Players in the PGA tour cannot ride in a cart. They must walk the complete 72 holes in a tournament. The torque exerted on the body while swinging a golf club can cause joint and ligament damage (my elbows can tell you all about it). And I'm sure that you and all of the other gym rats on this board know that the function of most PEDs is to decrease recovery time. If you are dealing with an injury that effects your golf game that may prevent you from making the cut in a tournament that will win you up to a millie, you would think about taking PEDs to help.

The total caloric expenditure for an 18-hole round is approximately 2,000 calories for walking while carrying clubs and 1,300 calories when riding in a cart.
Since walking is biomechanically more efficient than running, playing an 18-hole round of golf walking is roughly equivalent to a 3.5 to 4-mile run.
When walking 18-holes of golf, blood glucose levels fall by up to 20% for the young, 10% for the middle-aged, and 30% for the elderly players, and body weight is slightly reduced for all groups.
Repeated golf practice enhances balance control and confidence among all age ranges.
Older golfers tend to have better static and dynamic balance control and confidence than non-golfing older, healthy adults.
Regardless of handicap, sex, or course played, golfers exceed 10,000 steps during a typical round of golf – which meets the guideline for exercise recommended by most medical and clinical physicians.
Other ways to burn 1,300 calories:
Strength Training for 2 hours and 45 minutes
Aerobic Activity for 2 hours and 10 minutes
Jogging on a Treadmill for 2 hours and 10 minutes.
Functional programming combines the flexibility and power of abstract mathematics with the intuitive clarity of abstract mathematics.
