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?

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.

Definitely would rather watch Golf over Darts, Swimming, Cycling, Snooker, and even probably Baseball which isn't on there.

Hockey isn't on the list so I call shenanigans!

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 actually enjoy watching darts when it's on. It's hard to be THAT consistently good.

 

My favorite part:

ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY!!!!!!!

Although I love to play golf, watching anything other then the majors is akin to watching grass grow.

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.

Or like Robin Williams said soccer announcers for golf.

Talking about pure entertainment. That would be right up with Bob Barker beating the crap out of Happy Gilmore.
