The Eazy Bag has wheels on the base and a convenient handle for pushing, allowing limited “lifting or carrying” of the bag. It features a unique U-shaped front opening for easy club removal with no lifting of clubs over the bag edge. A unique club lock system keeps clubs in place--every club to have its proper place, allowing immediate identification of the club you want, and it limits any banging of clubs while cart is moving. Other features include a zippered, clear vinyl rain cover for easy access to clubs without exposing the other clubs to the rain. There are ample pockets for personal items and four ball/tee holders which are attached to the front bag exterior.
