35 is right. Golf wears you down fast as shit. And you can't say that it's not intense if you've never played a round. I challenge you all to go to your local course and play 9 holes without breaking a sweat. Also bonus points to the person who doesn't get yelled at by the old fart behind them on the course.
I've been playing golf for 11 years and have worked at a course for nine. From all of my experiences doing both, you're going to sweat. Unless of course you take a golf cart. I dare anyone saying it's not intense to WALK a full 18 hole round and tell me you didn't sweat or aren't at least a little tired... Walking while playing golf is one of the best core workouts a person can get. Especially when you carry your bag.
I honestly believe that golf shouldn't be considered as a sport unless the 'player' is walking their course while playing. It does challenge you mentally, yeah, but it's not as physically taxing as other sports when you're in a golf cart. But this is coming from a horseback rider (which, by the way, is actually incredibly physically and mentally taxing, especially if you don't condition yourself with other exercises. At least with the discipline that I practice.) so I suppose my opinion could be considered illegitimate.
Lol, I've done worse but that's still funny. Ydi, cause golf isn't intense enough for more than a basic high five.
