“I love bags. Anything that contains the thing that you love is great,” said Hardy to lead the interview.
You’ve heard of pull carts, but push carts seem to be “in” right now in the golfing world and are much more user friendly.
Both push and pull carts get a bad rap and have this reputation of being for the elderly only. But that’s not the case. In fact, Hardy bought one last year. Even though his friends poke fun at him for it, he thinks they’re just fantastic.
“I don’t use it every time I play when I carry my clubs. If I’m walking nine holes I’ll still just carry my clubs, but if I’m walking 18 holes yeah I want my push cart. There’s a lot of reasons to like these things,” said Hardy.
Green pointed out the added stress of carrying a heavy bag on your shoulders and how it can ruin your round.
