BIK­ING MAD!

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE - DEN­NIS HUMPHRIES

De­spite hav­ing played golf for nearly 50 years, I saw some­thing last month which I have never seen be­fore. I was just about to tee off when my at­ten­tion was drawn to a fel­low golfer on the ad­ja­cent fair­way. I could only see the top half of this chap due

to the un­du­la­tions, but he seemed to be float­ing down the fair­way! My cu­rios­ity got the bet­ter of me and as I walked over to see what was hap­pen­ing, there he was ped­dling up and down the fair­way on a bike with his golf clubs on his back. I chal­lenged his be­hav­iour and was told that it was, in fact, a fold­able “golf cy­cle”. The guy was adamant it had been proven that bikes cause less dam­age to a course than bug­gies.
