I've gone to a cart bag and my current pull cart's straps are incredibly short. Anyone encountered this problem before? Did you just jimmy it up with bungee cords or replace the straps? They're Velcro so I'm looking to see where I can get new longer straps.

Mine are OK, but I use a bungee anyway to keep the bag from rotating.  What cart did you get?

The straps on my cart are bungee (which is awesome). You could probably jury rig some sort of extension if you don't want to or can't replace the straps.

When I walk at my home course, I typically rent a pull cart.  They all have to short of straps, and my bag is not overly big.  I typically can get them to velcro shut, but just barely.

Thanks for the feedback! I have a bagboy from about 6 or 7 years ago, two wheeler.

Sounds like an excuse to get a new cart. ;-)

Ace hardware has nylon strapping material, velcro, and buckles to custom make your own straps if that interests you.

What interests me is getting something like velcro onto my cart for when I walk. In any given round, I have to figure out where to put my glove when I'm not using it (or them, as I usually alternate among two) to allow it to air out -- otherwise I'll usually sweat through a glove. How tough would it be to get velcro pieces onto my (push) cart?

Any Walgreens or office store should have sticky back velcro in the stationary department. Peel and stick whichever side you need- hooks or loops. Or, you can just do what I do and use the straps on the bag to put the gloves on. they should wrap around the strap, close the velcro and it's done.

I'll try the office supply route. The straps on my bag don't have any velcro on them, sadly, and they're somewhat hidden by how the bag sits on my push cart. Either way, this should be much better than the other approaches I've been trying. Thanks!

You don't need velcro ON the straps, the strap is like your arm, just close the glove around the strap. the flap should close with the strap passing thru the upper part of the opening.

    • It's one of those rules that doesn't affect the number of strokes I took, like the signing an incorrect scorecard rule. Keeping a handicap would only be for my information since I don't play in competition.

    • Day 447: Forgot to post yesterday, but did COVID-19 day-3, -4, -5 drills, and superspeed workout. Played 18 today. Short game was really good, with 8 up/downs. Was overdoing palmar flexion early, but settled into a happy middle ground after a few holes. Had a swing thought for backswing, touch lead shoulder to chin, to make myself do a full turn. Best ballstriking round in awhile, and broke 80. Today’s strokes gained vs. tour player:
    • LOL!  You are obviously a funny and classy woman.  I would have preferred that you quoted the entire sentence in your feeble insult, as it referenced my 20+ year career in the US Marine Corps.  FYI, the games we associated with having "Balls" included: pugil sticks, martial arts (MMA, boxing & wrestling), full-contact sports, endurance events, etc.; definitely not recreational games that children play. As a 60+ year old who *LOVES* playing golf with my son regardless of how well either one of us is playing (and could not relate to your earlier Topic regarding soliciting help for your dad), I am starting to gain an appreciation for how a 60+ year old dad who can still play to a 5 handicap would be "grumpy" having to play golf with his child...
    • And more curious is how the foreign players on the Tour, whose first language is not English, always use English when they talk to the ball.
