Golf Channel - Page 6

post #91 of 126

I don't go out of my way to watch it, and have not for the past several years. If we are out traveling, and the hotel's tv network has them, I might watch for a while. I am pretty old school and miss Peter Kessler, and Nancy Lopez when they would be on their programs. I don't have any interest to listening to their golf journalists. Just too much speculation, and innuendoes on their part. It's golf. How much can you report? You have one winner, and 140+/- losers at each tournament. The only programs I really miss are the old Shell tournaments, and the Bobby Jones series.  

 

The other issue is the extra cost it takes to get their programming on cable, or satellite. It's not a premium channel in my opinion, although I understand they have switched to a basic cable channel to reach more subscribers. I know it's still a premium channel on DISH. 

 

Most of my TV watching takes place on my HS internet/ROKU stuff. No commercials are a good thing. I watch the NFL, and MLB on a regular basis. The NBA I don't watch until the conference finals start. 

 

"Golf should be played----Not watched"..........:beer:

I don't own the sweet ride - I just get driven around in it. B-)

Add me to list. The GC was imho much better in the early days, like when it first aired..

The addition of developmental tours within the Euopean and Asian professional golf systems is giving TGC more programming opportunities. I watched the Moscow Open this AM.

 

This additional tournament programming is very process oriented - you just get the cameras and a few announcers into place, and go with it. No real need for creativity.

I'm just a lowly state employee.

 

But, hey, I'll pick up the tab for water...tap water. B-)

Someone has to be.  For some reason, no one agrees with me and tells me the truth when I say, "that drive carried 350 yards." :pound:

She signed one in front of everybody and I picked up her drive in the fairway. That Sharpie still hasn't worn off.

Peter Kessler sends me emails all the time about his podcasts for Revolution Golf. I should listen more but when I do, I always learn something.

It was a very bad attempt at humor from my side, I'm sorry.

Actually it was the funniest comment of the day. I spit up my coffee when I saw your zinger. Well done.

I think it is just not as funny when the poster doesn't get it or chooses to ignore it... But, he made the mistake of saying she signed my "balls"!!! If he said she signed my ball it wouldn't have registered!

He did confirm that she did it in front of everyone, I'm just surprised he wasn't embarrassed!

Ok back on topic I'm sorry again for all of this OT stuff!
