    As for NASCAR being boring, yea there are some tracks where its quite boring, take Fontana (California Speedway, most boring race to watch IMO) but go to Bristol, Darlington, Talladega where there is constant action, passes, wrecks, and just chaos that I find myself loving every second of it.
    Hahaha, I agree and no need to explain

    Comparing the two was sort of my point - that you can take any two sports that are unrelated - only that non-fans (un-fans?) say they're "boring" and/or "pointless" - and come up with abstractions to compare them (including saying one is better than the other).

    Plus I love the standard fan responses - for Soccer: "it's has to be good because it's popular all over the world" - really who cares if only 5 people like it - if *you* do that all that counts!

    Hell, every sport has pretty varied dynamics - Football, Golf, NASCAR, F1, Soccer, Hunting, Surfing, etc., etc.

I've had probably 2 dozen lessons, and it helps, also if you're serious at all about golf I would suggest reading the book "Golf Is Not A Game of Perfect" by Sports Psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella. After reading that book I dropped 8 strokes off my average, and that is no exaggeration. It helps with arguably the most important aspect of golf, the mental side.
    I'm sure it would - I know so little, I wouldn't even have to go through the normal "unlearning" process. Thanks for the book recommendation too - I'm always looking for stuff for the golf fanatics in the family!

    Always glad to be helpful, I'm telling you you or anyone in this forum who is serious about golf should give that book a good read or two, it will help tremendously.
