I don't like how it drives. Too much car noise, and the handling is weak.

Golf exists for "professionals" to wiggle their butts at the ladies. The lack of a time limit changes things from suspense to boring.

There used to be a TV commercial for "Full contact golf". Golfers had to face a defensive rush, so there was a time limit. Now that would make it more exciting.

Really? I always thought the Golf was a pretty quiet ride, though the handling can be a bit flabby.

Golf is really fun to play, but not so much fun to watch.

This.
Mostly.
Until I had back surgery, I really loved playing golf. I do like watching it, though it's more like wallpaper than active watching. Still, if you've played the game for any length of time, you quickly recognize the talent of the professionals. For instance, I was watching yesterday's highlights and was knocked-out by Ryan Palmer's long, meandering putt for birdie.

Wasn't the Golf once known as the Rabbit just a few years back?
