Which was bigger?

So who watched the super bowl this year?  Seems like pretty much everyone does but did you notice the attendance records at the Phoenix open during super bowl weekend?  Saturday’s round broke the single day attendance record for a golf event…200,000!!!  And although the viewing audience is way bigger for the super bowl, I’ve heard ratings were down compared to previous years. So is golf on the rise and football on the decline?  I guess we shall see.  For me being a huge golf fan who tries to watch every weekend, it’s no surprise to see golf on the rise.   Call me crazy but for me nothing is more exciting in sports than watching a final round where the leaders are all within a couple strokes with 3-4 holes to play.
