I was just curious if anyone had a " LEAST FAVORITE " golf commentator?

I can't stand Johnny Miller. He's annoying as :censored: , very negative, and it seems like every chance he gets, he talks about himself.

I have a few others that are on my list that in some way irritate me and I will put these names in a poll (in no particular order).

Let me know your thoughts!!

Everyone h ave a safe & wonderful 4th of July , 2014!!!

A pampas ass? That would be what, some kind of Argentinian mule? Personally I don't find Faldo especially pompous, his TV persona is surprisingly OK considering how notoriously difficult a personality he had as a player.

I'm on the fence about Faldo, I think he's gotten a little better in recent months...I didn't even think about Berman, but agreed, definitely annoying (he can stick his "back, back, back" up his a$$, a$$, a$$ LOL)

Is there any possible way to add Tom Abbott, Paul Azinger, Chris Berman, Nick Faldo, David Feherty, Rich Lerner, Gary Koch, Peter Jacobsen, and Gary McCord to the poll? It'd be a more accurate representation  of whom the community dislikes the most.

Really..? When I've watched the Euro tour, I liked the way they announced the game. Dougie, can't recall his last name, seemed like a good announcer. Do have tons of commercials during a tournament ..?

No not really Hammer, the number if commercials is no more or less than usual. But I guess each to their own when it comes to commentating. Personally I can't stand the Argentinian Donkey and Monty! :) Regards Mailman

None of them bother me, I'm more focused on the golf.

It is not even close for me, Brandel Chamblee.  He is a puke.  If Bob Costas was on with him, it would be exponential pukes.  I want whoever is announcing with them to just punch them in the face.

Miller is my favorite, and not just on that list.  I like his honesty and knowledge of the game.  Always liked Peter Alliss too.  Judy Rankin does a professional job.

Chamblee is the least liked on that list.  Not too fond of Faldo either.

I guess I don't watch enough golf these days though, because I wouldn't know Tripp Isenhour if I bumped into him.

John Miller is my favorite also. Tells it like it is.

My least favorite is Chris Berman. Let him do something other than golf, I don't understand how he ever landed a links gig.

Anybody who is too "careful". Kelly Tilghman is my least favourite. Ever since she made that remark about Woods way back, she has been way too soft and fake.

BERMAN is the worst. Why they let that in front of a camera is beyond me

    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
