Connecting rods, as the name implies, connect the crankshaft to the piston. There is a hole on each end of the connecting rod. The end with the large hole, goes around the crankshaft journal, while the end with the smaller hole connects to the piston via a wrist pin.
If your golf cart breaks a connecting rod, it is generally very bad news. Depending on how quickly the engine is turned off will determine the extent of the damage, but overall it is generally not good.
