Everything that's old is new again, and some things never really go out of style. Jones Sports Co.'s single-strap bags, which the company introduced in 1971, fits that description well.
These days, a new generation is donning the single-strap bags, looking for a more simplistic golf bag that as much reflects their connection to the game as it does a desire to look different than other golfers.
Responding to the growing popularity of their Players Series bags, Jones has added a trio of new colorways. The heathered polyester look in charcoal, brown and navy gives a modern flair to the bags, while maintaining the core of a Jones bag. The bag is 35 inches tall with a 7-inch opening and a two-way divider. There are two front pockets and one on the back (like those classic bags I had when I started playing golf). It doesn't have a stand, but the ground works just fine. Really.
Fitting somewhere between fully featured bags and Sunday bags, the Jones Players Series comes in at just 3 lbs., making it an easy carry.
Of course, if you love the look of the bag and want a double strap, you can buy one online and fit it accordingly.
The Jones Players Series bags are available now for $185 each.
