Not many people want to see the third place, 5 strokes behind, runner up, lining up a putt.  At least they still show the putt, right?

Sometimes, but usually they will only show say a 3rd place if say.. They stiff it from 150 or whatever.. Or hole a monsterous putt.

Not true. Your perceptions are coloring your memory.

When Tiger is playing well, or is in contention, they usually show all his shots, but in between, they always show shots of other players. As the final group nears the end, there will of course be more shots of fairway-walks, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Personally, I seem to remember this being a bigger issue right after he came back to competitive golf. He didn´t play very well at first, but they spent a lot of coverage on his game. As things have started to normalize, I don´t feel any excessive TV-time for Tiger. At least not more than you would expect for someone like him.

Guessing you are an American, which means your perceptions are colouring yours.
 

Or I should say your patriotism would make you oblivious to the fact that he is loved way too much on the PGA tour.

No, and patriotism has nothing to do with it.

 

He's loved too much for you, but like I said, many more people watch ONLY when Tiger is playing than dislike seeing him play. WAY more. From every country.

Strange comment. The guy is a once in a lifetime type of golfer.

I'm not sure I get it.  I'd say he's shown about as much as you would expect the most prolific golfer of this generation to be shown.  And when he's winning or dominant, they showcase him even more.  But they tend to do that with all of the winners in the final 3-5 holes of a round.

Turns out the new Tiger Woods is the old Tiger Woods.

Somebody create a thread about how long he will hold onto it now.

You win a nice pat on the head... which if you think about it is just as good as the millions of dollars, fame, and women Tiger has.

I watch the LPGA tour when its the only golf on tv, so I don't think I fit into the group of people who only watch golf because of Tiger.  But when Tiger is in contention, I want to see every shot he takes, minus the tap ins.  Just like when I went to see the Ravens play I paid attention to Ray Lewis on every play.

Come on, patriotism has nothing to do with wanting to watch the (maybe) GOAT when he is WINNING a golf tournament.  Though, it likely has something to do with NOT wanting to watch that.  I suppose you'd rather see if Luke Donald can eek out another top 10 finish?

Thank you.  I feel better knowing that I'm a slouch.  A tremendous slouch.

This and picking Harvard to win in the first round?! I'm going to have to go bet on horses or something tomorrow.

try using google, you can probably find out how the OWGR works in about 20 seconds. basically a weighted average of the best performance over the last two years. 

 

why do people get so irked about someone with no major ranking highly. Its simple math. What do people what a ranking system that only applies to those with a major?
