Sun Mountain Sports is preparing, for the first time, to introduce a combination golf bag and push cart and had it on display (shown above) at the recent PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
"It's been on the drawing board in some fashion or another for years," Steve Snyders, a public relations spokesman for Sun Mountain said. "But this is the first time we've done this. We put a lot of thought into these designs."
The cart/bag combination weighs 18 pounds. To put this into context, Sun Mountain's lightest cart weights 14 pounds and when combined with a six-pound bag weighs a combined two pounds more than the cart/bag combo. It also folds down into a space "not much bigger than our C130 [cart bag]," Snyders said.
The combo cart/bag will be available in July and will have a retail price of $399.
