How To Load A Golf Bag
Getting a new golf bag is exciting and knowing how to load a golf bag is part of it. Most bags today come with three compartments and all sorts of pockets to put your golf balls and equipment, maybe even a secret six-pack. But putting these items in their proper places is important. After all, you don't want to be fumbling around your golf bag looking for a golf ball when it's your turn to swing away. Here's how to load a golf bag.
- Load your woods. The woods-driver, three-wood, five-wood, or even hybrid-should be in the top compartment when loading a golf bag. This compartment is usually the most spacious, which will give these clubs and their headcovers ample room. The top compartment would be the side that will face the inside of the cart if you are a rider; it's usually the same side that the golf bag shoulder strap is on.
- Load your long- and mid-irons. These are usually the irons that run from two all the way to nine. These irons should go in the middle compartment. Also, try to keep them in order, because this will allow these clubs to be easily visible while being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
- Load your shorts irons and putter. This will consist of all your wedges-pitching, sand, gap, and lob, depending on what works for your game-and your putter. When you load a golf bag, put these clubs in the bottom compartment.
- Add golf balls. When loading a golf bag, put the golf balls in the big compartment that will face the outside of the cart if you are rider. Keep at least a dozen in this compartment.
- Add tees. The tees, when loading a golf bag, should be in a separate pocket near the golf balls.
- Add accessories. This can include the spare golf rain jacket, inclement weather club protector, spare tees and balls. These items, when loading a golf bag, should be in or near the big compartment on the outside of the bag.
