Hi all, just returning to golf after a 20 year absence. Began playing pretty steadily in 1990, stopped in 1996 for a variety of reasons. A RSI to my right shoulder kept me away for the most part. A few weeks ago in Westin, FL, my wife and I decided to hit a bucket at Bonaventure GC. Shoulder was good, now I have been on the range and par 3 courses. With shoulder still OK, have decided to jump back in.
I am in the Princeton area, and hope to get on a real course in the next month or so. In the process of upgrading my 25 year old cheap starter clubs, and started with a Callaway XR 16. I'm sure there will be more to follow...
Bonus....Now I'm retired, and can actually practice!
Really, because to me it equates more along the lines of when people wear a weighted vest or ankle weights when they go for a walk or run to increase the benefits of their workout. I've yet to see any negative impact on my round because I'm carrying my bag. I play with people who use carts all the time, I don't think anything is wrong with them using a cart. I don't get self gratification from carrying either, I just do it when I feel like walking. Also it's one less thing to mess with when I get to the course and before I leave. Besides, as I said, the nice carts like the ones Erik posted are much more expensive than I'm willing to pay when I at least one or two more clubs to get fit for.
