Segway vs. the golf carts

New edition cuts time off the usual 18 holes

Thanks to a new line of Segways, you can look like a dork on the links. We got used to seeing the original, but when you add a golf bag, scorecard holder and other duffer essentials, it just looks wrong.

But like its predecessor, the Segway x2 Golf apparently is efficient despite its asthetic shortcomings. The new model, which Gizmag says will debut at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida, cut at least an hour off the usual round of 18 holes in early trials. That leaves more time for apres-fairway cocktails, which we always endorse.
