Things to consider when buying a golf bag
Dividers: The most important part of your bag will be its dividers. Ranging from one to 15 dividers, look for the term "way-top" used in reference to the number of dividers at the top of the bag. *Southpaws, look for a bag with dividers designated for left-handed clubs.
Number of pockets and features: From insulated cooler pockets to keep a drink cold, to small pockets for keys and accessories, assess your needs before choosing your golf bag.
Strap System: Most bag have lift handles making the bag easier to carry, but course-walkers should look for strap systems with wide, well-padded straps.
