    I doubt it. Golfers may not be physically trained too hard, but thier skill is something that is honed and perfected far more than a cheerleading routine. Most golfers or at least good golfers are much older than most other athletes because they spend so long playing. There are a few young prodigies but when the average age of a professional golfer is 30.7 years. You know theres a reason for it. But for the sake of tranquility, this is just my opinion =)

    Though I don't like many cheerleaders and have little respect for certain individuals cause they match the disgusting stereotype, I would argue that cheerleading is a sport. It's competitive, there's competitions, and there's a lot of physical training as well.

    Cheerleading is extremely difficult. The basic requirement I believe is the ability to do a roundoff double back handspring. That is not as easy to pick up as hitting a ball with a golf club. [I've done them both before.] Plus, cheerleading involves synchronizing with your teammates to do all those flips and stances correctly. Furthermore, you have to choreograph your routine to music. And, it is also physically demanding in the sense you have to weigh X number of pounds consistently.

    Well though cheerleading is more physically demanding, all the synchronizing and stuff shouldn't be too hard, as long as you remember the routine and get into the music. Though having to constantly check your weight and what you eat must be a pain.

    Golf takes a hell lot of technique. I mean hitting a tiny ball into a tiny hole hundreds of yards away. If you are able to do those hole-in-ones then thats just freakin amazing.

    I always thought golf was what you used to get yourself a midday nap. That's what my dad and grandpa always did.

    you know what's racist?
    Seting up higher standars for asians at Berkley, saying asian students are smarter then students from other nationalities.
    This means, that asians will have to get higher grades, score higher on their SATs, and well .. pretty much be better then other students, to be counted as EQUAL.

    Golf is important.
    It gives hockey players something to do in the off season that uses some of the same muscles without blowing them out before camp.

    As far as the topic goes, if it's not in the contract, then there's nothing you can say. On the other hand (if I'm reading this right), it is a bitch when someone joins up and tosses your traditional unwritten rule aside... which in this case I guess is to whore yourself out to rich people who want to say they played a pro, all for the good of the game, of course. If the players have a problem, then it should be taken up with the tour manager, who could talk to the asian player's sponsors/handlers. You don't say shit like that to the press. XD


    Personally, if I had to play a game of golf with someone, I'd kind prefer they shut the fuck up and just play.

    I used to live with a girl who did cheerleading in her High School, and she said that it was way tougher than it looks. Which I'll believe.

    But I still reckon golf comes out on top in terms of difficulty.

    (Man, how I spelt "difficulty" just doesn't look right, but I can't work out what's wrong with it...)
