The OP did not play with a “Tiger Mom”. Anyone that has read the book knows that a Tiger Mom would not let their child play golf let alone sports. Amy Chua says as much. She was not very happy when Lulu picked up tennis and only tolerated it because there had been some relative Chinese success in the sport. Golf would be a big no no for a Tiger Mom.

Good point

Although given the success of some Chinese LPGA Tour Pros maybe golf would make the cut of tolerable activities (but ONLY if there is extra spare time after the necessities are met)

This is a vague generalization, but I feel a lot of the kids I see playing or at the range in the SF Area are asian kids. Too many have already beat the path of phenom musician. When I was in HS, asians had saturated badmintion only. I feel as time goes on, the parents push them towards other non-contact, not overly physically exerting sports (football etc.).

Makes sense

Also, demographically 1/3 of SF are Asian
