Golf is the Answer to Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

If consistently popular New Year’s Resolutions include losing weight and exercising more. And, if key to keeping a resolution is enjoying it and not viewing it as work. Then we’ve got the answer. Golf!

A study found that walking a round of golf offers the same benefits as a step-aerobics class. Another study documents that walking two rounds of golf per week burns over 2,500 calories.

Sun Mountain makes it easier than ever to enjoy the walk with three-wheeled Speed Cart® and four-wheeled Micro-Cart® golf push carts and numerous choices of lightweight golf bags.

The new for 2012 Sync golf bag is even made specifically for use on our push carts and offers a 14-way divided top to help with that other resolution — to get more organized.

1000 Rounds of Golf in 366 Days

Sun Mountain Provides Golf Push Cart for World Record Attempt

Sun Mountain is proud to have provided a Speed Cart golf push cart for music industry veteran Jimmy Daniel who is currently embarking on an ambitious journey to break the Guinness World Record for “Most Rounds Of Golf In One Year.” This is a spirited challenge to play and walk most of the 1,000 rounds in 366 straight days (with leap year), but the mission of breaking the world record is secondary to what he is hopeful to accomplish.

Daniel is using this courageous challenge to launch Heart of the Green, a unique, grassroots organization using the game of golf as a platform to raise awareness to reduce deaths from cardiac arrest and heart attacks.

It is the goal of Heart of the Green to take their campaign to 10,000 golf communities, courses and clubs where millions of men and women of all ages, all nationalities, in every demographic, visit every day of the year.

Visit www.heartofthegreen.org for more information and updates throughout the campaign.
