For 27 minutes of Golf Central last night, I still had no clue who was leading the Tournament. No-Tah as Rolfing likes to say put it best when he stated; " This is not world class and Tiger would admit it". Gannon had a great response to the Tiger impromptu speech in the parking lot, "I do not understand that last statement and I have never heard of an athlete using those words".      I thought Brandel was going to hand Kelly "Let's hang 'em" " Tighlman a hanky. 
Sorry, I had to amend my list and make mention of Steve Sands. How that one slipped by is unknown. Seems as though he is falling in line as yet another color man with no golfing knowledge, who constantly "fishes" for answers to rhetorical questions.     Ok, I'm done.
See my review of the course in the Golf Talk Forum, for those looking for something new in the Orlando area. You guys/gals are spoiled over there, that's for sure!
Update: This is a brand new track right behind the existing Champions Gate Complex. The best way to get to it: From I-4, Go North on Hwy # 27 4-5 miles until you get to Bella Citra Rd. You have to turn right and then go about 1.5 miles and look quickly right for the Lennar Homes entrance.   There is no Clubhouse at this time, but the Grand opening was this past weekend. Obviously, the greens are pristine and the remainder of the course looks great for this time of year...
It would be great IF the golf networks would realize that the "golfers" are the entertainment. Frank Chirkinian, Ebersol(NBC), Schenkel, Mckay, Longhurst, Wright, and Summeral i.e. knew this, and that is why I would agree that the Euro talking heads are better. The never ending talking before, during and long after a players' shot really wears a viewer out. With today's technology, did you know it's possible to actually hear the players/caddies talk? LOL  Who needs to know...
I 've always enjoyed saying from time to time; " Well, there's another Oral Roberts".... Referring to the great healer himself after a heeled effort.
The Copperhead Course can be demoralizing! I know for a fact as a former Staff member at the "Brook. The rough is especially brutal where the players walk off the green. For sure, it has been wet lately in this part of the world. I posted a 72 from the back at The Bayou Club on Sunday.    Cheers! 
Understanding that instruction has a place in the game, I was posting in part to the real need for high speed video, GolfTech stats, i.e. I totally agree that pounding balls at a range is not productive if the golfer has no clue. However, since the average swing takes place in less than 4 seconds let's say, is it counterproductive to break it down in to 450 positions? Even though I have a lower Handicap, experience has proven that a majority of people respond better to...
Being an avid golfer for 39 years, I learned with persimmon woods and blades and Hogans' Fundamentals. Fast forward to 2014 and the monumental leaps in club/ball technology, I would postulate that the modern game does not need the incremental tuning brought about by hours of video study, position breakdown, blah blah.   If a golfer hit a straight ball in the 70's it was by accident, not design. A balata ball preferred by a better player made side spin at a rate which...
If Tiger spent the last 3 months chipping/putting, then one has to wonder what influence Sean Foley had on that, to have performed so poorly. Tiger of the past could salvage a bad score and get by, not any more.    "How", is it that a golfer with Woods' past and success, cannot figure out a way to play golf? Was the 2000 season and others just smoke and mirrors? Yes, the results were there, but was Tiger just a shell that Butch Harmon filled? It's interesting that Earl...
