The PGA Merchandise Show features a section called Inventors’ Spotlight, where new ideas, good or bad, bizarre and interesting, are introduced. A product that seemed to be garnering more attention than others was the Golf Bike, a bicycle designed to carry clubs and be used as an alternative to walking the course or using a cart.
“We’re a bike company, but we also do golf swing aids and we’re also golfers,” Roger Hawkes of Higher Ground Bicycle Company, said. ” We combined what we do for a living in the cycling world along with our passion for golf.
“It’s low impact to the course. Obviously, it’s going to add fitness and speed of play. When we use it it’s about an hour for nine holes.”
