Golf is not a sport

Golf is a sport.

Question 1:
Why would golf not be a sport but League of Legends is?

Question 2:
Golf requires more physical energy than air sports, i.e. flying airplanes. Why that and not this?

Question 3:
The Olympics has it as of the 2016 summer Olympics.

I will assume that my opponent has given up. This however won't stop me from continuing my points.

Based on the amount of calories burned during a round of golf, a sports scientist has determined that golf burns a lot of calories.

Most say golf isn't because they are comparing it to baseball, football, and basketball. They say that sports must be very physically intense.

And yes, golf isn't very physically straining. But, if you believe a sport requires eye-hand coordination, intense focus, stamina and a cut-throat sense of competition, you cannot help but call golf a sport.

Golf is very much a sport. Maybe not the most physically demanding sport but does exert some sort of physical energy, much like the definition of sport dictates. If you do not consider Golf a sport, then exclude Bowling even though it is a sport as well.
