The golf bag combines in itself all components for stable standing, rolling, sloped support, carrying on the shoulder or on the back and for transport in the lying or upright position without additional actions on the part of the golfer. The golf bag is easy to handle and can be transported in a compact manner. The golf bag includes a cylinder part (

2) provided with a belt system (

8), which is connected in a repeatedly detachable manner to a rollable bottom part (

1) tiltable in the direction of travel, on the one hand, and to a head part (

4) equipped with a pull-out grip (

7) and with a support device (

5) by means of a plurality of stabilizing longitudinal webs (

3) and (

3′), wherein the properties of the golf bag are guaranteed by wheels (

9) on the bottom part (

1) and a support device (

5) on the head part (

4) and the lightweight design and ability to be disassembled.

Claims

1. A golf bag comprising:

2. A golf bag in accordance with claim 1, wherein said bottom part is a light-weight, dimensionally stable, one-piece container with a base bent in a stepped pattern and with a fastening surface made in one piece with it vertically, said fastening surface having different heights in the vertical direction in relation to said base, said rest support, which makes possible stable vertical standing of the golf bag, is arranged at an outer portion of said base;

3. A golf bag in accordance with claim 2, wherein:

4. A golf bag in accordance with claim 2, wherein: said stabilizing longitudinal rods each include a lightweight hollow section and are connected to said fixing points of said inner portion of said base of said bottom part with one end and to said head part with another end, said reinforced longitudinal rod is reinforced by an additional inner tube and is connected on a wheel side of the golf bag to one of said fixing points of said inner portion of said base of said bottom part, another end of said reinforced longitudinal rod is connected to said head part via a mounting surface.

5. A golf bag in accordance with claim 1, wherein: said cylinder part is formed of a flexible and stable material and is equipped at upper and lower edges with a plurality of mounting openings, which are connected via fastening elements to a fastening surface of said bottom part and to said head part in a repeatedly detachable manner; a plurality of stabilizing strips made of a flexible material are arranged coaxially at an inner surface of said cylinder part; said belt system and a belt grip are arranged at an outer surface of said cylinder part extending axially along said reinforced longitudinal rod, rings are arranged at said stabilizing strips.

6. A golf bag in accordance with claim 1, wherein: said head part is a closed band material; a mounting surface is arranged at said head part, a bracket is arranged opposite said mounting surface; a front surface of said head part is stabilized by a first longitudinal strut and by two additional longitudinal struts arranged in a vertically offset pattern, which are fastened with one end to said mounting surface and with another end to said bracket, wherein all said longitudinal struts form a horizontally extending triangular hollow space.

7. A golf bag in accordance with claim 6, wherein: said toggle lever mechanism is arranged at said mounting surface; said support device with said support legs is arranged at said bracket; said toggle lever mechanism and said support device are connected to one another movably via said clamping system; said clamping system is mounted in said triangular hollow space formed by said stabilizing longitudinal struts, wherein said movable clamping system and said longitudinal struts are surrounded and covered by a piece of flexible material to prevent injury to the bands of the user.

8. A golf bag in accordance with claim 6, wherein: at least two crosswise struts, extend in parallel to one another and are each detachably connected to the said head part by of screws, are arranged in said head part at right angles to said longitudinal struts, wherein said longitudinal struts and said crosswise struts subdivide said head part into a plurality of head openings, and heads of said screws are designed as a base part of a snap fastener.
