The Best Carry Golf Bags on the Market in 2021

By: | Fri 28 May 2021 | Comments


As we enter the months of summer, the warm weather is welcomed after a whirlwind winter away from the course. The reintroduction of golf continued its boom as players across the country were allowed to visit their golf courses for the first time in almost three months at the end of March. Although the most important possession a golfer can obtain are golf clubs, what’s the use in them without a bag to store them in?

Golfers have three realistic options: buggy, trolley or carry. Today, we want to talk about carry bags.

Below we have listed a lengthy collection of stand bags, which we hope will inspire more people to carry their bag through their round. A previous article has detailed the major benefits for carrying clubs, which include additional calorie loss and increased muscle usage. So with that established, what are the best carry bags on the market for 2021?

Featuring TaylorMade, Callaway, Mizuno, PING, Wilson, Titleist, Big MAX, Cobra, Srixon, and the Motocaddy HydroFLEX, there should be something here for everyone!
