Okay golf is fun to play on occasion. I do so myself once in a while. Today, as I find myself doing the regular Sunday things today around the house, my better half is folding clothes and watching some golf on TV. The Masters I believe is this weekend. Could be wrong. While, as noted, golf can be fun to play once in a while but it is a chore to watch on television. I noticed at one point someone made a very great (lucky) shot and the roar of the crowd almost drowned out the announcer(s). I can think of a lot of things to do at a golf tournament (poon gaze, get hammered, eat too much, etc.), but braying about a long putt someone made is not one of them. I am just not sure if I would classify golf as a sport. A fun pass time perhaps, but a sport; perhaps not. I pretty much have the same thoughts about bowling and (gasp) poker.
