Big Max, AJGA mark 50th cart ‘borrow’

PRESS RELEASE 22 September 2019


The American Junior Golf Association and Europe’s leading pushcart brand BIG MAX are celebrating the 50th “borrow” of a BIG MAX push cart at AJGA events this summer. The ‘Borrow’ program enables participants at AJGA events to borrow a BIG MAX push cart and enjoy the multiple benefits of pushing a BIG MAX cart in competition play.


Scott Geary, Director of Business Development: "The AJGA is very proud to partner with BIG MAX. This relationship gives us the opportunity to educate our members on the safety and benefits of push carts. We appreciate the support from BIG MAX to help enhance the player experience by providing push carts for our members to borrow at all events."

Rick Oldach, CEO of BIG MAX USA is delighted that BIG MAX is providing the benefits of using a high quality push cart to so many young golfers. He said, “There are various benefits that America’s young golfers are getting from using a high-quality pushcart. Push carts are seen more and more on the college circuit as they reduce strain on the body and reduce fatigue at the end of the round. It’s very satisfying to help the AJGA’s young golfers experience these benefits, and to see them enjoy the practical innovations that are synonymous with BIG MAX.”


The BIG MAX ‘Borrow Program’ will continue to see BIG MAX carts available to pre-book, at no cost, for participants to use at all AJGA events, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to enabling more junior golfers to experience the benefit of using one of its premium push carts.
