I use a pushcart 90% of the time.  The only time I ride is if I am on certain courses or it is a best ball / social round.  I have a Clicgear 3.0 which I bought a couple of years ago and I love it.  It has a cooler bag which straps easily on and I also have the gps holder as well.  I like the cart because it holds a lot of stuff and I get good exercise when I play.  More importantly, I have saved a ton of money in cart fees.  My Clicgear paided for itself in a 1/2 a year.
As a golfer who struggles with getting to 99 I have found that consistent play is the key.  What is hurting me this year is I will have three great holes in row, have something bad happen, then watch the wheels fall off for six more holes.  I then repeat it on the back nine.  What kills me is that I have been in position to make birdie / par / bogey many times then I will botch something easy (three putt is my theme this year).  In 10 rounds this year I have two birdies...

Wow, a weekend with Natalie Gublis!  And you get to play golf too!
4 courses in the last 20 rounds.  I have a regular Sunday game at my home course and I played league at another

I pledge to create a golfer in 2014.
Seeing how I have four of the Rotella's books I say he is a good one.  However, one of the first books I read on the mental game and approach was Dr. Joe Parent "Zen Golf."  I have found myself going back to this book every year because I like the Zen warrior approach to golf.
I do a lot of wedge practice in my back yard using trees and birdfeeder posts as a the pins / targets.
