NEVER! Honestly no one cares about golf in the UK. Its 10x worse in  the rest of Europe!!  America is the home and passion of golf!  You guys don't even realise how lucky it is to be a golfer in USA. It is no coincidence the golfchannel only lasted a few years in the UK.

Thats it, the debate is over we have had the definitive answer.

Alternatively we could all open the link to the KPMG assessment that Bingo provided a come to a balanced conclusion.

Ask Rory about this as he just quit their tour!! I would say more golf tournament fans in the U.S. actually play the game versus Euro.

Are you talking about absolute numbers or percentages? I agree with the former due to the sheer numbers of spectators in the U.S. but seriously doubt the latter.

Do you have a link to the news Rory quit ET? I tried to google it but came up with nothing outside of the false headlines from November.

I'm not quite sure how you measure passion.

Now if you asked who the more knowledgeable fans are, then Europe might take it.
