I am very proud to be associated with the great game of golf.  

As an instructor, I get to meet new students every week, and they are by far the nicest group of people I would ever wish to meet.  In general, golfers are really great human beings, and it is an honor and a privilege to teach this great game each and every week.  Below are some reasons golf is the greatest game and is so far ahead of any other sport.   Don’t quit reading until you see the last one!

 I found this article by Amit Ranjan, Director of Operations at SlideShare, to be very entertaining.

Ranjan starts by saying he is not intending to insult fans of basketball, football, or baseball. He is just listing his observances when wondering why golf is so popular, and even non-golfers watch it on TV.  #2 is humorous, and #17 highlights the ultimate fairness of the game.

The following is not intended to offend fans of tennis, basketball, football or baseball. It is, rather, an attempt to put everything in it’s proper perspective. Ever wonder why golf is growing in popularity and why people who don’t even play go to tournaments or watch it on TV? 

The following truisms may shed some light:

  1. Golf is an honorable game, with the overwhelming majority of players being honorable people who don’t need referees.

  2. Golfers don’t have some of their players in jail every week.

  3. Golfers don’t kick dirt on or throw bottles at other people.

  4. Professional golfers are paid in direct proportion to how well they play.

  5. Golfers don’t get per diem and two seats on a charter flight when they travel between tournaments.

  6. Golfers don’t hold out for more money or demand new contracts because of another player’s deal.

  7. Professional golfers don’t demand that the taxpayers pay for the courses on which they play.

  8. When golfers make a mistake, nobody is there to cover for them or back them.

  9. The PGA raises more money for charity in 1 year than the NFL does in 2

  10. You can watch the best golfers in the world up close, at any tournament, including the majors, all day every day for $25 or $30.

  11. Even in the nose bleed section, a ticket to the Super Bowl will cost you over $300 – or $1,000 from a scalper!

  12. You can bring a picnic lunch to the tournament golf course, watch the best in the world and not spend a small fortune on food and drink.
