Golf, the forgotten summer sport...

Guest posting brought to you by guest poster Cody Doyle

PGA golf is an often over looked sport. golf doesn’t have the action appeal of football with large guys slamming into each other, and although it requires significant finesse golf is often over shadowed by the graceful agility of college and professional basketball. Putting a tiny white ball in a slightly larger hole five hundred plus yards down a winding, weaving fairway loaded with water hazards and sand bunkers, using a light, iron rod is one of the most difficult feats in all of sports. Just ask anyone who has ever played the game before. Although not as inherently athletic as players of other sports, golfers are extremely skilled athletes in their craft. Sitting down on a lazy weekend afternoon and tuning into a few hours of PGA golf is an excellent way to spend your free time.

Everybody knows about the ability and the exploits of Tiger Woods, who is one of if not THE most recognizable professional athlete in the world. Tiger is attempting to make a comeback after his latest personal life problems and everyone is tuning in to see it. I personally prefer to follow Phil Mickelson who seems more of a “down home” kind of guy who thinks family is more important than anything else. It seems most people have moved on to cheering for Phil lately probably due to this feeling. I love watching golf on the best cable tv packages in Georgia, in my opinion.
