ARE GOLF CARTS BECOMING OBSOLETE?

 ARE GOLF CARTS BECOMING OBSOLETE?
 OAKLAND, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Golf carts may be on their


way out, if trends to limit carts to pathways or to ban them altogether continue at golf courses nationwide.
 Luckily, a new invention saves fairways and makes it easier for golfers to hold clubs upright on the course. A lightweight chrome- plated rod, called CaddyMaster, is gaining popularity quickly across the country.
 Fairways Preserved
 Golf course administrators like the product because it preserves fairways from wear and tear and it aerates the greens.
 "We prefer to limit the use of carts on our grounds," said John Bearden from Sequoia Country Club in Oakland. "CaddyMaster is a good compromise. It helps our members and saves our grass, too," he maintained.
 No More Lost Clubs
 Even using a motor cart, golfers are inconvenienced by having to carry selected clubs to their next shot and having to place them on the ground to take the shot. Moreover, they often leave clubs behind at holes they have finished.
 "I always lose my clubs," Jerry Dunn, a retired attorney from Oakland, lamented. "I'd be putting on the 18th, and I can't find my clubs anywhere! With CaddyMaster, I haven't lost a single club. I think it's great," he asserted.
 Protection, Convenience and Concentration
 Golfers like CaddyMaster because they can bring along only the clubs they want and because it prevents deterioration of their clubs. The product is placed into the ground. It hangs outside the golf bag and is used to hold the clubs upright and in plain view.
 Ken Egenes, a general contractor from Bardonia, N.Y., attributes better concentration on his game to the invention. "Now that I have CaddyMaster, I don't worry about my clubs getting wet or forgetting them on the ground, and I always have a towel nearby," he said.
 Robert Keng, a designer from Berkeley, Calif., uses CaddyMaster when he plays a short game after work. "When I play nine holes, I don't want to lug my entire bag around, so I choose a few clubs and take along CaddyMaster to hold them while I take my shot," he explained.
 Developed by Lou Barroero, an avid golfer, inventor and Oakland resident, CaddyMaster is $18.95 from TGL Enterprises, 8901 San Leandro St., Oakland, Calif. 94621-9945, 510-654-8760. Its patent is pending.
