Geoff Ogilvy likes to say that tournament golf pays for the golf he really loves, played on natural, classic courses that are often much shorter than the PGA Tour's 7,500-yard monsters. It lets Ogilvy play by feel rather than by mechanics on the ground, not just in the air, and without a stroke-score obsession – sometimes without even a full complement of clubs.
Ditch the cart.
"Walking is better for you, and you'll play better, too. You feel the land's little ups and downs. 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' describes how riding in a car is like watching a scene on TV, while on a motorcycle you're in the scene. Walking is golf's motorcycle."
