I still disagree with this.

It's not really an opinion Bill.

Bollocks. (I always wanted to use that word :-))

Not bollocks.

This is really the only point we're arguing and I wholeheartedly disagree.

Again, not really an opinion.

That's a lot more stress on my shoulder than a golf bag and if were an awkward position, you'd think I'd hurt my shoulder a lot more.

And yet some golfers never have back injuries, and others do. Some carpet installers get really bad knees, others don't.

For all the times you want to talk about experience and "anecdata" in other topics, you're saying this here now?

It's well within a perfectly natural range of motion for the shoulder.

So is throwing a baseball. Then why do all those MLB pitchers keep having injuries and surgeries?

"Leading to an increased chance of injury" can be interpreted as, "oh I better not do this because I'll hurt myself."

Nobody here is doing that, except you arguing against what you think other people might take it as.

I'm out.

With all the shit I have in my bag, I never carry it, push cart all the way. The only time I carry is when I play left-handed. 😂

I see all the stuff about back/shoulder, but the reason I switched to push (over pull) was my wrists. I don't understand how you can put all that pressure on your wrists, over and over, and not feel it. Two wheelers are almost as bad as carrying.

I have always walked and carried.  I recognize that a good push cart requires less energy than carrying in almost all cases.  For me it is just habit though I was thinking about push carts recently as I am not getting any younger.

Carrying a bag does allow one to take a few short cuts.  It also feels easier when going up hill, perhaps because the push cart requires one to engage the arms and upper back.   And let's face it, carrying the bag looks cooler and more macho!  😉

Shouldn't the thread title be "Carry, Push or Caddie"?  Did Mary Queen of Scots have a caddie?

Yes, he was beheaded when she was for carrying one extra niblick.

So apparently I do pull my cart with my arm to my side. Guess that makes my argument about my shoulder moot, because I’m not pulling with my arm behind me at all.

Thats what I get for commenting on what I think I do rather than what I actually do 🤦🏻

I don’t know about this one, though. I mean almost any pulling exercise you do is going to put more stress on your wrists than pulling a cart. I guarantee you can deadlift a lot more weight than the force your cart puts on your hands. Or doing pull-ups. Or simply hanging from a bar.

And a pull cart wobbles. You look like a duck from behind.

Back in the day you thought about girls, now you think about push carts.

Push cart for me. My bag weighs well over 30lbs.

No need to put my back, and shoulders in harm's way hauling that weight around.

I do have a smaller bag with fewer clubs, and gear I will carry sometimes.  Not very often though.

Yes, the R&A was pretty draconian back in those days. Slightly less so now.

Like I said with all the shit in my bag I never carry it. I usually have 2 or 3 bottles of Gatorade a couple ice packs, a lunch, sometimes a couple beers. Pull carts don’t do justice.

No, not by a long shot. Pulling > carrying.

It's not that you're pulling. It's that you're pulling a pull cart...

Just messing with you.
