Golf Australia Express : Issue 3
By Damian Shutie VIEW THE O K, so it’s pretty clear we’ve got our backs up this week. And it’s all because of a recent Quirkology survey called ‘The Sexiest Sport Experiment’. Basically, more than 6000 people of both sexes were asked to indicate what sports made them attracted to members of the opposite sex. Surprise, surprise golf sat right down the bottom of both lists. It’s official: golf is not sexy. Apparently men surveyed even found women who row a freaking boat—such as Lay Down Sally—sexier than female golfers. You can see why we’re a little wound up in here. But I care not what these muppets think, golf is sexy. And here’s the proof. Golf has many sexy things about it. Sure, not every one of us out on course is a Greek Adonis or Hollywood starlet, but sexy entails much more than looks alone. Having said that, golfers these days are a far cry sexier in the traditional sense than they used to be—have you seen the LET or LPGA tours lately? Oh, mama. The men, too, are projecting a similar sexy image on their tours. No, I’m not talking about the Craigs in Parry or Stadler, but observe the swarm of adoring fans following the likes of Camilo Villegas, Dustin Johnson, and Rickie Fowler. These guys are real athletes, with strong sinewy, physiques and they’re showing golf to be in direct contrast to that the image presented in that bloody survey. Fair enough golfers have been criticised in the past for wearing drab, boring and unflattering attire. And sure, some still do. But in general, golf clothes are now sexy— enough to be worn away from the course, too. I’d take my wife in a sexy golf outfit over a sexy hiking outfit— which by the way received twice as many votes as golf—any day of the week. For the record, according to the study women found “climbers” (apparently a sport) the sexiest of us all, which only verifies what I already thought: they truly think we’re monkeys and we drive them bananas.
