My friend has a Yamaha G14 gas golf cart standard. It struggles to go forward but in reverse it goes as it should . Would anyone have an idea what problems it could have to cause this.

I would start with determining engine condition, compression being the first. i am not a yamaha guy but i'm pretty sure there geared to 1/2 speed in reverse, if so a weak engine would pull better with a lower gear ratio.
