Golf Fitness - Is Fitness Training Necessary?

In a previous poll on this site, there was great debate on whether golf is a physically demanding sport. One responder suggested a way to increase the difficulty - "Well ... I know how hard it is to play a round of 18 holes in a day ... but as a non elite golfer ... I carry my own bag!".

But realistically, there are certain fitness requirements that enable a golfer to perform to their maximal ability. For example, the success of Tiger Woods has been partially attributed to his physical fitness training regimen. The 'shark' Greg Norman has also been known for his superior fitness over many of his opponents. There is enough evidence to suggest that fitness training and testing of golfers is warranted.
