, driving range, chipping and putting greens, and a clubhouse staffed with helpful and encouraging pros.  My quarters in the last 7 years were next to the courses, Fountains Green 3rd fairway at Fort Dix where we collected stray golf balls in the grass to rescue them before the tractor lawn mowers chopped them into certain death, and Trails West was directly between where I lived and worked.  I borrowed clubhouse drivers for the range and I bought my own putter and became master of the putting green and carpets in my quarters, but that was as far as my game went and nobody was taking the bait to get me out on course.

Brian Flax, the PGA Pro at Trails West GC on Fort Leavenworth, Kansas offered a how to golf clinic I attended and from the first class I was hooked.  What sealed the deal was when he gave me straight answers to the question how to golf as inexpensively as possible.  My mother passed on to me her gene to live for the best deal possible on anything and for me that includes all my golf gear and getting to play on course.  The bigger the deal the better the score!  Golf is for me my quiet place, a peaceful escape apart from everything else in life, it is my serenity.  It's also why I am golf obsessed!

These photos were taken 7/22/2020 at a VA Recreational Therapy / PGA HOPE program golf clinic going on every week until the second Wednesday in September. Golf is an answer to more than what to do on the weekend.  PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program for PGA REACH.  It is a free program provided locally by the PGA REACH WNY Foundation to provide Veterans with an opportunity to learn golf in a fun and healthy environment and is open to all military Veterans with emphasis on serving those with physical and emotional disabilities who would benefit most from the initiative.  There are currently over 60 PGA HOPE programs across the United States.

My bag is a C130. I walk a lot but when I do I use a clicgear 3.5+ push cart. So, I like a "cart bag".

I have to confess, I was really REALLY disappointed in MGS's cart bag test as they didn't even test the C130. The c130 is the best cart bag on the market. It is the ONLY cart bag anyone should ever buy. Why, do I feel so strongly? Because it has the "Smart Strap" feature. 

If you ever use a bag with the "Smart Strap" feature, you will never want a bag without it. Forget that silly strap on the back of the golf cart that either comes lose or your "buddies" unstrap, because they think they're funny. You don't need it. The "Smart Strap" keeps your bag pointing the right direction. It never falls out. It never gets loose. It doesn't get in the way of any pockets. It doesn't squish anything in your bag. Seriously, if you buy a bag without the "Smart Strap" did you even buy a cart bag? 

Shame on you, MGS, for making a "Most Wanted" cart bag that doesn't have this feature. I read and support what MSG does. But they totally whiffed on this one. Sorry, because of the "smart strap" the C130 is in a class by itself. 

 

Note: If you are a walker and like to sling your bag on your shoulder, you can ignore my comments.

I'm a big fan of the smart straps as well.  I don't even bother with the cart strap anymore.

IMO - It is just a much better system.

My wife surprised me with a Sun Mountain C-130S in black. I was set to get the standard C-130 but wanted the stand leg versatility and stability plus a cooler pocket. Came down to this or the Titleist Hybrid and went with the American made one.

Titleist Linksmaster. Not a member at a club currently but repping a random logo. Saw some clubs posting pictures on Instagram, so found one I liked, called their pro shop, and had it shipped. Great weight to walk or ride. A little club tangle, but not as bad as my Ping Hoofer.

I use 2 ping bags: hoofer and craz-e lite. Hoofer is solid and reliable. Clubs can tangle a bit when the legs are extended, but this is minor. Craz-e lite is a fantastic carry bag. Ping bags have proven more durable and reliable for me than others I have used.

I need a new bag and I am torn between the 2022 Sun Mountain C-130 Cart Bag and the 2022 Titleist Cart 15 Golf Bag.  Any thoughts of these?

Callaway Epic Staff bag is my choice. I like a big bag with lots of room for whatever I need to carry that day.  I chose this bag because I really like the looks of it, and I believe it is one of the best-looking bags ever produced. It carries all my stuff, it looks awesome and it matches my clubs.  I've had a plethora of compliments from other golfers regarding my Epic bag.

I have been sold on the C-130 Cart Bag ever since I learned about the Smart Strap system Sun Mountain invented to put on the bag.  I often wonder why they don't put them on all their other cart bags 🤔 The velcro straps secure the bag to any riding or push/pull cart to provide unparalleled safety and security to keep the bag in place without relying on a strap on a riding cart and prevents twisting on the push/pull carts.  My opinion of course but my regular playing partners are moving to them as they need replacement bags.

I have since moved back to a carry bag with trestle sticks. It is lighter and just easy to grab and go. The bag itself is a 70s Macgregor back that belonged to my grandfather. The trestle sticks have my kids’ names burned on to them.

I used to have the 2020 Titleist 15 Cart bag and it was fine. I was in the local Golf Galaxy and saw the Taylormade Supreme Cart bag and instantly fell in love. The size, pocket design, and looks are just perfect. The cooler bag is ginormous as well. Couldn’t be happier.
