  • Golf is a sport.

    There is a debate going on in the world about golf. If it’s a sport or a game. I think golf is a sport because it has competition and a national league, it meets the definition and standards of a sport, and it takes a lot more skill and effort than just swinging a club.
    Before 1900 golf had never been in the Olympics. 1900 was golfs first appearance in the Olympics. Up to today golf has only been in the Olympics a couple of times since 1900. And this year, 2016, golf will also be included in the Olympics. And I think that only sports are included in the Olympics so that's further proof that golf is a sport. But as Rory Mcilroy says Different people have different opinions about the topic(Rory Mcilroy). Meaning that everyone can think what they want about the topic. Golf also has big leagues all over the world and including the United States.
    Golf fits both the definition of game and sport. So which one does it fit better. Some say that it fits game better, like sports philosopher Bernard Suits says sport is more skill than chance, and requires physical skill(Bernard Suit). But however the definition of sport fits golf pretty well too. It requires physical exertion, which golf has. And competition which golf also has. So again it might fit game better but in the definition of game it says a game can be some sort of play or sport. Also in the definition of sport it says it involves some skill and in the definition of game it says it's decided by either strength, luck, or skill.
    Golf takes a lot of skill and practice if you want to be good. From Pia Nilsson, Lynn Marriott, and Ron Sirak, they made something called BTT(Pia Nilsson, Lynn Marriott, and Ron Sirak). Balance, tempo, and tension can all be variables in how your game turns out. Balance needs to be good to hit the ball in the spot you want to hit it each time. Tempo as in to vary it. So with different clubs you need to learn how to vary your back swing and for swing tempo. You need to be loose. Tention makes your shot worse if you're not loose.
    So as you see there are lots of different variables on how your game of golf will turn out, and it takes a lot more skill than it looks. So is it a sport? In my opinion yes, but the real answer is up to you to figure out, because there is no real answer.

  • Golf in Olympics could help the sport

    Interest in the game of golf is waning because it is very difficult for many and the associated costs are extremely high. By including golf in the Olympics, more people around the world could become interested in the game. The game of golf is helpful to many economies of developing countries.

  • Yes, Golf Should be an Olympic Sport

    Sports in the Olympics are supposed to be sports that are enjoyed globally, as the Olympics is a global activity. Golf meets this requirement, given that many famous golfers come from all of the continents (barring Antarctica). Golf tournaments also occur in many countries, meaning that people around the world must like golf.

  • Golf is not worthy of being an Olympic sport

    I think that golf should be removed once more from the roster of Olympic events. It does not attract the same kinds of crowds or excitement that other events, such as swimming or diving, do. This drives down ticket sales and revenue for the host country. As a result, golf is more of a detriment to the Olympics rather than a help.

  • No it should not.

    Golf may be popular in the United States and the UK, but it is not popular enough arround the world for it to be an Olympic sport. There are already enough sports that are only played in the United States and a few other countries and we do not need to add more.
