I live in an area where most people's lives revolve around these two sports and, not to potentially sway right off the bat, I prefer tennis. It's a challenging, physical game with momentum and other intangibles that makes it great. Golf, well, golf is golf. You don't really need to be in any kind of shape, you pay obscene amounts of money to parade around in awful attire on these over-watered, green courses in a drought stricken land. Golf almost seems an irresponsible endeavor plus the Longpigs condemned it in their song 'Gangsters' ("And on the streets there's an advert real people pickled to the bone by the vultures of culture, golf, hold on to yourself") and their opinion has to hold a lot of weight.
