I don't know about that. Baby boomers represent a very significant portion of the golfing crowd, and when they all start dying that will be half the golfers in the world no longer playingMarczO said:Well, I don't knwo if the baby boomers dieing off will have a huge effect on golf's popularity. It is a up and coming sport and will probably continue to grow. But the odds of it getting as popular as basketball or hockey, our pretty slim.
The biggest issue is that golf is such a big investment to even get started. If you want to learn to play basketball, you can buy a ball for 10 bucks, and go to the park and start learning. If you want to play golf, you have to buy clubs, balls, tees, etc. and then go and pay for a round of golf, which can be kind of expensive.ditchweed said:I think every man, woman, and child, are going to take-up the sport. I think it's going to be a family gathering at the course. I don't see too much popularity on t.v. but see it on the course alone. Retiring groupies, will make the everyday appearance. Instead of play cards, they are going to take the course.
