A couple of years back, when we first wrote Part 1of this blog, we claimed that high-quality, single strap golf stand bags were as rare as a blue unicorn. We searched extensively throughout the electronic golf marketplace and discovered that although not quite as rare as the mythical beast, there were not many options.
In the few years since then, some manufacturers have increased their single strap offerings. For the most part, these options are not exclusively single strap bags (except for some full-featured caddie or staff bags). Instead, some manufacturers are offering their dual strap bags in single strap configurations. To be candid, that means that the bags are not fully optimized for a single strap.
This post, both Part 1 and Part 2, has been fully updated for 2020.
A few years back, we were asked for our recommendation for the best single strap golf stand bag.
The person who asked didn’t like the hassle of the four-point, backpack style strap systems that have become the standard in the industry. He felt that a single strap style was significantly easier to put on and take off.
At the time, we thought that the request would be straightforward, although we couldn’t quickly recall any current high-quality models with the single strap configuration.
