Anybody else sick of the media's endless liplock on this guy's dick? It's like he's the Yankees, Red Sox and Peyton f#cking Manning all rolled up in a single person. Every report about any tournament he plays in is "X is in the lead, and Tiger is Y shots back," like there are only two guys playing. Christ, enough already.

At this point, I kind of enjoy it when he doesn't win, and I don't give a shit about golf, either.

We get to watch golf's greatest player perform. What he is accomplishing is simply amazing.

Well, it is one of the 4 tournaments that make up the Grand Slams in Tennis.

Either that, or it is what the Mexicans call our Southern Border.

Do you remember Golf on TV before Tiger Woods? Because I don't.

He, himself, totally rejuvenated interest in Golf in the United States.

Does anybody on here ever watch a tournament when Tiger Woods isn't competing?

Tiger is a global icon. He may be perhaps the most recognizable sports figure in the entire world right now. What he has done for golf, in my eyes, is more than what Jordan did for basketball. I started playing golf because of Tiger Woods. It made me interested in it, and some of the best years growing up, in high school, and on my college years was playing golf with friends, parents, relatives, or competitively in tournaments. Golf is a sport that transcends age and time and is a great passion that extends through a person's entire life.

If Tiger wins today, it will be his 13th Major and he is only 31. This is when golfers come into their prime. The guy won four majors in a row in the modern day golf game, that to me, puts him on the list of the most remarkable athletes of all time.

Sorry Golf is just like WWE without the written plot... Thats cool you play golf because of him but lets not kid ourselves on it being a sport.. Maybe a non-athletic sport, kind of like flag core, nascar and bowling...

I have won the last three Washers tournaments in KC, one more and I get the Sweep.. Yes me.. And I am not even 31 yet, **** no where near my prime...

As for athletes, how the **** does he even break a top 100 list?? What do you consider an athlete??? He is awesome at what he does, but it is a skill not and not athletice one.. I can consistently drive over 300 with some 1980's clubs I have at the driving range I must be a phenom... Only athletic part of Golf for the pro's is having to walk everywhere..

The thing that bothered me the most about the Tiger era is what they did to the scoreboards. In the past, they would list the players based upon score first and number of holes completed thereafter. So if you had three guys at -5 and they were done at different times, it would look like this

-5 (16)
-5 (13)
-5 (12)

When Tiger came along, they automatically shot him to the top no matter how few holes he'd competed.

It's a really small thing, but in a sport like golf, where traditions and rules are paramount, it's really a dick move.

You are truly a f*cking idiot. The golf swing is one of the most difficult moves to perform in all of sports.

The great Sam Snead once said this about the difference between golf and baseball

"In golf, you play your foul balls."

I agree, a skill does not equal a sport. Golf is a game, period. It doesn't mean that gold isn't hard, for some reason many an idiot seem to take it as some huge insult that it isn't really a sport. But when one of the best players in the league can walk around with a flabby gut and man boobs, well, golf just doesn't make you an athlete.

Hamas - Well, that and the ball isn't flying at you at 100 mph with guys standing out there with gloves to throw it back in, oh, and the running. Of course I don't see many players putting on scuba gear to hit it out of the water hazard, but hey, I guess that really isn't a foul ball... Stupid quote.

I just chalk it up to golf people trying to justify themselves.. Golf swing difficult my ass, you are a ****ing joke if you are trying to justify a golf swing being difficult. You are ****ing moron hamas... Golf does not take athletic ability to play besides walking, or are the little 13 year old girls playing to 85 year old men mean they are all athletic phenomenons you asshat...

