  1. I discovered that carrying a bag is a big disadvantage, when I was much younger the fatigue factor is huge later in rounds. Leads to bad form and off-line shots. As a sixty-three year old with a hip replacement, walking the course(s) is required exercise. Any powered cart would gain my favor, (possible bias warning) I am accustomed to experimentation. Used to do club repair as work. I foresee the biggest differences to be on hilly courses and planning your approaches to any side-hill lies to be more tricky. Do the motors have enough power, do the braking methods hold - without dumping your bag. If I could afford, and justify the costs, I would buy one today. Which brand and model are the best value? I look forward to knowing to answer. If I am part of the testing, of not.
  2. Mark/ Minneapolis (suburb), MN/U.S.A. Current Putter: Bettinardi Baby Ben (center- shafted) My interest is mostly in the Piper C, (I have always preferred center- shaft putters, but would willingly try any more face-balanced model). I did club-making and repair work, whole working for Golfsmith. Starting when the Paul family owned the company.
  3. Mark/ Hopkins, MN Combination of cheap rangefinder (aim the pin on graph lines), tee boxes, sprinkler heads, sight-line, and experience. As a sixty year old guy, with more time than money, knowing where and how far to hit a ball is the difference between enjoying the game and blind effort, hope, and frustration. I use a 10.5 degree driver (used on open tee shots only), a 13.5 degree 3 wood (more accurate tee balls), 16.5 degree 4 wood (maybe my favorite club ( hit it further than 15/3 wood, lines-up clean, unlike any 5 wood), and 19 degree hybrid. Where the ball lands using these clubs determine if and how I find greens. I can chip an and putt well enough to score when I am able to choose my lay-up and approach game, with more information and care. I am will to do the testing, it could only help me and middling hacker's game. I need the challenge to get better. Thanks, for your consideration.
