TGW 14-Way Deluxe Stand Bag
-- Diego Garcia, TGW Staff
When it comes to the TGW 14-way Deluxe stand golf bag, we’ve put our knowledge of the game to work. We used a “for golfers, by golfers” approach to design this bag. For more than 15 years, TGW has been selling the best golf bags in the game so we know what golfers want when it comes to a stand bag. If that wasn’t enough, we took this bag out on the course and put it to the test for a proper review.
This bag is designed for golfers who do a lot of walking on the course, but it’s also functional on a golf cart. One of the things that makes the 14-way Deluxe stand bag so versatile is the amount of storage. It boasts a total of nine pockets. That’s the first thing that caught the eye of Diego, our product reviewer.
“The first thing I noticed was this bag just has a ton of pockets. I carry enough stuff in my golf bag and I felt like I had an abundance of pockets,” said Diego Garcia, TGW Staff Reviewer.
That’s a ton of storage with many different types of pockets. A large pocket on the side is handy for extra apparel or rain gear. An insulated pocket is designed to keep your drink cool. There’s plenty of pockets for golf balls, tees and accessories as well as your valuables and rangefinder.
Another great thing about this bag is there’s a space for every club in your set. It’s built with a 14-way top divider system and includes three full-length dividers to reduce binding. This is a great way to organize your clubs, get them in and out of the bag easily and not feel like you’re jamming clubs together. That’s not a common feature you see on stand bags but TGW felt it was important for the organization of your clubs.
“All the clubs fit in there very easily and it looks very clean. As I started playing with this bag, I really realized how easy and accessible everything became.” Diego mentioned.
As a stand bag, this bag needed to be comfortable to carry and it certainly is. There’s extra padding on the side to cushion any contact against the hips. The padded dual harness straps are also lightweight and comfortable. “The straps on this bag are extremely comfortable, it just made walking very easy,” Diego told us.
Finally, there are all the necessary accessories you want on-hand out on the golf course. A Velcro glove patch on the side of the bag keeps your glove handy. The large towel ring holds your towel to the bag so you can easily clean your club or golf ball. There’s also an umbrella holder for quick access if it starts to rain.
If you’re looking for a new stand bag, whether you walk the golf course or use a cart, check out the TGW 14-Way Deluxe stand bag. It’s loaded with storage, essential features and value that every golfer will appreciate.
TGW Redwood Cart Bag
-- Diego Garcia, TGW Staff
You don’t spend more than 15 years reviewing and selling the best golf bags in the game without learning a thing or two. So when TGW decided to make our own cart bag, it was time to put that knowledge to work. By studying what golfers want, we were able to design the TGW Redwood cart bag. It’s fully loaded for use on a cart and packed with value. Then we took it out on the golf course to put it to the test.
Right off the bat, the Redwood cart bag meets all your storage demands with a total of nine pockets. There’s a place for everything you want to carry out on the golf course. Two full-length apparel pockets easily store extra apparel such as outerwear or rain gear so you are prepared for anything. The lined valuables pocket is the best place to stow your wallet, keys and cell phone during play. You can bring your favorite beverages with you and keep them cold with a cooler pocket that includes drain holes. Plenty of accessory pockets allow you to store plenty of golf balls, tees, a rangefinder and more.
Diego, one of our reviewers for this bag, was impressed with the storage. “This bag is going to have a ton of pockets, easily accessible for anything you have,” he said.
Our second reviewer, Chris, agreed. “Also what’s great, when this bag is sitting on a cart, is how accessible all the pockets are even in the cart. There’s no trying to reach around and getting your hands scraped up.”
Not only is there a pocket for all your accessories, there’s a dedicated place for every club in your set. The Redwood bag has 14 full-length dividers to organize your clubs in an easy-to-find order while it’s on your cart. An external putter well keeps your putter handy and easily fits oversized grips. It will truly fit all sized grips, we even fit a baseball bat in the putter well to prove it!
“We played a few holes today and I used this for my clubs, normally I’ve been a stand bag guy, but just riding around in the cart I could easily hear less of my clubs clanging together with the 14-way divider,” Chris told us.
Diego liked the way the top divider kept everything organized and easy to see. “It makes a nice descending flow for your clubs to sit in here. You can easily see everything and get everything pulled out just as you would need,” he explained.
This bag is also impressive in how easy it is to get around.The Redwood weighs less than seven pounds and has two lift handles integrated into the top of the bag. It even has plenty of functional accessories. A Velcro glove patch provides a handy place to keep your golf glove when you take it off. The large towel ring lets you clip your towel on for easy cleaning of your golf clubs, golf balls, hands and more. You won’t be caught in the rain either with an umbrella holder and matching rain hood.
“It’s just a great golf bag,” commented Diego.
If you’re a golf cart user looking for a new bag, check out the TGW Redwood cart bag. It’s loaded with storage and has a place for every club, incredibly functional and light on your budget.
Ogio 2018 Silencer Cart Bag
-- Tom Gocke, Global VP of Ogio
Ogio has been creating innovative golf bags for years now. Perhaps their biggest innovation is called the Silencer Club Protection System. We talked with Tom Gocke, global vice president at Ogio, about this revolutionary technology.
Ogio understands that your golf clubs are an investment. As a dedicated golfer, you want to protect that investment. They decided the best way to extend the life of your clubs was to minimize contact. Think about every time you’ve walked the course with your stand bag or strapped your bag onto a cart. With each step or bump in the cart path, you can hear your clubs click together, creating contact and distracting noise. That’s why Ogio created the Silencer golf bags.
Ogio’s Silencer Club Protection System is a unique design that creates a space for every club and holds them there. The top and bottom of the bag actually work together to hold each club in place. Instead of just using individual full-length dividers, the mechanism at the bottom of the bag holds onto the grips while the top locks onto the shaft so your clubs don’t move. You can even hold the bag upside down with a full set of clubs inside!
“The Silencer system essentially locks every golf club in place so it doesn’t bang which, one, reduces the noise and two, eliminates the damage to your clubs,” Tom Gocke, Global VP of Ogio told us.
This revolutionary design is available in both cart and stand bag options. You get all the storage you need for a day on the golf course in addition to the unique golf club protection. Here’s what one of our customers had to say after using the cart bag.
“I have used this bag for 4 rounds now and couldn't be happier. The slots are deep enough and the clubs stay in place nicely and do not rattle! I have a jacket, 30 golf balls, a water bottle, sun screen, rain pants, and a club hood in the pockets and still have room.”
If you’re in the market for a new bag soon, give the Ogio Silencer cart bag or stand bag a look. Club protection is important and Ogio is changing the way it’s done on the golf course. If that’s high on your list of priorities in a new golf bag, you can’t go wrong with an Ogio Silencer.
