Howdy forum members… Sun Mountain has partnered with us here at TST to offer up a nice little giveaway. Unlike the other contests we've done where you're asked to make a prediction, this one is going to be a randomly drawn raffle, and you can enter in three ways, multiple times:

  1. Post here in this topic. Limit of one post of this type for the month of June.
  2. Post on Twitter, and then share (by embedding) the Tweet in a separate post here. Limit of one every three days.
  3. Post on the Facebook, and then share (by embedding) the post in a separate post here. Limit of one every three days.

Basically, when the contest ends, either myself or a Sun Mountain representative will randomly choose a number between 2 and the number of posts in the topic. If that post is a valid entry post from a user who has not invalidated his entries, that member will win! If the post is not an entry or is from an invalid user, they'll try another random number and repeat the process until a winning post (and member) is found.

Entries - whether made on Facebook, Twitter, or here at TST - must contain:

  • A link to this topic (https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/94053-win-a-new-cart-from-sun-mountain)
  • A link to the cart you'd like to win (choose either the Speed Cart GT or the Micro Cart GT from the push carts page here).
  • An image of the cart you'd like to win in the color you'd like to win.
  • An enthusiastic and/or promotional phrase like "I'm hoping to win a Lime Speed Cart GT from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap" or something like that. (For Facebook and Twitter, please mention or link to the appropriate user/page - the links are below). Be creative!
  • For your one non-Twitter/Facebook post here in this topic, write a short paragraph about what winning a cart would mean for your golf game and how you're looking forward to using it.

In other words…

  • Everyone gets one free entry here. Just follow the rules above, reply to this topic, and post.
  • You can post on Facebook and Twitter as much as you like, but you can only post a unique link here (so it embeds, which should be automatic) each once every three days (three days must elapse between entries). You have to post and embed the Tweet/post here for it to count.

So you can make a post here for the month. You can also post one tweet and one Facebook post today, three days from now, three days after that, etc. through the end of June.

Sun Mountain is on Twitter at @SunMountainGolf and on Facebook at SunMountainSports.

The Sand Trap is on Twitter at @the_sand_trap and on Facebook at TheSandTrapGolf.

This contest ends June 30th, 2017, at midnight mountain time (U.S.). Winner will be notified by a private message by July 7, 2017 and will have 24 hours to respond to the PM or we may select another prize winner. Violating any of the above rules invalidates all of your entries. Winner must live in the United States, or be able to ship the prize to the U.S. TST reserves the right to further clarify the rules in any subsequent posts, but really, we're trying to keep this pretty simple and straightforward. Use some common sense. If anything's unclear, ask me.

Choose from either the Speed Cart GT or the Micro Cart GT at https://shop.sunmountain.com/push-carts.html.

    I don't really do "enthusiastic"...but I love SunMountainSports gear and I join every TST contest, so I'm pumped to have a chance to win!!!

    I prefer to walk all of my rounds, but it's quite hilly where I live so most of the courses are only borderline walkable.  Using a cart is much more pleasant than lugging a bag up 100' inclines.  I actually use a ClicGear cart right now, and it's OK...but not very stable (I've spilled my bag a few different times on even moderate cross-slopes) and it doesn't fold nearly as compact as the Sun Mountain.  I also have a SunMountain cart bag, which I love, and they are specifically designed to fit the baseplate on SunMountain carts. 

    So, even though I have a cart now...  #upgrade:dance:

    I still enjoy walking when the course permits it and I don't mind carrying ... but I'm getting older and need to conserve my energy and my back.  I think a Sun Mountain push cart would help me immensely in that regard.  It would also possibly encourage me to start walking courses even when carts are included in the price!

     First, for your post in this topic, you don't have to include a link to this topic. That's just for Tweets and Facebook posts.

    And to be clear:

    • You can post once as a "free" entry here in this topic.
    • You can post twice every three days (including the first day) if you have a Twitter account and a Facebook account.

    Yeah, you'll want to come back after nine minutes, or until someone else posts in between so consecutive posts won't be merged.

    This Speedcart GT in Gunmetal-Red would look nice with my Seminole bag strapped into it!

    I've recently started walking after work once or twice a week and have really enjoyed it. I don't mind carrying and like the extra workout, but with the weather turning warm here, having a slick cart like this to do the heavy lifting would allow me to enjoy the golf more. It'd also speed me up quite a bit so I could play more holes before the sun goes down! :-D

    I have two Sun Mountain push carts, the Micro and The Reflex, which I reviewed for The Sand Trap.  Both are great carts. My wife uses the Reflex because she likes the looks better.  My friends liked the look and feel of the Micro and ended up getting one as well. So I really don't need a cart but wanted to put in a good word for this contest and encourage folks to enter.

    The Speed cart rolls better over rough terrain than the Micro.  But the Micro folds smaller and will fit better in your trunk if space is an issue. Keep this in mind when choosing.  And good luck!

    As my age continues to creep up, a nice push cart looks pretty inviting, I think my hunter green Sun Mountain bag will be stylin' when riding on this Navy/White/Red Sun Mountain Speed Cart GT   https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html  :

    If I were to win this sweet cart, I'd honestly gift it to my dad who needs to be walking his rounds, but doesn't as he doesn't want to carry his bag. This would give him the ability to walk without excuse! I appreciate Sun Mountain offering this opportunity to our community :dance:

    I'd love to win a Silver Speed Cart GT from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap!  I currently use the original Sun Mountain Speed Cart.  Winning a new cart would help my golf game from all the major improvements.  First, the solid tires would eliminate all the maintenance issues with my inflatable tires.  Second, the E-Z Latch System would speed up and improve the folding and unfolding process.  Third, the new brake system is a much better system to lock the wheels and doesn't require any maintenance.

