    I think all golfers should be taxed like this. Maybe then they would quit playing that dumb game and it wont take up time that they could be showing infomercials every weekend.

    Honestly how anybody can watch more than 2 minutes of golf and not fall asleep is beyond me..... heck I fall asleep playing it, lol

    ............. but then again a lot of people say that about NASCAR too..... Look a left turn, and another left turn.... oh and here comes a left turn! :D

    My family has always builds mini-golf courses for everyone to play on during family reunions. That said, I've never played a round of golf elsewhere. ;)

    I love both golf, and nascar. I feel the same way as you do in regards to falling asleep about NBA basketball, NFL football, and MLB. You don't find nascar boring, because you know the sport very well, like me. I follow the local tracks, and have since I was a kid, so anything to do with stock car racing interests me. I was an avid golfer in my youth, and completely respect what the pros can do, so maybe that's why I enjoy watching it? Basketball, and football are not as big up here, and baseball interest has fallen off the table here, so I have zero interest in them. I will watch NFL football every week, but the constant running of the ball for a yard here, and a yard there bores me, lol. Canadian football has way more action, and excitement with the one less down. Up here, it's all about the hockey.

    Phil has complained a lot about having to pay high taxes on his earnings, properties etc. If he lived in a Scandinavian or European country he'd probably have an aneurysm due to the tax levels. I totally disagree with him. He's well overpaid even after the taxes are taken out. I am still a fan of his golf game no matter what his politics are. I'm glad that he turned his career around the past few years (in terms of finally winning majors) because he is good for the game. His personality is very marketable.
