Coast to Coast
It's all about perspective in golf vs pool. It's much easier to take up pool and start playing vs golf. Almost anyone with 2 minutes of instruction from even a more experienced casual player can make a straight in ball or easy cut shot. Making contact with the ball and getting it airborne in golf is much much harder. However, I would say the difference is in becoming good at both games. With 5 swing lessons I got to where I was hitting the ball good enough to where I was shooting sub 80 rounds within 5 years. The progress to playing good or great pool is much slower because the knowledge required to play it at a high level is greater, and the adjustments between crappy mechanics and good mechanics and fundamentals has a lot less margin for error.
Right there’s no repertoire of thousands upon thousands of shots......and then there’s one pocket. Golf and chess combined.
I’d say looking at numbers of pros in both pool/snooker vs golf it’s pretty neck and neck to degree of difficulty of physical performance.
There’s much more “pool/snooker” pattern and shot knowledge in one game than golf has in its entirety. It goes up down left right further or less far or a combination...that’s it.
Each hole is only a few choices till it’s next rack and another 3-5 shots
Play a rack of rotation your 3/4 the way of a round of golf swings lol
