    Golf has to be one of the hardest sports I have ever taken part in.

    Everything has to be absolutely perfect to get the ball to go where you want it, otherwise you will slice/hook it or miss it all together

    Not like in cricket where it is possible not to time the ball and still get a four (like a nick) or a dropped catch.

    I'll second you there... However one thing you have going for you with golf is no opponent...

    But in cricket you have to hit a moving ball , while in golf you have to hit a sitting duck . Its not like the golf ball is coming towards you at 140 kmph and reverse swinging .It just lies there , waiting to be hit .

    Cricket is much harder .

    Yep, Golf is hard but its a beautiful game. Ive played a couple of times, and I must say I haven't faired too well.

    Id love to take it up seriously though, but I dont have the time or the money at this stage.

    Youve got to hit a smaller ball a lot further with an impliment with a surface area about 40 times smaller than a cricket bat...

    Chopra had his best finish on the USPGA Tour with a T8 finish at the Buick Open . Vijay won it with 23 under par.

    On the Japan PGA Tour, Jyoti had a T6 finish while Jeev Singh and Dinesh Chand finished T26

    ive been to a golf driving range once, and played once, it certainly is quite difficalt

    that said, it certainly has alot less different disiplines than cricket.
