Answer: too often.
I admit I am a stand/carry bag ho.
Always on the look out for the ultimate carry bag.
Very pleased to report that I once wore the straps off a sun mountain stand bag by playing a lot of golf.
Also pleased that I played enuf golf one season to have the colour on my Titty superlight bag fade from a strong masculine orange to a very questionable salmon/pink colour. that bag still worked great but got retired because of the funny faded colour.
Just bought my first ever Ping stand bag and I am pleased to read all the posts here about how durable they are.

If I do take a cart, the legs don't get in the way and the bag fits nice and snug in the cart.

If ping ever puts a better divider system in the hoofer I'll switch immediately.

I bought the new Sun Mountain Speed Cart Bag for my new speedcart that I bought the first year the speed cart came out. I think it was in 1999. So far so good. I almost bought a new bag this winter, but decided I didn't need one. My bag lives in the trunk of my car and I only play about 40x/ yr, but it still works. The only reason I had to buy it because the first bag I ever owned was decimated by a leaky bug spray bottle, the bug spray ate through the pockets and the bottom began to fall off.
When I travel, I take a canvas Sunday bag that my grandfather bought before I was born. I guess it is 50 years old. This is my .5 bag since I own it but rarely use it.
Cant see why someone would buy a new bag if the one they have still holds their clubs.

Have now sold the Callaway and Nike. Adidas i will probably keep for a couple of years, great bag to carry but still has the space to use on the push cart if all waterproofs etc are required, it will just depend how long it holds up as i generally play 6 times a week even if its just 9 holes.
