LA Times tells golfers to get fit carrying Sun Mountain’s Zero-G bag

Sun Mountain’s Zero-G lightweight golf bag is featured in an August 9 golf gear review by the Los Angeles Times.

Roy M. Wallack writes:

Riding a golf cart is so old-school. Golfers are interested in fitness like never before — with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and other top players working out to play better and physical conditioning increasingly recognized as a performance enhancer. The modern fit golfer enthusiastically walks the course and works on strength, aerobics and core with golf-specific fitness products. Those featured here were reviewed with the help of several serious sandbaggers.

Walk, don’t ride

Sun Mountain Zero-G bag: Freestanding club bag with backpack-style shoulder straps and hip belt designed for fatigue-free walking all day.

Likes: Works perfectly, keeping you out of the cart and on foot with little fatigue. The hip belt, the first on a golf bag, places almost all the bag’s weight on the hips — keeping one tester fresh through 18 holes. Includes numerous top-end features, such as automatic self-standing legs, waterproof rain hood, umbrella holder and pen pocket, numerous zippered pouches for balls, gloves, tees and sunscreen, a waterproof compartment, built-in handle and a utility loop for towels and brushes.

Dislikes: None.

Price: $220. 800-CARRYBAG;
