Two stories about two vastly different topics landed in our inbox today.
On the one hand, we read about the longest golf cart in the history of golf carts — it measures 21 feet, 11 inches from tip to tip.
We’re guessing this thing is not electric. It looks more like a monster truck, especially with the tiny car underneath it. We have a feeling that the 90-degree rule won’t apply — it’s cart path only for this beast. And those paths better be wide.
The good thing is that when we slice our tee shot into the woods, the 49-inch tires on this gas-guzzling, off-road machine will save us from having to walk through the poison ivy to find our Titleist.
At the complete opposite end of the spectrum is this: National Walk the Course Day.
Sponsored by push cart manufacturer Bag Boy, all golfers are urged to walk their rounds on June 8. Participating courses will donate $1 to their local First Tee chapter for every golfer that opts to hoof it.
In a press release, the company outlined the benefits of walking instead of riding: 721 calories burned over 9 holes vs. 411, and 2.5 miles walked vs. about a half mile.
Plus, of course, there’s no cart fee.
Golfers who participate in Walk the Course Day will be entered in a drawing to win a TriSwivel push cart and accessory pack. The TriSwivel is Bag Boy’s newest high-tech push cart, which features a front wheel that rotates 360 degrees.
