In what seems to be a work of unchecked polemical zeal, Lewis claims that the game of golf is no more than an excuse for lazy rich people to say they are playing a sport. According to Lewis' research (if you can even call it that) the rich, on the whole, lack balance, dexterity, and coordination, and are disproportionately overweight when compared to the rest of the population. Logically then, golf, a game in which balance, dexterity, and coordination constitute a large percentage of the necessary skill-set, suits them perfectly! Bravo Mr. Lewis!
