Different Types Of Golf Bags

Been playing a lot of golf today, you might say I’m “on fire”. Thought I’d just write a post to address some of the different types of golf bags out there.

Bag shopping doesn’t have to be tedious. In fact, it can be as easy as 1-2-3 because all you need to think about when buying golf bags are three things. First, how many clubs do you want to bring for your game? Second, how do you want to carry your bag all throughout the game? Lastly, what type of player are you? If you answer these three questions, you are almost done with the picking of your golf bag.

Listed below are the 4 types of golf bags available for beginner to pro golfers:

Carry Bags

This is also referred to as the Sunday bags or the “essentials bags.” Why? Of all the golf bags available, this type of bag is lightweight and as the term says, it can carry essentials only. The usual material for this is nylon. Some carry bags are plastic or polyester. You can carry it on your back or side and it weighs around 2 pounds at least. It can usually accommodate your basic golf club set. The basic set is around 4 clubs.

It has a pocket for the spare balls, another pocket for the tees and a beverage patch. It will become heavy to bring if there are more pockets on the bag and it was not built that way. If you are a newbie golfer or someone who plays the game for fun with friends, this is the bag for you.

Stand Bags

You may see on TV that pro players have their own caddies. Well, even if you are not a pro, you can hire someone to carry your bag for you. But some people love the exercise and the extra challenge of bringing their own things in the course. With that, stand bags have become really popular. It has retractable legs which can stand on its own while you putt or tee. It also has wheels so you can it drag it anywhere.

It weighs around 5lbs and has features like a hip pad to make your walking easier if you decide to carry it backpack-style. Yes most stand bags have two back straps for carrying purposes. It really is up to you on how you prefer to bring it.

Cart Bags

If you plan on walking the course while carrying your golf bag, then, the cart bag is NOT for you. A cart bag is specifically used with a golf cart. It is not made to be carried by the golfer or his caddie. It has to be strapped on the back of the cart. If you are walking with a pulley, this bag can work for you too.

Some golf courses require a cart while playing so it is befitting for you to use a cart bag by then. In average, it weighs around 7lbs and it is much lighter than the staff bag. (Staff bag will be discussed next.) The base of the bag is usually non-slip and made of rubber to avoid falling off the cart.

Staff Bags

This is the PRO bag or the TOUR bag. Staff bags are usually made of leather and a bit on the heavy side. The body of the bag is wide wherein patches and stickers of sponsors are placed for visibility. You can say that staff bags are usually high quality and high in price as well.

It can hold 14 clubs at one time and weighs more or less 10lbs. It is very heavy, yes. But if you need to organize your golf clubs and accessories, this is the bag for you. Just be sure to hire a caddie to bring it for you otherwise you will get tired before reaching the second hole.

5 Best Tech SmartWatches

Every often a new idea comes to flood more technological market. Some time ago the term “wearables” made its appearance in the section of gadgets an in the end applies to the devices you can have on your body for all day almost always bracelets, necklaces, sunglasses and watches.

So this article is about smart watches. As any appliance that is being born there is a standard, yet that makes a smart watch the best or the most perfect of its kind, each manufacturer has made its launch try to do as you think it should be, undoubtedly contributing a different user experience.

While the best smart watches might not be as good as the best swiss-made watches, they are still something to admire and be proud of all the same.

However, if we generalize a bit that would define an Intelligent watch we could agree that it would be: “A wrist device that wirelessly connects to your smartphone allowing viewing through the same real-time notifications, also including basic functions such as display time and be able to use timer, stopwatch, etc.” Hence, here are best 5 cool tech watches available in the market.

1. Pebble

The Pebble is an initiative through the Kickstarter program achieving collect more than $10 million. Among its most striking features is its screen, the pebble offers a screen monochrome e-paper or electronic paper.

Its main attraction is that it can be visualized in any light condition for, either very bright or very dark, its environment always looks better and has a low power consumption, allowing you to pebble a range of more than a week on a single charge.

