5 Sun Mountain Bags Win 2017 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice

Five Sun Mountain golf bags were named winners of 2017 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice awards this spring. Winning Sun Mountain products included the 2Five for Best Lightweight Carry Bag, 3.5 LS for Best Golf Carry Bag, 5.5 LS as the Best Hybrid Golf Bag, C-130 for Best Golf Cart Bag, and the ClubGlider Meridian as Best Golf Travel Bag. The 2Five is the lightest full-featured golf bag on the market, weighing in at the scant 2 1/2 pounds. The 3.5 LS weighs 3 1/2 pounds and is designed for the golfer who likes an ultra-lightweight bag but wants a few more features. The 5.5 LS hybrid bag is light enough to carry, at 5 1/2 pounds, while also featuring a bigger, 11-inch diameter top and nine pockets. The C-130 offers the abundance of pocket space and golfer-friendly features that have kept it in the top spot for eight years, plus some new features such as Smart Straps that offer a new way to secure the bag to a cart. In the travel cover category, Golf Digest wrote, “The Sun Mountain Meridian ClubGlider, with its retractable rolling legs, moves so effortlessly through airports it’s as if you have a golf-bag valet escorting your clubs everywhere from check-in to baggage claim and beyond. No tip required.” Read the Golf Digest Best Bags story. Read the Golf Digest Best Travel Cover...
