However, many people do not agree with this view. Opponents pointed out that: "kolven" is a kind of indoor sports, but golf is an outdoor sports, this is the most fundamental and essential difference between the two! Moreover, "kolven" campaign to use than the average golf ball large, golf club than the heavy, more important is that the sport is not used by the rod angle!
