Just wondering who plays golf, and if so what you shoot....
Or maybe you think golf sucks....

I shot a 94 yesterday which was my best score for the year. I used to play when I was a teenager, and just started getting into it again this year. Im officially addicted.

Definitions of sport on the Web:

* an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition
* the occupation of athletes who compete for pay

Guess Golf has none of these attributes :rolleyes:

Exactly. Golf requires minimal physical exertion and since the folks who play golf are not athletes the second part does not include golf either.

You even play 18 holes in 4 days with no golf cart??? And there is no competition in golf???

No competition for pay? Tiger Woods plays for free???

When I was in high school, I did an article for the school paper on whether or not cheerleading was a sport. I don't remember whether I came down on the "yes" side or whether I left it up for the reader to decide.

Carry on. :mellow:

There was no level of exertion stated in the defenition. Minimal exertion is still exertion.

No competition for pay? Tiger Woods plays for free???


He said they weren't athletes, not that they didn't get compensated. Wouldn't you have to meet both criteria of the defenition?

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

No thread is safe.

Of course the fact it is TD's thread probably stoked the flames.

I'm a fanatical golfer, but I suck. The lowest I've ever shot is a 102. Nonetheless, my favorite thing in the world to do is play golf. I just wish I had more time to practice- because if I did, I'd probably be pretty good. My last time out I shot a 104.

Play and get back to me. It's the hardest sport to master on the planet. You have no idea how hard or challenging golf is until you play it. I played hockey for 10 years and I can tell you- it was much easier to learn hockey and get good at it then it ever was for me to learn how to play golf. I was a good hockey player. To this day, I suck at golf.

How difficult something is has no bearing on whether or not it is a sport. Brain surgery, very complicated and difficult to master. Also, not a sport.

Golf is a hobby like gardening, knitting or basket weaving.

We'll agree to disagree. I'll just assume you've never played golf.

Are there gardening tournaments, The US Basket Weaving Open, where you play outside in let's say, 100 degree heat, for 4 days and compete against others for a championship and use your arms, back, legs, etc to walk and hit a golf ball??

I better look for the World Series of Knitting then...what a revelation!!

So just my merely USING my brain...ZERO physical skill at all, I can be a great golfer???

Golf is very difficult. It might not be as physical as other sports, but to say it's not a sport is unfair.

Being able to master those shots takes a lot of practice. It kind of makes me think of auto racing. Is that not a sport too cause they drive in circles?

I think you have to be in pretty good shape to do that and be a damn good driver. Especially at those speeds.

Auto racing is not a sport either. All activities are not sports. There are competitive knitting and gardening events. Doesn't make them sports. Golf is a hobby. I have played golf many times (both miniature and full size version). Is it difficult? Sure. Is it a sport? No way.

I don't agree because you don't see anyone just winning at these sports. Which means you have to be in pretty good shape to be good. I remember going to driving ranges in CT and I never really improved. I don't know how they're able to hit that ball with such accuracy.
