Golf isn't an athletic event ....the swing last a few seconds ...and you do that 35-40 times a round
 

 

I agree it has a athletic component or element to it

So can anyone tell me how often jack Nicklaus, ben hogan and Sam sneed went to the gym ?

It's a game of skill not athletic prowess....yes training can assist

But the majority of the game is based on skill

On topic, I think it will take Tiger around 6 months to get back into contention at the majors. His current swing looks really good.

Your definition of athletic is waaaaaaaay too narrow Dave. Hitting hundreds of balls and walking miles day after day is a serious physical challenge.

The gym is not the definition of an athletic activity.

To equate a visit to the loo to hours of physical practice and walking for 5 hours day after day is silly.

Probably not wise to compare guys that played the game eons ago to the modern player.

 

Did AFL players spend much time in the gym in the 50's Dave?

Did cricketers spend much time in the gym even 15 years ago?

 

Sports evolve 

 

I imagine that many of the top 100 Tour players have a gym regime these days.

They may not all be looking to stack on pounds, but they'd certainly be looking to increase their endurance, flexibility and strength.

He is looking at Masters to be in prime so about spot on!

Ok so you really think golf is only an athletic prowess sport

Angel Carbera would argue otherwise

So would mark Omera

Plenty of non athletes play darn fine golf
