Mike Gold Biography

Retired entrepreneur
Con to the question "Is Golf a Sport?"

“Golf is not a sport… Now why don’t I consider it a sport?

1. Golfers don’t all look like they are in shape. Is the name Jon Daly familiar to you? He’s reported as being 5’11” tall weighing 215 lbs. He does not look like he’s ever stopped at the salad bar. However, he can drive a ball well over 300 yards. This pisses me off.

2. You are on the honor system. Any real sport does not let you get away with this.

3. If you watch any United States President play golf, the secret service agents who hide out in the woods will kick an errant shot back out onto the fairway. What’s sporty about that?”
