Basically what the title says, my sister doesn't think it is and yet it's on the fox sports channel, as you can see i have a conundrum.

So what are your thoughts pit?

reasoning with a woman is a sport, as is golf
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

Definition of sport according to a housemate studying sports science:

Sport is an activity that is an organized, competitive and skillful physical activity requiring commitment and fair play.

So yes, Golf is a sport.

I guess it is a sport, since you have to swing a minimum of 70 times (for pros, 100-120 for the average Joe) and you do have to walk your 18 holes. Unless you need one of those carts to carry your fat @$$. Also, if you don't have a caddie to carry your bag, you get even more exercise and respect; those bags can be heavy if you really load them with clubs...

Sex is the "bedroom sport", although you can practice it in many other places.

I don't think golf is a sport. Look at other sports. and compare them to golf. It isn't similar to basketball. It's nothing like football. Barely like baseball. Just my opinion though

Too bad opinion doesn't count when sport is clearly defined.

The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

This is stupid, it obviously is, has anyone actually played golf here? it's hard as fuck and requires alot of skill.
Everyone knows it's a sport right?
And if it wasn't a sport what would it be?

If your dad says it is a game, he's wrong. Science says so:

http://www.cybergolf.com/golf_news/scientist_determines_golf_a_sport

As does the following:

1) Competitive in nature: Yes

2) Requires physical skill or prowess: Yes. Just because something isn't a work out doesn't mean it lacks physical skill.

3) Is governed by a set of rules and an organisation: Yes. Noth amateur and professional golf is governed by an organisation. Even at small clubs, this is done through the rules.

Don't ask me why it's sports science. I have no idea.

I will agree it's boring to watch. Although it is quite fun to play.


I actually live across from a golf course and yet I've never played.

I guess I just subscribed to the "good walk spoiled" mentality, bit closed minded of me sure enough but hell, Pobody's Nerfect.
