The first shot was good (292 yard drive), but the second shot was a touchy feely wedge from 104 yards off a steep sidehill/downhill lie. Hit it to three feet.

18th hole, which let me check off the whole back nine in the birdie challenge.
I would think if you did it more often your legs would strengthen and this wouldn’t be a problem.
Our legs are built to take on heavy loads like that. Our backs not so much.
I load most of my stuff in the car the night before a round. The only things I’m bringing out in the morning are my golf bag and my water bottle.
Main reason is that the course where I play most of my golf is excessively hilly, and I am noticeably less fatigued carrying compared to walking. It's a specific fatigue/soreness in both my achilles/lower calves and glutes that only occurs when using the pushcart on this particulary hilly course. When I play a flat/flatter course, I take the pushcart.
Secondarily, I commute to/from work daily by bike, so my wife is basically the sole proprietor of our car, except on the weekends when I golf, and the rear storage compartment of our Subaru Outback (which isn't tiny) is always filled with kids crap, like bikes, scooters, etc., and I'm often too lazy to unload the car at 6am to fit my pushcart in the car, but my clubs fit nicely in the back seat.
