I Can Play Wii Golf

Born Loser 06-17-09
I have a theory about why comic strip creators choose golf as the sport of choice. Yes, originally it was because their authors played golf so they could milk golf stories for all their worth and while I do believe Chip plays golf, I think golf stays as the sport of choice because it's easier to draw. You don't have to draw your character in shorts or a helmet or skating on ice or with a tennis racket. All you really need to draw is a golf club. It's also a sport that you can play alone so you can have a three panel soliloquy from your main character.

I also think they choose golf to feel superior to their readers because I have no idea what today's strips means.
