Titleist lead stand bag trend on tour

There seems to be a growing trend for tour players to use stand bags in tournaments. Having these bags seen on tour is only going to help with bag sales in-store. Titleist, in particular, has given their Tour Staff the option to use the Titleist Players 4 Plus model with more than 50 of the world’s best and their caddies testing it throughout January on both the PGA and European Tours.

Rafa Cabrera Bello, Sung Jae Im, Bernd Wiesberger, Ian Poulter, Byeong Hun An, JT Poston, Justin Harding and Charley Hoffman were all among those to use the Players 4 Plus during four PGA Tour (Sentry Tournament of Champions, Sony Open) and European Tour (Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic) events.

The Players 4 Plus is one of four feature-rich bags in the Titleist Players Collection, designed for dedicated golfers seeking a lightweight stand bag without sacrificing storage or durability. Now available in four different colourways, it has been engineered to offer the versatility and comfort of a lightweight stand bag – but with extra storage options.

Charley Hoffman, winner of four career PGA Tour events, said: “At home, I use the Players 4 Plus on a regular basis. It’s light but it’s big enough to fit all the clubs and they don’t get jammed in there. It’s easy to stand up, it’s easy to get around. It’s an unbelievable bag – when you’re walking down the fairway it feels like it’s just a small backpack when you’ve got 14 clubs, golf balls, gloves and all that other stuff in there. It’s nice to go home and have the best stand bag in all of golf.”

The Players 4 Plus is for the golfer seeking added storage in a lightweight stand bag, with a larger top cuff than the Players 4, in addition to seven distinct pockets, including: a dedicated tee pocket above the removable ball pocket; a waterproof valuables pocket and full length apparel pocket; and dedicated rangefinder and lined water bottle pockets.

High-grade aluminum legs and advanced hinged bottom for best-in-class stability and durability

Self-balancing, convertible strap system with dual density foam straps for long lasting comfort

Lightweight, tour-inspired low-profile top cuff with four full-length dividers and seven distinct pockets

4 colorways | 7 pockets | 1.95kg | £170


The Players 4 Plus is now available in golf shops worldwide.
