LOL. Tiger Woods is the exception that proves the rule. In no real sport would someone trying to make the argument that their game is a sport say, "yeah but this one time we actually had a really athletic dude play and he was really good!" The reason it is consistently remarked on that Tiger Woods was in great shape is because it was so much outside the norm. If your heart rate doesn't break 100 bpm, you aren't playing a sport, period. Even downhill skiing runs at moderate-heavy cardio. Golf is no different physically than a stroll around the neighborhood, and I don't care what the dictionary says if we start having competitive strolling, it will also not be a sport. And precision doesn't make it a sport either. Bowling is not a sport. Nor are competitive video games, even though they require precise hand-eye coordination.

I don't know why you golfers feel such a need to claim otherwise. Bowling, shooting, billiards, golf, etc. are all worthwhile endeavors that require a ton of skill and are very impressive when played well. But only golfer seems to feel the need to pretend their activity is a sport. (I think because many golfers are doing it on the weekends as their "exercise" and there's a psychological need to call this a sport or something, but I digress.)

As long as you can play overweight, over-age or even a broken leg. You can play the game. That being said, it's an activity like chess, table tennis and air hockey

This was debated in Sweden until Annika Sörenstam, the well known female golfer participated in a TV series where a dozen famous former sports stars from different sports competed in various events.

She won over a range of Olympic Gold Medalist and World Champions after which the sport journalists decided that golf was a sport after all. End of Discussion!

On an International Level, she won the title Sports Woman of the Year in 2004.

A title she shares with Yelena Isenbayeva, Serena Williams and Lindsay Vonn.

Tiger Woods have won the male title twice.

So yes, Golf is a sport.

Under your first reason you indicate that chess, a game of sorry, or even playing video games could be considered a sport. During chess or other board games you have to physically indicate movement of a piece such as a pawn. You also have opponents and a set of rules. Same as a game of CSGO. These however are not considerable as sports.
