Golf is a an athletic sport plain and simple. If you think golf is easy because when you were younger you could chop the ball around the course for 30 over you are retarded.
Professional golfers are unbelievably good at what they do and you should give them the respect they deserve.
Naturally, this list is favours sports that rely heavily on skill and technique. There is no chance that a 40 year old could compete athletically with a 20 year old.
You think it is athletic actually...is John Daly an athlete? How about Craig Stadler? Davis Love III? How about Phil Mickelson and his bitch tits? Maybe Bob from Fight club should give it a shot!! Arnold Palmer? You are trying to convince yourself that is athletic..is it physical? yeah, but that doesn't make it an athletic contest. A 40 yr old would, in many cases, be able to physically dominate a 20 yr old. At 20 most of your athletic ability hasn't even peaked. If you meant 20 something, then I agree in most cases but not with the specific age of 20.
And to counter your silly part of your post trying to take jabs at my golf game. I played 6-7 days a week usually by myself when it wasn't a scheduled practice. I was the #1 player on my golf team and considered a scratch golfer though I usually shot under par unless they specially designed the courses for the competition. Only because I knew every course back and forwards. I got admitted into the PGM school at Miss State (needed a 5 handicap to be considered). I actually smoked weed when I played it with my friends to give them a chance at winning some holes, but ended up focusing way better. But thanks for your completely ignorant comment on my golf game...now I am a 30 handicap probably but I never play so I wouldn't know.
You think golf is not a sport and I countered with a link arguing that Vijay Singh should be near the top of that list. I'd say that's related to the topic.
I play golf so to hear people express extreme naivety with regard to the sport I feel compelled to correct them.
I don't dislike you but we definitely have differing views on most issues.
In case you are as sensitive as ZZtigerZZ81,
Sorry for quoting you Swpthleg, Kisses darling... XXXX
What was it the third sentence where is said "with woods out Vijay is blah blah blah". Key words with woods out. You must have overlooked those.
I played golf too...and it wasn't athletic...never did I get home from 8 hours of school and 6 more of golf and say.."whew, I am done"...I broke a sweat but only because it was generally f*cking hot.
Is it challenging? Yeah, but you fail to realize the difference between athletically challenging and challenging.
I was the third person to mention how unphysically demanding golf was and how unathletic it is...but you didn't quote the others...guess you subconsciously do have something against me...or you want to bone me and you are still in that grammar school flirting mode.
This isn't an argument about whether or not your game is a sport or not...it clearly is, but it just isn't physically demanding and if you thinkit is you might need to get a physical because you are out of shape.
