I take it, it is not unlike walking the NAMM Show for 4 days straight?

I did it once, in 2010. That wasn't easy. Not to mention the horrendously loud environment to go with that.

For sure if you're injured or disabled, but if that's a test of stamina for a pro golfer, they're simply not in playing shape. It should be no test at all for a healthy professional.

You are right, but if you golf like me, (military golf, left-right-left-right) you end up walking an easy 7 miles carrying a 35 pound golf bag, it does take some stamina...especially on those hilly courses.

We call that "playing the whole course". That's how we hackers get our money's worth!

Very true! Love the guys that insist on playing from the tips even though they struggle to break 100!
