Re: Why is golf so crazy rich?

It's the biggest test of character in all of life. If you can negotiate a tough golf course, you can negotiate anything.

Not that East Lake is a tough course…

Golf isn't even a real sport, it's a favorite pastime of rich Japanese salarymen. It's a joke these guys get paid so much while real athletes struggle to make a living

Proper golf? What the fuck does that even mean? Golf is much of a sport as darts and bowling. Sorry, but any fat 50 year old slob can succeed in this "sport". It's a joke.

no one said its a sport so what are you whining about this time muppet

is there anything out there left where you dont sound like a bitter hateful old hag when you talk about it?


why are they not worth it if the business and tv out there are willing to put up the money

wait for the Ryder Cup next week, 2 billion worldwide audience and nothing like it for excitement and pressure

then again its the best players in the world - European and Americans dominate - and your Australians are shite thesedays.... like they are in everything else

probably why you are such a hag.

I am just a realist Nerds like yourself claiming golf is something special when it's really a pastime for the rich. The fact that it's popular means fuck all.

Quote:

Because most people in the world are dumb. After all McDonalds and Britney Spears are popular as well.

Quote:

Who cares? I'd rather chill, get wasted and play games rather than watching guys dressed like pimps roll balls into holes

Quote:

Once again you are viewing the situation incorrectly. I couldn't give less of a fuck if yanks or euros dominated this "sport". Dominating golf is akin to dominating WWE - pointless.

And you are a blind nationalistic bandwagoner, bitter that nobody gives a shit about UK anymore How's that national debt, btw