Hey hey, lets not get into the agrument of golf is a sport. This thread is about the US Open. Let it be known, that golf is widely considered a sport, and so is auto racing. I understand what those are saying that golf is a skill and not a sport, but to the public, it is considered a sport, and golfers, race car drivers, are considered athletes. I agree, golf does not take a whole lot of athletic ability, but this does not mean it is a sport. There's alot of baseball players too that don't have alot of athletic ability as well, but that it's not a sport. I guarantee you that Tiger Woods is alot more athletic that some MLB baseball players, such as David Wells. I bet Tiger Woods bench presses 2-3 times more than Kevin Durant. It's hard to pick and choose who we consider athletes so can't we just compromise and call golfers sports figures?

I didn't say that it was more difficult than baseball, did I?

Show me where I did, and I'll gladly have GoChiefs suck your 2 centimeter dick.

However, the activity of golf is incredibly difficult, and relentless, which was the point of the quote.

The golf swing is an incredibly difficult athletic manuever that requires exception coordination and body speed as well as timing. Conflating it with auto racing is a ridiculous comparision.

If you can honestly tell me that you can swing a 46" stick on an 8 foot arc and hit a ball on an area of the club less than 1/16" across and it's not an athletic move, then you are a certifiable dumbass.

And Valiant, your defense is a complete non-sequitur, kind of like how your synaptic process is non functional.

Old men and girls play basketball, but that doesn't detract from its difficulty or make it not a sport.

Just because Phil Mickelson or Vijay Singh can't run a 4.3 forty doesnt' mean that they aren't athletes. You have a ridiculously narrow definition of what athletics is.

Nope, not going to do it. I would also say that it is not a widely held belief, otherwise race car drivers would not be crying to be considered athletes every damn year.

Woods is a great golfer, not a great athlete. Golf is a game of skill, just like bowling and darts.

HAHA, steroids has almost zero correlation to hitting the long ball or anything that is going to make a someone better at the game. Does it help? Maybe, but not much at all. On my college golf team, I was the strongest person on the team, didn't make a lick of difference for how good I was or how far I hit it. Flexibility, mental toughness, and height I'd say are bigger influences on how good a golfer can be.

Hey, your the one who pulled up the "In golf, you play your foul balls." quote, needle dick. Throwing a dart in the 60 point spot every time is also a very difficult maneuver, as is throwing a bowling ball on the 13th board with the right aproach speed, follow through, and the right speed coming off of your hand.

But nice try.

You have absof*ckinglutley no idea what you are talking about. There are three distinct parts of the golf swing, each with multiple smaller components. A failure at any one part causes a disastrous result.

If you miss the sweet spot in baseball by 1/16" you hit a homerun. If you do it in golf, you've missed the fairway. If you are a split second late and don't get around on a ball in baseball, you hit can hit a double to the opposite field. If you do it in golf, you hit a huge push cut that is probably flirting with OB.

The average PGA pro has a swing speed of 112 MPH. I guaranf*ckingtee your fat ass can't get above 80.

You know what that takes? Strength, flexibility and body speed.

How is that not an athletic maneuver, you lowly fringe f*ck.

Go back to post thirty and take your 3rd grade bitch ass through that post again.

Go to a golf store and swing a club and see if you can get it above 85 mph. I'll guarandamntee that you can't with ANY degree of precision.

Yeah, you can hit the ball on the sweet spot if you just tap it and move your club 2 inches, but the degree of coordination you need to hit it square AND the degree of strength AND flexibility (again, post 30 you f*cking git idiot) to hit the ball both far and straight makes it immeasurably more of an athletic move than throwing a dart.

If darts involved throwing it as far as you could while still trying to hit a target, then yeah, maybe your analogy would make sense. But it doesn't, so as always, you're a goddamned idiot.

Post 30 mentions baseball, a sport in which someone else is actually trying to effect your play with a pitch, a ball in motion, golf the only enemy on the course is you.

Post 30 mentions baseball, a sport in which someone else is actually trying to effect your play with a pitch, a ball in motion, golf the only enemy on the course is you.

But post 30 neither mentions bowling or darts, you stupid rag pulled out of Denis's twat.

Jesus, you are an idiot.

You said "athletic"

What is the entire second half of that post devoted to?

