Pure strength/weakness is only relative to lifting weights, from the way the premise is stated.
Sure. Golfers wouldn’t WANT to be “strong” in that manner. Professional golfers need core strength, flexibility, etc to be successful and hit a ball with consistency, accuracy, and for YEARS. Pure weightlifting wouldn’t benefit them and would actually shorten their careers due to INFLEXIBILITY.
I was a hooper in college, and semi-professionally, and although we lifted weights, we did specific lifts that benefitted us in our sport. We didn’t “max” like football lineman, whose training was FAR different than ours.
So what? A golfer isn’t as “strong” as a Pro weightlifter, or even an offensive lineman in football, who cares? It wouldn’t benefit them in ANY way to search for “strength” above all else.
I know one thing, “strong” guys can’t do much more than lift weights.... Can’t hoop, can’t golf, can’t throw a ball, can’t play volleyball, nothing, because their builds prevent them from doing anything “athletic”....

I'm going to treat this question seriously just in case the OP is not simply trolling (though I believe he is). Golf requires gazelle-like strength, not elephantine brute force and has similarities to many other athletic endeavors.
NHL hockey players, NFL kickers, ballet dancers, soccer players, javelin throwers, tennis players etc all use some form of coil, post and release that we see in top level golf swings. None of them look like power lifters. In face large muscle mass without speed through the kinetic chain is less athletic and less useful than the golf swing. Good for moving refrigerators and grunting at a mirror at the gym. No good for moving like an athlete.

Ketchup on hot dogs is the only way.

Let’s instead, talk about something that actually has some merit.

Ketchup doesn’t belong on a hot dog. Change my mind.

You can stop making ketchup and I would be fine with that.

Sauerkraut, onions, and spicy mustard for my hot dogs.

That was a great thread. Maybe some of us need to search before making similar topics. Being a weight lifter isn’t really a huge sports movement like golf. Nor does it require amazing dexterity and coordination. Basically you lift all day long and eat super healthy. Than just let nature take its course. Where playing golf at the highest levels is just a gift that only an extremely small group can understand. Those guys and gals are really that talented. And would probably succeed at many other sports activities as well. Now for high caps like me it’s not so much an athletic sport. It’s more survival and hoping that weeks tip will at least last a few holes. Boy would I love too have a pros game for at least 9 holes. Experiencing what they feel on every shot
