How about chess? Golf seems very physically demanding when compared to chess no?
And some people consider chess a sport.
Chess definately isn't, you have to move a piece from 1 spot to another based on strategy, anyone can do, and you don't need great reflexes, or hand eye coordination, or stamina, etc.
I would say no, based on the fact you sit don't move a lot while playing, though it does require a steady hand, and good hand eye.
Darts? Snooker? Shove ha'penny? Hopscotch?
these are boarderline, I would put them in the sport catagory, but just barely
How about fishing, then?
I don't understand how archery, javelin throw, etc... are more of a sport than golf.
and these are olympic sports..
Fish can be a sport if it's in some sort of competition I would think so
In the U.S. Poker has been on our sports channels for years
How in the world can poker be considered a sport????????
Poker isn't a sport, and yes I agree shouldn't be on sports channels
There's plenty of grey area between sport and game, and everyone will never agree when something is in this grey area, but I definately think Golf is a sport, and things like chess, and poker aren't
