Baited and hooked: Not all golfers are in great physical condition. Neither are all baseball players (former Phillies first baseman John Kruk said so, famously, when confronted at a bar and criticized for his alcohol and nicotine consumption). Neither are all football players. I'm sorry, the Fridge was a load, that's all.

Of course baseball and football are sports, and so is golf. And it's a very serious sport, as is evident from this all important statistic. It may require a different set of physical skills, but it's still as physically demanding, in it's own way, as many other sports.

And if physical condition and heart rate levels equated to good sporting entertainment, we'd all be watching soccer. Thank goodness that's not the case.
