    How can you not watch it? It's the easiest sport to watch and how good some of the golfers are makes it even better.

    I'll watch the bigger tournaments for sure. I think how much you like playing the game has a lot to do with how much you like watching.

    I watch the masters and some others if Zach is doing well. It may sound boring but going to golf tournaments is a lot of fun.

    Yep....it'll put you right to sleep. I don't know how people can watch golf on TV. I can understand going and watching in person.....but on TV, no way.

    It's funny I think most people either really like watching golf or really dislike it. I however am in the middle, not my favorite but if friends are watching I can enjoy it (especially British Open).

    Golf is awesome on TV. I love it when the US Open is on TV from 9AM to 5PM, I never miss a minute of it.

    Honestly, once football season is over I watch the PGA Tour on a very regular basis. I don't watch every week but pretty much. The majors are as entertaining as any other sporting event.

    My question is how many of you that think it's stupid play it and understand the difficulty?

    I'm guessing very few.

    I definitely will watch golf on TV. :yes:

    I usually think golf announcers are pretty funny and I find it entertaining.

    If no good Mens CBB games are on, its the next best thing.
