For the second year in a row, Phat Golf took home Golf Digest's 2019 Editor's Choice Award for Alternative Transport from the recent PGA Merchandise Show. We are proud to earn this award and lead the single rider revolution on golf courses across the country while partnering with PGA professionals like Pat Perez, Ricky Barnes, Matt Kuchar, Charley Hoffman, Abraham Ancer, and Harold Varner III. Over the last year, we've improved our battery technology and increased the torque to make the Phat Golf scooter experience better than ever.

Here's an excerpt from Golf Digest's article about their top picks from the PGA show, featuring the Phat Golf scooter:
"When it comes to getting around the golf course, the choice used to be as simple as walk or ride. No longer. Now there are a variety of methods for transporting your clubs over 18 holes: electric or gas carts, carts with fancy exteriors that look more like a classic car you would see on the street, motorized bikes that get you to your ball quickly and easily, and even a motorized device that allows you to walk without having to carry your clubs or push a cart. The choice is yours.
Alternative Transport, Riding
...Joining the Finn Cycle in the alternative-riding category is the Phat Scooter, an Arizona-based startup that made our list last year. The Phatty HD and Sport HD can be equipped with a rack on the rear to hold your bag and can cruise at 13 miles per hour in golf mode—more than fast enough to tool around the course in less than four hours. The scooter has plenty of ground clearance and features front- and rear-wheel suspension for a smooth ride. The scooter also comes equipped with removable and rechargeable electric batteries that last approximately 36 holes."
