Golf is a wayyyyy better sport and dumb old soccer. Golf takes patients and you have to be good at it.....PLUS it makes wayy more money. Also you get alot of free cool things just for playing and get to play on beautiful golf courses on a big field.....who doesnt like that?!...And the BEST part is GOLF CARTS!! :P

AFFIRMATIVE ARGUMENTS
Golf takes patience.
This statement might be true but that's about the only skill you need. In soccer you have to have GREAT coordination, dribbling skills, shooting skills, blocking skills, guarding skills

Makes way more money
If you take the average of all the money that golfers make and take the average of all the money that soccer players make.. soccer players will have alot higher average

free cool things
you get free things from soccer also it is a sport and sports have sponsors which means free things... and plus cool is entirely an opinion so there's no way she can prove this argument.

You get to play on beautiful courses on a big field
soccer just so happens to also be on a big field. and beautiful yet again is an opinion.

Golf Carts
what makes golf carts so great. there is no reasoning for her argument.(another opinion)

NEW ARGUMENTS
Soccer is the biggest sport in the world without a doubt and is the number one sport in just about every country including asia and africa. i have a quot from articlebase.com stating
"there was a global television audience of 49 billion people for the 2002 World Cup alone."

Soccer is just as hard as golf if not harder. also from articlebase.com stating
"This game can be as frustrating as golf, as physical as football and hockey, as erratic as baseball, and as exciting as basketball."

and I also had a question for the pro..
do you believe that soccer players or golfers are more respected in the world (note how i said world and not america)

id have to say some of the advantages for your golf are the same for soccer, "on a beautiful big field"... usually soccer plays on a big green field during a beautiful day unless they dont mind rain, i would except but i think it would be a little odd knowing i dont play either and dont know all the disadvantages to both

I would take this except for the fact I hate both sports and to advocate either one would make me feel like a hypocrite.
