If snooker is not athletic enough for you then try golf Kappa
There are 2 sport I cant understand, one is golf and other is curling
Is Golf a sport? I always looked at it as a leisure activity that doesn't really involve any skill. More boring than chess.

Golf is one of the hardest sports I've ever played and I've pretty much played all sports to decent level. I'd place snooker very high on the list also. Put it this way, I find Golf harder than Karting. I got to a 12 handicap in golf and just couldn't get any better. Karting just comes easier to me although more time in sim racing and plenty of karting in my early years probably help that.

I don't think the majority would question that it takes skill, just it doesn't strike me as something requiring any sort of athletic prowess... I mean, one glance in the club house at the golf clubs I've been to reveals middle aged men of a, how shall we say, more rotund physique....

I suppose it comes down to where the line between game/competition and sport is drawn.

For example what makes darts a sport and tiddlywinks a game?

Thats just down to the level that you are seeing. Watch professional Golf and they are pretty much all athletes, if they are not on the course/range they are in the gym . Your local golf clubs will have the full range. Just like my local Kart track (buckmore) or my local sunday league football teams. They both have a huge amount of 'round' people as you call it. Being fit and athletic at the top level of sport generally gives you an advantage. F1, Football, Golf, Tennis ect is all the same. So at the top level, they are in shape and fit.

:o After all their bad history you think Cyril will go to RB?

I’ve never heard it said RB are going to open an engine plant either. Their desire is to run & maintain Honda PUs, not design & develop new ones

I am sure Marco has read the adage "better have him in your tent peeing out, than outside peeing in"
Honda have said it will not be making engines, so some sort of new establishment has to be set up, and Cyrol has been there done that. Why not?
