I would love it if they could track the ball flight. What they could do when your watching is your entire tv screen has the view of the ball flight and in the corner of the tv they could put a box there and have it following the ball in the air like the traditional way. For example it could kinda be like when you are watching tv and you watch one channel and then have another channel down in the corner.... forgot what that was called.
It's called XBOX 360. Just kidding, PIP? (picture in picture?) I am all in favor of seeing the flight of the ball and protracer is pretty cool but what I would be concerned about is the telecasts would be tricked up and watching a golf event would turn into some sort of video game like broadcast. I'm not some big traditionalist that is afraid of change but I can just see network execs sitting there with a focus groups of Jersey Shore rejects trying to figure out how to use the technology to capture this "up and coming" target audience. I realize I am overstating this a bit but you can see where adding "enhanced" features of a broadcast can lead. One of the appeals of televised golf for me is it's the opposite of a NFL broadcast where everything is the greatest thing ever in the history of Western Civilization therefore must be screamed out to make sure you didn't miss it. Just saying.
I know what you're saying there...but I'm just talking about a camera angle and position.
I don't want golf on TV to become like football for sure....I simply just want some landscape in the shot so I know what the dang ball did! It just seems so simple to me.