Swing speed, strength, flexibility and coordination.

Do you remember Golf on TV before Tiger Woods? Because I don't.

He, himself, totally rejuvenated interest in Golf in the United States.

Does anybody on here ever watch a tournament when Tiger Woods isn't competing?

Just because they play golf does not make them athletes, but it doesn't preclude them from being athletes either you reading comprehension of a two year old dumb ass.

The irony of this is palpable, considering that you and Valiant are trying to exclude people who don't have archetypal sports bodies.

Of course, your post is wrong on both points, since a number of MLB pitchers prove that you don't have to be a Greek God to be a phenomenal athlete, and 2) it just so happens that top 10 golfers in the world are well built athletically and have strong athletic backgrounds in sports that aren't golf. And that in no way helps them, because athletic ability again isn't based on things like strength, flexibility and coordination...right ROFL

My mine point all along was about Golf not being a sport, so not automatically making you an athlete. The rest was to keep you more and more pissed off.

Golf is a game of skill, and saying that your have to be precise and fast does not make it any less of a skill, nor does it make it any more of a sport.

Translation: "I knew I was completely and utterly pwned, so I'm spinning it to make it look a little bit better for me."

Moving on

I think that to be a sport TO PLAY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL you have to have some combination of strength, flexibility, hand eye coordination, and speed.

People who aren't athletes can play sports, but simply because the participants in one area aren't athletes, that doesn't make the activities not sports.

Bowling requires one of those--coordination

Darts require coordination

Auto Racing requires coordination

Basketball requires at least three, and in reality all four, as does football. Hockey requires 3-4. Golf requires all, but strength to a lesser (but not wholly unimportant) degree.

That is why it's a sport.

Not only did I refute that with the initial post in which I addressed it, where I said that throwing the darts as far and AS accurately would make it closer to what is trying to be done in golf, but I just did it in my previous one to this, where I listed what I think connotates a sport and why darts are dumbass bowling doesn't qualify.

Speed of the ball being thrown does not equal speed of the human body.

Body speed is one of the most important ingredients in golf. It's something all top pros have, and it's not a coincidence. Speed= a faster clubhead= a greater distance off the tee.

Flexibility: Swing a club correctly. You'll have to rotate your shoulders 90 degrees or more while turning your hips less than 45 with both feet on the ground, making sure that you don't lose any of the flex in your knees

Coordination is ovious.

Strength is still important. All top pros will tell you that lifting weights has added 1-3 clubs in overall length. But it's not important, it is :rolleyes:

Have you played golf more than just a few times? Seriously, your entire argument reeks of ignorance of the greatest degree.

How's this:

1) Why do you have to be competing against a human being directly? With bowling there is only one variable, how slick the lane is. With golf you aren't playing on a standardized field, unlike every other sport. That means that you are constantly competing against mother nature, which although not animate, is still every bit as tough as a person. Wind changes, the break on every green fluctuates. Green speeds are different according to a number of factors. If you have a bunker shot to a green that is running away from you, it has to be played entirely different from a bunker shot if the green is sloped towards you.

With bowling you have constants. The lane doesn't develop slope as you move past the third frame.

Bowling would be like golf if all golf involved was going to a putting green and trying to sink 11 straight 12 foot putts on a same line.

But it is immeasureably more involved than that, and the degree of variables that you have to contend with make it every bit as difficult as any sport where you play directly against a human being.

Once again, bowling has one variable, the lane.

The irony of this is absolutely outstanding. You are the one who knows nothing of golf adamantly arguing that it's not a sport when you know nothing of the variables involved, or the fact that it requires direct competition.

You weren't able to rebut the argument for flexibility

You couldn't offer substantiative evidence other than "I don't think so" for the body speed argument.

You conceded the coordination.

There is obviously direct competition involved against both animate AND inanimate objects.

It has every factor of a sport except contacting another human being.

By that measure, is the 100M not a sport? Is the discus, pole vault, or swimming not a sport. They don't involve contact either, are they not sports.

