Golf not sexy? Sez who?
Hat tip to The Golf Girl for bringing my attention to this farce of a factoid: a recent survey found that women think golf is the “least sexy” sport men could play.
One Dr. Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire (the UK version of Dr. Phil, if that tells you anything) surveyed 6,000 adults and explains: “First, golfers don’t have to be fit. Second, they keep their clothes on while playing. And third, they frequently wear plaid and Pringle jumpers.”
Far from explaining the rationale, these points have me scratching my head. Nudity has nothing to do with anything?by that standard, the sexiest sport should be naked beach volleyball, and yet ‘rock climbing’ takes first prize.
And what the hell is a Pringle jumper?
I’m sorry, Dr. Wiseman and the 6,000 people you surveyed?you have it all wrong. Golf is dead sexy. Luke Donald. Camilo Villegas. Retief Goosen. My husband after a 300-yard drive. Hotties, every one. Meanwhile, how many rock climbers can you name? Oh yeah, that’s right. None.
And it’s not just the women among this group of 6000 that have questionable taste. The men, apparently, think that the most attractive sport a woman can participate in is aerobics. Aerobics?is that technically even a sport? I don’t think it qualified as a sport even in 1982, age of leg warmers, head bands, and Jane “feel the burn” Fonda. I know way too many guys who go gaga over Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis, and Sophie Sandolo to believe this aerobics nonsense for even a second.
Clearly those aerobicizers haven’t checked out this spread from Golf.com?the sexiest women golfers. If they had, I guarantee they’d be singing a different tune.

Sexy? I'll take Formula One racing car drivers, followed by tennis players. Naked beach volley ball players? In UK climate?
You can buy one of those Nick Faldo retro Pringle jumpers (usually
V-neck with diamond pattern)on e-bay for a couple of dollars. You know you want one.
Aerobics - I know the programme these men are watching! It involves half a dozen scantily clad fit Aussie beauties. The men, of course, turn the soundtrack off and watch mesmerised. It's the statistics they are following. Like they do with Paula Creamer.
Wendy - I'm off to eBay to look for a Nick Faldo sweater...it's kinda chilly today here in Florida - but I'm staying warm contemplating Natalie and Paula's "statistics"! :)
The retro look on girls is fine, however. There's a rather fetching pink version for Paula.
Golf is really the only time when I really do care about what I'm wearing, and how I look.
