Golf gets pretty big ratings, even the smaller tournaments get quite a few eyes. Golf also is a "4 day" event, starts on Thurs, goes to Sunday for a lot of tournaments. Not surprised it gets the ratings it does.

I think it's because a lot of people play golf, and it's easy to aspire/dream that "hey I just have to work on my game and I have a chance at the pros!" Okay, that's simplistic, but it isn't like a team sport where you have to be drafted, you can play a lot and try and work your way to the "qualification" tourneys if you get good enough (but have to be very good just to get a sniff of qualification tourney)
