Try playing 36 holes (two rounds) in one day walking and carrying your clubs in 90+ degrees and breaking 80 both times. Pretty demanding physically.


Yu no thay got golfin cadies an the girlzs do the golfin to. Come on man golfin aint lyke the ironman or cage restlin! Not a sport no way. Tru story. None of us own my job does golfin cause we workers. So i no that Haysead rides a golfn cart at his plant wear he works. I ask him about golfn but he says that he works a job two but dont golf. But Haysead has a boy at the plant wear he wurks that dont have no bodie hare and wears pink and peach clothes that golfs and keepz thay computers own line. He is only one person out of 46 workers we servayed that says golf-iz-a -sport.

I put Golf in the third tier of sports right next to Nascar and bowling.


Other than the pitcher and catcher, you can throw baseball in this category as well. Not much exercise going on in baseball. I would bet a golfer playing 18 holes would burn more calories than most of the players on a baseball team.

I'll admit that I've only played 3 rounds of golf in my lifetime. Baseball although it does have it's down time burns more calories depending on the position that you play. I've said this before, in the words of Mark Twain "Golf is a good walk spoiled".

If you're one of the few who believe golf is not a sport, I suggest you go to the Ryder Cup Matches. It might change your mind.

I went an i seen alot of rich folks in Mercedes and Roll's and they was wearin rolex's and they drank brandie n scotch at the club. They wore them pink n peach coloerd shirts an pants. Still cant picture any of em posting up in front of Lebron James or blitzing thru the A-gap against the Atlanta Falcans Offese-line. I say send them out on that Alaska dog-sled race and see if one lives, if they do then: Golfs a sport. Tru storie.

Golf is an activity... much like Darts. It's posted in the Sports pages of the newspapers just because they do not have an Activity Page.

There are arguements both for and again'st but I submit that a sport requires aerobic activity of some such.

My 275 lb Grandfather and his like physical condition friends played every three days or so and in now way shape or form were they athletes!

I don't know if you call golf a sport, but the professionals are becoming more and more athletes in today's game. Used to be the pros would finish their round and then head to the clubhouse for a round of drinks. A lot of beer guts and out of shape guys playing (John Daly).
When Tiger came onto the scene, he showed that golfers can be fine tuned athletes. Now we are seeing more golfers like Rory McIlroy and some of the other young guys more in shape and much more athletic.

I realize that Tiger and Rory walk the course instead of driving like 99% of golf "athletes", but let me ask you this topher805... Is Fishing a sport? It is also posted in the Sports Page of the newspaper.

I submit that when I tightline off of my dock for catfish that is not a sport, yet when a fellow fights a Blue Fin Tuna for 2.5 hours that requires aerobic stamina unlike either Mr. Woods or Mr. McIlroy exert all year in golf tourneys.

Your Thoughts?

I personally think of it more of an outdoor activity, but when you put it like that, I guess it all depends on the level in which you are competing. I can sit on a pier all day with a folding chair and a cooler full of drinks,and obviously that isn't very sporting. On the other hand, some of these trophy fishermen stay pretty fit and healthy to reel in some of these monster fish that take 2.5 hours to bring in.
As for golfers like Tiger and Rory, they have strict workout routines that help them get the most out of their swings. I think they said during his hey-day Tiger was benching over 300 pounds. Now me, the closest I'm coming to benching 300 pounds, is standing up after sitting on a bench...
