Golf is Dying in America (14 Photos)

Like playing golf? Then you’re in a shrinking minority in America, where fewer people are willing to play a sport that’s seen as time-consuming and expensive, the Washington Post reports. Not only that, its traditionalism seems contrary to today’s lifestyle of fitness classes, extreme races, and diddling on smartphones. Even all-time great golfer Jack Nicklaus has doubts: “I’d like to play a game that can take place in three hours,” he tells CNN. “I’d quite like to play a game that I can get some reasonable gratification out of very quickly – and something that is not going to cost me an arm and a leg.” Americans seem to agree, as sales of golf clothes and clubs decline, women and minorities show less interest, and people aged 18 to 30 play 35% less often than they did 10 years ago.
