I have a Sun Mountain.  Not sure what model but it's only a couple of years old.  It's a nice cart.  The only problem I had was the brake cable slipped out of the lock handle.  I guess the screw came loose or something.  It was so frayed that I couldn't put it back in.  I just fed some up from the wheel and adjusted everything as needed to get it long enough to cut a clean end off and thread back through.  The tire pump broke on the first use and was a pretty cheap POS.  Luckily I have a compressor in the garage.  Overall a nice cart, but I really don't think it's worth what they charge.  Works good for tying the dog to when I want to walk with her.

I think its awesome that they let dogs on the golf course.  I played in Austin, Tx at a muni last time I was down there and several people had dogs with them.  I can't fathom that being okay at the courses I play in Chicago.  I wish it was, I would probably be more inclined to bring my dogs with as its a great excuse for a walk, and they are great on the leash, so it would be no trouble to have them sit while I hit the ball.

Do you really believe that carts speed up the pace of play?  I guess it depends on the course, but if the course is well designed (the next tee is resonably close to previous green) I will argue that walking with golfers who play ready golf is faster.

I played a round last week and I rode (the cart was included in the price) and one of the golfers walked, at no point where we waiting on the walker (IE, he wasn't the reason we played slow) and to be honest, we played in 4.5 hours.

Got the cart yeaterday, really nice. It was hard to tell the size from the picture on Rockbottomsgolf.com, it is bigger than I thought it would be. But it looks good with my bag of clubs on it. Using it tomorrow (Saturday), everything looks and feels OK.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
