Who is playing this Sunday?

17 posts in this topic

With The Open going on right now I'm hoping for a couple big names up top for Sunday, with Tiger being in the last group and playing well. That way I can get out and play a round and hopefully the course will be fairly uninhabited with everyone watching Golf instead of playing. Am I alone in this or anyone else have a similar idea?

Most golfers don't watch majors. The course will be about as full as it is normally. Some others might DVR it, but they're not giving up their once-a-week chance to play.

Yes. Sometimes, I catch a glimpse of the Golf Channel at golf course restaurants.

I am!

6:45am both Saturday and Sunday, maybe some afternoon rounds too.

I heard there are some groups playing over in Scotland and some little sheep track too.  Apparently they're doing a 4 day tournament.

I'm playing at noon at a new course for me.  I will watch until it is time to leave.

8:15 tee time. We'll be watching it in the clubhouse before 12:30.... FWIW, I will always opt to play golf, over watching golf though. :-)

The head pro at the course I used to frequent said their busiest weekends corresponded with the majors. I guess watching golf makes a lot of people want to play that otherwise wouldn't. I know I want to play when I watch it on TV.

Golf as a spectator sport should be played at double speed on the tv. Then the announcers would appear to be speaking normally. :-)

I'll play my usual 630am tee time and be finished by 930'ish.........A DVR is a beautiful thing... I'll watch the Open on a delay and FF past the parts I don't want to see.

I'm a bit surprised that every household doesn't have a DVR by now........

Live TV??  LOL....what's that?

I have plans on playing Sunday afternoon around 3:30, but only because that's our normal time, nothing to do with the Open.

There was a big party of people watching the open. Never saw that many people converging on the course before. The driving range was extremely crowded.

The course was pretty much wide open as everyone was watching the open.

I agree, but it's funny though how many people I know who *must* watch sports live. Maybe they're afraid of spoilers?

I've grown to accustomed to life with DVR in relation to sports that I never lead with "Did you hear about Phil winning the Open?"  Instead it is "Have you caught up on the Open yet?"

Nothing worse than a spoiler.
