(RELEASE) — With the turn of the New Year, Bag Boy is highlighting how making the small change to walk the course can have a significant impact on your overall health.
As opposed to riding, walking the course presents several health benefits that help to improve circulation, strengthen bones and muscles and prevent age-related memory decline. Making the simple switch to walking is an easy way for golfers to add extra exercise into their weekly routine.
In addition to the health benefits, walking the course can help to improve your golf game. Walking prevents muscle stiffness and allows golfers to keep their bodies moving on the trek from hole to hole. This leads to walking golfers—especially those who use push carts—shooting better scores on average than riding golfers.
Bag Boy offers a wide selection of products to help interested golfers start walking the course with ease. These products include a variety of push carts and the Tracker—a Bluetooth tracking device that attaches to any push cart and records time, distance and calories burned.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in the number of walking golfers throughout the past year,” said Craig Ramsbottom, President of Bag Boy. “We’re hoping that the turn of the New Year helps us to introduce more golfers to the joys and health benefits of walking.”
