Question Golf bag

I found a junior bag for $25 (with built in stand). I don't want a dedicated trailer for the clubs, nor can I afford to get a real trailer at this time. So cheap is the big word here.

So the plan is to get a junior bag, reduce my club count (I don't even carry a driver anymore), and then put the balls, shoes, misc items in my side bag to help balance the weight. I was thinking the best mount would be closest to the seat, vertically (because it is a junior bag, a rain cover wouldn't hold the clubs in).

So what would be the best way to secure it to my long tail? Do you think two adjustable bungee cords would be enough or would I be better with two tie down straps (or one of each)?

Ever do this setup before?