    This doesn't count as an entry, but only because I'm supposed to be getting one of these beauties in for review any day now!

    Wow, what a great opportunity from TST and Sun Mountain, thanks guys!

    I would love to win a Sun Mountain Speed Cart GT in lime green!

    https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html

     

    As I get older, I find myself riding in a cart almost exclusively, even though I can sure use the added exercise that comes from walking.  A high quality cart like this beauty is just what I need to get me back on my feet out on the course!

      • I have a slit-sole SW from another model year. If by chance you do, I'm interested!
      • Hi folks, So I wanted to do something a little fun. I've been a golfer on and off now for the last seven years. Three years ago, I had my best season (I started off averaging about 120, and by the end of the season, managed to start breaking 100 on a regular basis). Last year, due to financial limitations, I only played four rounds. This year, I'm going to be out there at least once a week!  So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to keep this thread going, and after each round at a course, or practice at the range, give everyone who wants to read it, an update with some thoughts, or ramblings about golf in general. So let's get this thing started: DAY 1: It's been close to year since I've been out to the range or a course. The weather was a nice 42 F with little rain, but some winds. I called my favorite little executive course and found out they're opening on Monday should the weather be good enough. I NEED to see if I can even remember how to swing a club. I grab my 7 iron, 4 iron, and driver and hit up the Royal Oak Golf Center.  I get the balls, stretch, and give a few practice swings with my 7 iron. I'm playing the same irons I bought 3 years ago, when I decided I wanted to be a "serious" golfer (whatever that means!). They're these Wilson Reflex Irons Dicks Sporting Goods sold me for about $250. I almost bought a set of Strata's that year, but decided I liked the way the Wilson's looked, and I was vaguely aware of the history of Wilson Staff irons, so it felt like a cool thing to get. They have this mat black polish around the head, with red offsetting the black.  I take five balls and line up for the first swing. It feels really awkward. I'm looking around at all the other golfers who seem to have flawless swings, and I'm nervous because I just know this isn't going to go well. There's this woman three or four lanes away from me and she's obviously just taken up the game, because she keeps topping the shots. Her boyfriend is trying to help her out, but she's just doing her thing. I smile and feel a little better about myself.  I focus on the ball and take my first swing. I top it and it flies like 30 yards down in front of everyone else's lane. It's like that scene in Tin Cup when he's first arriving at the driving range for the US Open and he can't seem to get rid of the shanks. I shank three, maybe ten more.  I step away and look around. Nobody cares, and then I remember I'm all alone. It doesn't matter at all. I need to find my swing, because I really want to start playing again. I line up behind another ball, take a deep breath, and have my first really good swing of the club. I can feel when it's a good swing, because it feels natural, and the ball seems to float up in the air, before landing and taking a bounce. I hit a few more with mixed results. I switch to the 4 iron. The 4 iron I'm hitting really well; 165 yards! I'm not understanding what the difference between why my swing is working with a 4 iron, but is hit or miss with the 7 iron. I switch to the driver (an old Olimar Tri Metal from the 90s), start off with huge slices. Switch back to the 4 iron; no issue. I'm really starting to wonder what's going on. I slow things down, and then make a discovery: right before the club contacts the ball, I'm breaking eye contact with every shot that's not using the 4 iron. With the 4 iron, I'm concentrating so much that I'm allowing myself to access swing mechanics appropriately. I go back to the 7 iron, remember to keep good eye contact, and every single one of the next 15 balls I hit end up at 130 yards and right at the spot I'm aiming. I go to the driver, repeat the same process, and I'm mostly hitting straight and at about 220 yards (still a slice on a few shots here and there, but overall much more consistent and a better feeling).  The end of the practice session was good, but the struggle was real for a while. Finding the swing was really hard because of the lack of practice in the last year or so. I had to constantly remind myself that this is a simple game; it's a simple thing. I think we tend to overthink the game, and the swing, too much. It's also helpful, I think, to remember that at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter all that much, because we're out there to have fun and enjoy life. I went to a few stores afterwards and looked at some nice things (bought some Wilson Staff Duo balls for the season and am looking for a Sunday bag because I want to walk courses not ride) and I'm really looking forward to the season. That first round is going to be a nightmare, but I don't care. I probably won't even keep score!  So, here's the three main takeaways: 1. The swing should feel natural. If it doesn't feel natural, you're doing it wrong.  2. This is a really simple game and it's helpful to remind oneself of that simplicity; keeping calm and cool is better than getting frustrated and upset. I don't think I understood that when I first starting playing. This is meant to be fun, not frustrating.  3. Keep you eye on the ball at all times and do not anticipate the contact between the club and the ball, otherwise you will pull, slice, top, shank, etc. Eye contact will certainly almost always give you a good and consistent result if your swing feels natural. 
      • Trucker, you are good enough to use one. Every shot requires a goal, not that you attain perfection.  If the pin is 5 from the back and long is bad, then my club choice (depending on wind....) would be, if I pured that club, it would just reach the pin.  If you think you are not good enough, chances are high the right mental approach can move you index 5 or more quickly. 
      • The DG you show is a Stiff flex. I don’t think they even make the DG steel in a senior flex. I wouldn’t base it on how it ‘feels.’ Go hit it and get some numbers.