Anyone can play a sport badly, but that in and of itself doesn't make the activity not a sport. If an old man goes out and airballs a 3 in a pickup game it doesn't make basketball a "skill".

For all the people who doubt that you have to be physically conditioned to play golf, I'd like you to go play 18 holes on a moderate summer day, let's say 80 degrees.

You've got about 25 pounds strapped to your back while walking anywhere from 4-6 miles. Meanwhile, you are battling heat and have to try and execute a move that requires a tremendous amount of flexibility and speed to do correctly. If you are out of shape, you will begin fade over the last several holes as your hamstrings tire and your back begins to tighten up. As a result, you'll begin hitting shots way off line.


Yeah, some guys play in carts. Some people also play two hand touch football and half court basketball. That isn't a good enough argument for making it not a sport.

No races are not sports, they are races. There is a reason it is called the Olympic Games. I'm not saying that any of those things are easy, and that you don't have to be athletic to do them. It really isn't all that hard to grasp.

This has been fun and all watching you whine about how tough golf is, but really, you are memyself with a lame user name, and I really don't care about your opinion.

Translation: I can't offer any kind of rebuttal, so I'll resort to calling you Denise.


So, the 100 meter dash is not a sport, nor is the marathon...ok.


Moreoever, the Olympic Games are all games.

What was that sport that the US used to do pretty well in during the Olympics? Basketball was it?

How about baseball, soccer, boxing, hockey...all sports contested on the Olympic level.


Do you enjoy showing your ass this much, or are you working on your tan?

Oh, and just to drive the stake in the heart of this Olympic idea:

Game: (n) a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators.

Sport: (n)an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature,

—Synonyms 1. game.

Baseball.

Hell, the Red Sox took shots before their games in the playoffs in 2004.

Also I never said baseball was a hard physical sport. You are arguing that it is so physically demanding. So demanding that a chain smoking overweight duck waddles up and wins a major. GRUELING I SAY GRUELING.

See what I mean, you twist more then Denise. You started the name calling, so don't whine now my pretty little bitch.

Did I say anywhere that everything in the Olympics were games? Nope. IMHO, for the record, a game can be a sport, not all games are sports.

You know my definition, a bunch of other people here share it, you can take it or leave it, I don't care.

And what the **** is your fascination with my ass, every other post you are wanting my ass in the air or someone to stick something in it. Damn you are a sick ****.

Golf is SOOooo Hard that it has to be a sport and to do it well you must also be considered a great athlete.

I understand though, it's tough to see yourself as others see you..

You couldn't have picked a more appropo character from any movie/show. That's EXACTLY how I picture that dude and it doesn't have anything to do with the "original thought" portion of that clip. It's the big, blustery verbiage coupled with the over-the-top hostility.... It's actually quite comical.

ROFL...No, you just used the Olympics as a blanket statement and reductively placed those areas under the auspice of "game" and not "sport".

I didn't say grueling, did I? There are degrees of proportionality here that you are overlooking. The only thing that I was arguing in regards to its physical difficulty is that it isn't the walk in the park that many people describe it to be. I never said it was a triathalon.

Being tougher than most people think does not mean that it is grueling. I'm sorry if you can't see that rather clear distinction.

Did I say great athlete? I said "athlete".

Many of the best hitters and pitchers in baseball couldn't sniff the jock of the 12th man on an NBA team in regards to athleticism, but that doesn't retract from baseball being a sport.

You have such a simplistic binary view of things it's pathetic. It's either 1 or 0 with no room in between.

I don't think you necessarily have to be an athlete to play golf, but Tiger Woods is definitely a world-class athlete. I don't think there's any question about that. He is like a machine.

You don't necessarily have to be an athlete to play golf, baseball, football or any other sport for that matter. However, IMO, to be at the top, you need to be an athlete. The guys that are at the top in golf, and any other professional sport have to work at it.
