Here are 8 lightweight golf bags perfect for walking the course

Lightweight golf bags

With these lightweight golf bags, you won't have to sacrifice functionality for comfort.

An intimate relationship exists between your caddie and your golf bag. Your caddie knows how to fix your straps faster than you do, which shoulder to place your bag upon so your tags don’t stab them in the stomach, and how to balance their gait so as to keep your clubs from flying out as they traverse down a hill.

It’s fitting, then, that someone whose job it is to carry golf bags should be the one to recommend bags perfect for carrying. Whether you’re the one slinging the bag on your shoulder, or you’re shelling out for someone else to do so, here are the best lightweight golf bags, in the opinion of a (former) caddie.
