SI omits golfers from 'Fittest 50,' so here they are

RSS

While cruising around the interwebs on Monday, we came across a Sports Illustrated feature titled "Fittest 50," highlighting the 50 fittest men and women of the sports world.

While it's hard to argue with anyone they included in the list, there was one glaring omission, no golfers made the cut.

In an era of golf where fitness has become more important than ever to a player's success, it's not hard to find several players who fit the criteria SI used when choosing the athletes - strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility and skill. 

So we did their job for them and rounded up plenty of golfers who could've been included, starting with a couple of world No. 3's in Rory McIlroy and Lexi Thompson. Click here or on the image below to see all of the world's fittest pro golfers.
