Is it possible to convert a single shoulder strap to a double strap strap configuration (like in golf stand bag straps where you can carry on both shoulders....)
Obviously there are only two D rings on the bag. I thought you needed a third one but maybe not. Anyone know of one I can buy?

I think it depends on how you want the bag to hang.
If you want the bag to hang vertically, with the side that is between the d-rings against your back, i think you could try two single shoulder straps with the padded area asymmetrically aligned and the straps fairly short. This would give you two straps, but I think the bag would hang rather awkwardly and probably be uncomfortable against your back.
Another option, perhaps closer to what you had in mind, is to hang the bag against your rear with the d-rings pointed up. You could also do this with two single straps, except that you attach both ends of one strap to one dring and both ends of the other strap to the other dring. Depending on the breadth of your shoulders and the distance between the drings this might work reasonably.
Finally, if your bag has a carry handle on the side with the d-rings, you could use the same strap designed for golf bags. This one http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002WS75N8/ appears to be designed to connect to two d-rings and around a handle in the middle.
Or shoulder straps designed for disc golf bags. Like this: http://www.amazon.com/Dga-Disc-Golf-Gel-Strapz-Grey/dp/B002KRZQIM/
They apparently use 4 d-rings, 2 on each side, but, except for potentially bouncing more, I don't know why it wouldn't work if you connected each side to just one d-ring.
Though, if you are going to use two straps or a harness like this, why not get a bag designed for backpack carry?
