How To Arrange A Golf Bag
Understanding how to arrange a golf bag is for more than just aesthetics. Arranging golf clubs properly in your bag can help increase efficiency on the course and also protect your clubs from potential damage in the bag during storage or transport. Having an organized golf bag on the course helps to reduce clutter in your mind, which opens your mind up to better play.
- Examine the bag you are working with. Golf bags come in a variety of styles. It can have anywhere from three to six organizational sections for clubs in the bag. If it is a very old golf bag, there may be no organization built in.
- Place your clubs in an arrangement that works for you. At the end of the day, you want to organize your bag the way you feel most comfortable with it. There are some common ways to organize the clubs in your golf bag. If you have a newer bag with three sections, place the woods in the far back section (near the strap). These are your longest clubs, and the club heads will naturally hang within the circumference of the golf bag when you are carrying it. This will reduce potential damage to your driver and 3-wood club heads. Irons can go in the opposite side (closer to the front of the bag). If your bag has a middle section, place your putter and wedges here. These are the shortest clubs in your golf bag and won't swing and potentially cause damage to other club shafts.
- Organizing accessories. When you arrange a golf bag, you have to think about more than just clubs. Hang a golf towel of your favorite team or golf brand from one of the hooks or zippers. Use the pockets on the side of the golf bag to hold golf balls, tees, a divot repair tool and a ball marker.
However you decide to arrange your golf bag, have fun with it, but keep an eye to efficiency.
