As golf continues to evolve, so does the equipment. Each year we see new clubs, clothes and accessories to help your golf game. But sometimes, we look past one of the most important pieces of equipment a golfer should have; the golf bag. Golf Life shows you our Top Golf Bags of 2018 and why the golf bag is becoming more and more important to the everyday golfer!
Golf bags used to be simple. You either had a cart bag or a carry bag and it only had one pocket for your golf balls. Today, for better or for worse, we as golfers have developed the need to bring all of our accessories with us wherever our golf bag goes. We have golf balls, tees, rangefinders, gloves, training aids and you can’t forget about those ice cold adult beverages that need to live in your bag. Luckily for us, companies have created golf bags to help us cope with all the necessities that come with the game of golf. Here are our top golf bags of 2018!
