The upcoming Hooked on Golf Blog World Tour trip to Scotland is 22 days, 4 hours, 12 minutes and 34 seconds away. But who is counting? During this particular tour I intend to carry my bag and what would you know, a great candidate for that job has arrived for review from Puma Golf.  This is the Superlite Stand Bag:

I’ve been thinking about using a “Sunday Bag” for the Scotland trip because of how light and small they are. A couple of problems with Sunday bags are that they don’t have stands, and they typically can’t hold much. In Scotland I am going to need some room for sweaters and rain gear. That’s what may make this Puma Superlite the ticket. It’s only 3.8 pounds but has room for 14 clubs plus a ton of rain gear and other needs, like flasks full of scotch or extra golf balls if the gorse is particularly hungry.

I will begin my testing as soon as my next round, in two days. Stay tuned for my full review after I’ve had enough real rounds of golf to fill up my cranium with opinions about this bag. And stay tuned for the upcoming Scotland pictures to see if this bag made the cut for the trip to the birthplace of golf.

Played my first round with the 2015 TaylorMade Supreme Hybrid Golf Bag today.  This is one of three bags TaylorMade is offering for next year.  It is a stand bag which can be carried, or works great on a golf cart as well.

The bag is staying in the starting lineup since I shot an even-par 72 with it in play!  Had to be the new bag…

I’m putting a new Nike Sport Lite golf carry bag into play now and will be putting it through the regular rigorous Hooked On Golf Blog review battery.

When I golf I prefer to walk and carry the bag. I don’t carry much because of my bad back, but at less and four pounds carrying this bag should be pretty easy.

Nike announced this bag back on 10/31/13. Until I have my review done, you can check out the Nike Sport Lite Golf Bag press release here.

I’ve also posted a few photos of this bag: Nike Sport Lite Golf Bag photos.


Review: Wellzher Sunday Golf Bag – Less Than Two Pounds

I’m in the planning stages of the next trip to the home of golf, St. Andrews, Scotland.  One big decision to make is which bag to bring.  There’s a lot of walking and bag carrying over there, not like here in the USA where some courses actually require you to use a cart (or “buggy” in Scotland).  I’m trying to walk a little more and I may have found the perfect bag for that and the upcoming trip, the Wellzher Sunday Golf Bag.

Nike Sport Cart Golf Bag

Last month (November 2010) Nike released the new Nike Sport Cart Bag.  I’ve had one in play now for a couple of months and I’ve enjoyed using it.  I can be quite a critic of golf bags because there’s not a piece of gear which gets used and abused as much as the bag itself.  If they’re poorly made or designed in a way which makes golfing harder rather than easier, that bag is going the way of the junk pile.

Sport Cart Bag Overview

This bag is designed for golfers who prefer to use some mode of wheeled transportation for themselves and/or their bags on the golf course.  Those modes may include push carts, pull carts or riding carts.

The top of the bag is designed in such a way that the clubs organize well in two directions, making club access easy for vertically mounted orientation or slanted mounts like those on push/pull carts (trolleys in the UK, aye?).
