Yes, you read the heading correctly. In my current inventory of golf supplies I own more golf bags than golf gloves. I think I in the minority for this fact, but I cannot really prove it. So, lets just say that I am unique! All joking aside, I actually have about seven golf bags, but only two that I actually use. The rest are storing my spare golf clubs, therefore I do not count them in my total. With this fact, I still have more golf bags than gloves!
If you are wondering, I have a total of zero golf gloves. I never wear one and as such, I don’t own any. Regardless of the weather, my hands are garment free and it has been that way for about 25 or 30 years. A golf glove is not something I ever found comfortable, so why wear one?
Apparently, I am not the only player to have multiple golf bags, some have quite a few more than others (11 being the highest reported number) and to tell you the truth, I am not surprised.
I generally only have two golf bags on the go at any one time. I find any more than that is a waste. Currently, I have a carry bag and a push/power cart bag. I love them both and use them equally.
The first bag I use at the beginning and end of the season is my carry bag. This particular bag was a gift from one of my best friends on my retirement from the regular force of the Canadian Military. It is light weight, easy to carry, reminds me that I need to play more golf with him. Kirk and I always enjoy hitting the links and he currently is the proud owner of “The Duck“. I love this golf bag and hopefully it will be around for a very long time.
My push/power cart bag was also a gift. My wife convinced me to buy it when we were in Kingston, Ontario at Military Golf Regionals. I think this was about eight years ago and the bag is still in great shape. On a side note, I have changed my clubs twice since buying this bag. And none were Ping!
I believe that when I find something I like and use; to use it until it needs replacing. At this time, both of these golf bags are in excellent shape and will last a few more seasons. I see no requirement to change what is working.
How many golf bags do you have? Do you use them all?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
