I admit to both, but surprised how many times I use the little tips and tricks they give...just this morning I holed in a chip because Mike Breed showed me how!
I do this drill often:
WOW! I'm just the opposite - I get Breed but could strangle Hall...
I just watch Win
(no, I learn very little, the lessons are trite and canned and a bit patronizing in content and delivery - every one to date has seemed a lot more like the "instructor" is just stroking their own egos rather than giving good input. But.....frankly, how much can you learn from 'generic' lessons in the first place. They're pretty much the equivalent of a 'quiz' in a women's magazine - time killer and quaint and of little value.)
It's entertainment not really golf instruction.
oh,,,, nevermind, Mike stated much more politely
I watch the Golf Channel all the time. right now I am like a sponge to golf info.
With time I'll learn what works for me and what doesn't.
That being said I have greatly improved my irons/chipping and approach shots using tips from Michael Breed.
Although the tips I do are probably common knowledge to most, its new to me.
I get bored with Morning Drive really quickly but often have it on as background noise while I get ready.
I love all the Golf Fix shows, the one with Holly golfing with pros and the reality show Big Break or something?
I also watch random golf play when its on, even LPGA. But I have liked watching golf for years. Like, since I was in 6th grade, like 12, lol. Its only recently I
picked up a deep admiration for playing and improving my game.
speaking of which... thinking of ditching work this afternoon to go play. =P
Can you explain what makes a pro golfer and guy who's been named Teacher of the Year before "not that good"? Just curious. I enjoy the show, myself.
