We continue with our new golf bag reviews with our Best golf cart bag 2021/2022 rankings list. We actually did not have a dedicated ranking in last year’s reviews for cart bags so this will be the first time they get a space of their own.
At this point we have gone through the new scoring calculation methodology for our golf bags 2021/2022 rankings lists several times. We will avoid doing it in detail here again. Interested in knowing how are scores are calculated? Take a look at our best golf bags for 2021/2022 master ranking list. There you can find the methodology explained in more depth and also see all of the golf bags we have reviewed across all sub-categories in 2021/2022.
While compiling our best golf cart bag options for 2021/2022 we remained consistent with our new 2021/2022 ranking lists approach. We prioritised the gear that came to market in the latter part of 2021 and beyond. Since this is the first time we are transitioning to the new approach the timeline may be a little imperfect. What is for sure is these bags where not considered in last years golf bag rankings.
Remember our new scoring methodology does not hand out 98%. It just is not possible.
There are always tradeoffs which effect the balance of the equation. Paying an overly high price for more features may create mathematical limitation on the number of points/percentile the golf bag is able to obtain.
What we can assure you is that whatever the score the bag, the top ranked bags will provide you with the best price-quality ratio.
As mentioned, last year’s reviews generated a ton of data. The data specifically relevant for our 2021/2022 golf cart bags baseline is:
- Average RRSP: $238.41
- Average weight: 6.06 lbs
- Average no. of pockets: 10.05
- Average no. of colors: 4.68
This gives you a quick view on how your bag relates to the alternatives on the market. Keep in mind there are additional features and characteristics that are included in the final scoring and ranking.
As with all of the 2021/2022 sub-category rankings lists, we will limit it to our top 3 positions. As new products come to market of course the list may change so you might want to check back in from time to time. What we do hope is that you will profit from our new methodology in finding the best golf bag that fits your needs.
Sun Mountain Sync 14-Way Divided Cart Bag
Sun Mountain is one of the producers that have got their full line of bags to market well ahead of the rest. On several occasions their bags have just missed out on our top rankings spots so am happy to see the Sync 14-Way Golf Cart Bag finally make the cut with a strong 71.50%
We are firm believers in progress and while some golfers take issue with the molded bottom not being as compatible with older model push carts, we don’t. The fact is that when the Sync 14-Way Golf Cart Bag is coupled with a suitable push cart the fit is far more secure and comfortable to use that it would be without. The same people have probably bought a new TaylorMade driver for 3 consecutive years. So, relax, do your due diligence on integration with you push cart and enjoy!
