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

Where I come from we call that giggin'. All you need is a good flashlight and a pitchfork, we just ate the legs, but that's all they were good for. I'd eat them over catfish or gar anyday of the week.

Golf is definitely a sport. It's one of the hardest games to play at a professional level

No running? You haven't played with me then...I hook shots all over the course and send people running. Takes skill to be as bad as I am at golf. lol

As a sport, not football or basketball, but it requires strength, precision, and focus.

There is some language that SDC finds offensive in the Happy Gilmore clip so I took it down, but I think it would make golf more exciting.

Golf is a hard sport. I play and I will say that it requires more skill and focus than most sports. 1/8" to the right or left on the club head to the ball and you are digging in the woods for that white dimpled ball. But where I find it hard to justify as a physically demanding sport is that the most energy exerted is on average about 70-80 swings a day and the torque in your hips. I was bored at work and did 5 sets of 15 "wood chops" with 10 lb resistance. It took me 20 minutes at the most... So besides the walk, on "game day" these guys do about 20 minutes of "mildly" demanding physical activity.

Golf is a sport. It is very demanding and you have to play it a lot to play at a high level. It is more difficult to play than most other sports. If you think it is not difficult because pros walk or because you ride a cart when you play, then next time you go out put your bag on your shoulder and walk 18 and see how you feel afterwards. Golf is a sport and it is a great game.

Naw the pros use the caddie to carry them klubs. I thinkn thay should make them play them water traps and leeve the gaters in them , may bee put raw pork in thayre pakits. Thatd bee a sport. Tru story.

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.
