Absolutely a sport, easily one of the most challenging too. No team members to lean on , its all you win or loose & incredibly difficult to master. Not to mention it teaches much better values to kids than other sports.

It's easily a sport. It requires incredible coordination and there is a strong mental side to it as well, both qualities of all sports and not many "games". And it is physically challenging. If you walk 18 holes and aren't a little wore out then you aren't doing it right

Golf should not be considered a sport due to the lack of physical activity. It should be considered as a game.

Takashi obviously has never played golf. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

How about an activity that requires NO skill at all

Definition of sport:
1. an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, GOLF, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.
So I would consider it a sport.

If a "sport" can be judged, then it is not a sport. Most sports with times are sports. Golf doesn't have a time but it isn't judged and involves competition by score based on a under or over par scale. Golf is a sport and I love to play it.

Sports give u a workout... Golf is not a workout.

Not a sport I mean. It's a game

No. It's not. Here's the thing- all sports are games, but not all games are sports.

Golf takes more skill and practice than almost any sport.

Golf as a whole is a sport, individual competitions such as the Masters is a game. Same as baseball, hockey, football, etc.

The winner of a PGA tour event earns $1-2 Million dollars in 4 days. Whatever you call it, it's worth it.

Neither. It is simply "punishment" that some choose to endure.

If people earn millions of dollars playing golf, then it's a sport

@bluegrass, I play beer league hockey, and have hade a water bottle full of beer once or twice. Does that mean hockey isn't a sport?

Definitely both, like baseball, poker, chess, rugby, etc.

If you can drink and play it at the same time it's not a sport

I would say game because the mental aspect of it is much more demanding than the physical aspect.

350 lb 75 year olds can swim. Swimming's not a sport? They just cant swim very well. Some can play basketball. Heck my gpa was prob 200 and like 88 and he was playing tennis daily for at least 10 years. So swimming basketball and tennis aren't sports? (just to name a few)

If a 350lb 75 year old can be good at it... It's not a sport.

Some people are athletes but all athletes are people.

Unless we are talking about horse racing.

Oh gosh, this is sooooo complicated!!

If curling is an Olympic sport. Then golf should be considered the same. Hell, so should bowling or darts or ladder golf.

I believe it is referred to as "the game of golf". Just like "the olympic games".

It's a sport. Just like lawn bowling and croquet. Look at the tremendous physical condition these guys are in. I mean, they exhaust themselves so thoroughly that they need to have people carry their shit around for them and often use carts. Not to mention the drinking and smoking all day long.

Those who think its just a game have not tried playing it!
It's not easy by any stretch of imagination!
Even Tiger Woods is trying to get better every day!
