My best Friends won a Yamaha staff bag yesterday at a tournament, and I am jealous. It is a great looking bag, and I would use it without any doubt, even though I am not a pro.

But obviously I missed it for one point....

I would not carry a staff bag, too heavy for me. Lots of people think stand bag is just for walkers, actually OUUL stand bag is super sturdy when you place it on a cart too. It doesn't twist around like any other bags I had before. So I got choices to carry or take it on a ride.
Check it out at www.OUULbags.com. We are running the biggest sale this weekend ( everything is 20% off with code GOLFWRX20)
Here is a golfwrx link from 2nd day of PGA show. Easyyy was so impressed after discovered OUUL.

Just won one of these on Instagram. Never really considered a staff bag before, but probably going to end up using this as my main bag if it fits my trolley okay. It looks great, looking forward to seeing it in person!

just don't understand why it's even a discussion point. Maybe the culture in US is different to AUS, but people here wouldn't look twice what bag you game

it's similar topic on wearing white golf pants....there seems to be a thing where a hack or amateurs shouldn't wear white pants to emulate pro's style

I just saw the new Mizuno Staff bag on their Japanese website, this will be my next bag as soon as it will be available in Europe! I don't care what others may think.

Nice bag I saw them in the US Open. The only drawbacks I see are in my past experiences the white is hard to keep clean and it being as rare and expensive as it is will draw lots of attention.

I am all for staff bags.

Even when I was a kid, it was always the staff bag that I wanted to go with. What I would say is that anyone who has a staff bag and who doesn't use a cart is mad. Seen the odd person do it and it just doesn't make sense.

Just bought a Staff bag ™ last week. Two stand bags just crapped out on me this year, terrible bags, Titleist and Taylormade.

Reasons I went staff bag, storage and grip clutter (also stand bag quality, in my eyes, have gone down hill dramatically).

IMHO golf should be solely for the enjoyment of the person playing it, and if shooting 114 with blades and a staff bag does that for you who is anybody to tell you otherwise.

Philosophy aside, I experimented with a staff bag and just don't find them practical. To me, they work better than stand bags for carting but that's why cart bags exist.

I'll say this, I think if a person played in crappy weather often they would be great. The extra storage would be awesome for extra gear etc., and the bags themselves are just built to withstand more of a beating.

Picked up one of these for $90 from Golfetail a couple of days ago... deal-of-the-day price was $99 and I was able to stack a $10 off code, but then had to add a filler item to get it back up above $99 for free shipping.  I doubt it'll ever see the course, but my current backup irons/hybrid/fairway are Adams and my current spare club bag is a Tommy Armour staff bag that got trashed by the dog during a thunderstorm about a decade ago.

I end up buying a Staff Bag of some sort about once a year but usually end up selling it on and usually for a profit.  Last year is was 2 NOS '11 and '12 Mizuno Staff Bags from a local club pro for $85 each... I'd planned on keeping one and giving one to my brother, but greed set in and I unloaded them for $225 and $250 respectively.  I did at least use the profits towards overhauling both his bag and mine.  Given the current state of Adams I doubt it would be as easy to flip this one, but don't be surprised if you see it up on Craig's List or Facebook BST for $200 next week or in the spring.

The 9" Adams Staff bag seems to be a winner... notably heavier than my Ogio Silencer Cart when loaded but didn't feel any heavier once on the push-cart.  The 9" size and slightly smaller pocket footprint makes it a lot less bulbous and attention-grabbing than full-size 10" Staff bags I've had in the past that have never made it to the course.  On a riding cart, I don't think it would look out of place at all next to a C130 or similar cart bag.

Ehhhh. I work at a golf park with a lot of Koreans and all they use are staff bags which makes no sense to me. I have the titleist 4-up bag that has literally 4 pockets and no waterbottle holder. So when I see them walking holes with that big bag it just blows my mind they like lugging that thing around.

recently purchased a mid size titleist staff bag to be used on my clicgear push cart and i could not be more happy. I made the switch because we have had the worst summer ever here in central Ontario, and if you are not willing to haul a ton of gear for the weather you cant really play that much in Canada.  It is the same size as 80% of cart bags and it sits perfectly but with superior quality and storage. I am now part of the converted. I have had a lot of complements on the bag and it has just proved to me again.... NO ONE CARES WHAT BAG YOU USE!!! play what works for you and your needs, as long as you are getting out there , enjoying the game and playing quick, we will be fast friends

In these politically correct times we are no longer allowed to mock people on the grounds of height, sex, sexual orientation, weight, hair colour, race, religion, disability or hair length.  I guess that just leaves staff bags!

As an amateur with a staff bag here's my pro's and cons:

Pros:
Holds a lot of stuff, rain gear, food, drinks, sunglasses...whatever you need
Can hold extra clubs without issues (in case you are testing some extras)
Fits well on push cart or cart
long lasting/durable
protects clubs well (including shafts)
stylish (if you're into them)
Rain protection is fantastic

Cons:
Heavy
Not walker friendly if you don't have push cart
Zippers tend to be the first thing that breaks
If you get the full sized staff bag, it's sometimes too fat to fit on cart or push cart very well

I have a Titleist staff bag. I bought it for a great price when I was taking golf trips about 20 years ago before kids and the advancements in carry bags. Now it just sits in the basement collecting dust and clubs. It doesnt have the same amount of storage space that my sun mountain has.
Didnt buy it to be cool or say look at me. I bought it b/c it was sturdier than my ping hoofer for traveling.

I have a Tiger Woods Buick Open 2008 staff bag. Only comments I have received were basically "cool bag" and "where did you get that, I want one". I guess the world really is different away from the internet.

I walk and carry, so they're not for me.  But I could see why someone would dig one if he or she rides.  They must have visual appeal and certainly plenty of room.  This seems a "to each his/her own" situation.

Thank you! Love my DLX! :) Not really a staff bag though.

Yes, In my man cave.....



I’m just kidding, everyone is entitled to carry what they want, I’d love the space, but’s two reasons for me; stand bag is more versatile, and I don’t like being a billboard for anyone not paying for my clubs

Started off with a hand me down staffer,... Gone back to a stand bag... Don't think I would want one of these battery powered push carts

I had a Ping staff bag back in the day bags even had stands. I remember how revolutionary the first Ping hoofer was. The options then were a carry bag or a staff bag and the concept of a "mid" staff bag was just starting. I worked for years in a golf shop and the Ping rep had demo a bag that he let me have it. I took grief for quite some time (my brothers still remind me about this bag). Might be my personality, but I could not have cared less. I rode in a cart 100% of the time and really liked having enough room in my bag for all of my gear. I actually felt like my clubs had better protection also.

I am just returning to the game after years on the sideline. I have my new AP3s (replacing 10-year old X-22s) and am contemplating what bag to get. I am a bit bummed that no one has figured out how to build a great cart bag that can be carried as necessary. I still will ride 100% of the time that I can, but would like a bag that does not have to get swapped out by the caddy when you are at a walking only facility (i.e. LACC, Erin Hills, Whistling Straits, Bandon, etc.). I really like the >=2017 Titleist cart bags (either deluxe or lightweight). I have no problem if anyone wants to go bigger for a staff bag, but do not see the reasons considering the availability of cart bags that offer most of the same benefits you would get in a staff bag.

Anyone got their hands on the Rogue Mini Staffbag? Would love to see some real life pictures.
Cheers,
