It's a mildly athletic leisure activity, where the only excercise is the whole thing being an excercise in futility.

Chasing that stupid fucking white ball around....dammit

GO TO YOUR HOME!!!!!

lol horse racing is a sport for the horses and the cardiac case in the stands...

I guess I'll concede that auto-racing (NOT Nasscar!!) is a sport if you're going to be mean and lump it in with golf.

Though the only way golf is a sport is if there's excessive drinking involved during the round of golf.

That's a sport when you count the inevitable bar brawl at the end of the drunken night :)

Golf is a sport IMO.

Any competition is a sport for the most part that includes some form of physical exertion.

Of course then you need to break it down into sub-groups dpending on the amount of athletic exterion, and competition.

Like how wrestling is "Sports Entertainment".

I think sport doesn't apply just to athletics, but to competition as a whole.

maybe we need a "sportiness" rating system.

golf could be around a 3, bowling 2.5, tennis 8, hockey 8 (unless you're the goalie, then it's a 7.5), baseball player(5)/pitcher(4)/DH(3), poker 2, eating contests 2, etc...

Golf is not a sport, to me, because it requires very little physical exertion. Any sport that has someoen (john daly) who is super fat, out of shape, couldn't run to save his life, and who can smoke a cigarette while hitting the ball 300+ yards, well, that doesn't count as "sport" to me.

Sport is defined as a physical activity, governed by rules. It's a very poor definition that needs changing.

The reason you see golf clips on "sportscentre" and others, is because there is no RAN (recreational activity network).

poker is definetly not a sport. Not even close.

its considered a sport if your heart rate increases by 10% over resting (ie- sitting on the couch watching tv)
so by this definition, sex is a sport?

As long as you subscribe to this definition, golf is a sport. End of story.

wtf?? obviously you need to try playing a full 60 minute game between the pipes...you have to be mentally alert the entire game (no breaks on the bench to relax)...you need to be physically ready to handle the 100mph pucks being fired at you...and knowing that a single mistake more-often-than-not results in a goal, you have to be able to handle the pressure of being the last line of defence for your entire team...

but i also think golf is a sport, so what do i know...

seems more in line with car racing... high reflexes and mental endurance. not as sporty as flying around the rink and making silky passes...

not really sure if you can judge a sport by the physical shape of it's participants...in a recent study football was declaired as the sport having the most out of shape "athletes"...lots of fat guys in football who's only job is to make sure someone doesn't move 5 feet past them while they do their best to stand their ground....baseball has it's share of loads, wells,molina,jenks,fielder come to mind...even basketball has had some lards...remember oliver miller...shak just dropped 40 pounds and admitted he was out of shape all those years with the lakers...

as far as daly smoking while he plays, bodie miller skied while drunk and david wells has pitched drunk...more than a few hockey players have played after a snort of blow...

as far as golf, yes there are some fatties out there but if you look at the top players in the world rankings they all put in their time in the fitness trailer....golf might be a soft sport compared to others but it's still a sport and you'll have to come up with a better argument than a few beer bellies to convince me otherwise :D

Many athletes in other sports have stated that they believe that Tiger Woods is in the best shape of any athlete in any sport. The Tiger-effect has rubbed off on lots of other players -- as torontobarfly points out, these days almost every top golfer is in excellent physical shape. Players like John Daly are the exception, rather than the rule (Daly is a natural talent, who would probably be a dominating golfer if he ever gave a shit)
