Brothers and Sisters,
Instead of watching any of the Open Sunday, I went and played. I don't think I would ever choose watching any part of a pro event (on television anyhow) over playing, but I was wondering to what extent I'm representative of the norm.
So, as with all things unsettled in the world, I thought I would see what the internet thought about it. Are there ever any circumstances where you would pass up on playing (and for the sake of discussion, I mean playing a regular round with your friends—not a tournament or outing or anything) in order to watch an event, either in person or on television?
I suppose I might pass up a round to go see a day of a major or the Ryder Cup/President's Cup in person, but I can't think of any golf I'd watch on TV that would be worth missing a day on the course, except maybe if Tiger gets four more majors and is contention for a fifth.
What say ye?
