sport (spôrt, sprt)
n.
1.
a. Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively.
It falls under the definiton of sport, and therefore it is a sport.


buddyholly example makes it clear that it is indeed a sport.

Do chess players spend hours on the practice board, developing the physical skill of moving a chess piece from one square to another?

Do golf players mentally decide to where they would like to move the ball, and then carry it there in one hand and set it down?

F1 drivers tend to be super fit. Try a couple of laps in one and you'll feel like your head is falling off.

Anyway, to the thread's point. No, it's not a sport. It's a game, like bowling or darts or chess or go or poker. Nothing bad with that.

Golf is really tough on the joints, my back doesn't let me play it.

But I still think its a hobby. I mean anything you can wear long trousers and dress/polo shirts, have a massive gut and/or chew gum and win majors past 40 years of age can't really be classified a sport.

So there nothing physical about driving a ball 350 yards down a fairway?

News to me.