There are hundreds of applications for the clock to get the most productivity out of it.

2. Samsung Gear 2

As always innovative and assertive Samsung was one of the first to venture into this world to do the launch of Galaxy Gear. It has now enhanced by the Samsung Gear 2 presents attractive features, among which stand to take pictures directly from the watch, and photos taken are sent and stored in your phone.

You can answer calls directly on the clock without gripping the phone. The only disadvantage is that it is only accessible to Samsung smartphones and its price makes it little difficult for everyone.

3. Sony SW2

Like Samsung, Sony appears venturing into this world from the beginning, the Sony SW2 is a SmartWatch that allows connection to any Android device via Bluetooth. It can display notifications for most common applications like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, and some differences such as it not only notifies Whatsapp messages received, but also can preview the message on the display.

In my opinion is one of the most standardized and is the path that eventually most SmartWatch take.

4. I’m Watch

A unique watch from a small Italian company that has shown a way forward. The I’m watch is large, expensive and has many things to improve as, but is also the first work acceptably well on both Android and iPhone, using a touch screen with various apps. It connects directly to the Internet via mobile phone to synchronize with exclusive apps. Its price is around € 350

5. iPod nano

The iPod nano, hit the market as the redesign, touch screen, its predecessor. There has never been a wristwatch as such, and not even meant to be, but since its launch people gave this utility by various accessories. Their limited functionality and no connectivity did not allow for much, but maybe, just maybe, be the spark that lit the fuse in the 2010 iwatch future.

5 Cool Things

Well I should probably get some meat added to this here site, and I’m going to start by listing FIVE things that I think are cool and worthy of inclusion on the site.

It’s mostly things I’ve just stumbled upon (not via stumbleupon.com though) in my daily life, and things that I’d like to remember in a year’s time or something when I look back to see what my first post was about. Scary though.

Anyway, Christmas is coming and there are a whole bunch of list-type posts littering the web, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet, and maybe or maybe not Christmassy, you decide on that one!

1.) Hobby Drones

These things are pretty cool right? I know there are all sorts of issues that are going to come of them in the future, but people are doing some really interesting things with them. Amateur photography is never going to be the same again.

Yeah so some people are going to use them to spy on their neighbours, but at least the technology has a use other than killing people.

They’re not too expensive either, so maybe they WOULD make a good gift. Hmm..should I?

2.) Straight Razors

So I was reading this post on shaving tips for men recently. You’d think it would be nothing special, but it actually blew my mind. There were so many useful tips in there and I found out I’d been approaching shaving in totally the wrong way. Really surprised me.

Anyway, one thing I learned was that straight razors are really fantastic, and the mroe research I do, the mroe I realize they’re becoming more popular again. I think you can get some on Amazon, but there are probably some cool vintage ones near your area too.

Dom Wells from http://luxuryshaves.com has put together a pretty cool site actually, so if you want to get in touch with your inner man, go check it out.

3.) Ugly Christmas Suits

Fine, I admit it, this is going to be a Christmas list. I planned it all along.


Seriously though, have you seen these things?

They’re so ugly that they’re cool. Kind of like Bulldogs.

4.) Cool Breakfasts

Yep, not a particular “item” as such, but still something very cool. Check out this post to see what I mean.

As the article says, it’s amazing how much imagination we lack when it comes to the “most important meal of the day”, so I think we should really start rectifying that.

This morning I had a shake though, so not exactly awe-inspiring.

5.) AeroGarden

I can’t remember where I first saw it, I just think it’s a really cool concept, and for people with a small apartment, lack of balcony, or whatever, I actually think it’s just a pretty cool idea.

Well that’s my list! What do you think? I know that it is totally random, but that is in keeping with the theme of the site and where I’d like to take it.

I’m sure that a few months from now I will have a more “niche” direction, but for now I’m just going to throw stuff around. Not literally, that would be dangerous.
