Some golfers like a little more chaos. For them the right spot for any given club in just in the bag. They are often the golfers digging around in the bag looking for their club while hoping that they did not forget their club 2 holes back. Then, on the other hand, there are the group of golfers who believe everything has its right place. These are the golfers who generally prefer structure and order. These are the golfers who prefer golf stand bags with 14-way dividers.
There are many Staff and Cart bags on the market with 14/15 dividers however the Stand golf bag market has far fewer offerings. This is mostly attributed to the fact that for those who are carrying their clubs there is an inclination to use smaller golf club sets thus minimising weight. We decided to take a better look at the golf stand bags with 14-way dividers market to come up with our “2021 Best of” list of recommendations. After coming up with our short list and further evaluations the Callaway Fairway 14 Stand Bag came out on top

The Fairway 14 Stand Bag according to Calloway is their most sold stand bag so it seems that Calloway golfers seem to prefer more structure than chaos. The bag has been well designed to maximize the amount of storage space without sacrificing its portability. Each of its 9 pockets has been constructed while paying attention to detail and purpose. The soft-lined valuables pocket with waterproof zipper, the cell phone sleeve or the insulated water bottle pocket are all welcomed features that allow you to focus on your game rather that where something has ended up in your bag.
We have raved in previous reviews about the comfort and support of the Callaway OptiFit strap gives and here it certainly is no different. For those looking to carry, there are few golf straps that can compete with OptiFit’s comfort and reduction of shoulder wear. Even if this list is aimed for those looking to carry it is worth pointing out that this bag doubles well for a cart bag if needed.
At 5.4 lbs, the Fairway 14 Stand Bag came in on the top third of the overall group, for the lightest golf stand bags with 14-way dividers. Coming up the 18th this may leave you that little bit extra in the tank to close out strong. The custom logo possibility on the ball pocket is something we are seeing a little more often in bag offerings but it still is a nice touch. In addition its 12 color options also lead the rankings list.
So, for those who are looking for the structure of a cart bag with the versatility of a stand bag we feel there is no better bag for you and this is why we have nominated the Callaway Fairway 14 Stand Bag the winner of our best golf stand bags with 14-way dividers list.
Our Runner Up – best golf stand bags with 14-way dividers
The runner up for the 2021 the best golf stand bags with 14-way dividers is the new Taylormade FlexTech Crossover Stand Bag. Actually, both of our top two picks scored equally atop of the rankings but I gave the edge to Calloway based on the fact that it comes in slightly less expensive than the FlexTech.

Weighing in at 5.5 lbs TaylorMade’s entry is on the good side of the bag weights we looked at and was more than manageable over 18 holes. The 14-way dividers did not cause me any issues while maneuvering my clubs to and from the bag and even my oversized putter was comfortably housed in the bag. The self-adjusting straps work well but don’t quite keep the pace of the Fairway 14 but make no doubt this bag still is a very comfortable carry and should not cause any golfer used to walking the course any worries.
The Flextech comes with a ton of space distributed over 10 pockets. The water-resistant stretch pocket is well placed at the top of the bag allowing for quick and easy access to your most valuable items. Also included is an Easy Chill cooler pocket is well insulated keeping drinks cold and food fresh on the warmest of days and with built in drainage keeps the inside of the bad dry.
Illustrating how little separates our top two picks the FlexTech also comes with a removable panel for adding your own logo as well as a cart-strap pass through to facilitate the use of a cart if ever needed. Its 5 color options are less than Callaway’s offering but are all smart looking so this should not be an issue for the would-be buyer.
As mentioned, this is a premium priced bag for the category but it really does have everything that you could ask for so if you don’t mind paying the little extra you would not be disappointed in your decision. It is for these reasons and more that the new TaylorMade FlexTech Crossover Stand Bag is an easy choice for runner up in our best golf stand bags with 14-way dividers rankings.
