Boxing is by no means easy to play.

It isn't called the sweet science for nothing.

Obviously you've never played golf... it's one of the most frustrating games out there.

Yes. They all take extreme amounts of skill, but virtually no athletic ability to play.

Curling takes skill too. That doesn't mean it's a sport.

A game is like monopoly, are you really putting golf on that level? Let me put it this way, if golf is a game, then so is baseball.

Golf is the hardest sport to play besides hockey.

Ice skating is hard enough as is and trying to play hockey while skating would be crazy hard.
