There are few things that are more important to a golfer than their golf bag - well perhaps their clubs are more important, but you have to have a good bag to carry them around in. There are also several features that golf bags come with and they all vary in style and color. In fact, you could have a golf bag for every day of the week or mood if you wanted.
Because we all don't have a caddy to carry and hold our bags for us, some golf bags have legs of their own. These are nice as they allow you to stand your bag up and you don't have to worry about bending up and down all day on the course. Besides, you'll be doing plenty of bending all day anyhow.
All golf bags have a compartment specifically designed for the clubs. Each golfer tends to have their own specific way of doing things when it comes to putting the clubs where they want them. Some golfers though will just throw them all in and grab what they need when they need it. Some bags have handy little tubes that protect the golf club grips. These allow the golfer to get his or her clubs out easier. This keeps the clubs from becoming tangled and they also protect the grips.
Another important factor is to choose a golf bag that has plenty of pockets. There's no such thing as too many pockets in a golf bag. First, one of the pockets will be used to hold the golf bag's hood. The hood is used to keep the clubs and bag from filling up with water should it rain on you. Another pocket can be used to carry towels, because you can never have too many towels. Next, you're going to need a pocket for tees and a divot tool. Of course, another pocket is going to be for the golf balls themselves. It also doesn't hurt to have an extra pocket for extra golf balls as well, at least another dozen. If you're on a course that is foreign to you, then there is no doubt that you may need a few balls just in case.
Many golfers may not realize it, but the bag is an essential part of the game.
