Golf Voted to be the most boring sports on YouGov


Recommended Posts

As a golf fans, I have thousands of reasons loving it. But it seemingly most people wouldn't take any of them according to a recent YouGov poll. The poll indicates that 70% of respondents regard golf as boring and 52% think it exceedingly boring. Fortunately, American football followed golf as the second and Cricket and Darts tied third. Atheletics turned out to be the most stimulating one. So, What do you think?

VooGolf is a Chinese company that, as far as I can tell, sells an app that allows courses to track their play in real time. For the low low discount price of $2000/year! Of course if you want the upgr

Lol as a yank I have no idea what the difference is so was just poking fun at the UK bias of their "poll". Thanks to you I honest to God learned something in this thread, which I definitely didn't exp

I won't debate the fact that many non-golfers find golf boring. Even still, I'm wondering where they even found this sample. You can't even find most of those sports on TV and American Football is booming in popularity across the world.

 

The fact that "athletics" is even on this list is quite telling.

 

Cool pic though.

Personally I have always found Rugby Union much more boring than Rugby League.

Me too, but I was raised in a blue collar family, not a white collar family. Rugby League is played buy the "working class" while Rugby Union is more played by the University crowd.

Darts scores better than golf? This must have been a poll of non golfers and their watching preferences. I do think most non golfers would find it boring to watch on tv since they don't know or understand the nuances of the game. Before I started playing I couldn't understand why people would watch it.

There's a sports channel we have and they have darts on almost once a day. And it's Canadian, not a big darting nation

I went out and bought a set of darts about 4 years ago to play with some friends/family that played at the bar. Man is it a tough game. Hit two 180s so far!

Maybe we need announcers like basketball. If you were solely relying on listening to golf Nance/Faldo could easily put you to sleep.
