I have really the utmost admiration of the skill that it takes to golf. I mean, over the summer my buddy and I went Chip & Putt a bunch, and it certainly shed a new light on what it takes to play. And that isn't even a true golf game. I fucking suck at it honestly. With that experience, I had no choice but to chalk it up to a sport. The fact that you can be overweight or smoke or drink while doing it is irrelevant. Im overweight and I play ice hockey with other overweight guys who are old and drink beer before and after the game. I know this guy probably means this on a professional level, but I still think the point can be made.
At least he recognizes the intense skill it takes to play, and isn't totally dismissing it.
Tiger being the best ATHLETE of the decade? Definitely the richest and most popular, but best athleticism is definitely a no.
