Athlete:

A person possessing the natural or acquired traits, such as strength, agility, and endurance, that are necessary for physical exercise or sports, especially those performed in competitive contexts.

(Individual Sports & Recreations / Athletics (Track & Field)) a person trained to compete in sports or exercises involving physical strength, speed, or endurance

a person who has a natural aptitude for physical activities

(Individual Sports & Recreations / Athletics (Track & Field)) Chiefly Brit a competitor in track and field events

Tiger Woods is most likely in the best physical condition of all the golfers on the pro tour but golfing does not require much athletic skills. It is more of a skill than anything else. How much strength, speed and endurance is needed to play golf compared to basketball, hockey, gymnastics and many more athletic ventures? Tennis, racquetball and even badminton are more athletic in nature than golf. Golf falls more in the lines of bowling, darts and maybe the closest comparison is the biathlon which combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting.
