What is the correct way to arrange Golf Clubs in a bag?

To be honest, there is no correct way to do it. Every single golfer in the world has their own method of how and where they keep their clubs, how they organize the bag, and how efficiently they do it.

It depends on various factors such as the type of your bag, the pockets present in your bag, the size of your clubs, etc.

Anyway, it is not about the correct way. It is about the most efficient way. We are going to provide you with an efficient way to use which you can properly arrange golf clubs in a bag. So let us start.

Steps to organizing golf clubs in the bag

As we know that there is not one single method of arranging a golf club. So, we have compiled a rather easy to follow stepwise instruction for doing just that. The instructions are given below:

Step 1: The first thing that you need to do is take out all the clubs from your existing bag and line them up in either the ascending/descending order.

Step 2: Now to begin the rearrangement, clear the bag of all additional types of equipment such as balls or gloves or anything you have there. Also, while you are at it, do clean the bag thoroughly to remove any dust or debris present in it. You don’t need to clean it if you have a new bag!

Step 3: Now keep your woods at the top which is closest to the bag’s strap. Some bags come with individual slots and if you use these kinds of bags, it is easy. Just place the clubs in descending order from the driver in left to right fashion. On the other hand, if there is only one slot at the top, you need to insert all of your woods in this single pocket. You can keep your ball retrievers with your woods.

Step 4: The next thing you need to do is to place your 3-4 longest irons in the pockets below (and sometimes to the left) of the bag’s top part.  Also, for 3-4 iron shots can be placed in the same kind of pocket to the right.

Step 5: For wedges and putters, most bags provide bottom slots and many golfers place their putters in this bottom slot as it provides easy access. You can also hookup an external pouch or a device to the bag if that is what you want to do.  It can be kind of a smart solution if you use the putter which is hanging outside the bottom part of the bag.

Step 6: Your clubs are now arranged. Shift your focus on other equipment now! This is pretty easy, just use the extra pockets and keep your equipment there. Keep the most used equipment on a pocket that is easy to access and so on. The pocket below where the wedges are stored is the most accessible pocket and this is a perfect pocket for storing your balls.

Step 7: The use of side pockets of a bag can differ in a lot of ways. Some golfers use these pockets for storing additional types of equipment like ball retrievers, tees, markers, etc while others store personal items like sunscreen, repellents, deodorants, small tee bags, watches, etc.  Depending on what you need for your golfing session, you can store any item that you want.
