Best golf bags for 2022: Best options for men and women

2022-05-14 06:22:42 By : Mr. Leo Liu

What type of golf bag do you need? Unsure if you should go for a cart bag or stand bag? We’ve got you covered. Both have their pros and cons. Cart bags are nearly impossible to carry anywhere besides from your trunk to the cart but also provide a ton of storage options. Stand bags are incredibly light and do exactly what you need them to do. While they have fewer storage options than a cart bag, you’d be surprised at how much can fit in a stand bag.

Our David Dusek already brought you the best stand bags of 2022. Some of them are on this list because simply put, they’re incredible bags and worthy of holding your most precious cargo every time you tee it up.

It all depends on what you want when you play. Do you always use a cart and have accessories like a portable speaker, GPS, umbrella, ball retriever, etc.? Then a cart bag is probably the best fit for you.

Are you a player that takes a cart most of the time but will occasionally take a good walk? A stand bag will help you accomplish both types of rounds with ease.

Why we like it: Callaway’s 2022 rendition of the Chev 14 cart bag features five pockets, all plenty large for their purposes. It also has 14 full-length dividers (hence the name) that keep each club in its own space, free from knocking against its bag-mates.

Ping Traverse cart bag (GlobalGolf)

Why we like it: PING is a favorite among those who like to carry their bags, but don’t sleep on the Traverse, PING’s lightest cart bag.

Why we like it: Inspired by staff bags of the 1970s, the SL cart bag is the first of its kind from Stitch. It has a five-way divider and is made of premium materials that are well worth the price. Simple, yet sleek the SL cart bag will be the envy of your group.

SL2 Colorblock golf bags (Stitch)

Why we like it: The SL2 Colorblock is just straight-up cool. Regularly coming in black/white, navy/white, or our favorite, white/white, the SL2 is a slimmed-down version of its big brother.

It’s water and stain-resistant and comes with a rain hood to help fight the pesky wet conditions.
