US Am - saw caddie using push cart - Are they allowed on PGA or LPGA?

7 posts in this topic

I guess it makes sense for the Am since you potentially have more days and more rounds to caddie. Just wondering about the pro tours.

For the US AM, I'm guessing it was probably allowed by the local tournament committee? And no, the PGA and or LPGA does not allow push/pull carts as far as I know. At least I've never seen one used in all the years I've watched golf.

A friend played in the US Mid Am at Bandon Dunes a few years back and he used a push cart there. Didn't have a caddie.

A professional using a cart? That would not be professional.  It's also not professional for golfers to wear short pants when in play.  Also, seems that caddies can ONLY wear short pants so that we can see who is who.

I doubt there are rules against them, unless they are self propelled. There are times they are inconvenient, caddies bring tour bags very close to the tees and greens. They can be a pain where big side hills are encountered. A few of the players are using mid sized bags with legs instead of traditional tour bags. Really with the improved durability and efficiency of modern bags it is hard to justify traditional tour bags.

I noticed that too when watching the US Women's Am. Is the reason that push carts are not allowed on pro tours mainly based on tradition? Or is the PGA trying to create business for chiropractors? My back hurts just watching older caddies like Fluff lugging around a big staff bag.

I wasn't asking if a player is allowed, but whether a caddy is and nothing about dress code.
