While duct tape does the trick for most household repairs, if some is holding your golf bag together then it’s probably time for something new.
Whether it’s a stand bag or meant for a cart, there are a ton of great options available for bags, and just because you won one at a corporate tournament doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for your game.
While the Canadian golf season is starting to wind down across the country, it’s time to take stock of your set up. And if the bag that’s carrying your clubs, balls, and anything else you need on the course is looking a little worse-for-wear, then GlobalGolf.ca has a handful of new bags worth checking out for 2021 from the biggest brands in golf.
Here are a few to get you started.
Ping HooferLite 2020 Stand Bag
One of the most iconic names in golf bags, the PING Hoofer, was back in 2020 with some fresh designs. The PING HooferLite weighs just five pounds and has a four-way divider with seven pockets. The lightweight PING HooferLite has convertible straps for easy carrying and cart-strap channel for attaching to a cart. Featured pockets include one meant for apparel (full-length zipper), a dedicated range-finder pocket, and a valuables pouch.
On the cart bag side of things, PING is offering the PING Traverse, which is newly designed and is the company’s lightest ever cart bag. It’s got a 14-way top organizer and 13 pockets including a large cooler pocket and full-length apparel pocket.
Callaway Fairway C Double Strap Stand Bag

The Ogio Shadow Fuse 304 stand bag is chalk full of new stuff for 2020 to make carrying your bag more enjoyable.
