Does anyone walk anymore?

You can't peacock down the fairway after striping one or sticking one close when you have to get into a cart right away.   

Hilarious!!!! That commercial is still my favorite "are you peacocking me right now?"

I always walk... before this year, I walked and carried... Now I almost feel like a cheat as I have purchased a push cart having some scoliosis problems. But riding? That'd really feel like golf is no longer a sport.

carried my bag until 40 lower lumbar was talking to me bought push cart best $200 bucks I ever spent

I have walked for the 11 years I've been retired. Use power walk behind carts. Just picked up a slightly used Kangaroo w/remote control. Makes the hills and soft turf days so much easier. Plus being able to swing both arms makes walking even easier.

My plan was to retire and get a remote electric cart so I could walk a couple times a week. However, the ligaments on my left ankle said no. I can walk if it's flat or uphill, but the downhill slants cause pain and my ankle gives out.

I've got to look into one of those remote power carts... seems like the best of both worlds

Have you guys seen thd robo Caddie or something like that. I'm on mobile and can't search easily to find a link. It's like your remote carts without a remote.

 

You just attach a small sensor on the back of your belt and it follows a few yards behind you ans when you stop moving it stops.

 

I'm pretty sure it will be at the PGA Show. I'll check into it and see if I can get some video.

Here's the link for it.    Also I should mention, if you can't tell by the size of these, they are meant for Golf Courses to have to rent out to players.  Not individuals buying them and lugging them around in your trunk..LOL

I only walk and carry my bag even if a cart is included in the green fees.  I won't play courses that do not allow walkers.

owwwwwch! and dammmmm!

 

Have you tried support braces or even an air ("soft") cast .. ie. that allow the ankle to flex forward while stabilizing it laterally?

I do enjoy walking, but I can only get comfortably around the flat courses or courses with minimal elevation changes when I'm using a push cart. I walked a hilly course (Poppy Hills for those of you who know it) the other week and started to lose my legs around hole 13. This caused me to start spraying my shots and I double bogeyed my way in to the clubhouse... I'm going to make an effort to get out and walk more courses this year, and maybe, after some "training", I'll give the legs another shot at Poppy Hills later in the year.

Big fan of walking. I get way more Satisfaction out of a round walking vs riding. Plus the wife gives me dirty looks when I don't walk. Like I'm a lazy pos

Big fan of walking- and almost always do.  My home course is great (no great distances between greens to next tee, as some newer and resort courses have), and while there are some significant hills and valleys, they are gradual enough so it is not a mountain goat course!  Getting ready for a week golf trip where carts are mandatory- and that is ok, as we will be playing 36 a day, but I still walk quite a bit- it allows me to slow down and maintain a tempo- vice jumping out of the cart, flailing at the ball and jumping back in and chasing the ball to the next spot... I need to keep a good tempo and stay in the moment-as it were- to successfully strike the ball and get it somewhere near my aiming point.

Totally agree I maintain a much better tempo when walking I don't feel rushed or hurried at all. I usually like to walk to the green after my second shot when I take a cart.

I will make it a to do list this year.  I walk so much for work that I really like riding on the course, and it makes it easier to go from side to side:>)

Walk and carry only. Only time I take a cart is in a tournament.

Usually walk. Cart only when pressed for time aka chasing daylight or slight drizzle. Also walking for slightly breezy day.
