Emergency rooms across the country in 2015 treated approximately 7,000 children for golf cart-related injuries, primarily of the fracture and head trauma variety. Considering that carts were originally designed to carry aging and infirm duffers from one hole to the next, that four-figure tally raises a question: What were all those kids doing in golf carts?

While official statistics are silent on that front, many of the wounded children could have been on their way to lunch.
