While taking the cart on the course is a usual go-to for many golfers, there are many benefits of walking on the course. By walking, not only are you able to get more engaged in the game, but you can also get some great extra exercise in as well! Check out a few ways that walking the course can benefit your game (and your health!) overall:
- You’ll see all angles of the course. By walking the course, you are going to get a good grip on all the angles, which will ultimately help your game. By getting a feel for what the entire course looks like, you will be able to visualize exactly where the ball needs to be to get the shot.
- You can set your own pace. By walking, you can set your own pace during your game. You will not have to worry about feeling rushed or waiting for a partner you are golfing with who is in the cart. By setting your own pace, you can truly focus on the consistency of your game and not have to worry so much about timing.
- Speed of your play. Walking the course will immensely speed up your play. As you are walking toward your ball, you are headed toward the next hole, therefore, you will have a much faster game by staying on your feet. Plus, you’ll get some extra steps in!
