>>>>>>There are several reasons: 1. Once "they" turn into flabby middle age and old farts, they can still dress in their expensive Polo shirts and get driven around in carts by caddies with minimal physical exertion
2. No sport takes up as much space as a golf course, so "they" throw their money into hogging up as much land as possible, showing their power, turning acres of land into exclusive expensive private clubs
3. This goes with #1 a bit -- there is so much time between the actual action and in the in-between time these guys can do what they are best at -- yap and yap and yap and come up with their conniving business deals
Oh, my Oldham styles for the average businessman -- SELF-CONFIDENT (Narcissistic), AGGRESSIVE (sadistic), and then some are SERIOUS (obsessive compulsive) and some are ADVENTUROUS (self-indulgent hedonists)
