You know what would be eerie? Being an active member of a forum for 10 years. I still remember when I was on dial-up, wow.

Golf is a fun leisure activity, but a pretty lame sport. But yeah it's definitely more popular, because an American dominates the sport. If an American were dominating tennis then it would be huge for the sport's popularity.

Re: Is golf more popular than tennis?

Sometimes when I've looked in the magazine racks for some tennis magazines, I might find one or two, while there are always 6 or 7 golf magazines on hand. I actually like watching golf on TV (though not as much as I like watching tennis -- or hockey, or basketball or a lot of other things), but can anything be more boring than to read about golf?

I know, and it's not like it's a sport anyways.
Ever wonder why it's not in the Olympics...coz IT'S NOT A SPORT....
They walk from hole to hole, I wonder what kind of training they actually need
Unlike tennis players

Re: Is golf more popular than tennis?

Yep, in England. Apart from at Wimbeldon time, there isn't much 'general coverage' for a casual fan, whereas there is alot of stuff on golf if you just turn on the TV. I've never watched golf, yet I could name you alot of players. I'm not sure I could say the same if it was the other way round.

Re: Is golf more popular than tennis?

It gets higher ratings in the US so yes it is more popular here in the US. I have no clue elsewhere. Many different kinds of people play golf not just rich people, that is the same BS that was once said about tennis and still is to a degree.

While many people can get by playing tennis without lessons (at least at a very basic level) Golf is much harder to learn to enjoy on one's own without at least some basic instruction. I would think that tennis gets HARDER as you learn more.

Another fact is that it takes a lot more money to play golf (despite tennis also being an "elite" sport)

There are plenty of free public courts and very cheap clubs where I live; while in order to play golf you need to join a country club, or play for about $60US per day.

Another thing is the time investment part of it. People can always find 1.5-2 hours to play tennis...but golf requires much more time (Because, unlike in tennis, the ball does not come to you )

Therefore, the only people that can play are rich, white guys!
