Many of the currently ranked top 16 aren't close to being my favorite players.

 

Watching Garrigus instead of Tiger or McIroy in the finals is like watching the Milwaukee Bucks in the finals of the NBA - who cares?

Seems like she's trying to become the new Jim Huber with this stuff.  Never a big fan of hers - mostly d/t the hard southern accent.

Well said - not sure how the PGA can make this event better - except to have the top players and eliminate the Sutherlands from the event.

I agree but what I'm saying if you limit it to 16 how do you pick the 16? A win on the PGA brings in more WGR points than a win on the European tour. But golf fans will watch regardless of who is in the finals. Golf fans enjoy watching 2 of the best players in the world clashing it out head to head.

Sorry for your pain. How do you suggest the organizers arrange for the people you like to win and people you don't like to lose? Maybe some sort of American Idol setup where there's an online vote and every time the guy who flops in the popularity content makes a birdie putt, Faldo and Randy Jackson come out onto the green drinking a Pepsi and tell him it doesn't count because they just weren't feeling it, man?

Stricker is a badass with the putter, that was sick.

If the final four turns out to be Lowry, Jacobson, Fernandez-Castano, and Piercy, the network might want to consider packing in the cameras Saturday night and find a figure skating exhibition to air on Sunday.

 

Not buying it.  Poulter, Kuchar, G-Mac, Mahan, and Webb are all great players and great to watch.  2 US Open Champs, all Ryder Cup players, and perennial invitees to the Tour Championship and Kapalua.  I think Sunday is looking pretty good.

Just caught a closeup of Kuchars putter...bettinardi.gif

 

As I own two - Big Ben and B6 I was very happy to see the putter logo featured on his putt.

Amen.

 

I'm actually quite surprised at a lot of the comments on here.  I get that the general public - the "casual fans" - might be less interested without Rory or Tiger, but of the people who love/care about golf enough to frequent a golf forum on the internet, I'd expect more that just love watching great golf played by any of the best golfers.

Maybe the people who are posting this stuff are just casual fans.  I think this is a very exciting tournament still.  The golfers in it are world class.

Quite possibly.  But, personally, I am a casual fan of a lot of things; tennis, the Olympics, Game of Thrones, yet the only internet forum I've joined is this one ... because I'm obsessed with golf.

 

I'd feel kinda weird going onto a tennis forum telling all of them that tennis sucks unless it's Federer vs. Djokovic.  Just doesn't seem like that's the place where I'd get much agreement.  Of course, based on this thread, I think I'm wrong. g1_wacko.gif

Tomorrow's gonna be great! I'm going to have to DVR it though. Got a 9am tee time. a1_smile.gif

Has been some really great golf, 4 of the worlds best are playing off tomorrow, I really don't see the problem with some of the comments on here.

 

(Conteriversial point with some on here)

Yeah lets have a WORLD championship, but americans need only enter.

 

I don't mind who wins, would be nice for the aussie to come home with it, but as long as the winner wins it and dosn't just not lose it, I will be happy.
