How could a 2-wheeled cart ever be preferred to a 3-wheeler?

I have both. Although I usually carry, when I decide to take a cart, I select the 2-wheeler 90% of the time. It is lighter, more agile, and doesn't look like a baby stroller. It doesn't need a brake to keep it from rolling away. You can push or pull a 2-wheeler if you want to, something that really doesn't work well with 3 wheels. The only thing a 3-wheeler does a bit better is to handle a very large, heavy bag.

Maybe it's because I'm tall, but I've never found this to be very true.  You start to push a two-wheeler and the terrain changes a bit and the bottom of the bag digs into the ground and the handle buries into your groin.

 

I'm not a cart-er, so it doesn't affect me much, but I thought about it at one point and experimented with my dad's old two-wheeler and my brothers current 3-wheeler.  It took about 2 seconds for me to realize that 3-wheelers are 1000% better for me.

 

(Most of the time I use four-wheelers with motors though ;))  Or when I do walk, I carry.

You don't need to hit a brake pedal.

The brake hasn't worked on my Sun Mountain in years, and I've not had a problem.

2 wheeler is lighter and doesn't take up most of my trunk. If you have an apartment and have to climb three flights of stairs, a 3 wheeler is a problem.

Hmmmm, now I wonder if I have it laying around in my parents garage somewhere.

Here's a pic of one ... http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/291037374049?lpid=82

GD you must have picked up my old cleek after I traded it in. And the hosel was bent because I used to slam it on the ground a lot. a1_smile.gif

Definitely the Titleist 975's. Those were the posh drivers to have back when I was playing in high school. Old Ping Anser putters. The owner of the golf course I worked at in high school had an incredible collection of them.

Also, found these in an antique store today (lol). Was very close to picking them up for a mere $50. I may go back and get them tomorrow.

T-zoid Pro-II is the best iron ever made!!!  If I found a set in great condition I'd have a hard time passing.  I played this stick from 1996-2007 and absolutely loved them.

I talked them to $50 from $60, I think it's still a good deal. The faces were in really good shape, and I don't mind the bag chatter.
