Travel Golf Bags / May 2012

Over the past year GolfTest USA has received many requests from golfers asking us to test travel golf bags. We contacted some of the top golf bag manufacturers and two of the companies submitted bags to us. We had golfers use the travel golf bags when they traveled by plane. GolfTest USA then asked each golfer to rate several criteria on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being best. We then complied all the results and posted them below.

The golfers rated all the bags very highly though there were a few travel golf bags that stood out from the rest. The bags that achieved the highest ratings have been awarded GolfTest USA’s “Seal Of Excellence”. Those travel golf bags have been designated with three asterisks after them.

Let us know if there are other travel bags you would like us to test and we will contact the manufacturers and see if they will participate in our next testing cycle. requestatest@golftestusa.com

Over several years of testing GolfTest USA has determined that when subjective and objective ratings from our Test Administrators and the golfers taking the test are combined the overall rating is a very accurate indication of the actual performance of any particular golf product. There is only a small difference in the ratings yet even a couple of percentage points difference from one club to another is significant enough to indicate a club that performs at a superior level to other clubs.
