Persuasion Essay Imagine walking 4 miles with a 100 pound bag full of metal sticks, balls, tees, towels and other equipment. Anyone would have a good cardio workout for the day. Golf I believe is one of the most misunderstood sports of all time. A lot of people tell me, “Golf is not a sport.”
I began to take golf lessons in the 5th grade. At the time, I stereotyped all golfers as rich and lazy people with too much time on their hands, respecting them the least of all sportsmen. It was the cop-out sport that did not require much effort or physical ability, played by pretentious folk who wanted to appear sportsy without putting in the effort. Simply put, the game was unprofessional. Some of these convictions were based on my knowledge that it was one of the only sports in which players hit a stationary ball and walk, while some even had the audacity to smoke, drink, or drive golf carts during play.

The sport also involves the players training for many hours out on the course just like a basketball player would spend time on a basketball court. Though many spectators could argue that golf is a game rather than a sport, the two greatly differ.
