Over the years, it has come to our attention that some owners of our golf push carts make certain modifications to customize their carts to their specific needs.
One such ‘customizer’ is David Owen, a staff writer for The New Yorker, a contributing editor at Golf Digest and the owner of the blog “My Usual Game’. David recently posted a blog entitled “Pimp My Ride”. Here’s an excerpt:
Most of my modifications, though, have been improvements to the original design. For example, the Micro-Cart has a useful plastic-lidded waterproof storage compartment near the handle. However, the lid wouldn’t close over my Bushnell PinSeeker 1500 laser rangefinder, which is somewhat bulky. (The lid is angled, and the narrow end hit the fat bottom of the rangefinder.) My solution was to use some of my son’s old Lego bricks to create a shim, which lifts the rangefinder into the deeper part of the compartment. I also used Lego bricks (and epoxy glue) to create a rim at the edge of the smaller, upper compartment, where I like to keep pencils. The Lego rim keeps pencils from sneaking into the lower compartment and hiding behind my rangefinder.
So, what’s your story? How have you customized your cart to meet your needs? How have you ‘rigged’ your cart to fix a mishap with a no-hands run down a hill and into a tree?……
