    Golf has emerged as Britain´s dullest sport in a survey confirming the historic phrase wrongly attributed to Mark Twain that it is "a good walk spoiled".

    The YouGov poll published in Thursday´s edition of The Times found 70% of the 1,616 adults asked for their opinion adjudged golf to be the dullest  only 11% considered it to be exciting.

    Despite attracting sell out crowds at Wembley for NFL games American Football is considered the second dullest (59%) whilst after the 4-0 Ashes drubbing by Australia there is more bad news for English cricket as it is just behind in third with 58%.

    English golfer Matthew South gate who finished joint sixth in The British Open last year concurred with the findings and was not surprised athletics topped the poll in terms of being considered the least dull (28%) and 47% found it exciting.
