If you are in the market for a new golf bag and are not a PGA Tour or LPGA member, a stand bag is probably the way to go. If you intend to walk and carry your bag, its weight is especially important. Another thing is look for a bag with plenty of pockets and spots where you can easily store your stuff. And even though dividers can help keep things organized, they can still add weight. Opting for a bag with fewer dividers can save weight, but cramming three or four clubs into one section can be cumbersome when the grips and shafts are cluttered.
