Although it's been around for awhile, but maybe because spring is around the corner, there is a renewed marketing push for the golf cart version of the Segway human transporter.
But it strikes me that perhaps while cool to have, if you like tooling the links along side the friends in your foursome in a cart, or hanging back with those walking the course, this may rank just above the "who cares" solar-powered golf bag.
Now the Segway hasn't become the catalyst for change in urban living that it was touted to be before it was unveiledalthough it is cool to ride one and think about all the microelectronics and MEMs controlling it. But I don't believe it is going to be a revolution in golf eithercan you imagine a "fearsome" foursome riding these things around the course?
And I would be slow to accept some of the advantages claimed for the golfing Segway, such as a better view of the course from its platform height of eight inches above the ground or, as one reviewer surmised, burning more calories by standing on it rather than sitting in a cart. Hey, give me a breakif you want exercise, get off and walk!
