A Good Golf Bag Is Important
Few things are much more essential to a golfer than a good golf bag. Golf bags come in many styles and a wide variety of colors. You can select a bag for style, features or pick a color to match your mood.
Some have legs that fold out when they are placed on the ground and stand upright so the golfer doesn't need to bend down and pick it up. That's a good feature in golf bags, especially if the golfer tends to walk the course, as many do. There's plenty of bending to be done when a golfer is trying to remove an obstacle from around his or her ball, or to get the ball out from the cup, so any way to avoid bending more is appreciated.
All golf bags have compartments exactly where the golf clubs are to be placed. Each golfer has his or her own way of doing this and putting clubs where he or she wants them. Some golfers, though, are lazy and just stick their clubs within the compartments, grabbing whichever one they want when a specific club is required. But, some golf bags have tubes to protect the club grips. These are good to have. With the tubes, a golfer can get his or her clubs out easier. The clubs are never tangled up, and also the grips last a great deal longer.
Another essential factor in choosing a golf bag may be the number of pockets it has. Frankly, there's no such point as too many pockets in a golf bag. One pocket will be used to hold the golf bag's hood. The hood is used to maintain the clubs and bag from becoming drenched when it rains. Another pocket will be utilized to maintain additional towels (believe it or not, extra towels are essential within the summer to keep the sweat off the brow and out of the eyes, along with maintaining the hands relatively dry. Then, there is the pocket used for maintaining the extra golf tees and possibly the divot tool. Finally, a pocket is required for the golf balls themselves, and it does not hurt to have a pocket to carry another dozen balls in, just in case.
Some courses are so difficult it's easy to lose a lot of balls during 18-holes of play. This makes having an additional box of balls a good thing, but there has to be somewhere within the golf bag to keep them, which means one more pocket.
Imagine trying to play golf without a bag. The golfer will be constantly stooping picking up clubs, tees, balls, towels and also the divot tool. Then he or she would need to walk to the ball, drop all the clubs and stuff, select a club, hit the ball, and start the process again. It will be a major pain in the neck, and would make it nearly impossible to finish playing a round of golf. So, golf bags are an essential part of the game of golf.
