You mean be a 59 yr old Tom Watson and be an 8 ft putt for par from winning the British Open ? Because golf is an aquired skill GAME that even an old man can win at ? NO, I'll take tennis, an athletic SPORT, where something like that could never happen.
I would argue that tennis is as "like that" as it can possibly be in relation to golf, given that tennis requires an absurd amount more athletic skill than golf. Golf requires skill, but its volatility is due to the fact that, like poker, it's subject to streakiness much more than a tennis major, etc.
