What are the best lightweight golf bags that you should be gaming?

There’s two types of golfers in the world: those who use cart bags and those who use lightweight carry bags. So what’s the big debate about?

Well, lightweight bags are really handy if you’re looking to preserve your energy and put more effort into your scores as opposed to lugging round a big heavy golf bag on the back of a trolley.

It also saves you time as there is none of that faffing about with putting the brakes on your trolley to stop it from rolling down a hill into the drink.
