  1. 1. Do you always walk, get a cart, or both

    • I am a walker
      67
    • Give me a cart
      17
    • I enjoy both

Just curious what the norm is for everyone on whether you only walk/cart or both. I for one usually use a cart just because I am almost always with other people. Could you imagine how slow 4 people walking and each one playing their own ball would be? Though in the few instances when I play with myself I like to walk. Reason being that I like to take my time and my score definitely reflects it.

I always walk. If I play in a charity event, where carts are required, then I tell my partner that I prefer to walk, and let him or her drive the cart around. My preference for walking is based on these factors:

1. I love the exercise, and walking 18 holes on a hilly course, like my home course, is a decent workout. There are only 2 of us who are in good enough shape to walk the course.

2. It helps my rhythm. My full swing is based on good tempo and rhythm. Walking helps me to achieve that and keep it during the course of the round.

3. Focus---I do not have to talk to anyone, so I can stay focused on the "job at hand".

4. Observe nature---we have many foxes, deer, wild turkeys, blue herons, etc. around our area in Central New York. We are the "Foothills of the Adirondacks", and we grow up with wildlife and birds.

Generally, if I am playing for a score (vast majority of the time), I walk using my clicgear. If it is more of a social outing (charity scramble, etc.), I may ride a cart. I selected walk in the poll because I consider myself a "walker."

I prefer to walk but there are just some courses that I play that walking would be an issue. I enjoy going to Wichita and playing with my brother as the courses there are very walkable.

You can't beat walking in the cool autumn weather! I suppose some people have to ride because they can't walk 18 holes, and I feel for them, but there is nothing like walking with a beautiful scenery.

I must be the only one whose game suffers when I walk. I'm probably the most out of shape too.

I have horrible ankles from playing sports over the years and my right knee and foot is effed from a car accident I was in. When I get home from riding 18 I still have trouble walking without a limp.

I love to walk and honestly I'll walk to my ball if I feel up to it, but I doubt I'd last 18 w/o a cart.

If I wasn't so bad I would never use a cart. I enjoy the exercise and hate babysitting a cart. But with some of my errant shots it would take too long to make it through 18 if I only walked.

Hybrids - 4DX 15.5°, 20°
Irons/Wedges - CI-7 4-GW, SW | "Free" Warrior 60° LWPutter - TiffanyBalls - various

I prefer to walk b/c I study in between shots. I'll use a cart only when:

1) The course is packed b/c I don't want to hold up people behind me
2) When Phoenix gets 105+. That's just too hot for me.
Cheers!

I prefer to walk. Walking an 18 hole round of golf will burn approximately 900 to 1,200 calories, obviously more if you are a golfer that takes more swings and hit your ball from the rough on the right side of the fairway to the left side of the fairway. Walking 18 is a good alternative if you miss a day or two at the gym.

However, I would highly recommend a cart to those golfers that are just starting out or have a 15 handicap or higher just so that it does keep the pace of the game up. ROUNDS OVER 4.5 hours kill me!!

I prefer to ride. I'm young enough, and in pretty good shape, I just don't want to walk. I used to walk quite a bit to save money, but that isn't as big an issue for me now so I ride. Plus, the 2-3 courses I play aren't really set up for walking. There are a few spot on each course where it can be 75-100 yards from green to tee.

I will judge my rounds much more by the quality of my best shots than the acceptability of my worse ones.

    • The more I think about it - LIV isn't great, , but the PGA Tour seemingly wants all the power and that isn't great either. Golf is due for a major restructuring of power, the game doesn't just exist in America and it should be played equally on the highest level across the entire world. The only real problem I have with LIV is the dumb format. I would like to see half the season played regionally, USA, Europe, Asia, then the second half the year played globally with the top players from all of the regions, one tournament every other week similar to Formula 1. Every large region gets a single major event, and then The Masters b/c its special. LIV gets the middle eastern region .
    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.

    • Just a pack of lazy ex-competitors or non-winners who are taking the easy road of mediocre playing. A player can finish DFL in all 15 tournaments and gross over $1.8 mil. And that’s playing three round tournaments. LIV honestly thinks that’s a model for growing the game? Such a shame that Cam can be on possibly the height of his career and throw away that desire that got him on the PGA TOUR in the first place. It’s sports. Professional sports. We all understand someone’s wanting to make more money and do less. But when it come to professional sports, that’s seldom a winning model or a respected one.  Bottom line is it’s the fans that have made these players wealthy. Sports produce nothing for people but entertainment. If it weren’t for our love of these games, it would be a hobby alone. Essentially these ass clowns are defecting and turning their backs on what/ who  made them able to even pursue this semi-retired, exhibition money grab. I have no respect for them. Not that it matters at all apparently.
