Golf spectators aren’t limited to a seat, as with many other sports, and are instead free to walk around the courses.

On average, Paul Lawrie Matchplay spectators walked an average of more than 11,589 steps, with more than 82% meeting daily physical activity recommendations and more than 60% expressing an interest in becoming more physically active after watching golf.

Golf spectators at the 2014 Ryder Cup collectively walked four times around the world.
