Many things in our life are tiresome ,but often solutions are both simple and close to hand.
One example would be the activity of lugging a heavy bag full of clubs around the course ,complete with waterproofs,drinks,food and a supply of balls. A full bag weighs around 20 kilogrammes , putting a strain on your back, shoulders, arms and neck. So stop carrying that heavy load and let an electric trolley do the work for you. Using one of these carts is about improving your game by literally taking the weight of your shoulders and allowing you to concentrate on your swing.
Those that have bought an electric trolley are finding it is the perfect playing partner and more and more players are realising just how important it is to their game. There was a time when using a Protrolley was a luxury , but not anymore. Usage is now commonplace and you rarely see a group without at least one user.
An electric golf trolley, as the name suggests, is a battery operated automatic cart that could be either manual or remote control. It provides easy transportation of clubs from tee to green and allows a normal upright posture while walking. This reduces the risk of strains and injuries. This also provides added comfort and helps the golfer to concentrate on his swing.
There are many benefits of using a powered caddy over a traditional pull or push trolley. With the manual option, you are required to walk around in a bent forward and twisted position. Which after a while can in my experience cause back and shoulder pain, thus negating the benefit of a trolley? The best option is a powered caddy; an electric trolley will transport your clubs from tee to green with ease, whilst allowing you to walk behind the cart in a normal upright position, gently guiding the trolley at you own pace.
The most common of these injuries is the lower-back or spinal injury, closely followed by the left wrist and shoulder. At least three out of every five golfers experience back injuries at some point of time or another. The primary causes of such injuries are due to poor swing mechanics, poor physical fitness and sporadic play.
Owning an electric cart doesn’t have to cost the earth, they are compact, come complete with a range of accessories and cost little more than a quality traditional trolley.
Why ? Well everybody in sport knows that fitness is important , and just because golf is considered a sedentary game , it does not mean that fitness does not count. The fresher you are at the end of the round , the more likely you are to finish off that good round with a strong finish rather than wondering why it was another one that “got away”.
Fully laden a carry bag can weigh-in anywhere between 20-30lbs; an enormous contributor to the build up of fatigue. Think of carrying this weight over 4 hours and 5 miles and you can begin to appreciate the exceptional stamina and concentration levels required if you’re to give your best performance from the first tee through to the 18th green.
Many golfers fail to appreciate just how much time their golf clubs spend , NOT in their hands, but in their golf bag, slung across the shoulders, while they are walking between shots , and therefore sapping their strength. With a Protrolley electric trolley you can just walk along , saving that energy , just as the pro’s do with their caddies. The caddies also get the yardages for their players , but we can cover that with one of our range of GPS devices , which tell you at a glance how far you have to go and what hazards lie ahead.
You will still get the exercise of walking the course , but its much more fun finishing fresh and shooting lower scores. We also sell a wide range of push trolleys which are proven to be better for your body than carrying a bag.
Get one today , or at least have a trial. I think you will be amazed at the difference !
If you want to save your back, an electric golf trolley is well worth investing in – using one instead of carrying your bag can improve your health and your game.
Invest in an electric trolley or a push trolley – not one of the pull variety.
Golf may seem like a gentle sport, but lugging a great big bag stuffed with clubs over one shoulder, then walking 18-holes with this dead weight, can in fact be brutal. If you don’t invest in a good quality electric golf trolley or push trolley, carrying your golf bag can cause terrible back pain and strain, which will affect the technique of your swing and could leave you vulnerable to injury. The most common injury in the male professional golfer is in the back, and four out of five golfers, at whatever level, will suffer low-back pain at some point in their lives.
Electric and push trolleys, save your back
All golfers are aware of the problems of back pain and how it can affect their game. Carrying your own bag instead of utilizing a specifically designed golf trolley can lead to unnecessary strain on your back. Employing an electricor push trolley could in fact improve your game – carrying your bag not only affects your back but can be exhausting. Using a golf trolley means you can save all your physical energy for your golf swing.
A pull trolley can cause you to twist your back without realising it, even causing long term problems . Whereas a push trolley means you can maintain good posture. The addition of a front wheel to most makes, means they are much easier to use. Some roll so freely they have to have a brake fitted !!
Improved athleticism will help protect you from damaging your back while strengthening your muscles for the game. Although you might think carrying a golf bag will make you fitter than wheeling one on a golf trolley , you’d be mistaken – the best place to get fit is in the gym using correct equipment under expert supervision. Slinging a bag over your shoulder and suffering around the course will only cause injury and take away the pleasure of the game.
Strength, flexibility and endurance all play a part with effective warm-ups, stretching and core-strengthening work essential.
