Golf has always been a controversial sport. Many people find it competitive and fun, but is that enough to constitute a sport? The definition of sport, according to Google, is an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. A sport or not a sport, that is the question.
According to Samueli Academy’s Boys Golf Coach, Mr. Jones, golf not being a sport is a bunch of BS. He goes on to state that golf is respected by the Olympic Committee because it will be in the Olympics in the year 2020.
Although Mr. Jones made his point very clear, many people believe that golf is not a sport. Golf doesn’t involve much conditioning.
Golf does need lots of practice. You need to have lots of skill to be a good golf player. Between keeping your elbow straight and staying at an athletic pose, the sport offers many challenges to overcome.
An apparent trend is that many people that don’t think golf is a sport have never played golf before. Don't judge a book by its cover.
Mr. Jones is the boys golf coach and genuinely enjoys golf as a hobby. Mr. Kalbhen makes sure that everyone knows his passione for disliking golf. The feud between the two is something that many people find entertaining. Mr. Jones and Mr. Kalban may have very different opinions on golf and many people may argue about this subject as well. Golf is a very controversial sport that many people play in the United States.
Golf was in the Olympics in 1900 and 1904. It was recently added in 2016 and will be in 2020. All in all, golf is an olympic sport
