A big bag is totally impractical.

Why?

I've got an old Taylor Made 500 staff bag in my basement... Got it at Dick's for like $25 like 12 years ago... I use it to hold my spare putters... Probably won't see the course ever but it looks cool

I rock a staff bag for pushing and when I'm taking a buggy. There's tons of room for rain gear and all the other stuff you'd want in your bag and you don't have to put a puzzle together to get it all in there. I rock a light weight carry bag when I'm hoofing it but have to be a lot more conscientious about what's going in there and what I'll need that day. I have a sweet Sunday bag for short courses, practice and time with the kids.

Long and short of it, staff bags are awesome, but it all depends on what you need from a bag for a particular round. But it helps if you're playing off a low single digit lol.

I actually had an experience with this the other night.
I stopped at the range  before work  guy was getting out of his I’m guessing 100k Mercedes and proceeds to pull at Scotty Cameron staff bag out of trunk. From my knowledge 3000 dollar plus bag. With what looked like brmad new Taylor made drover woods and Titleist ap3 irons.
As he set up next to me at range I couldn’t help but admire bag. And clubs. But as i so found out he couldn’t hit any club consistent and ha dappeares the man just has money and is just throwing it around to buy the best of the best equipment. Possibly he just started playing or perhaps he’s under the impression that money can make you a better player. Ether way the bag was awesome looking but defiantly wouldn’t bring that type of money bag out to a public range. Just saying.

Bet many of those who snuff at golfers with staff bags, drive muscle cars but never been a professional race car driver...

Staff bags are functional, but sometimes they can make you look like an a$$. I’m all for them. I had a staff bag as an amateur and have one as a professional. I love the space in the bag. It can hold rain gear, golf shoes, a million golf balls, knick nacks and so on. I don’t care how I look, if I’ve got the game for it or not. I quite frankly don’t care about what people think of me. If it’s functional it’s for me

Love my staff bag. My Titleist bag is getting a little beat up and worse for wear after the last 10ish years or so. Once I finished up with high school and some college golf, I didn't care at all about walking anymore.

I'm on the hunt for a good deal on the new blue Taylormade Staff bag now.

Gave my dad the 2011 season opener Taylormade staff bag I won on here. He emails me every week saying how much he loves it and all the compliments he gets on it. My father is going to be 72 this July. Does anyone think he is a poser or doesn't deserve a staff bag to wheel around?

Who gives a crud what kind of bag someone has.
I have been looking for one of those for ever!! Sharl Swarzel won the master's in that year!

Just thinking.... If you got colours for state/province/ country in another sport ... Would you have a custom bag made with your team logo, number and colours?

I have a Powacaddy electric cart, and use a Sun Mountain Sync. I really don't like the 14 way top. If I can find a nice staff bag at Play it Again Sports, I'll probably get it.
