More correctly, what makes a golfer an athlete. Golf's had an image for yonks that it's a game played by chubby chippers. John Daly, Craig Parry, Craig Stadler and the like haven't done much to alter that persona over the years. Tiger Woods started the beefed-up golfer trend and few could argue he's an athlete in every sense. We've now got guys like Camilo Villegas and Dustin Johnson leading the charge for athletic physiques on Tour. But do today's golfers really need to look like footballers? As Pettersson said on Sunday: "We're not running marathons; we're just walking 18 holes. It's great to be fit and everything, but I feel like I'm fit enough to get around 18 holes." Gym fit is one thing. Golf fit is quite another. This is the least discriminating sport of all and anyone can play it. Pettersson's proof of that.
