GolferpalTAIPEI, Taiwan — In golf, push carts are primarily functional items with the primary purpose of taking the load off of golfers’ backs. And over the years, several companies have attempted to bring new innovations to the basic push cart by making it even more convenient and simple to use. Some push carts, for example, now feature expanded, smart storage options, newer accessories, or even smaller storage footprints. However, only one company—Worldpal, the maker of the Golferpal Push Cart—has been able to introduce a completely new innovation to the one part of the push cart that still requires physical effort (besides actually walking behind the cart): setting it up and taking it down. Now, with the touch of one button, the Golferpal Push Cart automatically folds and unfolds, making packing and unpacking a breeze.
