Ever try to walk 18 holes? How about in 90+ degrees of heat?

Yes, Steve, he is one of the greatest athletes of our generation.

Justifying as a sport? You obviously aren't a golfer

If you are out of shape, yeah walking is a big deal.

:y4: :y4:

Poker should be a sport too.

Tiger isnt an athlete. Because if he was then Arnold Palmer, Vijay Singh, Erie Els, Sergio are athletes also?

No defense? Did you see some of those bunkers this weekend? Golf is a sport just like javelin throwing is a sport just like anything that requires physical skill to play. It may not be as physically demanding as football or basketball, but its still a sport.

Tomorrow's QOTD: "Is golf a sport?"
 
# 8 dieselboy @ 07/24/06 01:19 PM
QOTD:

Yes, without a doubt.

Lance Armstrong? No.

QOTD: Golfing is a sport but it doesnt involve athleticism so therefore he is not one of the best athletes but he is one of the best golfers ever.

I think Tiger is one of the greatest golfers ever. Dealing with physically strenuous sports, no. He is real skilled no doubt at his sport. Respect for that. Greatest athlete?? Hard to really say. I hear Babe Ruth was a bad mother sucker. That Michael Jordan character is a good one to mention too. Can also toss in Magic Johnson, Bill Russel, Wilt, Hank Aaron, Joe Montana.....there is not greatest athlete I'd think. Just a bunch of greats though.......

Greatest American Athletic Legacies:

-Babe Ruth

-Muhammad Ali

-Micheal Jordan


and now, I think Tiger Woods belongs up there with these names who transcend their sport and will forever be remebered as the best their ever was.

I'm not a golfer, I hate golf, my nasty ex girlfriend was a golfer which even makes it worse.

However, his pure dominance of a sport that requires as much mental strength as physical prowess makes him a great athlete.
One of the best athletes ever?
Hell No.

I can name 20 better athletes therefore excluding him from "best athlete ever contention", however he is one of the best athletes of the past 20 years, hows that?

And I would have Lance Armstrong on the list before him anyday of the week.
