Walking and cardiovascular exercise is something I take very seriously, so when the Hospital for Special Surgery informed me of their newest campaign aligned with the Ryder Cup, I had to write a quick post.

As the official hospital of The PGA of America, HSS is encouraging spectators to get moving by giving away pedometers as part of the “Let’s Move on Course!” initiative starting next week. A total of 25,000 pedometers will be given away with a limited supply distributed each day at Medinah Country Club on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, fans that scan their ticket at the “Let’s Move on Course!” booth or create a “walking” account and track their steps at can enter to win an autographed pin flag by Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III.
