Most of our GolfLink reviews are club-focused, but other equipment, like your golf bag, can have an impact on your overall enjoyment of your next round.

After all, you need to access your tees, water bottle and jacket easily and without losing time that you could be spending golfing instead. If you need a quick refresher, we also have a golfLink guide to golf bag etiquette.

New Players Golf Bags

Titleist is introducing new golf bags for the 2021 season. These include bags in both stand and hybrid categories. Their newest bag collection offers options for all golfers, whether they’re looking for more storage or a lightweight bag.

Let’s look at the four stand bag options in the collection first. Here are some of the differences you’ll find between these four different types. All of these bags weigh in at under 3.4 pounds.

  • Players 4: a well-rounded golf bag offering durability, storage and lightweight feel
  • Players 4 Plus: the versatility and comfort of a lightweight stand bag combined with extra storage options. Includes two external water bottle pockets.
  • Players 4 StaDry: durable performance for rainy conditions with premium double strap
  • Players 4 Plus StaDry: performance option for golfers who play in all conditions, plus waterproof materials and seam-sealed construction. Full-size apparel pocket.

How to Choose Between Stand Bags and Hybrid Bags

There’s two factors to help you decide which option is best for you. First, do you mostly play in dry conditions or is rain and wet weather a factor? Second, how much storage do you need?

Now that we’ve covered the stand bags, let’s see what Titleist has to offer with their hybrid collection of golf bags. If you’re a golfer who likes to walk and ride, you’re going to love these options. The hybrid bags weigh in at under 6 pounds each.

Hybrid Collection

The Titleist hybrid collection (including two different golf bags) gives you options - combining the best of premium cart and stand bag features. The cart strap loop gives you pocket access when fixed to the cart, and the new push cart rest gives you peace of mind while walking the course.

The main advantage of these golf bags is the NEW leg system with a pushcart rest for enhanced push-cart compatibility.

  • Hybrid 5: Lightweight, cart friendly design
  • Hybrid 14: Superior organization and storage

Any of these bags would be a great choice. The main things you need to decide are whether you prefer to walk or ride, how light you need your bag to be and which special features and pockets you are looking for. Here’s a rundown:
