Golf is less in need of being in the Olympics than any other sport. It already has a global world championship in July every year and anyone can try to qualify to play in it.

In general, I agree with B-Tuck. But would golfers have to wear those cornball national costumes while they play?

TIGER vs. ROGER - In 2008 Tiger will be trying to win the PGA championship for the 2nd year in a row. Roger Federer in 2008 will try to win the Australian open for the 3rd year in a row, he will also be trying to win the U.S. Open for the 5th year in a row, and WIMBLEDON for the 6th year in a row. And Golfers thought Tiger was dominant on grass? In 2008 if Roger wins 3 out of 4 majors like he did in 2006 and 2007 he will be the all time MAJORS LEADER in his sport passing Pete Sampras record of 14. TIGER CAN'T he still needs 6 more to pass Jack N. record of 18. In the history of Golf and Tennis that have 4 majors every year only 1 man has won 3 out of 4 majors all in the same year 3 times. It's not Tiger his name is ROGER FEDERER. Oh ya Roger is only 26 and Tiger is 31.

GOLF vs. TENNIS - Both have 4 majors every year. Play 4 rounds of golf and you can win a golf majors. Play 7 rounds of tennis and you can win a tennis major. Have a bad round of golf? DON'T WORRY your total scores are added so nobody gets eliminated. Have a bad round of tennis and YOUR OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT. A tennis ball can move over 140-mph and you have to swing and move your feet in all directions to hit it. A golf ball moves at 0-mph and you are practically standing still before you hit it. Golf is played on grass. Tennis is played on grass, clay, hardcourt, and synthetic carpet. When tennis player's get to old and out of shape to play tennis, a lot of them play golf. When Golfer's get to old and out of shape to play Golf THEY DON'T PLAY TENNIS. Tiger's match play record as a pro is not great. If he played majors in a 7 round match play elimination format against the best 128 in the world he would not have as many majors today.

You just have to laugh at the arbitrary assignment of "sport" while golf is left out. They have sports out here in the olympics like curling where you push on ice and try to get your block in the center...granted that probably takes a lot of skill but golf is by far the most skill intensive game I have ever witnessed.

I can not call golf a pure atheletic game.Its more of a skill.But i think Olympic Committee has betrayed the spirit of the Olympics by their decision of eliminating golf from the list.i heard they are about to add women boxing to the content.its not such a good idea.Lets see because i know there has a wider audience for golf always.:)

The EB agreed to the introduction of three women’s events. The current 11 men’s boxing events will be replaced by 10 men’s and three women’s events, representing an additional two boxing events on the programme. The total number of boxers remains unchanged. The decision was a recognition that women’s boxing has made substantial progress in universality and technical quality of the athletes since the EB last considered the discipline in 2005.

In the United States, the number of people who play golf 25 times or more per year decreased from 6.9 million in 2000 to 4.6 million in 2005,[22] according to the National Golf Foundation. The NGF reported that the number who played golf at all decreased from 30 to 26 million over the same period.

Everyone who doesn't play golf thinks it's easy, and takes no effort.It's the hardest sport in the world.but i have a question that do golfers lift weights or do any specific exercises to improve their game?i am really sad to read your post,because i am a huge fan of golf. :(
